Tutorial: Removing User Guide and Nook Tour w/ Soft root
I posted this info on another board, but it has not received much attention. I thought I would share the info with a larger community.
After searching high and low, I could not find a solution to remove the User Guide or Tour from my Nook. I figured I would save a lot of people some time and give them step-by-step instructions on how to remove these annoyances. I understand these files are not huge, however like I stated, they are annoyances.
You can only remove these guides if you are soft rooted. <-- Read again. Keep in mind, you are running these commands. You are responsible if you brick your Nook. Chances are slim, but I have to throw the standard warning out there.
I am assuming you already have a soft rooted Nook and have access to ADB.
Removing the Guides From the Nook.
The first step is to open a command prompt and connect to your Nook. You must be connected to your wireless network and know your Nook's IP address.
adb connect <Nook's IP address>
adb pull /system/media/guides/Tour.epub adb pull /system/media/guides/User-guide.epub
adb shell rm -r /system/media/guides/Tour.epub adb shell rm -r /system/media/guides/User-guide.epub
Re-installing the guides.
Not sure why you would want to do this after the hassle of having to remove them, but I wanted to make this an all inclusive guide.
Connect to your Nook and issue the following commands.
adb push Tour.epub /system/media/guides/Tour.epub adb push User-guide.epub /system/media/guides/User-guide.epub
