i have read on some other forums, for other devices, that they have Netflix running on CM9...so if i am correct this is unique to our device and the CM9 builds we have available right?

I take back my Apex recommendation--I rebooted, and Apex is in a crash loop, and I can't find anywhere to change my default launcher app (I can get to Settings via the notifications settings screen), nor does Apex show up in the app manager. I don't feel like messing with it now so I just switched over to my CM7 partition.

ETA: I don't think Apex was the problem. On further reboots, I was getting an "updating Android" message before my lockscreen loaded, but it would abort without doing anything. I went ahead and flashed Eyeballer's latest OpenGL build and Apex is working again, though my launcher settings were lost (maybe because it's installed to /system?). Unfortunately, now all my Google apps are crashing, and reflashing the most recent gapps didn't help.

It is certainly not unique to this device. MANY devices do not have ICS at all. As I understand it, hardware acceleration is dependent on drivers that are not available as yet for the Nook. If they have to be "reverse engineered," it will take a developer with the skills and time to take the task on, and could take months to achieve.

If you have the skills, please feel free to go for it!

I don't think there'll be a dev who would go for it. We can wait for another device with the same chipset to get ICS. I'm not sure but I think the LG Optimus Black has the same chipset and has a confirmation for an ICS release (3rd quarter 2012 though..).

Default two small issues

Now that I've gotten my battery life issues ironed out, I have only two (small) issues that are keeeping my experience from being perfect so I thought I'd see if anyone had suggestions. First, with the default launcher is there a way to display battery life in numeric format in addition to the graphical? Second: I moved to an older version of the kindle app to fix all of the spacing issues, but on ICS (as opposed to my prev. experience with CM7) the fonts are out of whack and I will frequently get what appears to be multiple words with no spaces between them. Is there a known fix for this?

Thanks for making my Nook Color experience so good!

When is your ICS build from, and when did you last try the Kindle app from the market? The Kindle app has received some big updates in the last week or two and the text has appeared perfect for me with the non-opengl ICS builds I've been using from the last two weeks

I don't have my Nook in front of me, but there is a battery display setting somewhere in the settings menu

My ICS build is the non-opengl from 3-31. I just tried the latest Kindle App. I had not tried that version before, but I still can't find a way to shrink the margins enough to show the same page real estate as 2.05, so I went back. Thanks for the confirmation that I was just dense in not finding the battery setting - tried again and found it.

Thanks.

Not sure if this happens to everyone, but when Google Music is playing, doing something else just stutters the music.

That happened to me, briefly, today, with eyeballer's 4/22 build. For experimentation, I should have just rebooted, but I reflashed 4/21 (ok), then flashed 4/22 again and all is fine.

So, my advice is to mess around and see how stable the effect is.
