Good luck.

I'm on 4.5.18 not 4.6.16a. I had horrible luck with 4.6.16. On 4.5.18, everything works fine except for some permissions. I may have messed the permissions myself because they worked for a while.

Downloads are fine.

Interesting... I'll try going back to 4.5.18 next. I tried 4.6.16a and no luck--exact same issues. We're also trying my husband's this morning--with 4.6.16a first. His device was just recently reset back to stock and updated back to 1.3 and 4.6.16a. He has a standard build.prop unlike me, too, so we'll see if we get a different result, but I'm not expecting to.

Just for reference, the only difference between 4.6.16a and 4.6.16 is 'a' has the change to build.prop that 4.5.18 was supposed to have and 'a' also includes a script to update the database to block OTA updates.

The main difference between 4.5.18 and 4.6.16 is that 5.18 has an earlier version of the market (1.8 vs 2.3.6). After the 1.3 update came out it was found that installing the earlier version first (via 5.18) would then allow 6.16 and the newer market to work. At least for some. Some people reported going straight to 6.16 worked fine, but it didn't for me.

Haven't messed with 1.4.1 yet.

Exclamation Different kernel

The main difference for me (and why I never used 6.16) is that it came with a different kernel. In my opinion, this was bound to create problems as B&N introduced newer versions (eg, 1.3 and 1.4.1) with potentially different kernels.

Ah - you're right. Forgot about the kernel. That's why I used Dalingrin's O/C kernel, which he rebuilt based from 1.3. I never had any problems using 6.16 with Dal's kernel.

If I knew how, I'd crack open the stock kernel that comes with 1.4.1 and see if it's different than the stock one in 1.3. I think there are differences, so I haven't made the leap on 1.4.1 and dropped Dal's kernel in again.

Can some people give this updated version a try? Just install this after a fresh upgrade to 1.4.1, no need to install any prier version. I can’t possible test everything out, so I need people to report back with any problems that they run into.

* This does include the program HomeCatcher.
* It includes my flashplayer fix, so you should not run into any problems updating adobe flash or air.
* This will install android market v. 2.12, but will then upgrade to the current one.
* On first boot, make sure you select the zeam launcher as default.
* This does NOT have the added kernel file.
* Don’t consider this a released version.

What if I don't have a fresh 1.4.1 update? Unless you know a way to get back to a fresh 1.4.1 update...?

By fresh upgrade to 1.4.1, do you mean immediately after the applying the update and not trying any other nooters? Can I run the 1.4.1 B&N update over my nootered 1.3 and consider that a "fresh" update?

OMG!!!!! I think you've fixed it!!

I figured, what the heck, I'd just try applying this update on top of the 4-12-16-test update that GabrialDestruir provided as a test to resolve the issues with downloading from Market and BN Shop...cuz I could always go back...and Voila! As soon as I rebooted, my pending Market and BN downloads started processing!!!!!! Yay!!! You're AWESOME!

I'll test more and let you know if I see any issues.

THANK YOU!!!!

Okay. Now that I've calmed down from all of my excitement... Here's my experience...

1. I started from a 1.4.1 update that had been MN to 4.6.16a and then 4-12-16-test.
2. I wasn't prompted to select Zeam launcher. I had already installed HomeCatcher previously.
3. My Market was already at the latest version...and it stayed at that. Downloads work perfectly!!
4. BN downloads work perfectly!!
5. Gmail works.
6. Installed Adobe AIR from Amazon Appstore perfectly!
7. Rebooted.
8. Whole new, cool "welcome" screen.
9. Had to reset my wallpaper with Wallpaper Wizardrii because it was no longer filling the scree.
10. Everything else is still perfect!

Anything else you want me to check?

I'm having the same good luck as billingdl on a factory-reset 1.4.1 install. I reset the device using Quick Settings->Device Settings->Device Info->Erase & Deregister Device, rebooted, registered with BN, then immediately booted off of SD and installed manualnooter-5-12-18.zip. After rebooting, the sync indicator came on, and the device became nearly unresponsive for extended periods. After an hour or so of "settling down", everything appears to be working well. After reinstalling some apps, I have experienced hangs on restarting, accompanied by that sync indicator.

I've installed apps from the Android Market, downloaded content from B&N with no problems. I've also set up Enhanced Email with a corporate account. So far, I haven't encountered anything broken.

A few issues:
1. I would love to install Swiftkey X as a replacement keyboard. I'll try putting it in /system/app with Root Explorer per the Nook Color Tools note.

2. I think working around the B&N limited settings panel is going to be annoying. Has anybody tinkered with putting the full Android version on a Nook?

3. The google Contacts app is missing. I should be able to figure this one out.

4. When I pull up the Android Market in a desktop browser, the Nook Color shows up as "Phone".

5. Google Currents and many other apps show as not compatible with this device, although it was fine on CM7.1. I suspect this is related to issue 4. I'm not up enough on Android innards to know where to start fixing this. Is this a build.prop issue?

6. There is no way to select other calendars in the google Calendar app. I've got several associated with my gmail account, and unfortunately, the "wrong" one is showing. This is not really something essential, but if there's a quick fix, I'm interested!
