Nook Tablet Users Now Have More Power For the SD Card

The SD card on the Barnes & Noble Nook Tablet is more important than it is on most other devices. From the SD card, you can boot Android, unbrick your Nook Tablet, and perform a number of other impressive things. XDA Forum Member meghd00t has released a method that will not only help unfortunate users unbrick their devices using the SD card, but has also added some functionality that provides a 12GB media partition to use for things like music and video.

The steps aren’t too difficult and the process itself shouldn’t take too long, but users who go this route should definitely be sure to read the full instructions to make sure nothing gets messed up. The defining feature of the method is that it does not require ADB in order to unbrick the Nook Tablet. In the words of the developer:

simple no adb required
follows B&N partition table properly
keeps the Nook serial and other Information
small size (actually the only new file here is only 5MB)
should work will all 8GB & 16GB tablets

Of course, as always, there are some negatives to the process, including:

inflexible about the 1.4.2 upgrade (otherwise no 8GB support)
you will get my chosen 12GB media partition, but I have given you all the tools to make your own

If those things don’t bother you, though, head on over to the modification thread for additional information, the full method, and a full explanation of what the process does.

When the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge were launched, they became the prime focus for all discussions as Samsung took a break on their traditional design philosophy and opted for something that their flagship lineup hadn't seen before. But along with the design, a lot of Android enthusiasts were also impressed by another aspect of the flagship duo: their camera. Even traditionally, the primary camera on Samsung's flagship lineup has been one of its stronger points as compared to other...

Tactile: An Addicting Game with Beautiful Material Design

The game industry has been around for decades, catering to a wide spectrum of people, young gamers and elder ones, casual gamers and serious ones, and for an industry with such specifications, innovation isn't the only fuel for success. An increasingly large number of games draw inspiration from another and build on top of that idea, and Tactile is one such product, an excellently executed brainchild of a mashup between Tetris and 2048. For 2048 veterans, the game will come across as relatively familiar....

Android’s Consistency and The User Experience

This is a site of power users, and it is fair to say that most of us are more knowledgeable about Android than the average Joe. We tinker and tweak by customizing every corner for endless hours, until we arrive at a comfortable software configuration. In contrast, a large chunk of Android users don’t even use a different launcher - and many don’t know what a launcher is in the first place!   When we get so involved in our...
