Create a Gingerbread/Ice Cream Sandwich Dual Boot SD Card for the Nook Color
Every time we publish a story about the mods and developments on the Nook Color, it makes me seriously wonder if the Barnes and Noble people knew what was possible with the little ebook reader they were selling.
XDA Senior Member racks11479 has updated his multi-boot images for the Barnes and Noble Nook Color to include an SD image with both Gingerbread and Ice Cream Sandwich. Since the ICS build is semi-unstable and he still needed access to Gingerbread, racks11479 created this dual boot image for use on an SD card rather than the internal eMMC.
Following the SD versions release he put together a flashable version for the adventurous. Building the SD card requires the use of a partition manager and an image burner, but that’s a small price to pay to protect your devices precious eMMC.

Once again, we have arrived on the most magical of holidays - the annual unveiling of HalfLife 3, and day on which co-workers believe it is appropriate to duct tape air horns behind doors. I speak, of course, about April Fools Day. As has become their custom, Google launched lighthearted "pranks" for each of their various services (with other tech sites and vendors following suit), and we have done our best to round up the humorous products and tweaks surfacing thus far....
