If you happen to own a Nook tablet and love dabbling with custom ROMs, then you might be well pleased to hear that CyanogenMod 10.1 build that is based on the Android 4.2 Jelly Bean operating system is now available – unofficially, of course. This is made possible thanks to developer Kuzma30, who has been hard at work to port the popular custom version of Android to the Nook tablet. It is nice to know that just before the turn of the year to 2013, majority of the important features are said to be running peachy keen.
This unofficial CyanogenMod 10.1 build for the Nook tablet will support the new Android 4.2 keyboard, lock screen widgets, notification and settings pull-down windows. Sending it into deep sleep will also work without a cinch, while WiFi Direct capability is supported. Heck, while you are at it, why not throw in multiple user profiles to the tablet? Some bits and pieces which are not working include the microphone, while video could prove to be rather finicky. All in all, a commendable effort.
