That is so great. Can you post step by step directions? I'd like to root mine too but I don't have any experience and I'm afraid that I might brick my NC.

Perhaps a stupid question but once the NC is rooted, where does one get the apps and how does one install them?

Well, you really just have to Google search the .apk files. You can find just about anything if you search hard enough. I'm confident that eventually somebody will get the Android Market to work though.

To install, you can use adb on your computer (see the xda developers directions). Although, once you install a file manager like Astro or Estrong, you can just put the .apk file on your micro sd card and then install it from there.

search of .apk there are some apps like applanet.net that actually simulate the android market.

look at the xda-dev forum.

Don't have an NC yet but based on comments here I've DLed several apps. One might be interesting to y'all - Apps_Installer_0.2.1.apk. Supposed it will install the apps from your SD card although it may be easy enough without it. I'd be interested in hearing is it works (and how well) on the rooted NC.

I use Astro file manager for that, and it works nicely. The problem often is getting those APK-files since it's not possible to access the Android market yet. Takes a bit of searching on what you may call "less legal websites"...

Installing apps is a no brainer even though you have to use the command line.

One thing I did notice with the last couple of apps I installed: I had to reboot the NC in order for the apps to appear in the Extras menu page. Anyone else experience this?

Yeah, that happens with most apps you install to it. No sweat, install a bunch of apps and then reboot.

There is a workaround for that, you can kill the launcher. The steps are, from within adb shell:

$ ps

(note the PID of the launcher, com.bn.nook.applauncher)

$ kill <pid>

Then when you click on "Extras" the launcher will reload the apps.

Well, I would say that the workaround is as much of a pain as rebooting...but then I'm lazy!

Well, you could script it and make it a single command, if you were so inclined.
