Reason I'm asking is going into recovery mode, seems like a longer more complex process. And when it came to my phone it worried me. That's why I stayed with the stock froyo on my phone cause I rely on it for Phone calls and Froyo does most of what I need. So rooting the stock rom I deleted the bloat and moved most of my apps to sd. Hower with the NC it is only an reader. So to use it as a full fledged tablet I need to change the os. What I'm understanding is that if I root the stock nook OS I have to download Android market to download rom manager? Then I could if I chose download cm7 200? with rom manager and use rom manager to flash to cm7? Does this method require CWM? Or I understand I should have an extra 2 gig sd to create a CWM disk to use if rom manager fails. Then I would have no choice but to install CM7 through recovery mode? Then I have to install googles apps somehow? Not to ask another stupid question but what rooting app do I use to root the nook stock os?
