Part 3. Epubor Nook Converter Tutorial

In the Foreword:

As of 11/29/2023, the Nook Windows app is no longer available for book downloads. However, B&N still provides Nook apps for Android and iOS devices. It appears that the previously effective solution to decrypt Nook books downloaded via the Nook Windows app is no longer viable.

Hence, the sole alternative for removing DRM from Nook books is by utilizing an Android Emulator. Downloading Nook books via the Nook Android app on this platform allows Epubor Nook Converter to seamlessly decrypt and convert all of them effortlessly.

Step 1Download a User-friendly Android Emulator onto Your Computer

Android Studio is the official integrated development environment (IDE) for Android app development. It is designed to streamline the process of creating, testing, and deploying Android applications. Android Studio is the preferred choice for Android developers, and it's freely available for download and use.

Step 2Set up a Virtual Device Manager

After successfully installing the Android Studio emulator, follow these steps:
1. Launch the Android Studio emulator.
2. Click on "More Actions" > "Create Virtual Manager" > "Create virtual device".

I tried to follow the guide, did everything as instructed. However every time I try to log into my nook account in the converter it keeps saying log in fail. I've tested it in the android machine, on the website, they all work but the converter.

I had this same exact issue (I got an 'Uh-Oh' connection error when logging into my Nook account from the Nook app within the emulator).  

Turns out it was my work laptop (VPN) that was blocking my computer from communicating info over the Android emulator.

I tried it on a different computer (personal/home use) and it worked just fine.

Epubor Ultimate

I agree with the posters who comment that Epubor Ultimate was bought and now is pretty much heading towards a dead end because of the selling of separate apps to do what Ultimate used to do. I also think that those who bought Ultimate should be getting some type of better offer for the other software for Nook instead of the software becoming obsolete and having to pay again for software to do what Ultimate has done for a long time. Secondly since I'm still trying to use Ultimate, the file locations for LDPlayer are not where I've found the files being downloaded which has been frustrating. I think that all of these changes could have been handled better and could have been much more customer friendly for those of us who have been invested in Epubor Ultimate for many years.

I have been trying to use these instructions all day with great difficulty..

Initially, I loaded the Android Studio and I got the initial screens you showed.  I selected the only option on the device definition which was a Pixel 7, but then I got very lost.  Where I ended up was with a virtual phone on my screen that wouldn't allow the nook app to be downloaded because the virtual device was not in the permissible list.  What the heck!    I am not a very techie person, so this method we have to use now is very foreign to me.  I have android files which I downloaded to a microSD card from Nook.  Why won't these work as it seems the only function of this whole Android Studio thing is to get a the files.  Cn you help me?  I first purchased the lifetime Epubor Ultimate Lifetime License before I found out it no longer works with Nook books.  Today I bought the Nook DRM Remover, but I am now stuck. Help!
