    Are you having a problem with the Youtube app?

    If not, the step is not needed.
    If so, install "titanium backup" app from the market:
    titanium backup > backup/restore > youtube app > wipe data
    or
    Nook Color Tools > All Settings > Manage Applications (alt menu -filter all) > Youtube app: Clear cache

    ...and if you still have problems, you will need to uninstall and reinstall the youtube app.

    Uninstall/re-install
    Youtube.apk
    Place on sd card and install with your favorite file browser


    On which rom, there are many and everyone has their favorite. See the Nook Color Technical section

    At the top of Titanium Backup there are supposed to be three tabs. Somebodyelse had the problem where they weren't showing but I don't remember the soulution. Maybe I can track it down.

    In the mean time, you can practice taking screen shots by holding the n button and quickly taping tha vol - button. A second later you'll hear a sound and a little camera will popup in the notification bar. You can then go into your gallery and see the screen shot. There are various ways to upload those pics from your nook to here (drop box, pohotobucket, transfer to the pc, tapatalk).

    I took the screenshot, but the image didn't show up in the gallery. After a reboot it did, do I need to reboot every time I do something on this nook ?
    Downloaded the rom manager, but it needs a formatted sd card, do I just format my flash sd card, or do I need to format it IN the nook ?
    Sorry, I feel like such a noob.

    Working my way through the CWR thread
    http://www.androidtablets.net/forum...m-manager-nandroid-backup-custom-kernels.html
    Up to the Nandroid backup part.
    I've downloaded the stock kernel and the 032811 kernels ready to be flashed.
    Slowly getting there, thank you AT community, it's not easy, but im determined to get there !
    Do I flash with a 2.2 2.3 internal kernel not knowing which OS im going to run, or decide that first ?

    Shouldn't need to reboot to see screen shots. You will need to reboot to see apps in B&N "Extras" if you haven't installed a Home Launcher. Zeam is a popular home launcher to start with but you can search the market for others. Then you will have access to an "App Drawer" which will update with the app as soon as the app is installed.

    You can format you SD card either in the nook or in a PC. If the card is already in the nook go to Settings>Device Info>SD Card>Unmount>Format


    You should decide which ROM (OS) you are going to run first then flash the appropriate kernel.
