    I recently acquired a NC that is running 1.0.1 and would like to update it to 1.1. It appears to be rooted as it has Gmail, Market, NCTools, Superuser, and Talk installed on it. Can I just slideload the update as it says here Software Updates - Barnes & Noble ? Or do I need to reset it back to stock?

    Off-topic, does overclocking the NC really necessary? Is the performance increased that much?

    Thanks for your help in advance!

    Well you have a few options to get to 1.1 since you are already rooted:

    1.
    -Update to b&n 1.1
    -Loose root (note: you only loose root, all apps will remain installed. Many apps which require root will not work)
    -Use autonooter 3.0 to re-root

    2.
    -Install CWM recovery
    -Flash straight to Nook_Color 1.1r2 Rom

    Overclocking is not mandatory or necessary but going from stock 800 mhz to 1 or 1.1Ghz does make a difference in the smoothness and application open time of the Nook Color. An app called SetCPU also makes a big difference in the way the NC performances and quickness.

    Well both get you to the same place so doesn't matter. I've done both and if were me, I'd would go straight to option 2.

    Ask yourself if you eventually want to go to custom roms, full backups and overclocking kernels. If so you will need CWM ROM manger and CWM recovery for flashing roms and such. Some people don't care anythng about those things and just want to upgrade to b&n software 1.1 and be left alone. For those people, option 1 is better.

    I am trying to update to 1.1. After downloading the update from BN and putting it on the nook and it rebooted to install it but it then went into CWM. My question now is that can I use CWM to install the update?

    Nope. You don't need CWR to install official update.

    But why you installing official update ? if you do so, you have to root again. Better install pre rooted and it is good.

    I don't know it's just what I am doing. When it restarts to install the update it goes into ClockworkMod Recovery and trys to install the package but says "E : failed to verify whole-file signature" and "E : signature vertification failed" then "installation aborted" What should I do now? My internet sucks and it took me a LONG time to download this file and I would like to use this file.

    Thanks!

    No you can't use the b&n 1.1 if using CWM recovery, it's for custom roms.


    This is all wrong, you can't use/sideload or install the 1.1 update from b&n if using CWM recovery, get this file:
    Download!
    Download NookColor_v1.1.0_r2.zip

    Now none of my G-Apps work. They just close as soon as they open and Market says "a sever error has occurred. Retry, or cancel and return to the previous screen" What to do now?
