    Which method did you use to root? Multitouch is supposed to be enabled for the autonooter method. In case you're interested in doing it manually, you can try:

    NookColor Enable MultiTouch - nookDevs

    I also notice pinch-zoom doesn't work in all apps. I get it in most places, though: stock Gallery, Maps, Dolphin HD. Even Angry Birds. ;)

    The only place pinch zoom doesn't work is in the stick browser app. It works well in facebook and thr stock gallery. I'd suggest you get Opera (my fav) or Dolphin browser for viewing the web.

    Currently there is no full root or working recovery for the NC. We are all using some sort of soft keys application and the best one I've seen so far is Button Savior: xda-developers - View Single Post - [APP] Sidebar styled soft keys

    I rooted mine with the autonooter method and my pinch zoom is not working. Any help would be appreciated. I was not able to follow the manual method on top.

    Welcome to the forum!!! Which apps have you tried pinch-zoom in? Doesn't work in a few, like the stock browser. There's also a problem with the latest version of Dolphin HD.

    I actually got it to work in Firefox. I will have to play with some other apps.

    I've noticed that multitouch doesn't work in all apps. Nor does it seem to work in the default keyboard (hold shift and hit a key at the same time). I installed a touch-tester app, and clearly 2-point touch is functional. Weird, there must be something nonstandard going on (the way the latest dolphin browser, and opera mini don't multi-touch on the nook, but do on other devices).

    I mean it's not a big deal, but I have this cool galaga game and it won't allow me to move and shoot at the same time. So I die a lot.

    I tried to follow these directions, but in the command prompt I get Adb is not a recognized command or batch. What am I doing wrong?

    Ah, that's easy to fix. ADB (and sqlite3) are not in your system path, so Windows cmd doesn't recognize those commands outside the directory where they're stored.

    The way to fix that is to go Start -> Right click on Computer -> Properties -> Advanced System Settings -> Advanced Tab -> Environmental Variables -> System Variables and then edit the Path variable by adding the full path (something like C:\Program Files\Android\android-sdk-windows\platform-tools, yours may look a little different). Remember to put a semi-colon ; before the path to ADB. :)

    That should do the trick.
