    Software version 2.1.1

    Schwa

      Um, just saw this.  Installing now and giving it a whirl.   Anyone else?

          Nice find!     Not a lot of info as to what the "Importand system enhancements" are though.

            My Chrome browser does not jerk as bad when scrolling down pages.

              Update is now available through device settings.

                Google music now works properly.  I still prefer 3rd party player's, added features.

                  It's been downloaded for about two minutes and I'm disappointed. They did nothing to fix the shelving issues (my only real complaint) and I now have ads popping up every two seconds at the top of my nook for games and apps that I do not want. Awesome.

                    It looks like they solved the disappearing icon problem after an update. I updated about 35 apps and my screens are still full. A couple of apps I know got updated have not disappeared.

                        Some fixes include:
                        ·         CBZ reader, allows side-loaded comics to be read
                        ·         99% software update error has been addressed - see the NOOK Troubleshooting page for details

                            So sorry...but I upgraded to 2.1.1 and I got the 99% error yesterday.

                          I don't see any improvements with the issues I have! The wishlkst is still inaccessible and the pageperfect nookbooks I purchased still won't download.

                            I spoke with a customer rep earlier who mentioned two changes from this latest update:

                             

                            * .cbz comic files can be read properly now (broken with 2.1.0 update)

                            * Google Play Music app restored to library

                             

                            I haven't tested the first change, but the second did not work for me. The only thing that happened is that Google Play Music one again showed up as something I could install in Google Play, but it did not show up before or after I tried to "install" it. It also was not visible when I tried to manage my account & make sure that it wasn't deselected.

                             

                            Speaking with the rep I found that the official response is to wipe the device. That is far from acceptable and is right up there with "reinstall Windows" because an application won't behave.

                             

                            Just thought I'd share for anyone experiencing the same problems.

                              I'm a new HD+ owner and had problems downloading this update through the device settings.  After clicking on "check for update", my HD+ started to download the new version but the progress bar froze on zero progress.

                               

                              After waiting several minutes, I called Nook support and after a couple of ineffective suggestions, the support rep told me the only solution was to deregister and reregister the device.  Of course this would cause me to loose all my apps and data and I was reluctant to do so if there was another solution.

                               

                              While thinking it over, after 20 or 30 minutes of no progress on the download, finally I got a pop-up box on the device telling me there was a problem with the download and offering me an opportunity to try again.  I re-tried and it downloaded and installed perfectly.

                               

                              I'm disappointed that the support rep was either unaware of the "failed download. retry?" option or that she neglected to mention it.

                               

                              Based on my experience, my suggestion for those who want to manually install this update is that you follow the manual download/usb transfer instructions from your computer.

                                I have noticed that the Kindle app now offers a way to sort your Kindle books by title and by author A-Z or Z-A, as well as by most recent...however, the sort by author options don't seem to work!

                                 

                                Otherwise, I haven't noticed much different.

                                    I highly doubt this update had any effect on the Kindle app.  There was an update to the Kindle app itself a day or two ago.  If you have updates set to automatic you got the update and perhaps that's why you are seeing some differences.

                                    The swype-like feature of google keyboard was usually not working on my nook HD+ because it would act like the first character was being held down for too long so words weren't being recognized. After the 2.1.1 update, it seems like the problem has been fixed. Nice.

                                      I find its a little quicker to manouver through things and before my "Cosmo" magazine would not fully load but it does now! YAY!

                                      not sure, but I think the screen seems a little clearer... maybe im just excited about my Cosmo... :smileyhappy:

                                      Thanks software person...
