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-http://www.softpedia.com/get/CD-DVD-Tools/Data-CD-DVD-Burning/Win32-Disk-Imager.shtml

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-http://www.rbrune.de/nookhoney04.img.zip

Step 2: Putting the file on your SD card

Now, open win32 disk imager. you will then see a window pop up on your screen. Click on the file folder and select the disk image. then, click write. When that completes, power down your nook color and put the SD card in your NOOK. Then, power it up, and you should see the android operating system.

Doesn't work for Nook HD. Bummer. Wanna give me instructions for clearing that off my SD card?

Do you know how to do this to a nook hd?

It should work the same for any nook

Next question... I have a micro SD card that (in desperation, when I needed an sd card and didn't have one) I used in my canon camera. Would I need to format or re-format the mini sd card before doing this?

Yes, you would have to reformat the micro SD card before loading the root files, and the micro SD card can be much smaller than 16 GB - I would say a 4 GB micro SD card would be fine.

AND does it have to be a 16 g? Can it be smaller, or are the root files THAT BIG?

Thank you!!

my nook color does not have a sd car slot that i can see can you please help

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.
