Introducing MROM-encore. Custom ROM for the B&N NOOK Color

Free Yourself and Feel the Difference

This is my attempt to build a stable, complete, and fully functional custom ROM for the B&N NOOK Color completely built from source code; MROM-encore is built on top of Cyanogen ROM latest source code. I recompiled all components to guarantee maximum efficiency and performance. Along the way, I realized that I needed things to work different for the B&N NOOK Color, so I also made some changes. If you like my work, consider a donation to my cause.

MROM-encore is entirely build from source. You will see the difference when you run it. Just to list a few features:
  • Entire ROM and Kernel are compiled and optimized with Linaro toolchain 4.7
  • Superior Performance. (User benchmarks have reported excellent performance)
  • Excellent battery life
  • Multi-User Enabled
  • Contains all the most common tweaks
  • QuickPic gallery application


While I tried to maintain the main core small, size is not the main focus.

Before posting negative comments about the ROM. Browse the thread and the FAQ. http://www.montuori.net/android-mrom/mrom-faq-2/

The first comment I get is negative and shuts me down... It's fine, if you think that way, however, this particular ROM has been very successful for both the Atrix and the HTC Incredible 2. Before you slam down something, you should try it first...

It's nice to know that there are still people developing custom
ROMs for the NC. I'd try it out.

I go for stability, when cm9/10 kernel and drivers are release, I will do a release...

While it may be stable, it still has never felt as fast to me as the cm7 builds have ( even the hw acc builds) .

Anyway, thanks op, will be trying it in the morning!

Did You Try This Running From SD Card
If it's renamed to fit the convention used in Verygreen's installer?

Answering my own question - YES!!!! And this ROM is unbelievingly fast. I usually run the kanged version of CM7.2 but I am totally amazed by the smoothness and speed of this ROM as compared to CM7.2. I will post further observations when I get home from work.

Well Done!

Looks like I'll have to try this one out when I get home. One thing though, your warning is not applicable to us because we don't have a phone.
