Rooted Classic but Can't Change Launcher

I'm kind of stumped here. I have my Classic rooted and everything seemed to have worked correctly. But I don't have any option to run another launcher so I can't get to any apps I've installed.

When I boot the Nook, I get two options on the LCD screen: "Home" and "Nook Root" and on the epaper part of the screen it says "Complete action using" and "use by default for this action".

I go to "home" and everything works exactly like my Nook before rooting. If I go to "Nook Root" I get the Nomad utility for firmware 1.4-1.5 with "Start Rooting", "Remove Nook Root" and "Exit" as options.

I see places that say I should be able to press and hold my LCD screen and get a choice of Nook launchers. I don't get that anywhere.

The only thing that I can think of that I might have done differently is that I installed TWLL's alternate firmware (http://twll.blogspot.com/2011/03/noo...rovements.html) pretty much right after I rooted.

I can get to everything through adb connect, push and pull files, install APK's, etc. I just can't seem to be able to launch anything!

Did I miss something obvious?

Thanks...

try to install Nook Launcher Ru:
http://code.google.com/p/nook-rus/downloads/list
-download the apk
-download android SDK (if you haven't installed it yet )
- adb connect 'Nook-IP':5555
- adb install ru.mynook.launcher.apk
Then Reboot your Nook
Then you should see Home & Launcher (yellow icon )
- select launcher (yellow icon )
now you are in ru.mynook.launcher
then hold your finger on one icon then from top left press +
then you should see you installed app there (if you've installed any yet )

Sweet! I could have sworn I installed a launcher after rooting but I must not have.

I'm in business now...
