Lollipop For Nook Tablet, Nook HD and Nook HD+, how does it work?

We’ve heard lots of people asking for Lollipop for Nooks so after we’d developed it for the Kindles we decided it was time to build something for the Nooks too.  Many users of Nook Tablet, Nook HD and Nook HD+ 

One of the things we’ve heard a few complaint s about, especially on the Nook Tablet is that running Android from an SD card isn’t as great an experience as everybody would like, sometime the Nook ignores the SD card and doesn’t boot from it, sometimes it’s slow and buggy (caused by the SD card not the software most of the time) and sometimes people just simply say that they have no need of rtes Old restricted Barnes & Nobble operating system.  After all, there isn’t really much that you can’t do on the stock Operating system that can’t be done (usually better) on full Android.  

So with this in mind we set out to create a simple easy installer that replaced the Nooks internal, restricted software with Android Lollipop.  After a lot of trials we came up with a very simple system.  All you need is a 2GB (or larger) Micro SD card and a computer, a Mac or Windows PC is fine.  The software writes the installer on the SD card, you turn off your Nook, insert the SD card, connect the power cable and start your device.  Thats all you need to do.  From there on the Installer will install Android Lollipop on your Nook Tablet, Nook HD or Nook HD+.  Once installed you remove the SD card and thats it.  Your Nook is now running Android Lollipop, it really is that simple!

Lollipop For Nook Tablet, Nook HD and Nook HD+ general features

Perfectly Android bases its releases on CyanogenMod Open Source software development. CyanogenMod is an Open Source operating system based on Android which itself is also Open Source. CyanogenMod is often abbreviated to just CM.  Put simply, CyanogenMod is Google Android with some useful features added in.  CyanogenMod also has a number of customisation features that the basic Android Lollipop does not have.  

After purchase you will receive a download which needs a Windows or Mac (yes we have a mac version!) computer along with an SD Card writer and 2GB Micro SD Card

CyanogenMod has a very active development community and without CyanogenMod many devices would simply not have an open version of Android available for install.

Where possible we attempt to ensure that all features will work on your Nook but some features may not yet be available. Unfortunately, some features may never be able to be implemented due to driver or hardware limitations.  

CyanogenMod Lollipop Edition for Nook comes with everything you’d expect from our releases, namely access to the Google Play Store. The Google Play store is often referred to as the Google App store.  

After purchase, support from our team will be available to you, just in case you have difficulty installing our software. 

Many issues can be dealt with just as quickly via an email ticket by using our Contact Us form.  While you may get replies on the weekend via a support ticket, our normal working days are Monday through Friday.  We do our very best to answer all tickets promptly.  This usually means within a couple of hours (often sooner) during working hours. In busy periods we can take up to 48 hours to reply.

We also include free OTA (Over The Air) updates to all our future releases of Android Lollipop from your Lollipop install on your Nook Tablet, Nook HD and Nook HD+.  This allows for simple updates which help with stability, performance and reliability.  

You will be notified on your device when these updates are available and guided through the install process. These updates will, in most cases, be totally trouble free and not require anything more than a simple tap to install.  Usually all existing software and settings on your Nook will remain intact.

Lollipop for Nook design features

Lollipop has had a noticeable cosmetic revamp over KitKat on your Nook. You will notice a few subtle and some not so subtle changes to the overall look and general operation of Android on your Nook.  The new look used in Android Lollipop has been called “Material” by Google.  There are of course lots of similarities with the previous KitKat so you will still be very much at home using it. We think you’ll agree that the new design used in Lollipop is more pleasing on the eye during use, shall we just say it’s more “up to date”.  

The new look has been cleaned and polished, making it feel more pleasing to use. There are shadows which give on screen items a more natural look and also give a feeling of depth and realism to the items on your screen.  This is achieved using layers and this in turn will allow app developers to create apps that have a more up to date design. Over time more and more apps will take advantage of the layers, making everything seem more unified across all the apps available for your Nook Tablet, Nook HD and Nook HD+  via the Google Play store.

Users of KitKat for Nook will also notice that the on screen buttons such as Home, Back and Multitasking switcher have a new more simple look too.

Lollipop for Nook Battery life

Lollipop for your Nook Tablet, Nook HD and Nook HD+ will now be able to take advantage of a battery saving mode when your Nook battery is low.  This will reduce power hungry features when the battery in your Nook becomes low.  This will in turn allow you to eek out every last bit of juice form your Nook’s battery. 

Google has also added useful battery stats access for developers.  This new feature in Android Lollipop will allow developers to tune battery usage more finely. Google have called this system “Project Volta”.  Project Volta gives developers more tools to see what part of their app is draining battery, then tweak their apps to provide better efficiency and give their user improved battery performance.  

Android Lollipop Security features for your Nook

Under the hood of Android Lollipop, Google have made great leaps in security.  Everything is now far more secure on a core level.  This makes Lollipop less likely to be open to attacks form hackers and those that want your information without your permission.  Lollipop also has features such as facial recognition, which we are looking at adding to our Lollipop for Nook releases.

For those that are interested in tinkering with their devices further, you will also have complete control of what has access to “Root” privileges.  While we don’t support users tweaking their devices at a Root level, we certainly won’t stop you.  

Notification improvements in Lollipop for Nook

We all like to be notified of what’s going on in our online world.  Notifications now have the ability to be displayed on the lock screen. Lollipop also has the ability to control what notifications are displayed, this makes them far more useful. You can set notification so that you only see what you want to see and automatically ignore the rest!

 

Rounding Up Android Lollipop (CM12) for Nook Tablet, Nook HD and Nook HD+

There are far more features in Android Lollipop than we have covered above, but we think we’ve covered a lot of what our users wanted to know.

As always, with our releases, you get an operating system without the limitations of Amazons own software. You get an up to date operating system without having to fork out for a whole new device.  

We believe that our users will love the new feel and performance offered by Perfectly Android Lollipop.

So without further ado, here are the links directly to your products for purchase:

    I only own Linux boxes and have not had any luck with running windoz VM’s to dl n2a and other similar cards. Any chance you sell pre-loaded cards? Does your product provide root access like n2a cards did(i assume they are out of business)? Root access is very important to me as I don’t consider a device w/out root access to actually belong to me. Anyway, any help/info you can provide would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

      HI Kyle,

      I’m afraid we don’t sell Premade cards sorry. For Nooks, you don’t need a VM, windows or Mac OS is supported. For Kindles, there is no such thing as an SD card for them as they do not have An SD Card slot. Windows only is supported for upgrading Kindles to Android with our software.

      Sorry we couldn’t be more help.

      Regards
      Huw
