Rooting the Nook Touch to install Android apps is a lot easier than you may think. I’ve been experimenting with a new method that’s over at the XDA forums. The entire process takes less than 10 minutes and doesn’t require any complicated steps and even includes Android Market access.
I put together this Nook Touch Rooting Guide to simplify the process even more for beginners. The rooting guide includes a video tutorial as well as written directions. There’s also a second video that demos some different apps on a rooted Nook Touch, including Aldiko, Kindle, Kobo, ezPDF Reader, the Opera web browser, and more.
