    Running 177. I have noticed that when viewing web-based video that running CPU Master and setting the NC to 1200MHz and On Demand really makes the video smoother.

    When I originally rooted, I installed Clockwork Mod Recovery and Nightly 177, but did not install Dalingrin's Overclock Kernel. Therefore, everytime the unit boots, even though I have OnBoot checked in CPU Master, it reverts back to the 800MHz setting. Not sure why.

    The Dalingrin's OC was mentioned here:
    Download Dalingrin?s 1.1 GHz overclocked Froyo/CM7 kernel for Nook Color Download Dalingrin?s 1.1 GHz overclocked Froyo/CM7 kernel for Nook Color ? AddictiveTips

    Can I safely install this now, and will the max I can get from the CPU be 1100MHz (instead of 1200)?

    Any advice / insight appreciated. :)

    If you install a custom kernel you'll end up in a boot loop. You already have the latest kernel since it was included with #132 and builds after. Install Nook Tools to OC your NC.

    Thank you so much for pointing that out.

    Would you know why I am unable to "stick" the CPU to a persistent 1200MHz "On Demand" mode across boots of the Nook? Very frustrating that it keeps resetting to 800MHz "Conservative" when I power down and back up.

    Perhaps I'm using the wrong utility (I'm using Atutu's CPU Master)? Maybe the Nook Tweaks applet is conflicting. I see. Thanks again.

    Only use Nook Tweaks. I'd uninstall Atutu.

    I think I understand. Thank you and I'll give it a go, and let you know.

    Thanks in general for all the support, even though you've already given up your NC. It means a lot.
