Re: How to download and install the Honeycomb on the Nook Color?

Looking at the requirement of yours I let you know that you should download and installed the Honeycomb on the computer of yours from the official website. you should have the SD card of upto 4 GB. You should have the SD card of either of 4 GB or more. You should unzip the file and use the Win32DiskImager. Into Disk you have to go for the Restore Virtual Image to Physical Drive. You have to change the option to All files and choose the desired file.

Re: How to download and install the Honeycomb on the Nook Color?

I want to make aware of basic thing which would be useful to you. If wanted to preserve the data you should be into the root of the computer of yours.
You should backup with the Titanium backup. Now execute the following command.
Code:
adb shell mount -o remount,rw /dev/block/mmcblk1 /
adb pull sdcard/[path to your adb folder, such as c:/sdk/tools/]/honeysd
adb shell mount -o remount,rw /dev/block/mmcblk1 /

adb push [path to your adb folder]/honeysd/ sdcard/
now you have to restore the backup.
