1. If I want to keep my stock Nook GUI and I root it and install the Market and ADW or LP etc, will I loose my Nook's original interface or can I call it up? I might want to keep it to read magazines and for the children's books features.
2. Can I OC a stock noot (rooted)?
3. Can I have 1 and 2 and then create a bootable SD with Honeycomb? Would I be able to use the market there without confusing it with the installed apps in the stock . I mean , can I have apps installed on the internal SD and some of the same apps in the external SD for when I use HC.
1.- Yes, at least on OS version 1.1. This is how I have mine. Devs are still working on the OS 1.2 roots, but I see no reason why it won't work like that also when all is said and done.
2.- Not sure about this. I believe you need to install a new kernel, but I don't know if you can run the Nook's stock OS on top of an overclockable kernel. Also, I'm pretty new to the android scene, so I'm not sure what I've just said even makes sense.
3.- You can run a different OS off an SD card and keep the Nook Color itself stock. Honeycomb is not really ready for prime time, though, from what I've read.
