How to turn your NOOK color into an android tablet

Step 1: Downloading necessary files

First, you will have to download 2 things, the first thing is an application called win32 disk imager. I will provide a link here-

The second thing you need to download is the bootable disk image of android honeycomb
I did a google search on the image and found this website-

Step 2: Putting the file on your SD card

Sorry for such a late response. Turn your nook color over and look in the bottom right corner. There you should see a small tab that can flip out. pull that tab and under that you should see the sd card slot.
