    this is for the droid 2 right? there is a nook color reference.

    Once the update process is done, the device will be landing up in the recovery mode. Now, select “++++ Go Back ++++” > “reboot system now” to reboot the phone. That’s it you have now successfully updated the nook color with the latest ICS Android 4.0.3 firmware.
