That's correct. In order to write the SD card (at least in Win7), you have to right-click Winimage and select 'Run as Administrator'.

OK...I rooted my NookColor. How do you install apps? I can't find instructions for that.

I found a little app that did not need the admin access the other required.

So, how do you install and app? an apk file?

Really simple:

You can now install apps directly using the ADB program in the SDK.

adb install package.apk


package.apk = name of file


I have to use:

./adb install package.apk

Do you have some .apk files? I don't know if you have an Android phone that's why I ask. I don't.

No, I am an iPhone guy even though I am not a big Apple fan.

Thanks for the info. I loaded Angry Birds. I gotta catch a flight in a couple of hours and I'm still not packed. But at least I have a cool game to play on the flight.

So, one thing I noticed is my 16 gig micro SD card is now only 40 MB since I loaded that image on it. Formatting doesn't get back the rest of the space. Any idea how to fix this?

I do not have an Android phone so where can I download these .apk files for the app?

This will give you an idea of what apps Android folks use:

A few apps can only be found in the Android Market or other sites require you have a phone to access them. Sometimes you have to hunt and peck for the .apk file using Google and hope someone posted a link to it somewhere.

Thanks. I found apk downloads for angry birds and kindle on the nookdev website. I'll just try those as a start. Well, I haven't really rooted my NC yet. I've been reading and trying to understand all the instructions but still nervous to make the plunge since I've never rooted any device before. It was also reported in xda-developer site that the rooting affects the ability for the NC to "read in store" so I'm still a little on the fence. I might cave at anytime seeing all the cool apps on the NC.

You have to remove the Nooter partition.

On a Mac there's no option within the Disk Utility to remove partitions. Instead I have to select "Partition" choosing "1" as the number of partitions needed. In effect, this deletes the Nooter volume and allocates the entire disk capacity to one partition/volume. Now when I mount the sd card it shows as Untiitled1 (available space 1.9 GB) instead of Nooter.

If your nook color is rooted, I recommend trying the new soft buttons (helps with apps that are fullscreen without the options bar). Go here to find the link to the thread:

I have some basic (dumb) questions about the NC when rooted. (Currently I'm just looking & don't have an NC.)
  1. Does the B&N purchase/DL still work th same?
  2. Does the sync with other devices still work?
  3. Do you need Nook for Android to read books?
  4. I've seen comments about Kindle for Android. Are there other ebook readers that you've tried? E.g. Aldika, FBReader, ereader, PalmBook?
  5. Does the dictionary still work (if you use the B&N reader)?
  6. Have you compared browsing speed with other mobile devices? If so, how do they compare?

Thanks for the help.

You don't lose any of the B&N eReader experience. All the functionality is there (dictionary, sync, shop, library). All of the original apps are still there. You do lose the "browse in store" feature. If you're in a B&N store you won't be able to read books for up to 1 hour.

I find the browsing experience with another browser (Dolphin Browser HD) to be comparable to other mobile devices. Dolphin gives you pinch to zoom, tabs, other goodies.

I've only tried Kindle for Android on the device. I haven't installed the others you mention.
