    Default Nook 1st Edition Update 1.7

    I guess B&N has made an update to their update 1.6: version 1.7. I did a manual update, and all seems to work well so far. I don't have a memory card in my Nook, so I can only guess that this update was to fix the memory card problems caused by version 1.6.

    I'll keep mine in airplane mode for a couple days. I like to have others test the updates before I load them!

    ...Yeah. Having learned the hard way, I'm not so interested in rushing to get this update on my nook, especially since they're still not telling us what exactly it does. I just got everything reshelved and sideloaded my BN content this week after undoing 1.6. I'll just wait and see.

    My nook is always in airplane mode, so I had no idea there was an update. But since there is nothing exciting to report, I will wait it out.

    Having reviewed the posts about the 1.6 update, I emailed Nook Tech Support to find out what the 1.7 update would do. Here is the response I received:

    Thank you for writing to us.

    We would like to inform you that 1.7 software update can fix minor glitches in your NOOK 1st Edition including the micro SD card glitch.

    Here is the link to check for further information about the 1.7 software update:

    Visit our NOOK Support site for the latest updates and downloads at:

    The link he provided is just the link from the main site and tells nothing, but it seems like 1.7 is a fix to the 1.6 "update and fix."

    Just updated mine to 1.7 from the 1.5 that I was currently using. (Mine never auto updated to 1.6) So exactly what enhancements were we supposed to be getting in the 1.6 version? I know from reading on here that there were lots of SD card problems after 1.6 install, but I never really got what they were initially trying to accomplish with the 1.6 update before all the problems hit the fan.

    Sorry about being so clueless here, but can someone get me up to speed?

    Thanks.

    We're all clueless. BN has refused (been silent) to divulge what the update does.

    Wow. That seems a little pointless on BN's part. I thought I just missed what they were trying to accomplish.

    Thanks, anyway, for the clue-in.

    Bah, I'm not pulling it until they say what 1.6 and 1.7 are doing. For all we know it's a time bomb that will take our classics out in six months.
    Not really but I like to have tin foil moments every so often.

    Or they're trolling for all unauthorized Harry Potter ebooks.
    Good excuse to backup your personal library.
    peace out...
