The kernel is probably the easiest part of the entire process.Not sure if anyone here got into the clockwork recovery boot loop I did... But apparently all you have to do to avoid it is to flash clockwork via rom manager then reboot the nook prior to using clockwork.
I am going to flash the overclocking kernel tonight.
I'm using an app to overclock. Where would one find this overclock kernel?The kernel is probably the easiest part of the entire process.
Noticeable speed increase too.

Download the Kernel from that link
Place it on your SD card
Reboot into recovery with Rom Manager
Install zip from SD card
Locate the kernel's zip file and select it
Once it reboots download/open SetCPU and you can max it out at 1.1 GHZ.
You mean it won't get out of clockwork mod?I managed to get mine into a state where it won't remove Clockwork from the fucking boot loader. FANTASTIC.
That's pretty much exactly what happened. I heard about the CWR Removal ROM, but haven't gotten around to reflashing it yet. I got the thing to fart around more than anything else - I just want 2.2 on it for development purposes.You mean it won't get out of clockwork mod?
There's a zip on XDA that is called something like CWR_Removal.zip... flash it in CWR, and then reboot. it restores the stock recovery. Look around on the development forum... it might be in the monster root thread.
I'm going to test it tonight, but I think after installing CWR via Rom Manager, you need to reboot the Nook before opening CWR to avoid the CWR bootloop.
I returned mine yesterday. The woman took a look in the box to make sure the Nook was there and that was it. She didn't even take the NC out to make sure it wasn't damaged.Take it back to B&N. Be all irate. "What the heck are you people selling me?" Haha
Had same Micro SD issue. Put it in a camera or something else. Use the format function on that device.Picked up the NC yesterday, rooting was pretty easy, took maybe an hour between reading, investigating and then doing. Hardest part? Getting the auto updater to put 1.1 on the thing, the root itself took less time. Still playing around but started building the new home screen, installing apps and learning my way around. It's not for the faint of heart, post root you are still left with a nearly identical NC that needs some attention to customize. I'm having a blast with it!
So far the biggest issue is getting my microSD care formated back for use on my Driod. Don't have a card reader and was using the Droid, then formatted using NTFS and now the Droid sees it as unformatted but can't reformat to FAT32. Looks like I'll have to pick up a reader and reformat again to get the card usable again.
Droid is the only device with microSD in my stable, got a new card coming in a day or two that has the SD "converter" so I can plug it into one of my (many) current readers. Hell, if I look around long enough I've probably got a micro reader somewhere.Had same Micro SD issue. Put it in a camera or something else. Use the format function on that device.
I had "borrowed" it from the Droid temporarily to run the root program and intended to put it right back into place. I try to format on the Droid now and it just times out, guessing that going NTFS was a mistake, and since it's a more recent android build than the NC figure it is not going to format there either. It'll get fixed up soon, I'm more annoyed at myself for just plunging ahead with the NTFS format in the first place. Should have checked the wife's Droid to see what format the card was, would have saved me some down time.You can format it directly on the Nook itself. Or is that not what you're looking for?

Yes, I have the kindle app on my nook and am able to buy books through amazon. but you must be rooted.A friend is thinking of getting a nook color. She wants to know if she can buy books anywhere besides b&n? I would assume if it was rooted she could buy books at amazon and use the kindle app...but that is just a guess.
Yea once the HC code comes out we're going to see a flurry of development for the NC. Good to hear about Cyanogen though. They make great Roms.Aside: Apparently the cyanogen team has gotten into developing a ROM for the nook. Apparently you need to run a new version of CWR on an SD card to be able to flash it. but I think it's a good sign that they are getting into making a Rom for the Nook... it should be good. This one is based off of gingerbread, and I assume that when google releases the honeycomb code (I don't think they have yet... at least not officially) then cyanogen will make a HC version.
Yeah I have Zeam, which definitely helps. I wasn't really utilizing it completely though as I wasn't moving apps to the homescreen, updating the bar at the bottom, or even changing its settings. After I did some of that last night it got a lot better.
2 other questions.
- How I do download/use widgets? I might change things around with that, but I want to at least figure out how to do it. I downloaded a widget app from the market but couldn't figure out how to do anything when I opened it. Open to suggestions on recommended widgets/setup.
- How do I take screen captures? I'll post what my home screen looks like if I can figure that out.
Really?This thing is amazing to read magazines on. The selection in the B+N store is pretty limited, but there are a couple on there I am subscribing to (BusinessWeek, Car+Driver...Good Housekeeping) and I really look forward to reading the magazines on it going forward. If they can upgrade the selection that would be a huge win. Do we know if there's any other way to get magazines other than through the B+N market?
How hard was it to install?Honeycomb on this thing is pretty awesome. Or will be once I figure out why the fucking fuck it gave me a 1GB internal memory partition.
I've got a hard on for putting HC on this thing, but waiting for a stable release. What makes it awesome, BTW?Honeycomb on this thing is pretty awesome. Or will be once I figure out why the fucking fuck it gave me a 1GB internal memory partition.
Just curious, why are you getting ads?Rooted my Nook tonight. So far, I love it.
Can't wait to start writing apps for it.
The ad is just part of the quadrant score app.Just curious, why are you getting ads?
My wallpapers look like crap on my nook... they aren't very clear at all. I copied the honeycomb ones onto my sd card, unzipped into a wallpaper folder, then on my homescreen, menu--> set wallpaper --> gallery (I think that's what I do... i dont' have my nook with me right now).The ad is just part of the quadrant score app.
Honeycomb wallpapers look great on the Nook.
Thanks... I'll give that a shot. Your wallpaper above is way nicer than the one I was using (the live Beautiful Widgets one).I've found that the best way to set a wallpaper is to just load it from the web.
For the honeycomb wallpapers above just open the wallpaper you like, long press on it, and set as wallpaper.
The others ways come out distorted for me too.
Do you know what version Angry birds that is? I was able to find version 1.2 (I think), but not the newest one. The new version is 22.214.171.124 I believe (that's the version with the hidden level frmo the super bowl ad). You can see the version number in Titanium backup."Battery Indicator"
Free in the market.
Edit: One more thing. If anybody wants the full, original Angry Birds you can download it below. Open the file with Astro File manager and then install. Worked fine for me.
If you want to, you can download "AdFree" which will get rid of all the in game adds.
I don't have the Nook with me now, but as far as I could tell it wast the most recent update. It had the "cowboy" levels that they recently rolled out.Do you know what version Angry birds that is?

Dunno. I gave it to one of the other devs at work who'd done it (with the screwed-up bootloader from my previous attempt), he gave it back 20 minutes later with 3.0 on it. Looks pretty nice, but a lot of apps won't install because it's not correctly configured (the Market doesn't know what to serve it). For what I wanted it for, though--which amounts to a PDF reader and occasional games--it's just fine.How hard was it to install?
