I recently installed CyanogenMod 7(update-cm-7.0.3-encore-signed.zip) on my Nook Color with the hope that I might be able to run the same apps that I am able to run on my HTC Inspire 4G smart phone.  At the same time, I installed Google apps (gapps-gb-20110613-signed.zip) on my Nook Color.  According to the information I was able to get from my Nook Color and my HTC phone, both are running Android ver 2.3.3.  However, many of the apps that I was able to download and run, with no difficulty on my HTC phone, can not be downloaded to my Nook Color.  The message,  "Your device is not compatible with this item", is displayed when I attempt to download to my Nook Color.  This has happened for apps such as, Amazon Kindle, Amazon App Store, Battery Dr, WiFi Analyzer, Convert Pad, Pageonce Money and Bills, BOA mobile banking, USAA mobile and others.  I have been able to successfully download some apps with no problem. However, in some cases, an app may start to download, and then display the message, "Package File is invalid".   Under Content Filtering, for Market, I have no restrictions.  At this point I am frustrated as what I must do to be able to download the apps that I would like.  Is what I am experiencing what I should expect, or is there something else that I need to do to make the downloading of all apps possible?

Search around a bit. It's a common problem, and there are many posts on how to deal with it. It seems to be less of an issue with recent nightly builds, if you're willing to give one a try.

A common issue... with numerous solutions floating around. I'd recommend that you
  • install a recent nightly build >= #200
  • use gapps-gb-20110828-signed.zip
Enjoy! For details, please read the forum. Thanks.

Thanks bobstro and inportb for the suggestions.  Based on a thread I read earlier, I had downloaded and installed gapps-gb-20110828-signed.zip.  I got the same results.  To install a nightly build I assume that I download the zip file and then install it via Clockwork Recovery.  Is this correct?

If you are running CM7 off an SD card, download a recent nightly (200 or above) and place it in the boot partition of the card. It will install when you reboot. If running CM7 off the eMMC, save yourself the effort and install ROM Manager and then use it to download and install nightlies. You will need a non bootable SD card inserted to use ROM Manager.

I  installed the nightly   cm-encore-full-201.zip, and along with  gapps-gb-20110828-signed.zip, I was able to get all apps that I needed to download from Market.  As a bonus, I also noticed that a problem I had been having with powering off the NC was also corrected.  In the past when I pressed Power Off, within a few seconds it would appear to lock up.  To complete the power off it would be necessary to hold the power button for about an additional five seconds, until the screen went dark.  Now when I press Power Off, within a few seconds the NC color actually powers off, and the screen goes dark.

Thanks to this forum for all of the help  My Nook Color is now working like a small android tablet, the way I had hoped it would.

Sorry, in advance, for the simplicity of this question:  I can't download the nook color app so I can downlaod my books, etc.  I presume that this solution will fix this and any other app issues?  where do I find ROM Manager and can you point me in the direction of how to use?  Thanks.

Yes, no luck.  Anyone know why Youtube won't work?  Opens but won't play videos.  Is there a fix?  Thanks.

That is the only fix I have seen so far. Let's hope for an app upgrade.....

I am still unable to install many apps (google maps, nook app, and more) with the latest experimental, nightly 177, nightly 211, and gapps-gb-20110828.  Does anyone have any ideas?

Hi, I couldn't Install google maps, the reason was: "is not available in your country", I've installed MarketEnabler app which fixed my problem. perhaps It might help you.

Tried all the above and also went into settings/applications/market/ and cleared the cache. Still no luck: Kindle, Nook, Youtube all show "not compatible with your device"  -- other apps will install, but not the ones I want. Any suggestions?

Check thread here on that. http://forum.cyanoge...kage-available/

Update your .gapps file to the latest and update cyangenmod to the latest stable to get your nook up to date and compatible with all apps on the android market.

Thank you.  I think I've done all that, but, since I am very new at all this, I may have made an error in updating. (my grandson did the rooting for me and mailed the nook color back to me). I downloaded both the files you described (the mod is cm_encore_full-227,  both files are zip files) and copied them to the root directory of my micro sd card, then inserted the card in the nook and started it.  Once the files loaded and I had the screen with the list of actions, with "reboot" at the top of the list highlighted, I removed the card and rebooted the nook.  I also went into settings/market and cleared the cache.  Perhaps this was not the correct procedure? Please excuse my lack of experience, and I appreciate your expert advice. Thanks again.
