  • Now go online and look up "Go Launcher free download" and find a good site. Or you can look for ADW Launcher which is for more advanced users.
  • Make sure when you open it on the Nook to press "Package Installer".
  • If you press "App Installer" then you will need to re-download the launcher.

  • Now just search your Nook for it and when you find it, press it and it will open and, PRESTO!! your Nook has (limited) Android capabilities!
  • When you want to download an app you must go to the online Android market.
  • Don't keep your wireless on when it sleeps or it'll download the 1.4.1 software and ruin all your hard work. :(

Conclusion
