    Like every tweak, hack or rom, use at your own risk.

    I followed all the instructions as shown above, and i was still not able to download and install apk files, went to the android market via the browser and could not download and install. I am requesting assistance on how to reverse this process that I did, so that I can put it right back to how it was, which is stock with the update that came out on the 25th of April. I appreciate your help, and thank you in advance...

    I was able to apply APK Enabler v1.1a successfully, but I'm having problems when trying to go back to ManualNooter. I did a complete factory restore as described here:

    Flash back to clean stock ROM - nookDevs

    The factory restore seemed to work fine. I can go back and forth between the stock B&N 1.2 and APK Enabler 1.1a with no problems. But after I apply ManualNooter (either 4-4-27 or 4-4-28) my nook just hangs at the "n" logo screen (the screen with the Adobe Reader copyright notice at the bottom). I tried multiple times, going from stock to 4-4-27 and stock to 4-4-28 (also with APK Enabler 1.1a installed to 4-4-27 and 4-4-28).

    I'm using CMWR 3.0.2.8.

    SOLUTION: The factory reset/complete wipe was actually bringing me back to the B&N 1.1 ROM (the version it shipped with from the factory, duh). Applying the B&N 1.2 update after the factory reset and before re-applying ManualNooter fixed the problem.

    Just follow the directions on either one of these pages:

    Flash back to clean stock ROM - nookDevs

    How to Do a Complete Wipe (Software Update & Factory Reset) on Your Nook Color ? | Inspired Geek

    If the original ROM on your nook was not 1.2, you'll have to upgrade to 1.2 after the complete wipe. Instructions are in the "Get Version 1.2.0 Today" section on this page of the B&N site:
