Android 3.0 ported to Nook Color with graphics acceleration Developer/hacker "@deeper-blue" has posted a quick video this weekend of how he ported the new tablet-optimized OS Android 3.0 to run on the Nook Color.
Deeper-Blue is able to boot the OS, and control the device, but functionality is still somewhat limited.

The hacker is now working on completing graphics acceleration, which should speed up the interface, which currently runs slowly.

Says the hacker (via XDA):

Graphics acceleration more or less working. The SGX driver seems too old for some buffer request of android 3.0, so right now the statusbar is invisible but still functional. Not sure if I can fix that or have to wait for the AOSP release.

What is not working... pretty much everything else, no accelerometer, no wlan, no sound. Haven't started working on those things yet.

This would be cool if this could run on other e-readers.
