    Sue you can use lcd density changer lite. There is a copy for dl over at xda. It will not mess anything up as long as you remember your original value. It may work for enlarging your text.

    Thanks, Steve. Right now I'm back to booting Froyo from my sd card and I'm lucky to be there! I screwed up my NC and my sd card - couldn't get the Nook to power up, no matter what I did. The sd card was totally useless, (couldn't format it) no matter what I did. (Actually once everything got screwed up, I started trying to get CWR to help me out, but then I couldn't get out of CWR [this was before the total black-out]. It was a bumpy ride, to say the least! This morning, I started googling for "bricked sd cards" and found an SD Formatter. Downloaded it, reformatted my card, moved froyo to the card and used the card to boot up. Now I don't have any idea about what to do next. (I know that the folks who know say it is almost impossible to brick the NC, but I think I must have come pretty close.) I have visited forums all over the place and, yes, Google turned out to be a very good friend. I saw that some of you in this thread are on at least a couple of other sub-forums. Could you guys recommend a forum, thread, etc., that might be useful to me? (I've probably visited all of them in the last several days. :() Also, since I apparently can't get any apps into Froyo without having ADB installed (meaning I can't get ROM Manager onto the NC) do you have any one favorite thread for explaining the best way to install ADB. I tried two different procedures yesterday, both of which were very similar and were supposed to be "Dummy Proof". "HAH!" I did get the ADB software downloaded and the drivers installed, but once I got to the command line, I couldn't get any further.
    Sorry for the long post, I think I'm back to minus square 1.:confused:

    At the end of the thread "how to clockwork" we are trying to help someone with a similar problem. You probably need to bring your nook back to stock condition. See Ricos post towards end of thread and see if that works. Let us know if u have any more questions. I have both threads bookmarked.

    I think it's called Elixir. You can adjust the settings by a ridiculous amount too.

    You can transfer the picture file from your nook to your computer and then click on the "Insert Image" (looks like a little picture of a tree) icon in the reply tool bar and navigate to the picture. Alternatively you can upload the picture to a hosting site like fikr or photobucket and then grab the link to the picture. Click on the same Insert Image icon in the tool bar above your reply click the from URL tab and paste in the copied URL.

    If you do this from the "Go Advanced" reply button you can get a preview to make sure the picture is uploading how you'd like.
