My understanding is there are 2 types of ROM
1) Bootable ( which does not install on your Nook Color )
2) Flashing ROM to your advice - ( which you have to flash onto your device somehow - I'll pass that bridge when I'm interested in attempting this action )
My question is this
Is there any chance of my accidentally ( flashing ) installing a ROM onto my device by booting off a uSD card? Of is there some extra step that I would be a prompted to do - before any uSD card installs software onto Nook Color. I would like to eliminate the possibility of messing up the stock ROM - unknowingly if at all possible.
I'm gonna start with Nookie froyo - but I'd like to check out other ROM options that I can find via Bootable ROM.
Besides the 2/15 "Nookie Froyo" - where can I find other bootable ROM's that I could try out?
