I got my NC last Thursday, v. 1.0.1, and wanted to update to 1.1. I followed the instructions on B&N support site to manually install update. I waited awhile for the device to recognize the zip file, install it, and reboot, but it never did. I connected the NC back to my computer and the .zip file was no longer in the main directory of the NC. I tried numerous times and downloaded the file a few times, but still no success. I called B&N support and they were unable to assist, saying I should just wait for the OTA update notification. I've since rooted with AutoNooter for v 1.0.1, but haven't flashed any ROMs yet. I've got GMail app and YouTube app working fine, but would like to update. I've got an OG Droid I've had rooted for about a year and have flashed numerous ROMS, restores, etc. I'm familiar with CW, Spre, RZR recovery, so I'm don't think I'm too much of a noob with Android. I just think it's weird the 1.1 update zip file always disappears from the main directory. I think the Nook's working fine. I've downloaded a book from the Nook store and was able to drag and drop a PDF file into the documents file, and view that file. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
