Now that I've gotten the Market to work etc,anyone know if the Nook app from the Market will work on our PDN's?I haven't downloaded it yet to try but thought I'd see if anyone has had success with Nook without having to alter much if anything.

So, I can get the Nook app running, but when trying to read purchased book from B&N site, several pages display, then a blank page shows up. Several more pages are there, then another blank one.It has to be something on the PDN as I can see all of the pages when reading on the PC.Any thoughts?? :confused: Thanks.

If you rotate the screen and then rotate back to the screen's original position, it will then display the page again.

It is not very elegant, but at least it works.I hope there is some sort of fix for this in the future, just not sure if it is a Nook app issue, or how the app is being used on the PDN.

If we could just get Nook working with the 8/06 firmware, I think I'd be a happy camper.

[quote name='thedarkbackward;45126]No problem! If we could just get Nook working with the 8/06 firmware' date=' I think I'd be a happy camper.[/QUOTE'] How about the 8/20 firmware? I just tried 2 recent Nook apk's pointed from Slatedroid, and don't even get as far as y'all seemed to. I am mainly interested in getting it working to see if I can use it while in the BN store to "preview" books with their free in-store reading deal. I found last night that I cannot get that to show up with the PDN's stock BN reader - discussed it with one of the "booksellers" there, and she said that was her understanding: if it is not a Nook or Nook app, it ain't gonna happen .... darn!

Just rotate them rotate back...and continue reading. Does anyone know if they are working on a fix for this????

I was reading the comments in "Market" about how on a number of phones deleting the "LOG" file and allow the program to create a new file corrected the "SYNC" error.But they don't say where to find the "LOG" file??:David

But NOOK still displays "blank" pages every 5th or 6th page. There is a work around for this bug but it's still a bit bothersome.

I found that the older Nook app (2.2) works fine with the Cruz Reader UI beta 2.1.0 with full GE. I could not get the new 2.3 version of the Nook app to open books. I found the link to bunch of apps on someone's signature that I cant find now. A google search for bn.ereader_v2.2.apk will give you a couple links to download it.

I does with JackBox's [email protected] All- I think you're looking for Geebekazoo's Box.Net file depository. Also, you can try

I spoke with BN tech support and they are aware of the blank page issue. They said they will soon have a tablet specific version of Nook available and it will be listed in the Market as Nook for Tablets. Unfortunely, he didn't say when.

Also I see if you do other things to force a redraw of that page it comes back. Adjust the font, stuff like that causes a redraw and the blank page successfully redraws.

So rotating isn't the only way to get it back. Weird.

I have the latest nook app updated by the market. Didn't seem to require any nook fixes.

Seems like it would be simple enuf to fix this, I wish they would do it.
