    Sounds great IP!! Glad it is working out for you. If I understand you, it sounds like the rooting you have done has turned the NC into more of a Tablet than just an eReader?

    i've always loved the 7" size of the NC and the BB PlayBook. Just seems like a great "carry anywhere" size.

    Aww I did nothing...just carefully followed other peoples instructions and hard work.

    I agree with you w/r/t stock NOOK...it's basically ereader+, which is fine for many people...and for those who want more, there's CM7.

    It's completely a tablet now. It's actually a shame that B&N isn't releasing these with the ability to live up to their full potential. It's kinda a waste of what is apparently excellent hardware. Not that I consider it a waste per se when people just use it as an eReader, but I think B&N could've cut WAY back on hardware if their goal was to just put out a simple eReader device.

    Sure you did -- you brought to my attention, and clearly that was enough! I've actually been aware that the NookColor can be converted into a tablet for a few months now, but it wasn't until several people here on my trusted Brighthand hangout did it that I knew it was worth looking into.

    I don't care how active other device forums are -- if it's not being discussed on Brighthand, it's not worth being discussed! ;) ("Welcome to Brighthand!")

    The date for the NC2 has been announced, 11/7. I'm interested to see what happens to the prices of NC1s when it hits the streets.

    Waiting can be a neverending game if you get carried away, but if anyone is thinking of plunging in after jig et al, it might be worth waiting a week.

    Thanks to you, IP, I installed the Nook software on CM7 and managed to configure it to my son's liking. If this holds up, I might have to install CM7 to internal memory like you. One advantage to Android Nook vs B&N Nook: read books in portrait or landscape. One disadvantage: My daughter's "read to me" books won't work. :( (a temporary setback)

    How did I miss this thread... :)

    Might need some troubleshooting help. Got a boot loop twice after rooting. Seems related to Flash auto-updating. I went the root rout. Are you guys satisfied with the dual-boot option?
