Question [Q] Upgrading Antique Version of Droid

I have a Nook HD 7". Although it's brand-new, it's running Droid v2.2.0. I'd like to upgrade it to something a lot more current. However, I'm not a technical IT person, though I am a 30-year user of IT, PCs, etc. In fact, I make my living on a computer. I don't know if the folks who man the 'Nook Section' at a B&N Store help people like me, but would I be better offf asking the Nook person there to help me upgrade to Droid v4.X vs. trying to wade through some highly technical--but I'm sure point-on--directions from this Forum?

Thanks very much.

Go to the dummies guide linked in my signature. And it is Android, not Droid.

Thank you. I read that before I made my initial post. Here is what I propose: if you will e-mail me off-line (wmiller@beckmill.com), I'd like to set up a time to talk briefly w/you by telephone. I will then commit to pay you to help me do what I read before I posted. Is that acceptable?

No, I am not interested in that. If you need specific help with an item in the thread, I will try to help.

Maybe someone else is interested.

Edit: And stock B&N software is not antique Droid 2.2.0 (Droid is a model of phone by Motorola). It is Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich). It has been heavily modified by B&N and given their version number 2.2.0.The latest version of Android is an experimental Android 4.4 (KitKat).

Your point about Droid vs. Android is well-taken. I apologize. Good to know about KitKat. Thank you for that.

FWIW, I have seen Nook models on the web that claim to be running Android v4.X. That is what led me to the CM site first. I followed the instruction there to the letter and downloaded the requisite file--OneClick.apk. However, when I tried to install it, the Nook gave me this message: "This Nook cannot read this file. It may be an unsupported format." That's when I came here.

So now I'm scratching my head. I need expert help and am willing and able to pay for it. If anyone is interested in helping me, please either post your contact information or e-mail me directly at: wmiller@beckmill.com. - Warren Miller, CPA - Lexington, Virginia.

I don't know what that oneclick.apk is, but it has nothing to do with installing CM on a Nook HD/HD+. Follow the dummies guide I referenced earlier.

EDIT: If you can't or don't want to put the effort into updating the device yourself, you can go to a commercial site like N2Acards.com and they will sell you a ready made SD with Android for Nook already set up for you.

If you still need help, send me a PM with your number. I am willing to take you step by step for slight compensation of my time.
