Nook Tablet receives experimental CyanogenMod 9 nightlies

Before I proceed, here is a quick refresher course on just what the Nook Tablet is all about – this is a 7″ tablet that sports a 1024 x 600 pixel display, running on a 1GHz TI OMAP4 dual-core processor that is decent enough to get most of the basics done without batting an eyelid, while a custom version of the Android 2.3 Gingerbread operating system that was designed by Barnes & Noble handles the user interface. However, this does not mean that the more enterprising of users have been idle, but rather, they did run alternative versions of Android including CyanogenMod 7 (Android 2.3 Gingerbread) and CyanogenMod 9 (Android 3.0 Honeycomb) on the tablet for some time already.

It seems that CyanogenMod 7 for the Nook Tablet has proven itself to be rather stable till now, folks who want to give Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich a go might be more wary – as Netflix video playback is not supported, while you tend to go through “sleep of death” issues which describes the situation where the tablet does not return to life after pressing the power button, resulting in you performing a full reboot instead. Unofficial nightly builds of CyanogenMod 9 are now available for the Nook Tablet if you are interested, but just make sure your Nook Tablet has 1GB RAM and 16GB of internal storage space before proceeding at your own risk.
