Nook Color Slow, Choppy, and Clunky

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
My sister-in-law got a nook color for Christmas. She is only 12 so she is wanting to do stuff like youtube and angry birds on it, but compared to my iPhone or iPad, this device is super clunky, choppy, skippy (etc)

Im not sure if this is because the hardware really isn't all that compared to the iOS devices, but there must be an update, over clock, something that will make this more useable. She does not even want to use it because its slow compared to my Mother-in-Laws iPad 2 she was using previous to getting her own nook.

Any help? Thanks all.

You can google for instructions on how to overclock the Nook Color.

I installed Cyanogen Mod 7.1 on a Nook Color and gave it to my nephew for Xmas. I had it overclocked to 1.2 ghz and it's performance was decent for the most part although still not as smooth as an iPad2. I doubt you would want to do the complete modification but I do remember seeing instructions for just installing a overclocking kernel without modifying the rest of the B&N functionality.

Install cm7.2 kang with the ram manager thing (you'll see it on the rom release page.) And overclock somewhere between 1.1 and 1.2 ghz. Anything lower and it will be laggy, anything higher andGPU PERFORMANCE BEGINS TO DEGRADE I'm running this exact rom at 1.2ghz and the youtube app works great, as well as flash player on the website is smooth up to 480p. I hope this helps! Do what I say and you can't go wrong.

the nook store, no but you have no reason to if you use the android market. there is a nook app on the market for books.

if you stick with the stock rom but just want to root then yes.

Did this with mine without the CPU overclock(YET!) and its amazing. It can get "Slow, Choppy, and Clunky" if you don't kill the apps after use. But its like that with every phone/tablet running android software that I've used.

(BTW I use an Iphone 3gs and have decided to go with an android phone strictly off of what CM7 has showed me that they can do!)
