Google needs to have a box that you can check after the warning that comes up saying it isn't compatible, and you acknowledge it and want to buy it anyways.

This is the greatest idea of all time dude! Seriously Google needs to make this, we must get this idea to their attention.

I've Same question and on my market can't see many apps ex: facebook, viber.... Im try using search on market but cant see. On free apps, limited 40apps and can't show more.

I ran into this problem with MANY different apps such as "Modern Combat 3" Bejeweled and many others. So what I did was Use Root Explorer and modify the build.prop

Where it said "Nook Tablet" I just Renamed it "XOOM" saved the file and then rebooted.

Viola All my apps worked perfectly and the Google Play store let me download them. I have had no trobles at all afterwards either. If theres a Caveat to to this I havent found it yet.

I am running CM7 Alpha Final.

I think that Developers of Apps did this on Purpose because Barnes & Noble shut them out from their exclusive B&N App store. So the Developers punished the Nook by not letting the Nook use them. Because Honestley they all run just fine.

Just tried and the game closed after "checking licenses"

Thumbs up step by step?
I think this may be the answer to my question of not being able to download Google Play videos to my NT. I am a noobie, would you kindly give a step by step on how to find/modify the build.prop? Sorry for my ignorance, thank you for your help!

Sorry, i'm here for the first time and may write this in wrong tread, but...

I rooted my 8 gb Tablet. Everything works fine except one thing: when i installed apps from sd card with es file manager, they installed. But when i try to run app, there is an error "The application <name of app> has stopped unexpectedly. Please try again." What may be wrong?

Are you saying you moved apps to the SD card? If so, the Stock B&N version of Android doesn't play well with that. You'll have to leave them internal or use a AOSP-based ROM.

If that's not what you're talking about, then what app are you referring to?
