I've got a problem with my Nook Color (BNRV200)

Tired of searching for a thread that tells you what to do when you need to install, fix a problem, need a recovery, etc. I have compiled a number of links to various threads by developers and others that answer questions that get asked a lot. This post is intended to give a site that will make finding these answers easier than a regular search. It will have a list of threads and posts with various helps, have a topical list of problems and sites which address those topics, links to common sites and app needed to get what both Noob and seasoned members need to work with and on Nook Colors.

You choose to make changes, flash ROMs, etc. it is your choice. You assume all responsibility for what ever happens. I list these links because I know they have helped and work for me as well as many others. If you need help with a particular problem addressed in these links, ask on those threads.

If you use information in any of these links make sure to click on the thanks button both here and in those links. If you want to write a thank you note also, that to is fine, but does not add to the "Thanks" counter. These people have worked hard for free that we can have greater enjoyment and fun with our tablets. Most get nothing for their time and effort so "thanking them" is their greatest return and the least the rest of us can do in appreciation. Credit and kudos are given by Authors Names in Post #2

Faster bootup
To get faster bootup you can disable the boot animation and save about 30 seconds from boot up time by adding "debug.sf.nobootanimation=1" to the build property file in the /system folder. This is a pain though if you keep up with the nightlies regularly like I do. I got tired of editing the file for every update or reversion if there was a problem with the newer nightly. So I created a script that goes into the Userinit.d folder that checks build.prop on every boot and adds the line if needed without any further intervention. The first boot after installing a new nightly will have the boot animation but no more till the next install when the process will repeat all automatically. Download the in attached files below, unzip, follow the included instructions and enjoy.

Installing CM11 and get Status error 7 or other problems - Must use CWM or TWRP (Download below)
Installing new CM11 and latest Gapps and no Google Play. Problem /system is too small.
The Prefered way to fresh install latest nightlies: If you do a conventional (no repartition) install using the smaller 01/05 Gapps and install the other Goople apps through Google play. They install into the /data directory instead of the /system. You can do this also with Gmail, Sound search (ears), Google TTS and Hangouts.

Alternate experimental adventurous way.
There are two .zips available that will repartition your Nook and give you more /system space and /Data space.
Dweatons mod of Leapinlarswork,, is here and will yield 1.1Gb /System, 2Gb /Data, and 3.6Gb /Media.
Mine is here and will yield 1.1Gb /System, 4.5Gb /Data, and 1Gb /Media. You must get and use a reformat 5,6,7, after the running the for dweatons get Leapinlar's here. For mine get it here. the difference is for his you must install with CWM before, mine works with Reverts to B&N Stock /system are available here.

Volume / Sound to low. Try Speaker Boost in Google Play. Caution:
Mine works great @ 50% boost. Be very careful above 40%, go slowly and safely. If you want to rename the DSPmanager goto post #6. If you have CM 10.2+ (4.2.1) you must do the renaming since the DSP version since then throttles back the sound levels.
