Hello.

 

I would be interested in installing Accordance on my rooted Nook Simple Touch (because of the e-Ink screen being way better for reading). However, the Nook ST has Android 2.1 OS, and the specs here require Android 5.

 

I do not know the programming side of things well enough to know: are there technical advances between the two that would make it difficult to allow that early of an OS to use Accordance? If you don't know, could I volunteer to be a pre-pre-pre-beta tester to see how it might work? :-D

 

Thanks for everything you guys do around here!

Best,

Colin

In short, yes, there are differences in the OS that caused us to draw a line where we did. (That, and the market shares on the older systems didn't merit the additional testing required for so few devices.) We took advantage of some newer OS features that makes going back too far into the old OS versions difficult to justify. Especially since, on Android, newer devices are relatively inexpensive.

Fair enough. Thanks for the response!
