Yup. Me too. We'll have to depend on SecurityBreach to give a shot, I guess. wink.gif

Nah, I have no need for an E-ink ebook reader. Heck I gave my Nook Classic to Fran in January as I never used it (I use my tablet to read books and never outsidie).

I think the one Fran has is the dual display model... touchscreen on the bottom, and e-ink above.

Eh, I looked into it and there is nothing to root with no added features avail. This one was the Nook Classic which is just the eink reader with a simple web browser and mp3 player, nothing more. It does an excellent job of doing what it is supposed to do thumbup.gif
