Nook v1.4 firmware hacked

The good folks at Nookdevs have hacked the latest Nook firmware. (I'm beginning to think B&N doesn't care.) The Nookdev v1.4 firmware comes with quite a few apps preinstalled:

  • softRoot
  • nookLauncher
  • nookLibrary
  • nookWifiLocker
  • Trook
  • VNC
  • busybox

You can find out more here. The usual warnings and cautions apply.

But I'm not so sure that you should get this firmware. I've seen a couple reports at MobileRead Forums about v1.4. Both users have encountered bugs.  You might want to wait and see if more complaints are reported.

Would you like to do more with your Nook like run other apps, download RSS feeds and web content, and in general use your Nook like the web tablet it could be? Then you should visit the Nookdev site, and see what they've done.

Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader:"I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."
