Since 1997, you’ve been coming to BarnesandNoble.com to discuss everything from Stephen King to writing to Harry Potter. You’ve made our site more than a place to discover your next book: you’ve made it a community. But like all things internet, BN.com is growing and changing. We've said goodbye to our community message boards—but that doesn’t mean we won’t still be a place for adventurous readers to connect and discover.

Now, you can explore the most exciting new titles (and remember the classics) at the Barnes & Noble Book Blog. Check out conversations with authors like Jeff VanderMeer and Gary Shteyngart at the B&N Review, and browse write-ups of the best in literary fiction. Come to our Facebook page to weigh in on what it means to be a book nerd. Browse digital deals on the NOOK blog, tweet about books with us,or self-publish your latest novella with NOOK Press. And for those of you looking for support for your NOOK, the NOOK Support Forums will still be here.

We will continue to provide you with books that make you turn pages well past midnight, discover new worlds, and reunite with old friends. And we hope that you’ll continue to tell us how you’re doing, what you’re reading, and what books mean to you.

my nook about every 3 days.  Show me a ROM of theirs that can do that.

 

All of this might change when B&N decides to comply with the GPL license of the Linux kernel and provide the source code (as per the requirements of the GPL license.)  But until that time, it's simply not worth it IMHO.

 


 

Isn't this the source code? The link about 1/3 down after Attachement 1.

What is tell you that you have an invalid or corrupt file???  Your PC or Mac??  Your PC or Mac shouldn't even be looking at the contents of the file.   You are not trying to open the ".zip" file, are you??  You shouldn't be doing that either.

 

The instructions are simple:

 

  1. Download the file.
  2. Copy the file to the root of your Nook (not the SD card).
  3. Ignore any warnings your OC or Mac gives you.

 

Nooks: 2 HD+/16GB, 2 HD/8GB: B&N 2.2.0 rooted; Color: B&N 1.4.3 rooted
    2 Touch (one Ltd. Ed.): B&N 1.2.1 rooted; 1stEd/3G: B&N 1.7.0 rooted
Dell Venue 8 Pro: Windows 8.1; Samsung Galaxy Tab2 7.0": Android 4.2.2 rooted
LG G Pad 8.3 Android 4.4.2; Acer Iconia A500: Android 4.0.3 rooted
Customer loyalty is earned, not commanded or deserved, and easily lost.
Never suspect intent where incompetence will do.
