CM9 / Ice Cream Sandwich For Nook Color [Download]


imageNook Color Gets ICS! Seems like progress has been made in bringing the ICS based CM9 ROM to the Nook Color and we’re actually looking at at a ROM that now has quite a lot of things working in it thanks to the efforts of XDA-Developers forum member dalingrin and fattire . However, the ROM is still a work in progress and not fit for use as a daily driver. More so, novice users should not even try being adventurous with this ROM to try and install it.

Here’s what the developers have gotten working so far:

  • Bluetooth.
  • Wi-Fi (full it seems but it’s brand-new to the kernel so who knows how stable anything is).
  • Backlight.
  • Accelerometer.
  • improved stability (but not perfect)
  • Google Apps.
  • SetCPU / overclock.
  • Real data usage info (not stubbed out).
  • Battery levels / charging.
  • Physical menu button.
  • Touchscreen.
  • 3D games.
  • USB gadget in kernel (i.e, mounting your SD card to your computer).
  • Screenshots.
  • Build system (to auto-create upgrade.zips).

Sound, video, full 2D acceleration and possibly much more is not working right now. Again, the ROM is a work in a progress and not meant for playing around by novice users.

No detailed instructions on the installation will be provided as advanced users will already be fluent with flashing a zip file via recovery on the Nook Color. Yes, this ROM can be installed by flaashing it via a custom recovery.
