    New update?

    Purple_Ice
      Does anyone know if or when a new update will be coming out for Nook HD+? It should be update 2.0.7. I hope some major updates are in the works. We shouldn't have to rely on work arounds.

          I hope not. I'm officially more afraid of nook HD+ updates than I am of Microsoft updates, and that's saying something. I don't know if I can take resetting and redownloading everything yet again.

                That's why i haven't created any shelves and put books on them. I decided to wait until they get this fixed. I hope they do.

                  Yes, it's been quite a while since the last update. They had been sending out updates every 2-3 weeks but I think it's over a month since the last update.

                   

                  I love the comment where Htom_Serveaux says he's more afraid of Nook HD+ Updates than Microsoft Updates.

                   

                  Just yesterday Windows 7 'restarted and installed updates'. All it took was for me to turn my back for a few minutes and BOOM - everything's restarted.

                       :smileyvery-happy:  I have to agree with this sentiment!  The last 2 times the Nook HD+ updated I've had to deregister and erase and redownload and install everything on th Nook HD+ again as no book or app except the system ones will automatically download and install.. Its such a pita to have to do this again and again..  At work I have a new Windows 8 pc and it did a surprise update yesterday and I have to laugh at how Microsoft is addressing the nagging  "I need to reboot to finish installing updates"  messages Windows XP and Win 7 issue that appear on the desktop continuously every 5 minutes  until you close programs and let it update.  Windows 8 now says "Windows needs to restart to finish installing updates.  Windows will automatically restart in 2 days to install these updates."  LOL I haven't tested out the 2 day thing yet but at least you aren't nagged as much!

                        The pain of deregistering and registering would be alleviated by a decent backup system that could backup your app data, shelves, sideloaded data if you choose, etc etc existed.  That doesn't mean a deregister process is an acceptable solution, but it sure would make it easier to deal with.  I've lost game progress more often than I like and I hate redoing things I've already done.

                         

                        I've already proposed adding a Backup feature that is "Under Review" found here:

                        Perhaps if we get enough people to comment on that thread they will take more notice and we might see a backup method soon.  To be honest, why this wasn't in from day one sort of boggles the mind...It's a basic function of computing these days.  No one likes loosing data.

                            Yeah, that Automatically Restart in 2 Days thing in Windows 8 is less of a pain. It also gives you ZERO chance of avoiding it. 2 days is good notice though.

                            Rignes, I'll upvote that request if I haven't already.

                             

                            Yes, a backup system would be great. At the minimum for things like game progress and app data.

                        when was the last one?

                         

                        They definitely need an update to fix some issues
