it's super basic and ugly right now, but i hope it will come in handy. i plan to expand and refine it as time goes on.

when you click the All Settings button, you'll see a list of all the available preference panels. note that some of them don't work. not sure why.

some highlights:
- Development > Auto Mount - turn off usb auto mount
- Development > Manage Applications - uninstall apps, clear defaults
- Battery Use
- SD Card and Phone Storage - shows available space in internal storage
- Testing > Battery Info - status, voltage, temp, etc
- Testing > Battery History
- Testing > Usage statistics

if you find yourself on a screen without a back button, remember that you can swipe left over the notification bar at the bottom, if it's showing.

for info on installing other keyboards, see this thread. basically, you need to copy your keyboard's apk to /system/app and reboot. if you haven't done this before, here's a howto.

new! to enable the non-market apps checkbox, you need to copy this apk to /system/app. if you have 0.1 installed, uninstall it first, then copy 0.2 to /system/app and reboot. this is necessary for the app to have the right permissions to modify secure system settings. the app will still work if you install it the normal way, but you won't be able to use the non-market apps checkbox.

as usual, i accept no responsibility if this messes up your device. use at your own risk.


0.2 - added install non-market apps option. apk must be in /system/app to enable this feature. filtered some unusable settings screens out. added some descriptions for the buttons.

i tried that and it says install of downloaded apks is not supported. and i have a rooted nook color with 1.0.0 using the auto nooter rom please help
