Definition: A "nightly" is a bleeding edge release that is built on a daily basis, usually at night after a full day's worth of new code has been committed.

It could oftentimes be unstable and not properly tested, lacking any changelogs, but eventually evolving into alphas, betas, release candidates, and finally stable releases.

If you're still holding onto your B&N Nook Tablet, you might be excited to know that the aging slate can now run Android 4.2, courtesy of CyanogenMod. The Nook Tablet (codename 'acclaim') got its first taste of CM10.1 nightlies a few days ago, and they've been churning them out on a daily basis since.

    Nook Color has CM10.1 too! I'm still using CM10 on it though, it's more stable.

      I'm sticking with CM7.2 with the Nook Color. I think CM9 / CM10 are too heavy for the poor old tablet. :-(

        CM10 and CM10.1 actually run great on the Nook Color. Amazingly better than CM9 ever did. Whereas CM9 felt laggy in almost all aspects, CM10/CM10.1 feels smooth. That's not to say you won't run into the occasional stutter, but it's pretty rare and it truly feels like a new tablet, er, eReader. :)

        The hardware acceleration and Project Butter, at least in my opinion, are quite noticeable. Especially in the stock AOSP browser, and home screens. I own a Nexus 7, too. So, take it for what it's worth, when I say I'm impressed with what the old Nook Color can do still. :D

          I may just have to try it out then. Ran 7 for quite a while but since it's my 10-year-old who uses it mostly I ended up going back to the stock Nook. Anyone know if Ingress will run on it?

          • Simon Belmont

            I haven't tried Ingress yet, so I'm not sure. I imagine the Nook Color probably has the graphical power to run Ingress. I've actually been pretty impressed with what the Nook Color can still run very well given the hardware's age. Good stuff.

            It's more the location based stuff that Ingress uses that I'm not sure about because the Nook Color lacks a proper GPS. It can still use network (Wi-Fi) location services though, so maybe it'll work.

      I've been on the CM 10.1 betas (and alphas) pretty much since they've been released. A couple have had their bugs, but over all they're quite good. ;)

      Looking forward to CM10.1 going stable soon. I wonder if the Nookie Dev team will get Key Lime Pie onto the old girl. :D
