I am not really interested in web-browsing, checking e-mail, or running games. The only reason I would root the device is to get access to a decent PDF viewing and something that reads word docs. I don't even necessarily want/need to be able to download apps directly on to the device. I would be happy to just download the 1 or 2 apps I want on my PC and then just drop them in the nook directory when I have it connected.
1)can I do a "dumbed down" root? Can I just install the e-reader easy root and then just not connect with youtube/gmail?
2) does the e-reader easy root still work on NST with 1.1.2 operating system?
3) is this something a non-programmer type can do?
Thanks in advance for any useful advice.
I wanted to install Team Battery
on my NST. What I did is create a ClockWorkMod SD card and a ZIP install package for the APK plus a Home APK (Go Launcher EX
). I booted the NST with the ClockWordMod SD and flashed my ZIP file. Then I restarted the device and I can pick the default launcher or Go Launcher. Using Go Launcher I can browse the apps and manually start Team Battery, so now I see the battery level on the top of the device - very nice.
You can use this method to install any app you want, but you won't have root.
