I woke up to a surprise this morning on my Nook Color. I had a little green ‘n’ showing up in my alerts pop-up window. Heh? Why had I not heard anything about this update? Perhaps, because even B&N didn’t have much to say about the latest software update, billed as version 1.4.2:
Under the ‘What’s New’ heading: “The NOOK Color Ver1.4.2 update provides minor system enhancements.”
With a little digging and Googling, I found that the e-mail application received and update and B&N has made it harder to root most of the Nook tablets (something I attempted back last summer, but decided it wasn’t worth the grief and headaches). I like my Nook Color just the way it is. Perhaps I’ll be more adventurous when my two-year extended warranty expires.
I haven’t used my Nook much today, except to read during lunch, so I can’t confirm any other glitches or fixes. The e-mail application does seem to respond quicker and not get hung up on the sync cycle now. If I find anything else this evening, I will return and post an update.
For my thoughts on the previous update, released last December, visit my blog post and review for version 1.4.1.
