Barnes & Noble’s Nook is getting Android 4.4 KitKat these days, but not officially. The folks of N2A Cards have updated their specialized plug and play SD card, that offers the Nook Color, Nook Tablet, Nook HD and Nook HD+ the ability to boot into stock Android 4.4 KitKat.


N2A cards come with a price, so preloaded microSD cards with everything you need to get KitKat running can be bought from the N2A site for $30. You can also use your own SD card and download the software for $20. Previous N2A customers will get the KitKat update for just $10. The good news is that you can easily return to the stock Barnes & Noble software if you want to.

Even though the Nook tablets are starting to feel old and useless nowadays, it takes an update like the one I just mentioned to breathe new life into the devices. We can’t tell how good KitKat runs on the devices, but since it’s a lighter Android we hope for the best. If you want a slight tutorial on the N2A thing, there’s a video below:
