How I’ve bought the Barnes & Noble’s Nook Tablet


Finally! Yesterday I’ve received my shining new B&N Nook Tablet, still with aroma of fresh plastic and artificial leather (from the cover). Mmm, yammy ­čÖé

It cost me 10 000 RUR (which was ~280 USD + some taxes) and was brought here (to Moscow) by my fellow friend directly from NY Manhattan store.

I’ll post┬ásome photos of the tablet inside the cover soon and plan to┬ároot the device and get a normal Android installed there, so follow the posts here.

What if Android Market updates doesn’t work for apps installed on SD card

The problem: under Android OS applications installed to SD card using Android Market cannot be updated, showing error message.

The solution (found here, thanks to cdore…@gmail.com):

  1. Connect your device to PC.
  2. On your device select Mount or External drive option.
  3. Open your device as a drive in My Computer.
  4. Find folder “.android.secure” or “/mnt/secure/asec/”
  5. Delete file “smdl2tmp1.asec” (L before the 2nd letter and letter 1 after “tmp”).
  6. Try to re-download updates via Android Market.
Hope that helps!
