New must-have app for rooted Nooks

A new app has been released into the B&N store that is a must-have for anybody who has rooted their device.  "App Killer" by Pixatel has a "backup" feature that will back up your B&N Store purchased Apps to your SD card.  This allows you to recover your apps from the Nook Store and install them on the rooted device.  This is especially useful if you have set up a dual-boot system.  It works!

I'm curious about how to install a NOOK app on a rooted device or on the "Android side" of a dual-booted NOOK (which, in effect, is rooted). How exactly does that work?

I was able to install the simple minded NOOK games from my NC onto Android by backing up the apk files. Titanium Backup will do the same thing, as well as let you "freeze" apps in ROM that otherwise can't be removed. You might try that.

joshhud, this is the NOOK Color discussion area. You might get better responses in the HD area.

Re: New must-have app for rooted Nooks

The Nooko app in the Google Play Store will not run on ANY Nooks.  You need to run the internal Nook app that is already on the device.

2 Nook HD/8GB + 2 Nook HD+/16GB: B&N 2.2.0 rooted
2 Nook Touch (one Ltd. Ed.): B&N 1.2.1 rooted; Dell Venue 8 Pro: Windows 8.1
2 Nook 1stEd/3G: B&N 1.7.0 rooted.; Acer Iconia A500: Android 4.0.3 rooted;
Nook Color: B&N 1.4.3 rooted; Samsung Galaxy Tab2 (7.0"): Android 4.2.2 rooted
