Recently I purchased a Color Nook, and as soon as I got it I had to get Honeycomb on it. I loved it so much that I had to get the word out. Getting the nook to run honeycomb is a fairly easy task, but I thought that a lot of the webpages i visited to get the process done where scattered. I would like to write my own how to to help with the confusion.
what you will need
- micro sd card at least 4 gb or better. Also I think the card must also be a class 4 or better.
- on XDA developer’s site download the most recent nookHoney build, also download WinImage.
Insert your Sd card into your computer, and run winImage as administrator.
Click Disk and Select Restore Virtual Hard Disk image on physical drive..
Select your sd card from the list.
Once you have selected your sd card, winImage is going to ask you which file you would like to write to the card. Selected where you have saved the nookHoney.img file. Go to the folder to which the file is saved and select it. If you do not see your file listed make sure that you have the the all files option selected like below.
You are almost done:D, WinImage is now writing the file to your sd card. Once it has finished eject your sd card, power down the color nook and insert the card into the nook. Power on the Color nook and..
This weekend I was blessed to take a trip to fry’s. I aquired a 16gb class 10 sd card that I wanted to use to put Honeycomb. I wanted to add on here that its a lot of trouble to use the nookhoneyV04 with the class 10 cards. You will boot your device and for some reason honeycomb will ask you for a password to decrypt your data. There was a little fix that I noticed on xda website that you copy from the sd card the uImage and delete the file in the card. Then copy the uImage from the desktop to the sd card. This may or may not fix this issue. You will need to use the nookhoneyV03 if you plan on using a high class card. I was so frustrated with the bugs that I removed honeycomb.I’m now rocking CM7-RC2 on my sd card. I will post a how to on that soon its so fast and bugs are minimum.
