TOPIC: Hacking Nook 3g

Hacking Nook 3g 6 Years, 6 Months ago Karma: 0
I have a Nook Color and have managed to root it. I have just bought a Nook 3g for my husband for Father's Day. Do I root the 3g model the same way as the Nook Color? If the directions are different do you have a link to the 3g directions?

That's a little trickier. It depends on which hardware version you have and which version of the firmware was stock on it. I'm guessing unless you got a refurb it's the new hardware and 1.5 - but take a close look at the directions on this page. Some of the methods are trial and error and not very desirable.

I'd tell you there isn't that much value in rooting the 3G. There is no market, no real droid apps, just a few custom apps for the nook 3G. It's likely not worth the hassle if you are hoping to get stuff like you have on nookcolor.
