How To Read Kindle Books On NookColor

If you upgraded from a Kindle to a NookColor this Christmas, you don’t have to lose your Kindle library. Hackers have figured out a way to run Kindle’s Android based eReader app on the Nook Color.

CrunchGear reports: “To root the device you need one of the Autorooter images and Win32ImageWriter for Windows or Mac OS/Linux tools to write the image to an MicroSD card. Then you upload the Kindle app from the Android store and rock out. This process also adds GMail, YouTube, and a number of other standard Android goodies to your previously stripped-down NookColor.”

According to BlogKindle.com, you only need five minutes, a NookColor with USB cable, a microSD card larger than 128MB and an SD card reader.
