There is an auto image that you can download that does everything, including market and superuser at http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=872490. If you browse more into the thread he gives even more clear (and easy) instructions on how to use the image. It took me about 5 minutes, was simple, and my Android Market works perfectly. In fact, I haven't had a single problem yet.

I have not had a chance to even write my review for this thing because I am too busy reading or playing with this thing every night. I am so bad. This was the best birthday present I've had in years.

Coldsun, can you verify that the autoimage installed the latest Market app? I'm still using the older market, and when you do a search with the older market with the screen in portrait, you are not able to scroll the results (Scion mentioned that it does work and landscape). Are you able to scroll Market search results in portrait mode?

Did anyone have a spontaneous reset last night? Mine did and now while Market is still on my nookColor, I can't access the google market or utilize any of my rooted nook features. This guy over at the nook dev boards had the same issue.

I installed ADW Launcher last night and rebooted. I played around with it and thought it was nice.

However, I accidentally clicked for the stock NC launcher as the default the next time I rebooted. Now, I can't figure out how to launch ADW again. Can anyone help?

I noticed this as well, in portrait I can't scroll results. I'll look into this today.

I did have a reboot last night, but everything is still working perfectly. My only problem is scrolling search results in portrait mode of the market. I can still download and do all the other rooted stuff.

I downloaded a free app called "Home Switcher" that will let you switch your default home application and even set which of them is default. Easy to use and solves the above problem.

I was able to reroot easily using the SD card with the autonooter image on it. I might buy a small microSD card and just keep the root book image on it for future purposes. There is a shell command that you can run to keep the nook from autoupdating. Apparently there is an update imminent.

Now if I could get the ad hoc wi fi to work, we would be in real business.

I read the thread, but don't see the shell command or link to it.

Sorry, try this link.

Does anyone know if the adhoc instructions work on a Mac? I've only seen windows references.

Hi Scion,

How did you update your market app?

After overcoming the fear of screwing something up, I just used my file manager (Astro). It was smart enough to recognize it as a system file update and did its thing. Don't forget to rename the file to vending.apk.

1. Get the .apk from this thread:

http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=872621

2. Rename it Vending.apk

3. Move it to your microsd card

4. Use a file manager (Astro or Estrong) to install it from the micro sd card.
