Changelog:

7/22/11

This is no longer needed. The new Netflix app works with no issues or fixes. Here is the link:

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1178312

7/17/11

Removed the USB Mounter feature; See Nook Color Tweaks.
Added support for different Nook Color setups. Emmc, Sdcard, ManualNooter
Put it on the market

7/4/11

Ad Blocker
USB Mounter - Mounts to /sdcard/USB. You must turn on USB host mode and have the device plugged in before using this utility. This will work even if you changed vold.fstab.
Failsafes - /system must be mounted to /dev/block/mmcblk0p1 for the emmc options to work or /system must be mounted to /dev/block/mmcblk1p3 for the sdcard options to work.

***********************************************
This is an app that will update your /system/build.prop file. It changes ro.product.manufacturer=bn to ro.product.manufacturer=HTC. It will also allow you to change it back. You must reboot for the change to take effect. This was designed for CM7. If it works for other devices or OSes, please post.

For SDCard users, DrSarcasmo has found a solution to get this to work. Update busybox. Here is his post http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...6&postcount=77

I added another app to this thread call "Nook Odds and Ends". It has a Netflix fix and Ad Blocker. There are eMMC and SDcard options. Some SDcard users are still having problems. Report any issues so we can this working for everyone.

PS: I fixed the Exit option and added the chmod command for the SDCard option.

ha, I clicked Thanks instead of reply... So you're welcome

Anywho, yeah, I was editing bulid.prop with vi in a terminal, so this is much nicer. I was really close to just writing a shell script with sed in it but hadn't gotten around to it yet.

So now my upgrade process..
  • Install new nightly, boot it and let it boot up and make sure it's happy
  • Copy adblock hosts file to /system/etc
  • Run NetFlix Fix
  • Boot into CWM
  • Flash latest OC kernel
  • Profit

Great minds think alike. This is just a sed script wrapped in an apk.
