    just wondering if booting from USB or SDcard is possible on these devices and where to find more info about it? is there something equivalent to a bios setting boot order or other way? thanks

    The bootloader contains instructions to boot the operating system. For the NOOKcolor, if there's a bootable ROM on the SDcard it boots from there otherwise from the one in the tablet storage.

    I'm moving your thread to the Android Tablet Q&A section for you, where more people are likely to join the discussion and try to help you. Good luck!

    hi vampirefo, this is great! and you say there "Yes this method can be used by any android." is this absolute? hi Spider, thanks for the info and move. now from my reading elsewhere it seems booting SDcard is possible but booting from USB is not possible. I will be giving your tutorial a try hopefully soon vampirefo. thanks guys!
