How To Hack The Nook Color



Take a Nook Color from Barnes & Nobel and turn it into a super-tablet with some pretty amazing features.

    Sweet!! Where’d u get the Bluetooth keyboard? Or should I ask…what brand/model is it? Looks nice and would fit very well with my home theater pc. I’ve looked for a good while and have not found one that looks like that.

    I don’t see a toolbar at the bottom like you have. 🙁 Without it, I can’t seem to get into the android store. I’m using the 7.1 stable version of Cyanogen. Did I do something wrong?

    I had the same problem as Loren. I had no toolbar at the bottom and every time I tried to run MARKET, it gave me an error “the process has stopped”. I was able to fix this both issues.

    Use the following steps:
    1. Go to ROM MANAGER > Reboot into Recovery
    2. Do a Factory Reset
    3. Wipe your Davlic Cache
    4. Run the installation process above in the video.
    5. You should be good to go and everything should be working perfectly.

    Good luck!

    If I had a Nook Color, this would be the kind of things I’d do with it.

      never mind, just a malfunction on my end….but I cannot get on the android market, possibly because of the changeover to the new google play?

      Hi had the same problem
      all that worked was letting the batt run down totally, and then charge again then I re-installed CM7 and google app

      hope it helps

    i understand why you would want to turn this thing into a tablet, but how do you switch it back to the nook color?
    also, can you make a windows 8 tablet out of this thing? (im talking about this tinkernut video).

    Can a person still perform this hack on newer Nook colors, accounting for Google play, and weather the software in the links is useable?
