How To Change Your NookColor Boot Animation
There are many mods for mobile phone boot animations, and now XDA forum member Mistar Muffin has posted a tutorial to help Nook Color owners change the boot animations on their devices.

For full instructions and to download the zip file, head on over to the forum thread.
