    Reference and thanks to guys at nookdevs.com: NookColor Email - nookDevs

    -Plug you NC up your your PC.
    -Unlock screen, so NC goes into usb mode
    -Download Email.apk from Android 2.1 (Email.apk)
    -Move the Email.apk to a folder in c:\android-adk-windows\apps
    -On your PC, open command prompt (cmd)
    -Make your way to c:\android-adk-windows\apps
    -Type "adb kill-server"
    -Type "adb remount" (should see remount failed: No such files or directory)

    -Now type the following:
    adb shell
    mount -o rw,remount -t ext2 /dev/block/mmcblk0p5 /system
    exit
    adb push Email.apk /system/app
    adb shell
    chmod 644 /system/app/Email.apk
    reboot

    -Your NC will reboot

    You should be able to setup any IMAP, POP3, Exchange2003, Exchange 2007, and Exchange2010 email account as long as you know the server information to key in.


    Merry Christmas!

    Hi,
    I tried your advice today, and interestingly the 'adb' command is not recognized on my laptop. I am running W7 64b.

    What is your advice to get around this problem?

    Here is the screen capture of the error on my computer.

    Fred, you need to have installed ADB on your pc for it to work.

    Are you rooted or running stock?

    When you plug up your NC to your laptop, remember to unlock the NC so it can go into "usb mode". If you don't get "remount failed" in command window then your adb is not talking to your NC.

    Will this installation only work if the NC is rooted?
