Great app!
I've also disabled all BnN's apps (except Download Provider) + Google Partner setup and some other, that I don't use. Now I have 140mb upon restart and the device is working great! I've tried to install Angry Burds - just to see the performance, but the app says that it is incompatible with the device. Any ideas?
The only side effect that I found is that the apps should be installed only from Search Market, not from google play site. Once installed from the NST, they appear in my apps i google play.

Install some older version of AB from older .APK that you can find somewhere on the web.

Working on the glowlight?
Very useful thread. I have managed to get the latest kernel ( latuk's version here http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...&postcount=172 ) working and the processor overclocked with the new fastmode. All very zippy.

My problem is that I have the Glowlight NST and latuk's kernel doesn't seem to support it (glowlight not working). Anyone managed to get around this or have an uptodate kernel that supports glowlight? Much appreciated.

Would also be very interested to hear on the Kernel for the Glowlight.. I sooo want to install this, but need the light to work :/

I use v166 on my NSTGL. NoRefresh,fastmode2 and glowlight work on this kernel. There are not many differences between those kernels. If you don't need to use UsbHost, go for 166.

I have installled the kernel by applying the zip from CWM.

I am able to set the CPU speed via No Frills CPU Control so I know that aspect has worked. However I'm not sure what is going on with fast display. There is app for it in the App Drawer but when I click it, the screen just refreshes - nothing seems to change.

How do I configure/enable disable fast display mode?

Also more generally when using the Nook in Launcher 8 the screen just gets more and more washed out as you use it. It never seems to "clean" itself every so often as it does when in the B&N reader. Any ideas?

NoRefresh - contrast settings, works only in the current apk, you have to enable it every time you switch running apk (put a shortcut on quick bar or under a physical button).

https://github.com/marspeople/NoRefreshToggle/downloads

debug for FW 1.2.x
standard for FW 1.1.x

First run starts the service, second run changes screen refresh mode.


Fastmode - works constatnly. Sometimes generates ghosting (try to fiddle with OC settings)

fastmode2 - FW 1.2.x
http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=39529578

fastmode - included in kernel installation pack
for FW 1.1.x

You can only run one app at the time. NoRefresh or Fastmode. Running both at the same time will generate mess on the screen.

Looking for best kernel around for NSTG running 1.2.1. Need multitouch, fastmode, glow. USB host would be a bonus. Any recommendations?

Most of kernels around here except latuk's are based on 1.1.X sources. Sadly no glow support on his kernel.

here

This thread of course

Q: What actual benefits are there for running a kernel based on the newer sources?

Q: I've used the 166 kernel in this thread on my NST. I get serious lag that I don't get on my 1.1 base NST running the multitouch kernel. I've reduced it a bit changing the Governor. Is this because its based on early sources than the system is running?

I'd appreciate if someone can educate me on this: Isn't NST equipped with 800Mhz processor, so how come this kernel is said to be 1Ghz or 1.1Ghz?! Is overclocking 'bad' for NSTs? battery life, e-Ink screen issues, etc. whatever bad means

Overclocking will only affect life of your CPU. Depending how much you overclock above the CPUs correct frequency you will non-linearly decrease its life. e.g. running at 1.1GHz will decrease lifespan and risk failure alot more than running at 900Mhz. Bare in mind the NST or any android device does not spend all time in the max possible frequency. The Governor (of which there are quite a few e.g. ondemand, conservative, performance) decides how quickly and under what circumstance the cpu frequency should change. So you may only run at 1.1Ghz 5% of the time when the NST is busy.

So from a semi-technical point of view, if I may say so, one can conclude that: it's OK to overclock NST at 1.1Ghz.
