Barnes and Noble released an eReader software update this week. It enhances the features available on the Nook Color, but unfortunately it doesn’t enable 802.1x! We will never be able to use a Nook on campus if the stock software won’t get on our WiFi.
I booted this device to an SD card with a vanilla Android ROM last week, but I don’t know if that can be an institutional solution.
Hey everyone! I finally got around to putting a custom ROM on this Nook Color tablet. It was quite easy! I used Cyanogenmod 7 and followed the instructions. A couple of downloads, a little configuration, and there we go. Installing apps and setting up accounts is by far the most time-consuming part of the process. This isn’t too surprising. iPads, tablets, phones, etc are highly personal items these days and most of them don’t have user profiles built in.
Maybe the thing to do would be to build a microSD card without all of the account details, make an image of that, then copy it to another card. Then I could have my very own personalized bootable card, but could hand a generic default one to someone else on a moment’s notice.
