Sony Reader PRS-T1 hacked to run Android

updated 06:45 am EDT, Mon October 17, 2011

Sony Reader rooted, can run third-party apps

The Sony Reader PRS-T1 has been rooted. While it has been known that the e-reader runs a version of Android, it was thought that it could not be hacked as the Android install was not a full version. As the video below demonstrates, a AWD.Launcher has been hacked to run on the device, although not all apps work.

The PRS-T1 is now capable of running third-party e-reader apps including CoolReader and FBReader. Access has also been made available to Terminal. The, hack, which is still a work in progress has not yet been publicly posted. Apps such as Angry Birds, for example, don't yet work.
