Default Anibody selling MicroSD with Android v4

Would like to get an microSD with the latest version of Android (4) to run on my NookColor. I have tried version Honeycomb but has to many things that do not run or freeze. Thanks a lot

HC is crap. It's a Frankenstein collection of drivers and files from various HC tablets and the HC SDK. If you see something similar for Android 4 (ICS), it'll be just from the SDK (ICS programming app). For now, CM7.1 (Android 3.2) is your best bet. We have a guide here that tells how to do it to save yourself $20.

ICS isn't even available on phones yet (another 7 to 14 days) and it takes about a month for the source code to be released after that. Add a couple months of dev time more before we see the first build, so it'll be Feb at the soonest before you see your first unstable build.

Dalingrin has stated he's not sure if the Nook Color will get ICS, but it's possible someone else might pick up the project. Upgrading to the Nook Tablet might increase your prospects for ICS tho.

I thought CM7.1 was Android 2.3 (Gingerbread)?

There are people that sell them. Why not just make a card? ICS isn't ready for use as a daily driver on the Nook yet any way.

There is only one version that has been released. It has no sound, no 3d acceleration, it's barely usable. You won't see any thing worth using until at least 2012.

So, to get back on track, if it is available, you don't want it.
