I've AutoNootered my 1.1 NC and I really like it a lot. I have the apps I want etc.
I like what the NC 1.2 firmware can offer so I've been waiting for the Next Autonooter . . . the threads here about the "Manual Nooter" process are very encouraging so I'm thinking about taking the plunge.
How do I get from 1.1 / Autonooter 3 to 1.2 / MAnual Nooter?
How do I restore all of my apps? Will I loose my user data, like my completed Angry Birds levels or Shadow Era deck, and experience points? (Awesome game, BTW - It's like a "Magic the Gathering Lite")
I have done some backups to the SD card with Titanium Backup . . . will this help?

You would have to go back to stock from autonooter 3, update to 1.2 via sideloading it from the B&N site, then do the manual nooter. I had never autonooted before, but from what I have read the manual nooting process isn't any more difficult than autonooting. I love my rooted NC, and if I can do it, anybody can!

My advice (and I ate my own cooking here, over the weekend for me, last night for She Who Must Be Pleased) is to do it this way:
- install Titanium
- do the most complete batch backup with Titanium that you can.
- make a CWR disk
- add the stock recovery image (to 1.0.1) to that
- reboot from CWR
- format /system, /data, /cache
- install 1.0.1
- skip out of box experience - your backups witll be a bitch to restore if you reregister
your device, but you need your device to be able to connect to your PC so you can drop
a file on it
- drop the 1.2 update onto your now-stock 1.0.1 device
- let your device go to sleep and update
- copy both the manual nooter and the Ham And Cheese app installer patch to your CWR
- if your device tries again to register on restart wtih 1.2, skip OOBE again.
- restart from teh CWR card.
- root and apply the app install patch
- boot and get the Market working so you can install Titanium
- restore your backup
Once you reboot, you should be registered again, your content should be there,
your old wifi settings should be preserved.
