Default Hello

Just wanted to introduce myself to this section of the forums.

I'm pretty new to Android, been rocking an LG Optimus M since the end of April. I have her running a ported CM7 rom and overclocked, totally customized.

I'm completely hooked on the platform, and should be picking up my nook Color in just a few hours. I can't wait to get it rooted and customized, then this old laptop will be put up on the shelf.

Anyways, just poppin' in to say hi. I'll be talking with y'all soon.

Sorry to hear that. You should try and pick one up anyway. They are great tablets for the price.

One word of advice, don't show off your rooted NC to anybody that’s not tech savvy because they will want you to root theirs for them. I made the mistake of bringing my NC to a family gathering and the next week I had to root 3 NCs. Two of which had been updated to 1.2.(this was a little harder to root)

You should be in sales. I showed off Phirmod at work and had some interest ("got to get me one of those"), but that was it.

So the guy backed out of the deal and you broke into his house to get the NC but got caught? And, while you were waiting for arraignment you decided to flash CM7 to Exhibit A?

But, no, it's not stolen. He just sold me another one he had on him (his personal) and he'd use one of his others. He has a couple of 'em, apparently.

Where they off the back of a truck down by the railroad tracks?

You know, B&N sells these things. Pretty easy to get. Don't understand why someone who has many would need to sell you his personal one.

Oh well, I don't have to understand. Enjoy.

You don't have to understand, but here's the whole story. I work at B&N, so does the guy I bought it from. Until very recently, we did not get any discount on any nook items. He bought several, I think to have one stock and one rooted. He decided not to bother rooting the extra(s) and several months ago offered it to me at a discounted price. I still couldn't afford it so it sat.

A few weeks ago, employees started getting discounts which put the new price where his asking price was. As a result, he gave me a better discount. I saved quite a bit over a new unit, that's why I didn't walk into any B&N for one.

Not to mention that the only advantage of a "new" unit would be the full one-year warranty which was promptly voided within an hour of bringing it home. This Nook is like-new, no marks and came with its box and original accessories.

Meh. You can always flash back to stock to reinstate the warranty. Or if it doesn't power on they are none the wiser anyhow.

So Dave, how annoying is it to B&N when people come in, buy a Nook, leave without buying anything else, take it home and convert it to a tablet?

Do people admit to their intent?

I've used it as a selling point.

I usually work in the cafe, though. Less stress than the bookfloor.

Wow, lasted almost a month... I think that's a record for something I really wanted and finally got.

Cracked LCD this evening, and of course nobody carries a replacement.

Fun while it lasted.

IDK, I've been thinking of selling my Xbox 360 for a while now, since games are so expensive and there's membership fees on top of that. I can't afford a Nook Color otherwise, which is why I had to buy it used from my friend. So, yea, if I can't come up with extra money, this is my exit.

signing off, extremely pissed

Bummer Dave. I hate that your broke your Nook, and that you'll be leaving us. Here's to hoping that you'll find a way to get another one, and rejoin our little gang here.

I've lined up a sale for my Xbox 360 and a spare LCD monitor. If these sales go through, coupled with the cash in my pocket, I should be able to get back up and running this evening.

Not sure I'm ready to part with my Xbox :*( but at this point I'm pretty sure I'd just miss saying that I have one, not that I'd necessarily miss playing on one. Haven't played on it in a few months, and not looking forward to renewing my Live again, so...

edit: on the bright side, now I have some spare parts, including a good system board. Maybe it's time to further investigate some hardware mods, like extended BT range, or even a working FM radio. With USB host working, maybe even integrate a small web cam in the spare case, and try and get it wired up internally with a switch to connect it to USB when usage is desired... So many possibilities, so little time...

Sounds like Nook Color > (XBox 360 + spare LCD monitor)

OR is it: XBox 360 + spare LCD monitor + $pocket cash$ = Nook Color?

Seems about right, still waiting for dude to come pick up the Xbox, though. Other guy's on his way for the monitor.

We'll see...

The DX needs wired headphones for the FM radio to work, maybe the Nook needs something similar.

Well I'm back, and although the downtime was thankfully short, the feeling remains bittersweet. The expensive pile of otherwise perfect Nook hardware sitting here now makes me rather sad. I hope I can source a replacement LCD, I think I'd much rather get my first Nook running again than try to Frankenmod it. I'd like to give it to my mom, since she helped bridge my gap to get me a new unit.

It sure did feel good to unbox this thing for the first time, though. It smells fantastic, too.

You could sell your broken one on ebay. You could probably get 80 bucks or more for it.

Do you really think people would be interested in the parts?

You wanted parts and couldn't find any. Are batteries available yet? Last I heard, no, but maybe that's changed now. It's worth checking into tho. You've seen the disassembly instructions, right?

I've found old hard drives that are only worth a buck at most, with just the circuit board removed and selling for $35 each. Lots of pics of numbers on those boards. I bought 3 hoping it would fix a drive that a part got knocked off of that still had data. Sadly for me, we never got data off of Mom's drive that I broke.

Hi...

First, the Nook is OK!

There's been some changes in my life recently that have left me with much less time to hang around on the internet. Don't worry though, she feeds me well and takes care of me, and loves my "tablet" too.
