Honeycomb on Nook Color

There is a custom build of Android 3.0 (Honeycomb) available for the Nook Color.  This particular build is designed to run from a MicroSD card (opposed to some of the Froyo eMMC versions which reflash the internal memory), albiet I am not 100% if it requires the Nook Color to be rooted...

On a MacOS system, download the image and do the following:

  • Open a terminal window
  • Insert a MicroSD card into the Mac
  • Use “diskutil list” to determine the disk# of the MicroSD
  • "diskutil unmountDisk /dev/disk#" to dismount the MicroSD
    Respons should be "Unmount of all volumes on disk was successful"
  • dd if=nookhoney04.img of=/dev/rdisk# bs=1m
    Note: be VERY careful you have the correct disk- otherwise your Mac might be running Android on next boot!
  • Wait
The disk image will take several minutes- depending on the write speed of your MicroSD.  

Once complete, shutdown your nook, insert the card and you should see the Android boot lolo on power-up.
