Why Froyo? Seems like the Gingerbread-based ROMs are more stable.

B&N's 1.2 firmware is built on top of Froyo 2.2. Any reason you haven't updated to B&N 1.3? If your current 1.2 is rooted, then you already have what you're asking for. If not, your options are to root your current system, replace it with a custom ROM such as CM7 (Gingerbread 2.3.7), or install CM7 on a bootable SD card, leaving the stock install in place.

I have a blog post half-finished going over all the options--if I wrap it up tonight, I'll come back and post it, but those are your main resources.

Thanks! I just got a Nook color, and was trying to figure out which was the best way to go--the nooter or the SD card method, and this summary with instructions was incredibly helpful!
