    1.4.1 question

    Ropebender

      I'm confused!

      I leave wi-fi on always. That's what I got a tablet for. I am perfectly satisfied with the list of apps available in the BN Ap Store. I love my tablet and have sideloaded books, music and whatever with no problem (have not tried to sideload apps, I figure if they are in the BN Ap Store, they have been tested and OK to use on my nook. Apps I sideload would not have that assurance, and might cause issues I don't want to have to track down.

       

      I saw a notice that I had gotten 1.4.1, but could not find anywhere telling me what it did. Can anyone give me a rundown of what changed, what bad/good stuff happened as a result, etc? My nook is basically operating fine except for an E-mail issue I am trying to track down.

       

      Thanks!

          Barnes and Noble states that 1.4.1 provides minor system enhancement here (under the "What's new in 1.4.1?" heading). It is not very specific, but other people have claimed to have found fixes added (like some people in this thread). Seems like the app updating system is working now according to multiple reports I've read (I haven't had the chance to test since none of my apps needed updating).

           

          A specific change I have noticed though is that when highlighting a word that begins on one line and ends on another, the word is shown as highlighted on both lines rather than only having part of the word (the part on the begininng line) shown as highlighted (probably not a good explanation, so my apologies :smileytongue:).

          • Re: 1.4.1 question
            Bad: App sideloading eliminated; roots unrooted (if applicable); calculator and calendar apps deleted. Good: "Check for updates" for B&N apps now functional. I honestly have not noticed any other changes.

                You can compare what's in the 1.4.1 update against the factory recovery file with diff, and get what is probably too much informationn -- but since you asked :smileyhappy:

                 

                The file presence/absence changes are
