How to give your Nook tablet/color Android capability without rooting.

Nook Tablet Android Hack

This guide is for people that wish to have Android on their Nook but don’t want to do any complicated rooting processes. The reason I made this is because I tried to root my Nook tablet with no results at all and it was a waste of time; rooting may work for you but may not. I hope you enjoy the simple project below. :)
