I highly recommend trying this ROM out! After trying nookiefroyo and HC and using phiremod beta 2 for a couple of weeks as my daily driver, I expected compromises for some time yet concerning android development for the nook color. Well, I flashed UD 3.1.1 using the latest CWR and had no problems. Just like any android phone - none of this sd card business needed... Easy install - absolutely fantastic experience! Seemingly great battery life, tons of features, everything works except for youtube. Also, there is a slight misalignment in the lockscreen. But these pale in comparison to the smoothness and functionality of this ROM. Check it out for yourself over at udrom.com/forum Note: Update to Clockworkmod Recovery 3.0.1 or higher before flashing this UD ROM. Flash ClockworkMod 188.8.131.52 version from CWM recovery > main menu > "install zip from sd card": http://muffinworld.net/android/nookc...mr_184.108.40.206.zip ------------------------------------------------------------- NOTE: UD Tablet roms are different from phone versions.
