Quadruple Boot into Nook OS, CM7, 9, and 10 on Nook Tablet

Booting into multiple versions of Android have become kind of quite common around these parts. There are many devices that can dual boot. Usually it’s in the form of an OEM-skinned ROM and a AOSP-based ROM, which users choose to flash. Recently however, developers have been pushing a little further than that. The HTC HD2 received triple boot, where it could boot not only into three different ROMs, but those were actually different operating systems. Now, the Barnes & Noble Nook Tablet can quad-booting.

XDA Forum Member malloneem wrote a tutorial that allows users to flash up to three ROMs on a SD card, while leaving the stock Nook software on the tablet’s storage. That’s four total bootable ROMs. As malloneem explains:

This is a guide to use with Windows to create a 3-Boot SD card for a nook Tablet 8GB or 16 GB. After you are done you will be able to choose to boot into your regular nook OS or choose between CM7, CM9 or CM 10.

As stated by the developer, this can only be accomplished through Windows at the moment. Users will be run through the partition process in such a manner that three ROMs can run from it. That is really the majority of the tutorial. Then it’s a matter from grabbing ROMs from the various ROM developers and installing them all. It’s a long and tedious process, though, so make sure to have an afternoon to dedicate.

To see the whole tutorial, check out the original thread.

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...
