    Hello All,

    I've been playing around for a number of days. I've made it back to stock (from full-on-brick).

    I'm now running 1.2, and I'd like to get my NC into a stable tab mode.

    Can someone point me to the appropriate links to make this happen? Perhaps I need to return the NC to an earlier version (if possible), as there is no system yet for 1.2

    I have so many windows open, with so many links and pieces of advice. I'm a bit confused. I'm looking for the right group of .img and zips to get it going.

    I'm sure I'm not alone with this desire, so on behalf of everyone. Thank you!

    David

    David,

    If all you want is a stable OS to make your Nook a useable Android tablet I reccommend CM7 for your ROM. You can test drive it on a bootable SD by following these instructions http://www.androidtablets.net/forum/nook-color-technical/13156-how-cm7-bootable-sd.html. The good thing about using a bootable SD is that you can leave your internal Nook OS alone for now or change it to somethng else and in effect have two OSes you can use.

    If you want to install CM7 internally you can find the files you need here Latest Version - CyanogenMod Wiki.
    1. Create a bootable CWR SD card.
    2. Put the stable CM7 and Gapps zip files on the card.
    3. Power down your nook, insert the card and power on.
    4. Once in CWR make a backup.
    5. Clear your caches, system and data.
    6. Flash CM7.
    7. Flash Gapps.
    8. Reboot.

    You now have a stable Android tablet to use.
