Greetings XDA Community,

First I must apologize I am certainly a Noob to anything "Root". I just purchased a Nook Color Used that came with CyanogenMod 10 installed. Tablet was quite laggy at first boot up, but after it installed all my google stuff and I rebooted, it seemed to run pretty well during setup and customization of homescreen and wallpaper stuff. Once I started trying to run apps, any would take FOREVER to even load. Especially Kindle (takes like 5 minutes).

Now the issue is EVERY app eventually freezes and I force close or it automatically closes and returns me to the home screen. Doesn't matter what the APP: google Chrome, Nook, Youtube, Words with friends, games, gmail, etc. Stangely though, the eBay app never crashes and runs really fast.

Can anyone help me figure out why m Nook color doesn't like any apps? Any suggestions? I will gladly share more information about the tablet if someone could tell me how to do it. Did I get a lemon?

BTW, I should note that I really just wanted to use this as a glorified e-Reader, didn't plan on doing tons of browsing, videos, gaming, etc. But, I can't get any of my books or comics to stay open for more than a couple minutes.

Working better

I tweaked the CPU Processing settings under the "Performance tab", navigation was much smoother and noticeably quicker.

Tried uninstalling, then rebooting, reinstalling, then rebooting Kindle, Netflix, and a couple other apps. The apps were still taking several minutes to load and would ALL eventually Freeze, or just close and return to Home screen. The 2 of 3 times the Kindle App wouldn't even load past the "Loading screen".

I chose to uninstall all my downloaded apps and find Earlier versions of them after I read that an older version of Netflix runs great. So, I haven't crashed an APP all day, including Netflix, Kindle, Nook, Chrome, Gmail. So, I am pretty happy so far. Web Pages in Chrome are slooow to render, so I install Dolphin Browser. Surfing the web is much better on Dolphin.

So far so good. Any recommendations for older/earlier versions of other Apps I should track down? Anyone else have this experience, where the most recent versions of APPS don't run properly on Nook Color running CM10?
