Although most of you who know about the Great work the CyanogenMod team does, you may have been forgiven if you thought that Jellybean/CM10 hitting various devices was in the slow lane.
Well the latest news is that the team have been working hard on a CM10 alpha version for the Nook Colour.
The project was a long time in the making, with contributions from a whole host of people. Check out the development thread (link below) for a full list of those involved. The build was posted by XDA Recognized Developer fattire (profile page). Now that all the technical hurdles have been overcome, the end result is an officially CM-supported build that is really quite functional despite its alpha status.
There are bugs, but nothing that makes this build unusable for everyday activity, unless you have some fairly specific needs:
- YouTube is only viewable in standard definition.
- The home button does not currently wake the device.
- Netflix doesn’t work.
- No OpenGL.
- Charging isn’t detected unless the device is awake at the time of being plugged in.
So if you would like to give your Nook Colour a new lease of life with the latest version of Android, go to the following XDA post .
