My dad received a nook simple touch today for Christmas. I'm trying to root/jailbreak it so he can use the logos app on it, but for the life of me I cannot figure out how to do it! It's certainly a LOT more difficult than rooting an ipad 2. All the sites I've found that supposedly have directions have broken download files and such...I make it about 3 steps in and then hit a deadend.

Any ideas, anyone?

Thanks!

See this post in the Android forum to know it can be done (but he hasn't posted since September).

Can't help you with sites except to continue Googling.

Return it and get an iPad. Stick out tongue

definitely thinking along the right lines there, Alabama. I use my iPad all the time. But my dad will be served quite well with a touch e-ink device as he works on his mdiv...especially since I wrestled with the jailbreak last night until I prevailed.

I must say, if anyone is considering a jail broken nook as a way to use logos for simple reading, it doesn't look like a half-bad solution!

btw, I'll always have your back, whether in the Bible study world or if you're ever in need of close air support! =)

Apple has refurbished iPad's => http://store.apple.com/us/browse/home/specialdeals/ipad

Currently, Logos iOS app can do more than Android app; feature parity has been promised.
