Port Android 4.X Ice Cream Sandwich To Nook Color

This is a how to port Android 4.x to the non-Ice Cream Supported device, of course this kind of heavy lifting job is from nowhere but XDA Forum -- at least most of the time. This time Nook Color device was chosen and will take the honor for Android ICS installation or porting.

Before step further to port Andrord ICS to Nook Color, read this: No one will be responsible for any data loss, device damaged or bricked, or even the death of your cat's father after you probably "hit the wrong button". Thus what shall happen, is entirely at your own risk and you are own your own.
