          Great work! I have been using this since the first posting on XDA. It has gone from very buggy to very stable in short time. This is a really nice daily driver. Go ahead, give it a shot.

            What is this? I bought my grandchildren nook color for christmas last year and thinking of getting them N2A cards. Which are the best ones?

              This is good stuff. The developers deserve hearty thanks from the entire NC community.

               

              CM9 almost caused me to abandon CM altogether and return to the stock rom.

               

              I've used CM since 7.0 and I have been tinkering with CM10 since the 'unofficial' Beta3.

              Even as buggy as the B3 and B4 were, they still performed far better than any of the 'unofficial' CM9 builds ever dreamed of.  CM10 B5 worked pretty dang good, and the official nightlies work super.

               

              I have a stock emmc and boot CM off uSD.

                Thanks for the update, 'rock. I've found CM7.2 to be so stable, I'd more-or-less lost interest in the newer builds. Your post piqued my interest, and indeed, it looks like CM10 is in pretty good shape. I've flashed it to eMMC on my NC and will probably update the rest of the family NCs over Thanksgiving.

                 

                Nice to see a device deemed "obsolescent" by the manufacturer being kept up to date and useful by a dedicated development community. I need to go make another donation to the CyanogenMod crew that makes this all possible!

                    Thanks bob. :smileyhappy: Jellybean CM10 is allot more stable right now than the CM9 builds ever were. With nightlies being built on the large mainframe computers cyanogenmod has, since the nightlies are now "official" it will help strenthen that code and eliminate bugs. Each nightly will get better.

                     

                    Hopefully by Christmas CM 10 will be ready for a release candidate.

                        I'm finding CM 10 a bit slow on my single core NC. It's nice to run Chrome, but I'm not sure the NC is really up to it. For some reason, ALL the Web browsers perform badly. I'm wondering if some of the underlying code assumes at least dual-core processors, as the same apps are smooth on my Samsung. Still, CM 10 is much closer than I'd have expected so soon. Based on the CM team's prior work, I expect it'll be up to "OK for Mom" level soon.

                            Yeah but for some we can not afford a pricey tablet. Some around the world just being able to afford just the nook color will set them back a months wage.

                            Students too can not afford more than one device at a time. You can scrub code to look for any lines that utilize any dual processor options just by using a tool. Apps also must be rewritten to utilize a dual processors capability. Only your high graphic games use it on the playstore. As for the UI front, dual processing is overkill for badly written code.

                             

                            My browser experience with mods are buttery smooth, I would wager money it would beat your other device with a benchtest. Want a go at it lol.?  Check my link here for the mods I use at cyanogenmod to beat high end tablets on benchtests. http://forum.cyanogenmod.org/topic/61744-cm10-discussion-of-nightlies/

                             

                            Everyone at school wants my nook color just for how I have modded it. They try to steal it and get upset because their ipad minis will not benchtest against it. Got it on a lanyard through the loop just to keep other students from stealing it. :smileyhappy:

                        Just installed it.  Now what do we do?  That is, what fun things are recommended to us newbs to have some fun with it?  Or is there a guide for the features of C10?

                            Well, you've got most anything in the Google Play Store at your disposal. Personally, my first priority was installing and configuring Mantano Ebook Reader Premium to enjoy all my epub (incl. ADE & B&N DRM-encumbered books) and PDFs working in a unified interface with full organization and metadata features, regardless of source.

                             

                            You can also enjoy having a supported software ecosystem on a device that has now officially been discontinued by B&N, complete with current OS updates and a dedicated developer community bringing you all of these benefits at no cost. Although CM10 is still very much under development, the CM team has a very good reputation for quality. You can expect most issues to be ironed out quickly.

                             

                            Other than that, it really depends what your interests are.

                            But Nook app is so so so so so slow opening a downloaded book. No Netflix whats up can this be fixed? Great OS looks good other than these two glitches. If Nook app doesn't work faster my wife will stay with Nook OS reading her books quickly and easily  trumps everything.

                                There's a modified version of the Netflix app over on XDA that works on CM10. As far as the reader, I don't use the NOOK app. You could try another (I recommend Mantano Premium). Without a bit of tweaking, I still find the CM10 nightlies a bit sluggish, though they're improving. If you just want a snappy alternative OS, you might want to stick with CM7.2.

                                    Yes 7 is faster but 10 looks better and email is better  maybe over time it will speed up. The Nook reader is really a disappointment. Will check out the Netflix link in xda. Right now I am testing 10 haveing some fun doing it and have to switch back to Nook OS for my wife because reader is so slow in 10. Imac bluetooth keyboard pairs with 10 but doesn't type or do anything I can see? thanks for the info on Netflix I will try it out.

                                  A thousand thanks for you post, I have managed to buy an SD mobilty kit and use the 16GB u-SD card to run with 4.1.2 but am stuck there.

                                  After booting up with the new level of 4.1.2 I took down the NC and moved the u-SD card back to the PC and copied "not so full of bugs.zip" to the u-SD card.

                                  I then used thar in the NC with the Cyanomod Universal loader in recovery mode.

                                   

                                  I was able to see notsofullofbugs (hoping it is 4.2 not 4.1.2) going through extraction, so far so good.

                                   

                                  It rolls off the screen so fast I cannot tell if the process went exactly as required but I suspect not.

                                  After it completes boot up I have no apps and the level is still 4.2.1 build JZO54K

                                   

                                  I've read thru the XD forum but am lost about what to do next.

                                  Clearly a Newbie here, help would be fabulous.
