I would like to turn my Nook into a simple android tablet for web surfing etc and have tried to find any coherent install instructions with download links that still work but so far failed. Given how old the Nook hardware is I do not want to spend money on any ready made image.

I do not care so much what flavor of ROM to use as long as Web browser, Youtube and the Android marketplace works so I can install some basic apps.

Anybody that can point me to a good guide?

Same boat here.
Found out factory reset. Power on, let go and (almost?) immediately hold power and "n" for about 6 seconds like I had read elsewhere.
I end up letting them go before the "read anywhere" text disappears.

All CyanogenMod seems to be down, in favor of LineageOS?
Not sure if I need ClockworkModRecovery (CWMR) depending on which OS I want.
I see Froyo mentioned a lot, but not sure if those sources are old as well.
That being the android version 2.2 that matches what the Barnes & Noble OS is built on top of.

Found a good guide, old or not, that goes through those and ideas. I'll probably stick to SD card installation when possible and not the eMMC route.

Can't seem to find the download off their site which lists devices, but can find the names here: https://stats.lineageos.org/model/encore

Found one here: https://androidfilehost.com/?fid=745425885120722662
Not the latest version is seems: lineage-14.1-0407_1436-DrM-encore-udb.zip
with this being the latest I have found: 14.1-0705_1045-DrM-encore-udb
https://androidfilehost.com/?fid=673368273298947780: lineage-14.1-0414_1953-DrM-encore-udb.zip

CM-13.0 Work-In-Progress
Has some installation info.

Also possibly useful 1 year old thread: https://www.reddit.com/r/cyanogenmod...anogenmod_710/

It seems to get anything started we need adb access to install CWMR in order to install other OSes, and for that, one would need the Windows drivers for the Nook Color: https://forum.xda-developers.com/sho...d.php?t=882751

So I am out of luck for Macs. adb root responds "Error: no devices found".

After a successful adb, some commands: https://forum.xda-developers.com/sho....php?t=1078855

If I get that working, I would continue with the Rec images form the instructions in the CM13 thread, and somehow with LineageOS files. The CyanogenMod (CM) file seems easier to picture without having completed the process yet, as that is simply an image file to write directly to the SD card.
I guess LineageOS would install from zip which I'm guessing is what I need CWMR



A nice vanilla ASOP / Android install might be recommended as well, as that seems to already be ready into a format for burning directly to the SD card, and for the Nook Color to boot off of without any internal modifications or previous PC preparations: https://www.lifewire.com/turn-nook-c...tablet-2740672

I found a YouTube video today that included all three links that seemed to be dead everywhere you go in order to put CyanogenMod on nook color. I followed the directions downloaded the links and what do you know? I now have a nook color Android. [email protected] drop me an email if you want me to find out what the YouTube video was and share the link with you

Why not just post a link here. I've been trying to find everything needed.

I would really like any information on this as well. I have an early ROM on my Nook Color already, but I think it's an eMMC.

What I used, back in 2016...
I've got a NookColor and had successfully rooted the NookColor (Encore) with CM. I haven't really touched it since then, but I wanted to see if I could use it for anything else, or get a small OS on it to use it as a Calendar, Weather and such, or see about using the screen with a Raspberry PI 3b or a MiSTer and such for any other projects.

Here's a link to what I used, I don't remember the process (If I can find the links, I'll post them). However, here are files I have and used.

:: UPDATE ::
Found the link I used.

Heres a link to the encore cyanogenmod page on web archives.
https://web.archive.org/web/20161224...?device=encore

and acclaim if you have a nook tablet
https://web.archive.org/web/20161224...device=acclaim

BUT! i would not suggest flashing gapps as it basically makes it unusably slow, use apkpure or micro g. i would also suggest enabling stage fright video in the build.prop, less battery drain on youtube/youtube vanced.
