Question on Navigation on a Rooted NookColor

Hi all,

 

I rooted my NC last week and for the most part just LOVE it.  But I am somewhat confused on the navigation around in it now that it is rooted.

 

I have an Android phone - so I am somewhat familiar with the typical buttons you have which is Home, Back, and Options/Menu.  Though since I am a PC girl it's still uncomfortable to me to not "close" applications - and just hit back or HOme.

 

I used autonooter to root and I think the "SoftKeys" came with it - but I'm not sure..

 

So at some people's suggestion over on a App Discussion post I downloaded:

 

Button Savior - it never has worked - says "This app requires USB Debugging enabled to work proberly.  Please come back to this app after USB Debugging is enabled.  Enable now?  Yes  or No.  Pressing Yes does nothing....

 

Zeam - I think that's what I'm using.  I downloaded it and somehow I remember choosing the apps that would show up on the bottom of the screen.

 

Also in my App List I have

 

NookColor Tools

Superuser

 

Anyone have a link to any "after root advice and help"?  I've got myself so confused that I don't know what to do.  My main issue is a lot of time there is no Back button being displayed so I'm in an app - but I can't get out of it - the only option is to press the N button on the Nook.

 

Maybe I'm not smart enough to be a rooter?  To that end - I am smart enough to do a screen grab from my Nook - but not smart enough to get it from my NC to this message.  :smileysad:

 

So....suggestions?  on what app to use, which to uninstall?  Am I hopeless?

Do a search on the Mobile Reader forums and you will get a non-techie answer about lots of stuff after rooting.

 

Basically you have to give Button Savior Superuser permissions. Open NookColor Tools, Development, and check USB debugging.

Re: Question on Navigation on a Rooted NookColor

Hi jill.i am using button savior on my nc that was rooted via the auto method. Go to thre book color tools under the extras setting and go to the devlopers section. Place a check mark on the usb debugging section. Now try activating button savior again. You may need to reboot the nc by turning it completly off and then back on again. If button savior is active, you will have a small arrow on the right hand screen near the middle. Press the arrow to open the buttons up. The long arrow is back, the square is the menu, home is home. Sorry if this looks bad. Posting from nc
