It’s been out less than a week and the Barnes & Noble Nook eBook reader has already been rooted. Interestingly enough, it would seem that the eBook reader’s default custom Android system is installed on a MicroSD card. Upon gaining root access applications such as the terminal emulator have been successfully run on the e-ink display. For a detailed teardown check out the nookdevs wiki. [via AndroidandMe]
