Nook Simple Touch Gets USB Host Through Hack

nook with usb

The XDA developers user verygreen came across the pleas of an user obsessed with attaching an external USB keyboard to an eReader, he did what good hacker would create and workable solution. Using a loaned Nook Simple Touch, this self-styled Make-A-Hack was able to patch Barnes & Nobles existing kernel, which already supports the USB host mode, and send commands over ADB to enable connection. It is not a fool proof workaround, as only low-power devices will function without additional juice even so, at a cost to greyscale devices battery life. This may not excite you much, but its certainly made for one very satisfied forum dweller out there in net. Dont forget to look at the video. Hit on the source link to download.
