My Nook Color finally came in yesterday. It’s only been 12 or so hours but I’m already smitten. This thing is a hackers dream toy! It automatically tries to boot off of your SD card if it’s inserted, if not it defaults to the internal 8GB memory.
Thanks to the efforts of many people who seem to hang out in the XDA developer forums, I’ve got Honeycomb Preview V4 (Android 3.0) on my internal memory and Cyanogenmod 7 (Android 2.3.3 Gingerbread) on an external SD card – switching between OSes is as simple as rebooting.
I’m so eager to dive into the Android Source and start compiling my own custom-built versions of Android.
