    It seems Divine Madcat couldn't wait for dalingrin to get back from his trip and worked out a new OC kernel that fixes our funky Quadrant scores... if you have CM7 and have either bugged out of the OC kernel or weren't happy with previous Quadrant scores (not that I care about Quandrant personally)... try this one out!

    It is only for eMMC for now, and can be downloaded from here:
    OC kernels (up to 1100Mhz, Interactive gov, BT and DSP):
    Regular
    update-CM7-madcat-OC-emmc-032511.zip

    Extra net features (PPP, etc)
    update-CM7-madcat-OC-emmc-032511net.zip

    I just updated to cm7 v30 and this new kernel (not the net cause I don't know what it is :) ). So far everything seems to be working fine, but I have not tried Bluetooth yet.

    What is the net kernel?

    This is great; this new kernel doesn't block Youtube or movie files from playing, like the other Kernel did. Video still isn't perfect, but that's a known issue. Thanks!

    The only change I've made to my NC in the last week has been this kernel, and now today my battery life has completely tanked. Proceed with caution.

    I haven't noticed any change in my battery life. However, I think my b&n rooted setup lasted longer.

    The best battery life I've seen so far is my wife's which is running UD 3.1.2.. I think I'm going to install the latest CM7 and see how that works out.

    I dont know if its kernel's problem or I had it before, but i have almost -10% of battery when my NC sleeps for 8 hours during night, with no Wi-Fi on.
    How about U?

    Mine was dropping like a rock, then I started turning it off at night.. Then, the dang thing decided to stop booting up without the CWR card in.. So now I just leave it on charge all night.

    Hmm. Mine has been fine with reboots and general stability. I may go to the rooted B&N 2.2 when it's available and also have a either a SD bootable HC or CM7 build...

    Reboots are fine, it's from a cold dead powered-off state that mine has a problem. A few minutes off, it handles that just fine. An overnight slumber though, better have the bootable card within reach.

    How much "tinkering" with setup and widgets etc would you say you do? I view my setup as pretty simple. I don't have very many apps, only one widget, and have not messed with any settings. I pretty much just read tapatalk, play pocket legends, check email, and browse the web. Just wondering if you are doing more with you Nook to encounter those problems? Or maybe one of your prior rom installs has created some lingering problem?
