    OTA Update

      Just wondering if *anyone* has received their 1.4 update via wifi. Thanks!

          Anyone? I only ask because I have yet to receive the update. I don't currently have a computer and it isn't easy for me to get to a Barnes and Noble.

            I am still waiting for OTA.  I received an email a couple of weeks ago saying it was ready to push out.  Hope it is still coming....

              I'm having the same problem. I don't have a computer that I can use to sideload, and I live 2 hrs away from B&N too. I've been waiting for the OTA update. I don't know anyone else that has gotten one OTA.

                AHA.....!   OTA = Over The Air.   Sure, yup, uh-huh, everyone knows what OTA OTA OTA OTA is.  But... I didn't.  Went to Support and did some searching and finally found it.  Part of side loading instructions.

                Yeah, could've just asked here, but just didn't feel like it because....


                A short story:

                While working in the pharmaceutical industry, my boss called me to his office.  His eyes were wild.  He was pissed.  He handed me a document from the FDA (Food and Drug Administration).  It was filled with acronyms.  As I skimmed it, he commented that with over 30 years in the business, he had no idea what the @#%$ing thing was saying, nor did I.  Then, to relieve the frustration, we both began laughing at the futility of the missive and tossed it into the trash can.


                The rule of thumb (always wondered what a thumb had to do with it), the first time an acronym is used, it is defined.  Similar to the above FDA.


                FAOY - -- - with love.

                  I got my OTA update last night, wasn't really expecting it.

                    Just got mine.  I just happened to check and there it was!  I thought I would never get the update.  So far, so good.

                      I gave up on waiting for the OTA update after a few weeks and after picking up a 10 inch android tablet and downloading the nook app for android, I forgot all about it.. this the first time I've even picked up the nook color in over 3 weeks - still not updated. B&N really needs to "get their act together" one of these days, or I fear they won't be around much longer. I'll check again in a week or so...

                        You do know that you need to have your NC turned on with the wifi turned on to get the OTC, right?  I can't imagine that you've had the NC on for 3 weeks.  But, maybe you have.


                        What 10.1 tablet did you buy?

                          I got home from work yesterday to find that my NC had updated.  From all I've read, there was nothing in the update that I wanted and I thought I was safe.  I was happy living at 1.3.

                            Yup, I just leave it on the charger - wi-fi on, no update love yet. If I leave it off the charger, it goes dead in a couple of days even while sleeping. (When I got it a little over a year ago, it would last almost 2 weeks off the charger with light reading in the morning and at night. I guess the battery is worn out. Plus the power button isn't working very well so I avoid using it, setting the nook screen to auto sleep after 30 secs. I picked up the Toshiba Thrive 16 gig. Really like the full sized ports HDMI USB/miniUSB/HDSD , and the replaceable battery. (Battery life is nothing short of amazing 10-14 hours of solid reading, web browsing, w/ music streaming, email, etc. W/wifi, bluetooth, GPS running the whole time! When sleeping, battery drain is almost non-existant, I was surprised to see it had only lost 3% overnight - over 9 hours. Also, the nook app for android is terrific and runs great, complete w/ page turn animations and syncs perfectly with my Motorola Photon phone. So, if the nook never updates OTA, im good. :-)
