I wrote previously about how much I
was using and enjoying my 9-inch Barnes and Noble Nook HD+. I’m still using and
enjoying it, but a few of the things I mentioned in that article—the useless home
screen, the schizophrenic updates from two app stores at once, and so
on—started to annoy me. I started to fantasize about installing a clean,
uncluttered Android operating system on it instead of using the Nook operating
system. The best-known general-purpose Android OS is CyanogenMod, and that’s
what I was thinking about.
Last time I did this, I didn’t like the result. I’ll explain why, then move on
to show you how to install CyanogenMod easily on the Nook HD+ and talk about the
results. (I’m very happy thus far).
