So my questions are
Can I load CM7 and still use the BN ereader app? My wife might kill me if she can't read her books! If so can someone point me to an android newb friendly guide?
If I cannot use the app what do you recommend I do? Is the kindle app any good compared to the BN native app?
The Nook app from Market is not the same, your wife will not be able to read her magazine subscriptions and it's also missing some other stuff like Children's books.
IMHO, if you want to mess around and "try an android device"
but at the same time avoid a scenario of "wife might kill me if she can't read her books!"
, or even worse, wife kills you because you wiped the Nook, then go get verygreen's installer
and put CM7 on an SD card.
So long as you install onto a compatible SD card, you will get similar performance as to eMMC. No "mixed results"
here, I guarantee you that you won't even be able to tell the difference.
You can mess around all you want, try out the stables and nightlys, overclock to your heart's content, fill it up with apps, browse and dl all the pr0n you can find, and when your wife wants to use the Nook, just take out the card and she'll have a completely stock Nook.
