    Hi,

    i bought a Nook Color and want to tweak the tablet for my needs. I have following requirements

    • I live in Germany and want to run the Android Market
    • I want to use the Nook mainly for Browsing the web and read Feeds
    • Sometimes i want to use the Nook as eReader
    • Important to me is long battery life (so i need setCPU)
    • I need soft buttons which are there all the time and have the function of the ordinary Android buttons (Menu, Home, Back, Search)
    • I want to use only stable versions where things running smooth - especially WIFI
    So iam a little bit confused with all the ROMs out there. What is the best ROM for my requirements?

    Welcome to the forum. ;->

    CM7, and done. Only caveat is that SetCPU Profiles don't work, but I get 16+ hours of use easy. I basically play music all day and surf/check email etc and I have never gotten less than 12 hours on CM7. I even have it overclocked with the 1300mhz kernal and I still get stellar battery life.

    You really can't go wrong, the tablet tweaks lessen the need for a soft button app and 7.0.3 is stable, heck nightlies are stable and have been since 7.0. Plus there are some other improvements on the way from what I understand.

    http://www.androidtablets.net/forum/nook-color-technical/13156-how-cm7-bootable-sd.html here are instructions for a bootable SD version so you can try it out.

    Cheers.

    Cool, thanks for this information.

    Is also Android market running? Note that I live in Germany and need market access there.

    Of course the market works in Europe, I was in Italy few months ago with my nook ,no problem downloading apps. What you cannot do is downloading books from B&N but it doesn't seem to be your main concern,Androidin!
    Enjoy your nook
