Is it compatible with Nook Touch Mod Manager?

domi.nos,
Yes, it does. In fact, it doesn't make any affect on NTMM since these mods touches a different jar files.

Is it incompatible with Google Market (e.g. does it bundle the TelephonyManager patches to get the market working)?

I really like the reboot feature, but for me, the recovery feature is just too risky. For example, what if I want to reboot but accidentally hit Recovery instead? Boom, Nook is gone.

Is there an easy way to create an alternate version without recovery? And if so, would you make it for me?

EDIT - Just found a great workaround!

If you follow the instructions here for installing the ClockworkMod recovery on the NST/NSTG (not just booting from SD card), then hitting "Recovery" won't insta-wipe your data - instead, it will do what it should do, which is boot into ClockworkMod recovery!

Awesome! The only thing I think would make it more awesome is to add a screenshot button like on CM7. I currently use DroCap, but it would be nice to have something integrated into the system?

i wish i had known this a few months ago.. i wouldn't have trashed my nook :(

i couldn't even post a beware for others, as i didn't have enough post count here

so i put it up on my blog http://nixventure.blogspot.com/2014/07/mod-extended-power-menu.html

as i couldn't reply to this thread in the xda dev forum, i am posting this here and hoping this might be useful to the developer and/or any users.

as the developer says, i found additional buttons for "Reboot" and "Recovery". i wanted to test the "Recovery" button, hoping to end up in the recovery mode. but the recovery button rebooted my nook, wiped data, performed a factory reset, and restored my original rom instead - all with no warnings or confirmations! so, i have now ended up with a pristine nook, as purchased - all mods lost, including root, etc. :(

BEWARE!

Hey Thank you so much.
Its always good to have organic solutions such as this.
After the Lock Screen activation invoked organically
this app should give the same organic feel. I agree with yattaro on the screenshot option.
If that can be added then this utility will be complete.
Now that i have CWM recovery installed to my device, this seems safe to install.
Keep up the good work, cant describe how much value these little tiny things bring to the whole Nook experience.

PS: i can't find renate's temblast reader(i have only her Library app) on her list of uploads, Can somebody upload one for me. want to give it a try.
thanks,

I totally agree, it's mods like these that really make a difference. Good job, antsm!

Oh, and aiamuzz, here's Renate's Temblast Reader you were asking about.
