NOOKColor, the touchscreen eReader from Barnes & Noble that went on sale last month has now been successfully rooted. This is thanks to the good folks at XDA developers who have been able to install the popular Angry Birds game on the eReader as a “proof” of the hack being developed successfully.
According to the hackers who broke into the root of the NOOKcolor software, the rooted device is as “smooth as a Galaxy Tab” and that it has “potential to be an amazing device“.
There are no official guides or step-by-step instructions for the root as yet and we will stay on the lookout for the same to let you know once it is up on the XDA forums. Are you excited about the prospect of rooting your NOOKcolor? Write to us in the comments.
