Barnes & Noble Issues Firmware Upgrade for NOOKcolor


Barnes & Noble has just released the first firmware upgrade for their NOOKcolor, one of the hottest holiday items this past season. It brings the firmware version up to 1.1.0 and is said to improve performance, fix a host of bugs, adds pinch to zoom in the browser, and more. Those who wish to apply it now can do so by visiting B&N’s site, but if you’re the lazy type, the upgrade will be pushed to you OTA within the next few days. [Thanks, Ty!]

NOOKcolor Ver1.1.0 update contains enhancements to improve the overall performance, including:

  • Improved performance of Wi-Fi connectivity, Home and Shop.
  • Ability to pinch and zoom in browser.
  • Enhanced reading experience for magazines and children’s books.
  • Access helpful NOOKcolor related information and support tips on the new default browser home page.
  • Reduce mistyped passwords with “show password” option during registration and Wi-Fi set up.
  • Easily identify NOOK kids Read To Me™ books with a new text banner next to the titles in Shop.
  • General bug fixes and performance improvements.

  3. It breaks root from what I gather. I will wait until a new autonooter is made I guess.

    Looks to be a good update in itself though. Thanks for posting.

  4. I am open to a little Nookie…

  5. Is Flash included in this upgrade? It’s not mentioned in the list of upgrades. I was really hoping for Flash player capabiliy.

  6. Thank you very much! Here is my 2 cents, I just printed Coupons for free. You can print coupons before you shop by searching “Printapons” online

  7. They can’t have Flash till 2.2.
