    I just picked one up from B&N. They updated it to 1.2 for me in the store, but it is still kinda ho-hum.
    I noticed Auto-Nooter says "1.1 Only!"
    Anything for 1.2?

    Thanks!

    I don't believe there is yet. But you'll only need to wait a few days and something will be available. :)

    well you can do one of two things - you can root 1.2 - http://www.androidtablets.net/forum...d-stock-1-2-rooted-manualnooter-4-4-27-a.html

    or go for the whole shebang and get a custom ROM (CM7) which gets you the access to the market plus a whole slew of other goodies - bluetooth, flash, tablet like keys, overclock to 1.3 GHz

    keep in mind that moving away from the B&N version of OS you will lose the special features of their custom version of the Nook App...Like Magazines, read to me, and stuff for kids books...if those things don't matter to you (they do to my sister for instance) then you can jump to CM7 or some other custom ROM.

    If they do matter to you, then my suggestion is to hold off on rooting right now. What we have available for rooting 1.2 in my professional opinion, sucks! It is only half baked, and many things that work on a rooted 1.1 NC don't work on a rooted 1.2 NC.

    Is it an issue with a Nook Color or your Xoom...if its the latter, you are in the wrong forum to post an issue...if its the former, you simply create new thread.

    Any specifics on what things don't work on 1.2 rooted that work on 1.1 rooted?

    The market isn't working correctly Jonesygirl. Many apps won't install properly, or simply won't show up at all...apps that can easily install on Android 2.1 aren't able to install on 2.2...there is something not right.

    Thanks for the heads up. Today, I bought one for my fiance's birthday. It's not until the end of the month, so I hope the bugs get worked out by then. I still might give it to him early. Hoping for a fully functioning easy Autonooter soon :)

    I finally got it rooted and am running CM7 on it. So far I am pretty happy with it as is my wife. It's quick and I can run all the apps that I run on my Sprint EVO Android phone. It is a bummer to lose the nice Nook app, (I wondered why the free kids book that was included does not download now) but I wonder if anyone will tweak it to work on rooted devices? I guess I probably lost the ability to do any in-store reading as well??

    There are other options such as running CM7 or another ROM from a bootable SD or dual booting and leaving the stock or stock rooted B&N on the deivce if the B&N functions are important to you. The in-store function is also lost under CM7.
