    So I inherited a nook color (yes color, not the newer one with the mic) and I decided to give Android a try.
    I bought a 16gb sd card, downloaded CM7 and all that good stuff.
    I have CM7 running, but at first I could not get gapps to install because I couldn't get the nook into recovery mode.
    I managed that, but now, oh jeez, it will go all the way through recovery and then hit a wall.
    I power it up after it's run through recovery, I unlock it, and then I get the message "Unfortunately, Setup Wizard has stopped"
    I hit ok, and then the message pops up again, and again, and again.
    I tried re-imaging the SD card, and re-installing CM7, no beans.

    I have all the latest updates, so what am I doing wrong?

    Should I just root the dern thing?

    That depends on what you want to do with it. Rooting just gives you (and the apps you run that need it) administrative access - like running a program in Windows by right-clicking it and clicking Run as administrator.

    Root won't change anything if you're not running an app that doesn't require root.

    Are you sure you have the right Google Apps to match your rom?

    The latest doesn't work for older roms.

    Google Apps - CyanogenMod
