    I have a 1.0 NC that is rooted and all seems to work well with the exception of installing non Market Software. I could not install the Nook Color Tools in the /system/app directory. That directory is protected. I installed it as an app using wirelessADB and the app installs and the "Install Non Market Apps" is checked but it does not work. I tried unchecking it and checking it again but I get an error message that tells me that won't work unless it is in /system/app. I tried putting it in /data/app but that

    I tried installing it in the /data/app directory and that did not help.

    I am using Root File Manager to move files.


    Any Suggestions?

    I am not sure about getting it to work in 1.0. You may want to factory restore and sideload the 1.0.1 (not 1.1) and reroot using the autonooter for 1.0.1. I was on 1.0 but went to 1.0.1 and it is much better and nook color tools is already included. I haven't gone to 1.1 yet because there is a bug with clockwork in 1.1.

    I have 1.0.0 and it works fine.

    I had to install it via ADB though. Do you have ADB working? If you do, do the following:

    I exactly that through a wireless adb connection.

    I have nuked it all and am stating over. About 60% back to where I was. Nook Color Tools works fine now though.
