Any Devs wanna start? I don't have the experience to even know where to begin
I can probably make this work, considering it's based of CyanogenMod 10.1. Now I just need to hope repo sync works with this, because it always breaks in the middle when I try to sync with paranoid 3.
I'm not at a computer right now, but I will let you know how it goes once I can get on one.

You guys probably know this...but just in case.
I installed this on my Nexus 7 yesterday. There are no apps, just screenshots of what the apps will be when they are ready. You can supposedly still make phone calls but that won't matter here. The UI was beautiful (I thought) but that is all they have done at this point.
Just saying, it is not even close to functioning as even a media device. I actually couldn't even get wireless up, although I think that is technically supposed to work. I never used it, but I would expect the NookBuntu to be way more functional at this point.
Not to rain on anyone's parade, porting new OS is a great way to learn new things, no matter your skill level. But don't expect much return on your investment at this point.
(Also, just because, make sure that there is a kernel and ramdisk and uboot and not a boot.img in whatever you build. The device tree should take care of that for you, but it didn't on AOSP for me, and I suffered as a result.)
I worked on building the phablet for the nook. I stopped because all reports were it works very badly with only 500 mb ram. Hashcode has ported it to the kindle fire and found he could only open a couple apps before it froze up. However, he did good work on porting and put the changes on github at https://github.com/KFire-Android . You can look for phablet branches on the otter branches. The kernel changes are also present in some of his repos. Look around those repos for good hints on getting started.The kindle fire is also an omap processor, albeit omap4, so it is close to ours. The changes should be similar.
