Damn. That was one thing the novel could do that no one else could...

Unfortunately I'm getting "Force close" when trying to start the Nook app. Got it to work on my Hero and Back it up with App monster. Installs fine on the PDN but doesn't work.
Why install the Nook app when BN is native to the device. If you are running an alternative launcher go to your apps drawer and run PDSystemSetting. Click on the menu tab on the bottom and click on Reader. That will take you to the native BN app. When you exit out you will return to your alternative launcher.

It's just another option. It will be nice not to have to go back to the PDS original applications. And the PDS reader doesn't work in landscape (had to set the LauncherPro landscape only to avoid the blank screen if the PDN is turned the wrong way). By the way, you can access the original menu tab by starting any of the original apps, like the photo gallery for example.Update: Just checked the Nook app on my Hero and found out it's a portrait only. Bummer...

Speaking of the e-book reader that comes with the Novel, is there a way to set a shortcut to it? (in LauncherPro, for instance)Right now, I have to open the PDSettings app, then close it to get to the Novel reader app.

I use home switcher to get the PD home screen, which is easy access to the books from there. But yeah, it would be really nice to have the option of the Android reader, just to have the option.Also, the novel is the only 7" tablet with a 4:3 screen, so it still has something going for it. Those silly 16:9 screens aren't as nice in portrait.

The reason why the Nook app doesn't load on the Novel is because it is having problems with one or two libraries. I ran a logcat while trying to load it and this is what I got from the logcat.

I also use Home Switcher to get access to the PDreader and can easily switch back when I'm through using the converted volume-down button. Alternately, you can use PDsearch and open your eBook from the found list. When you close the reader, you're back in Panda (or other) Home.

The reader and your library will be shown on the popup menu at the bottom of the screen.

Do you still have to hold the power switch to get to power off screen and then cancel to get notification bar to work? I wish there was a way around that.

I don't have Nook installed so I'm taking a shot in the dark, but maybe try this.Use ADB to do the "remount" command.Go into /system/lib and backup the libpdf library that is showing up in digitalknk's message.Try reinstalling Nook app.My guess is that maybe PD has their own hacked up libpdf which skipped some stuff that the Nook needs to work properly. Since the PD one is already there maybe the nook just tries to use it instead of getting its own compatible version.

I suggest running "adb logcat" as digitalknk did so if it fails again you'll have some insight into why and be able to post it here.

Okey doke - Just did this and it worked - the Nook app is running just fine. (Cute page turning animation.) I'm unable to test downloading books as I have no wireless internet here.Note: This breaks PDREADER. That is, the Pandigital Reader doesn't work after this. Keep in mind that if you would like to go back to the old reader, you would have to do what clockworx recommends to roll back the change:

Just a thought....some of the messages in the logcat from the last page indicate that Android is looking for another library to fulfill whatever it is looking for. Maybe the pdn one can be renamed so the PDREADER still works?if you don't mind, try:adb shell mv /system/lib/libpdfhost.so.pdn /system/lib/libpdfhost-pdn.soIt's a longshot, but...hey, why not
