    I thought I would start this thread so we could get a feel for where everyone is at. Please let us know what you are running and what works and what doesn't work for you.

    I am running...
    -phiremod beta2 custom rom
    -1.1ghz kernel

    Everything basically works...
    -youtube
    -flash
    -nintendo 64 emulator
    -email
    -talk
    -launchers
    And more

    Problems....
    -Have to toggle wifi off and on after sleep
    -black on black menu items
    -have to turn screen off then on quickly to improve touch responsiveness.
    -shutsdown at sleep sometimes

    I am wiping my NC clean at some point this weekend.

    So I have now reserved my spot in this thread for wherever I end up.

    I am also running phiremod beta 2. I love it so far. Does anyone recommend a good keyboard to use with it?

    I have given up on Gingerbread on the droid, doesn't work properly for me. I do wonder how it works on nook. I like phiremod cuz flash works.

    I was using smart keyboard on phiremod but went back to stock cuz it works better I feel.

    I am getting frustrated with wifi cutting out on phiremod though.

    Except for UD, I have not used CM based ROMS on my droid. I wish an AOSP dev would do a source ROM for nook! Raidzero said he would if he had one, but financials have kept him away so far...
    I just use the multi touch keyboard. I don't like the gingerbread keyboard on nook - keys seem too short and small somehow... I also did not like swype on the larger surface - it works great on my droid though...
    I do wish the bottom keys lit up and worked instead of button savior and I do wish the wifi was not an issue!

    I adjusted wifi sleep policy hopefully that fixes phiremod beta 2 wifi sleep problem.

    1.1ghz

    So far everything except for My Apps in the Market has worked. The jumpy wi-fi is gone and after flashing n12 I gained an hour of battery life ;).

    I was exceptionally sloppy flashing n11 and learned my lesson.

    I've got to say the latest CM7 builds are dynamite. I picked up the trick to switch the DolphinHD user agent to Desktop and now Youtube and Vimeo work. A bit jumpy but watchable.

    Use Wake Timer app and you are set, works for all OS's: cpu on, screen off

    Thanks Rico! I'm not really interested in killing a battery charge that fast! I thought perhaps there was a policy setting that was preventing the wifi from turning on upon wake - so, for now, quick settings on pulldown menu and toggle wifi works, it would just be nice if that was scripted instead of a manual process :)

    Let's see:

    I am running HC v4 on SD card.
    Running CM7 nightly-12 on emmc with 1.1 ghz kernal
    I'm not really using Honeycomb much - just waiting for the real thing. Most of the time I'm using Gingerbread. Wifi, which was problematic a few installs ago, seems to be stable now. Also, after following some pretty clear directions, My Apps seems to be working just fine. I still get an occasional FC on some apps, but not often and not predictable. I am not using many games so I can't comment on that. The screen seems quite responsive. (I don't have much to compare it to, as I don't have any experience with android phones (or any smart phones, for that matter.) I'm still enjoying reading the forums and learning every day, and may very possibly try to set up a dual boot sometime soon. :D

    You can get Setting Profiles from the market.

    So, when I do a search for phiremod nook, I see a link to XDA with phiremod nook V4. I don't see anything about V2 BETA. What is the difference and is there a reason for one over the other, and if V2 BETA is the way to go how do you get it.
    Sorry to post a question instead of which ROM I am using.
    I was thinking of Nookie Froyo since almost everything seems to be working, I like Cyanogen builds but my wife wants youtube so my 1 yo can watch videos on it.

    To Darmeen - I could not get setting profiles from market didn't show up and when I used market.android.com, it would only send to my phone. i DL'd Quick Profiles and it seems to be working great! Will report as I have more experience with it...

    To Sir Robin - as I understand it - phiremod beta 2 is the last of his froyo-based roms. Then he went to GB roms based on CM's nightlies. Some of us prefer to not use CM roms... but that's another story and thread topic...

    and at least on most phones - the devs have not worked out all of the bugs - perhaps soon we'll all be nibbling on gingerbread, but after weeks with GB roms on my phone, I've gone back to froyo until some future time when it's more stable and user friendly. I cannot speak to Nookie Froyo as I experienced phiremod first and haven't had a reason to switch yet... please report back if you go that route!
