    Ok..here is my question
    I am rooted using Autonooter.and have been quite happy.. but.. if I want to move on UP. .. do I need to take it back to basic stock and then update or can I go directly from autonooter to CM7 ???


    This makes me nervous to mess with my system again.Autonooter made me feel so comfortable and SAFE..... so may need a hand hold to get me over the hump or at least a GO TO IT ...... hehehehe

    Install CWM rom manger > flash CWM recovery in CWM rom manger > pick Nook Color (old) > boot to CWM recovery > flash (update) CWM recovery 3.0.1 > Reboot to CWMR > make a full backup > flash to Ultimate Droid Nook Color 3.2.5 > Enjoy.

    crenita you can install cm7 over your current one - in fact if you are nervous and want to try out cm7 first, i do believe there are SD install versions available (don't have the link handy at the moment but will post later unless someone beats me to it) - the SD install lets you boot of the SD and try out CM7 so if you want to go back to the warm and fuzzy comfort of rooted nook, just pop out the SD and boot

    now testing with SD might not give you the same quick, speedy performance of installing the system into your eMMC - but some folks have tested it on a class 6 SD card and reported acceptable performance
