I haven't been on for many months now, and now I think I have finally gotten my nerve up to root to android. I have some understanding as I sucessfully rooted my Nook Color to run android on a micro sd card. I'm back using the standard Nook os, but miss all the apps on android. So, here I am again

I not familiar with the best version or procedure to use. The first procedure looks doable, but then I noticed someting caled fatcreamy. What about that version. What about the nightlies?

Is it pretty stable now. Is it woth giving up the elegance of webos?

Any pointers will be appreciated. Thanks
We've all been experimenting with various roms in the last couple of weeks and it's pretty clear that the regular version of CM9 is the most complete and stable.
Some of us have upgraded to Jelly Bean as it does have its merits for smoothness, but it lacks several functions, like the webcam or the ability to play certain games or apps, so the definitive answer to your question is that CM9, using the latest nightly, is the best for now.
You will not be giving up webOS as it will be a dual boot system, that allows you to boot into either system as you please.

Sounds tempting, nightmare. I'm on JB right now, no cam and a few apps that won't fly, but I do like it.
I'll have to give it some thought about going back to CM9.

Found it while holding down power button..which I never use because I click on quick boot icon instead which does not have screenshot option..hahahah.

FWIW, I have CM9 + Nova and have the same experience as you. No option in the 'settings' menu but I see 'screenshot' when hitting the power button

I'm thinking of doing just that, CM9 + Nova Launcher.
I've switched roms so many times in the last 2 weeks that I'm getting a bit tired of it, nd my backups never work.
For some reason, they all come up as bad MD sum.
Backups work fine on my Toshiba Thrive, but never work on my TP.
So, to make a long story short, I've got JB running super fine, but I wouldn't mind having the webcam again.

I use Swiftkey for my Evo 3D and absolutely love it. The intuition in completing words is amazing - It practically knows what I'm thinking (just think, the opposite of wife laugh out loud). It learns your texting habbits from your Facebook, RSS feeds, Twitter, SMS & Gmail.

Also has a cool "stats feature" That shows your typing efficiency, Keystrokes saved, typos corrected etc...

I have not tried the Tablet version though.

On a side note... Does anyone know how to "program" when Google Play auto updates my apps? I almost beat level 59 (out of 60) on Garfields Defense and the damn thing started auto-updating and screwed me up. I've been working on that level for a long time (I'm playing on my phone and not my TP, if that makes a difference)...

A simple "thank you" in a thread can make a world of a difference to an OP hug

I don't have the tablet with me. I remember each individual app itself having a checkbox for auto-updating? is it as simple as "unchecking" it?

..or you can always check setting, 3 dots upper right, to see if something is there.

Yeah... you can turn off the auto update by unchecking it in the Play store. I want the auto-updating... Just trying to figure out if there is a way to schedule them.

p.s. - I'm playing my game on my phone... no "3 dots" in upper right corner Dontknow

You should see those three dots somewhere though... for me it's next to my phones 'home' button

I think you can schedule it in the play store. Go to settings, and uncheck autoupdate. That will stop all of them from auto updating. Also, you can go to each app, and uncheck "allow automatic updating". I don't know how to schedule updates.

Thanks. I found the settings, but nothing about my app updates.

ok, so what is up with the in-stability of my system in the last month or two? I find myself having to kill extra applications on a regular basis. Im not sure if its a memory leak or a bad application but it is very frustrating to see the "Sorry, (blank) is unable to start". ive attached a screenshot of applications running, any clue whats going on?

2 anti virus programs at the same time?
I would uninstall both and stop every single process in that list.
