if you haven't installed a home replacement, you'll find it in extras.

if you've installed a home replacement like zeam or launcherpro, open your app drawer.

Strange... not in extras or app drawer... is there a newer version of auto booted out there maybe?

ive heard several random people say market was acting weird today. i wouldnt worry about it unless it persists.

you could try going into titanium and wiping data for the Market app to see if it helps

I am trying to also install the Amazon App Store. My Nook Color has been nooted with ManualNooter 4-5-18 and 4-6-16, per instructions found through InspiredGeek.

I have combed through the Nook Color Tools app, but can't seem to find where in there I can allow non-market installs. Help!!!

Be aware that you've resurrected a thread that's nearly a year old. A few things have changed, so make sure you're aware of the differences between versions (see below).

What version of B&N firmware are you running? The procedures change between 1.2, 1.3 and (particularly) 1.4. If you used MN 4-5-18 and 4-6-16, I assume you are on 1.3. If not, you may have problems.

The necessary checkbox is at the top of Nook Color Tools. Unfortunately, there are some interface issues with rooted B&N, so the text is white on a white background. You need to toggle the "mystery checkbox" at the top of the screen by clearing it, then re-checking it. This will enable the installation of non-Market apps.
