    Mine too. My trackpad is also just a bit crooked. Do you think it's a design issue or just poor quality control?

    My trackpad was also purple in the sun but only in the afternoon between 3 and 6pm. It was so annoying I called verizon to complain and was told they all do that. I said ok, but what about this peeling issue? They said keep it out of the sun. I couldn't take the purple anymore so I had to get rid of it and got a C771. Lucky for me it's water proof cause when I couldn't find it the other day I used my GF's phone to call it and she said what's that light at the bottom of the pool? Ah , my C771. Thank you. Must have slipped out.
    At least no purple trackpad or peeling. Hmmm, no trackpad at all

    Pull the battery and toss it (the phone) over your left shoulder while standing in an outdoor shower under a full moon. No more stupid trays.

    Hey Midd! Jaydee and I here for the long haul...don't you worry about themes my friend
    Ok, so how do I root the Nook? I need detail instructions, please!!!!
    Are you going to root it to Banana Bread already? I thought you said you were leaving it alone?????

    I'm standing pat on my NC. I will upgrade my bb and even do a hybrid but I think Im leaving that alone....till later when I'm bored and want to try something else.

    Can you still use it as a reader? The same way?

    Yeah, that NC is something, isn't it? Were you able to find one with the green dot?
    No I didn't. I got on with a blue dot. However, I did find how you can reformat the partition so it will not be limited by the 1gb. I have had it almost two days now and have tried four ROMs not including the stock one.

    Ok, so how do I root the Nook? I need detail instructions, please!!!!
    I will send you a write up this weekend with what I've found with the different ROMs and how to install them. It is really easy. I think I can write the instructions better than the ones I found so far so it will be easy to understand.

    I missed that one. Where did you find that? I'm buying more of them for my other three kids. And maybe one for me to futz with. Also, which OS did you finally decide to keep?

    I'm thinking about using just a stock root and then overclocking. My son keeps trying to use or download and use utilities that use the telephone components on his Gingerbread/CM7 NC. It routinely locks up his NC. I would like to find a stable HC port, since HC is tablet-specific. No telephone components installed on that one.

    Well I do love Banana Bread Seriously, tho I don't now if I'm going to do it or not. It runs fine for me right now, BUT I do want the option of knowing how to do it so that I can do it if I get the urge. Since there is no new OS to upgrade my BB, I have to mess with something, lol!

    When someone has a chance, could you answer my question about the NC? I want to know if after you do whatever you do to it, does it operate the same as my Nook now, or does it start up and operate like a tablet pc? Can you find all your downloaded books and mag subscriptions? Does it operate with tapping on the screen to change pages, etc? Just wondering if I even want to consider doing anything to it. Thanks!!!

    It will start up as a tablet. You can still use the the B&N reader. All the stuff you have on it that you downloaded from B&N will be available, I just did my wife's yesterday as soon as she logged in to her account it showed her books, but I think she had to redownload them.Yes, you can tap the page to turn it when using the B&N reader app. I do prefer to use FBReader because it will read a lot of different types of ebooks.

    If you are just wanting to use it strictly as a reader with a few other functions (e.g., web browsing) then I would suggest not changing the ROM. As an alternative you can to a partial root and overclock it so the NC will run faster. For me I like to have my as a poor man's playbook or ipad. I do have a number of book on it and really like reading them with it, but that's not the only thing I do so that's why I rooted it. It gives you the ability to have access the full android market with all their app and not restrict you too the B&N apps.

    Midd,
    I appreciate your reply. I think I might hold off doing this process as right now I simply use it as a reader and I kinda like the way it is. If it had it's own connection to the internet no matter where I was, like my phone using 3G, then I might do that. At home and at work I have too many computers that are "mine" that I use, so it's really not necessary right now to have a tablet.So i think....I will weigh that with what you said.

    Don't lose those instructions, ok? I might change my mind at some point. (Like that's never happened before!!!!!) HAHAHAHA

    Thank you for the info and prompt reply!!!!

    Hi Ramblers,
    Good to be back after some family time in my old home town in Iowa. Catching up on the posts and see a few new nook color owners. I also picked one up in Iowa. Hey Midd and 99, I have tried a couple roots as well, but did not have much luck. Used CM7 and also put honeycomb on a bootable sd card. Anxious to see your write up Midd. Nice to know there is a good reset option to bring the nook back to 1.2 when things don't work out. Midd, would you mind posting the partition instructions too? Have a restful weekend everybody.

    OK Ramblers! Good Sunday Morning!

    I have a question for you. Hamster and I are having a problem with Zona Snap and PhotoBucket...which is nothing new. BUT...I figured out what to do for myself: I have the confirmation sent to my handset email. My question...how did I set that up in the first place?
    You know my jaydee5799@vzw.blackberry.net email... How did I set that up?
    At BIS or in setup wizard?I'm stuck....
