My Nook Color to Android Tablet Challenge has been the third time I completed the task.
My mission was to bless my dad with the same options to expand his Nook Color’s power as I was enjoying. The bonus was that I was able to offer you, mysilentscream readers, the secrets to my success.
As I finish this week I’m left with a desire to share four truths about completing a project. I’ve been blessed with many good role models, high expectations and caring support, but with that in mind I know that when I take on a challenge I still have to do the work.

The past two days I explained that I wanted to to maximize the capabilities of my new Nook Color [NC] without altering its original state. I explained both my plans and my preparation in detail. Today I’ll explain exactly how I converted my NC into an Android Tablet.
NOTE: I completed this process using a computer running Windows 7.
My walkthrough requires you to have access to a wireless internet.
1. Insert the micro SD card into either an SD card reader or adapter and insert it into your computer.
2. Download the generic-sdcard-v1.3.img and unzip the file.

Yesterday I wrote about my determination to maximize the capabilities of my new Nook Color [NC]. Commenter Angi of peepsarecool complained about the cliffhanger. Sorry about that everyone. As I replied, “Would it help if it’s a tale of woe, angst, fear, failure and ultimately success? It’s like many classic novels.” =D
Thanks for reading, and now back to our tale of woe and Nook.
Since I was unwilling and a bit timid about the possibility of turning my gift into garbage I read extensively about the ways to mod a NC by booting the Android Operating system from an SD memory card.

We had dropped calls in my neighborhood with AT&T, my first carrier. I had great service in rural Wisconsin, but I had to walk out of my house to use Verizon.
Frustrated, I asked many people who visited my home what cell service they used and then I examined their phone and their “signal bars”. Wisely, we chose T-Mobile. We have had no problems with the our cell service nor with their customer service.
Everyone I talked to loves their iPhone. On the other hand Mashable readers seemed fond of the Google Android phones.
