    I purchased a N2a card for my Nook Color and installed it. For some reason the Launcher button doesn't appear on the home page. I found another icon that i can use to use the apps that are already installed but it won't let me install new apps. I get an "error" message. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.

    Yes, but what rom are you running? Stock, stock & rooted, CM7, MIUI?

    ... and I can think of lots of errors, which one are you getting?

    (Dang, I need to get my money back on that mind reading class. It just not working.) :D

    N2A uses CM7. Not sure which release, but it's probably the latest stable release, since it's designed for people who don't want to do the CM7 install on their own.

    So N2A is a sdcard with CM7 preinstalled on it.

    You DO realize that every time someone buys one of these overpriced sdcards, a kitten dies? :D

    Sounds like an issue for the person you purchased it from. Have you asked them for a new card or support?

    See the limited market sticky in the root section. If you uninstall market updates you should be able to install apps from Market.

    Four cats -- well, three plus a cocker spaniel in a cat suit -- all living
    -- AND --
    I have an N2A card.

    1. email to support @ n2acards dot com. They have been very VERY
    helpful for me.

    2. I chose to spend some money rather than spend my time. After spending a couple of evenings trying to gather all of the parts and make
    my own, I "wrote a check" without regrets. Though I'm a technical guy,
    there were too many uncharted details for me to wrap around in the time
    I wanted to spend on something without any guarantees of meeting my needs.

    My N2A Nook Color works wonderfully.

    My complaints stem from Android having too many phone-oriented details
    in its current incarnation. Since the N/C is not a phone, Q.E.D.

    Cheers,

    According to Dalingrin, phone apps on the NC are just place-holders and shutdown when it sleeps (unlike phone radios) and therefor don't use any power. He says that's why he can get a month of sleep time on his NC. This was a post on Rootzwiki which I just read last night. :D

    Like vendor required apps on phones, phone anything on N/C are in the way. I'd like to make them go away -- something I'm trying to do with folders and similar. I had already discovered that they are not running.
