Software Updates - Barnes*&*Noble
Very pleased to see mention of Froyo/2.2 and Flash. I was concerned B&N would add pieces of Froyo and not the complete Froyo update.
Anxiously awaiting the sideload version from the Nook gods.
So this update is finally true.
I posted a few notes in this forum explaining why I thought it would NOT be 2.2. I was wrong.
I believe two things may have contributed to those findings:
1. First off, b&n is extremely secretive about their software and updates.
2. The nice contributors at nookdevs don't always have the most accurate of information.
Awesome! I can't wait to downgrade my Phiremod'd NC to this!!!!!!!!! Not But, if we get my daughter one for her birthday, I might leave it stock.. She's 6 and loves our NCs.
I don't know... to me 2.2 and 2.3 are two peas in the same pod. They are closely related, other than some speed and the copy and paste ability on 2.3 is better. None of them are close to Honeycomb. So I'm not sure I'd consider it a downgrade; getting the stock library back will be great. Hopefully we can get a quick root on this update to really have some fun with it.
I've already wiped my NC and flashed back to unrooted 1.0.0. I'm eager to see what b&n has put together.
Yea!!!! Ok. Now that it's here, what happens when it downloads to a NC with autonooter? Let me know if it does it automaticly or do we have to sideload or do we take it back to stock? I turned mine off last nite and I haven't turned it on today. Will be keeping my eye on this thread. Very excited

Not much of an app selection today - but I was happy to see EZpdf in their App selection - without any modification of the Reader from stock.
Can anybody checking out the stock Reader - check out the application and it's functionality.
They say both ways, same as all previous update. Which I'm a little surprised, since I didn't think a 2.2 update would be automatic. They must have a built-in backup utility to save your books, settings, etc. while it replaces the operating system.
Someone has tried.. you have to restore to unrooted stock to update. I am going to wait until it can be rooted before trying.
So after latest Froyo update -
the device can no longer " be rooted " with the current process outlined on various websites?
But Bootable uSD - ROM's should still be usable though - right?
How long do ya think it'll be til there's a new Root Process?
3. who knows
Just got home from a quick stop in my local BN. Was in the area so popped in to check out the demo unit with update.
So, its got flash. And the "extras" button now says "apps". The apps drawer had Angry Birds and a couple other new apps, but still very limited. There's a button to get more apps. This opened a "market" of 139 apps. Some I haven't seen or heard of. I did see Pulse. 139? Really? Really.
The Nook expert working the booth said I would eventually get prompted to install update when connected to WiFi, but says it shouldn't be automatic. Happy to hear that it will give me a choice on installing, because from what I saw today, I'm happy to keep my 1.1 Autonooter.
I may have missed or overlooked somethings, because I didn't mess around very long. There were other people waiting. I did however help convince a customer to buy one. Quickly told him about the rooting process
Disappointed. But at least its finally here.
