i think for this we will need to modify kernel? or other than kernel, is there some other firmwares installed inside the device which communicate with the existing kernel? and if there exist, can those be also customized, flashed the custom firmware?
As stated above, you need to look through the forums here. Especially the DEV section. There is a 1.4.1 CM7(edit:NOT CM7, but stock rom) available in the Dev section, there is a 1.40 CM7 almost ready to go(hopefully later today) and there is a CM9 almost ready to go. You need to root first with the methods mentioned above, snowball removes all the B&N stuff and makes it fairly vanilla, then install the CWRecovery to do a backup, then install either the current 1.4.1CM7 rom available, or wait for 1 of the other 2. You would need to read and research everything else involved to get to the final rom step. But your answer is YES.
Just do some more leg work through the dev forums.
EDIT: hehe, my bad, STOCK rom, not CM7 rom currently in dev section. CM7 and CM9 on deck for release still.
