Heck, only 0.7% of devices connecting to the play store are 2.2 so 2.1 is probably an even smaller percentage. Developers don't want to spend a lot of time to support a crappy old version of Android with virtually no market share.

The real issue is why B&N sticks with this old Android version - its a lot of work to upgrade and the Nook isn't making them enough money to fund the work.

Seems legit.

Guess it's good that I chose not to use NTGAppsAttack back when I rooted my Nook.

Sure is a shame that nobody's gotten a newer Android version working yet. Looks like Nook Touch devices are really dying out in demand and interest.
