I really don't want to come across as if I don't appreciate the work that is going into the CM11 / KitKat builds for the Nook HD because I do and continually look forward to flashing the latest nightlies etc.

But does it seem as if each version from either variant available are less and less stable? initial releases seemed fine while each new version has more and more issues that seem to pop up. I just flashed the latest from the General forum here and lost Play store, once I reflashed my GAPPS and got it back I got odd green screen flashing and terrible performance requiring a reboot which black screened. I had to do a soft reset by holding the power button.

I don't know. Again, appreciate the work, saddened by the current crop, I guess.

And here I am wondering why I don't have any issues at all. Not one single reboot, no loss of functionality, nothing. I am running the latest nightly.

Did you swap kernels? Dirty flash? Etc.

Did you try factory restore after your google app install?
If not i try doing the restore in settings and see if it resolves the problems. Seems like it usually works for me.

If you notice the launcher is now trebuchet. They just started replacing launcher 3 with theirs. So things will be broken or missing. Same with others areas.

I always have a very recent backup and so it doesn't matter. 10.2 went though pains too and so on so forth.

If you want more stable 10.2 is right there. Backup cm11 in recovery and restore it later on when its more mature.

Smile So...am I the only one who....
Doesn't use Google anymore? Look, I mean I know the paid Koogle-aid dispensers will dog pile on me as a heretic, but CM on my nook is working great for me and in concert with other play stores all is well. I just don't see the need to put anymore money or information in Big GData's pocket.

Just one guys opinion, flame away

Rich?
I respectfully disagree. LL you of all people know of the massive holes and security flaws that gapps add to what is mostly a great open source system. I think if people really were to examine just what adding gapps does to your phone as far as adding in avenues for exploitation they wouldn't use it.

Have I said something technically incorrect?

I'm not disagreeing with your point, I just think it is interesting that folks tend to see big companies as evil and jump on them.

Yes, 02-03. I don't swap any kernels. Clean initial install and then updated from settings menu. And as I said, no issues whatsoever! Working woonderfully, no reboots, no lag, nothing! Just working beautifully!
The only issues I've had with CM11 was in the initial unofficial release there was a screen flicker now and then. That dispappeard a coulpe of releases in. And then last week (?) there was an issue with the screen rotating when putting the device to sleep. That did't have any effect on the device while running, but either way it's fixed now.
And as I said, not one single unwanted reboot! Ever! I have a 16GB HD+ and a 16GB HD running unmodified nightlies. Both of then problem free! I'm (of course) not complaining, just wondering how come some have lots of problems and others don't. Hardware related? Dirty installs? Messed around with stuff best left alone?
