It took just under two months, but the Nook Glowlight Plus has been rooted. Now the real fun can commence.
Mike Cane reports that anew hacking script has been released on XDA Forums. Unlike the script I showed you last week (which installed tweaks and a new home screen), this script uses ADB to give you root access to your Nook Glowlight Plus.
If you already have ADB installed on your computer, the process is pretty simple. Instructions:
- Enable USB debugging in Developer options on the Nook Glowlight Plus
- Connect the USB cable and make sure your Nook Glowlight Plus is showing up in ‘adb devices’
- Extract rootGLP.zip and run rootnook.cmd (or rootnook.sh on linux)
You can find a link to the script, as well as tech support, over on XDA Forums. I don’t own a Nook Glowlight Plus, so I can’t help.
The Nook Glowlight Plus is currently on sale for $99, should you want to buy one. It has a 300ppi screen and runs Android 4.4 on a 1GHz single-core CPU with 512MB RAM, and 4GB internal storage, all wrapped in a waterproof shell.
