    I installed CM7 RC4 yesterday and have to say it is amazing! Everything is working very well. I was even able to watch the NCAA Woman's Champ game on ESPN3 last night. Thank you so much to the devs that have expended so much time and energy into making this inexpensive device a real wonder!

    The only hick-up I seem to be having is getting Bluetooth to start. I saw in another thread (CM7 Release candidate 4 posted) that I needed to do the following:

    Rom Manager
    Fix permissions
    Hard reboot (hold power till unit shuts off)
    Power on
    Let sit for 5 minutes or more to settle down
    Now turn on bluetooth.

    Followed this and still no dice. It says "Turning Bluetooth On" for 5 - 10 seconds and then quits. Any advice?

    This is what worked for me:

    1. Turn off both Bluetooth and wifi.

    2. Reboot.

    3. Both Bluetooth and wifi should still be off. Now turn on Bluetooth FIRST. Wait for it to start up completely.

    4. Turn on wifi if you want to.

    The basic idea is that after start up, Bluetooth needs to be turned on before wifi.

    Hope it works for you.

    Gbeardmore, what did you use to watch the game? I am having the wrist luck trying to dime decent video apps.

    I followed this advice and it still would not turn on. What finally did it for me was to go into Spare Parts and UNCHECK Compatibility Mode. Once I did this and re-booted it came on fine. FWIW.

    So what is the issue you are having with bluetooh? In the newer versions of CM7 you don't have to start bluetooth first. Just go into settings and turn it on or off as necessary.

    When I try to turn it on, it stays on ''Turning on'' for a few second and then it turns back off again. Do I have to ''update'' cm7? It says Cyanogen Mod-7.0.5-encore in ''about tablet'' in the settings.

    Yes, that is your problem you are not using the latest stable release 7.1.0 which can be found here Latest Version - CyanogenMod Wiki.

    If you want to go one step better you can get an Release candidate for 7.2 here [ROM][CM7.2-RC1] MiRaGe - KANG build of CyanogenMod - xda-developers.

    If you are still a little hesitant, see if the quick and dirty link in my sign is at all helpful. If nothing else, one person said it helped them get a better mental picture of what is going on. Keep in mind, the step by step installs to the Nook Color not an SD card.
