    2.05 update is here!

      Minor enhancements, indeed.
        • 1. Re: 2.05 update is here!

          ..so on updating to 2.05 I lost all my apps, preloaded and purchased alike....

          Factory Reset brought my apps back, now just need to get it to see my sd card :smileyfrustrated:

          • 2. Re: 2.05 update is here!
            Please tell me one of the minor enhancements is a fix for shelves? Pretty please? :smileywink: Seriously though, if anyone can post their experience with the new update in detail, that would be great! I think I'm going to wait for the automatic update since I can't actually connect my Nook hd to my powerbook and I think it will be less problematic with apps etc. from what others said on here. Here's hoping their 'minor enhancement' update enhances my spazzy Nook and doesn't make it worse :/ Thanks!

              There doesn't appear to be a shelving fix. I just created one shelf and placed 200 books on it., 198 of them were sideloaded content. I rebooted my HD+ and all but the two B&N content books went puff! I will have to see how long the two tnat remained will stay.

                don't seem to have the ability to manage content for shelves anymore. Guess they assumed we didn't need it if we couldn't keep them anyway.

                • 5. Re: 2.05 update is here!

                  well I did a test for shelves. After adding one and adding some books to it, I then hooked up to the pc and browsed a bit before unhooking. That used to be enough to cause me to lose my shelves. Not so this time.

                   

                  Okay..next, let's open Calibre and hook it up again. Calibre saw it and I waited a minute or two before ejecting it in Calibre and unplugging my usb again. Yeah, my shelf and books are still there.

                   

                  Last test. Hook up again, have Calibre add a few books to my main memory, eject, unplug, check...

                  Shelves still there.

                   

                  Now we'll see if it's permanent but if so..YEAH!! I'm going to wait though to make sure. I am still planning to use my Calibre server because it's there and I'm lazy....but I do want to be able to see my sideloaded covers so I want to be able to shelve them separate from the main library so I can browse them on my device when I want to. 

                   

                  Interested to know the results for others.

                    What does having a laptop connection have to do with manual updating?

                     

                    The same WiFi connection used by a pushed update can be used for a manual update. Go to Settings/All Settings/Device Information and tap on the displayed version number to initiatethe check for an update; the device should find an update and provide to download and install it.

                      Thanks! I didn't realize I could get the Nook update on my Nook hd like this! In the past with my Nook color we always went to the B&N link using my PowerBook (when it wasn't considered irrelevant with the new devices) and downloaded it through the USB cord. I'll do this in a bit.

                        I updated to 2.0.5 and I have noticed an increased performance on my Nook HD+. When scrolling through my shelves, my library, the shop - things are much faster and smoother.  Things just seem to run better. My shelves have stayed intact and I have to say that even before the new update my shelves have stayed intact for the past month. 

                         

                        Also the manage content option is available for me when I press and hold on a shelf.

                          Same problem here. I am posting from my PC because there is no browser on my Nook HD+ (or no link to it). The update happened automatically sometime this afternoon or evening and there was a notification for it. When I tapped on the notification message for more info, it asked what browser to use, Dolphin, KidsBrowser, or Maxthon. I had previously installed Dolphin and Maxthon. The standard builtin browser was not an option.

                          So the factory reset is the fix? I tried the Chat support option, but that is unavailable due to excessive wait time. That's a surprise. How does something like this happen?

                          Also discovered a problem with the recent update to my Nook Simple Touch. Books checked out from the library were unreadable. Had to delete all the Adobe Digital Edition directories and re-download the books.

                            Since the update, I cannot power on my Nook HD if I completely power it off.  I have to plug it in to get it to turn back on and the battery is at 75%  Fabulous

                            • 11. Re: 2.05 update is here!

                              Well, I got hit with the 2.05 update last night and, sure enough, my home page no longer has a "Web" or "Email" icon, all my apps appear to be gone, as well as my entire library.

                               

                              I've gone through this thread and the only applicable entries I see are to edit profiles and restore access to some of the items like the web browser and apps.  However, I've never set up any profiles and I don't see any place to edit them under any of the settings.

                               

                              Not sure what "erase and deregister" does.  Just re-register and everything magically re-appears?

                               

                              I've been a staunch fan and supporter of B&N and the nook since the 1st edition, but I'm having my doubts now.  It's been years and they still don't have this software stuff figured out.  Did they not see the reports of these problems?  I work for a software company and if we had issues like this I can guarantee you we would have stopped rolling out the update until they were resolved.  A generic androd tablet is seeming like a better idea all the time....

                               

                              But that's for future Homer to worry about.  Is there an authoritative resolution to this, or just try everything listed and hope for the best?

                               

                              Thanks to all.

                                I was out of the country for a few days when the update was first launched, so I was unaware there was one cominhg. This morning, I was surprised to see my Nook HD+ getting the update over the air.  I was somewhat apprehensive, however, to my surprise, and once the device restarted, everything was there and the device was and still IS working properly.  I guess I am a lucky Nook owner.

                                  Mine has worked great too plus just got my n2a card and I am loving it.

                                    I got me Nook HD+ for Christmas today and am happy to say setup was uneventful, the HD downloaded the 2.05 update while setting. It downloaded all my books, magazines and apps an they work properly!
