Honeycomb can now be installed to the Nook Color's internal memory

Have a Nook Color and wonder how much better Honeycomb would run if it didn't have to be run off of an SD card?  You're in luck, because we have the instructions for installing it to your Nook's internal memory (emmc), which might run faster and smoother than an SD card (though running it with an overclock kernel on a Class 10 SD is very fast--and much less dangerous).

This is advanced command line stuff, and this is still a developmental port, so please look everything over and only proceed if you're feeling adventurous, and are comfortable with the instructions and with the risk involved: How to Install Honeycomb to Nook Color's Internal Memory

  • Nice. Do these guys ever sleep? Lol. I'm not complaining though.
  • A word of warning for everyone out there rooting and is possible to brick one if these things. I did it just last night. So bricked the thing literally wouldn't turn on. No backlight, no splash screen - no nothing. Be careful out there folks.
  • I'm sure you're aware of this, but I had the same thing happen 2 days ago when I was adjusting settings in a honeycomb port. I thought it was bricked, but it actually was turned on but had gone to a black screen. I thought I had ben restarting the NC, but after googling, I read that sometimes it takes a full 20 SECONDS of holding the power button down to actually turn it off. After that when I hit power it turned back on as normal. Not sure if this is the situation you are having... but just thought I would throw it out their in case you were not aware and it might help save some greif. =)
  • I thought I "bricked" my Nook about three days ago, same thing, wouldn't turn on at all, no back light, and all that. I thought it was dead in the water. Then I learned it's almost nearly impossible to brick these things. Do what the dude suggested above me, hold the power button down for as long as possible (few minutes maybe) and it'll come back on. After that I had to "unroot" (hold down power and the N button) and restore the factory defaults (8 failed boot trick), then everything worked fine. Then of course I tried rooting again, and worked out fine. Also some advice, if you rooted on 1.0.0, don't do it again. Upgrade to 1.0.1 then root, life will be much easier.
  • Now that I read down a bit, I see you figured it out. Congrats and happy rooting! :)
  • JuneBeatle80 is absolutely right. With the new Honeycomb, mine will occasionally go to 'sleep' and no amount of short button pushing, or combinations, will do anything. The only way to get it going again is to hold the power button down for a long while (20 seconds sounds about right), let up, and then turn it back on with a regular long push. I've done some pretty strange things trying to get past a startup password screen (which I haven't been able to do yet) and gotten some strange reactions (Chinese keyboard, anyone?), but I haven't bricked it yet! Not sure it's possible... Although, I suppose there must be some way. ;)
  • To Autoexec.bat your device is not bricked its got screwed up boot and system partitions if you were to go to this website and follow instructions for installing froyo to your Nook it would be back up and running in to time I had the misfortune of doing the exact same thing as you I would press the power and nothing would happen no boot no screen no nothing this fixed it for me and I am on FROYO which is good not great but good LOL oh and hopefully you follow instructions on the page I believe someone gives more easier instructions on the second page also don't under any circumstance format your SD card on the NOOK be warned!!! or you will have to do it all over again format the sd card on a ANDROID PHONE then you will be able to use it on your nook. good luck and god bless
  • It's ALLLLLLLLLLIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIVVVVVVVVVVVVEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE! The above XDA thread worked like a charm! Had to do everything listed there, THEN hold down for 20 seconds. Thanks, Dizzyable (and everyone else for trying to help)! Now to call B&N and cancel that RMA...
  • The beauty of the NC, it's virtually unbrickable!
  • Try miui rom cm7 based. Easy and everything works.
