Run Android Honeycomb on the Nook Color

Posted by techhackz-admin Thursday, February 3, 2011


The Nook Color continues to amaze us, not only can it be converted into a full fledged Android tablet but it can now also run Honeycomb (Android 3.0). So if you want to get some Honeycomb taste even before the Motorola XOOM gets released this might be your chance!
Android 3.0 or Honeycomb is the first Android release designed with tablets in mind, so it is nice to see it already running on the Nook Color. We have to thank deeper-blue @ XDA for this port!
You can see the Nook Color running Honeycomb in this YouTube video:
You can also see below what works or not in this Honeycomb port for the Nook Color:

What works:
-Graphics acceleration

Doesn't work:
-Sound (sadly! Despite my efforts the last hours I didn't get it working properly yet)
-DSP e.g. no hardware video decoding
