Flashable File to Create Bootable SDCard for Nook Tablet
Mar 15, 2013 4 Comments
WHAT IS THIS?
It’s a flashable file (a file that you can install from recovery) that will create a bootable SDCard for your Nook Tablet.
What it does is creates 4 partitions on your SDCard.
100MB for partition 1 (BOOT)
400MB for partition 2 (SYSTEM1)
Size for partition 3 (DATA1) and partition 4 (SDCARD) vary.
It’ll also copy over boot files to your SDCard, making the SDCard bootable on your Nook Tablet.
This will only work with the provided CWM 220.127.116.11 because it contains fdisk with advanced options.
Format your SDCard with SDFormatter if you are on Windows and OSX. Linux? GParted.
Copy CWM 18.104.22.168 recovery (renamed the internal recovery img to recovery.img) to your SDCard.
Copy flashable_create_bootable_sdcard.zip to your internal storage.
if [ Stock_Rom ]; then
# If you are still on Stock Rom, you need to be rooted and have terminal installed.
# Open up terminal.
# Backup stock recovery
dd if=/dev/block/mmcblk0p3 of=/sdcard/stock_recovery.img
# Store the stock_recovery.img on your computer for future need.
# Install CWM 22.214.171.124 recovery
dd if=/sdcard/recovery.img of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p3
# Boot to recovery. Power up device by holding Power + Home keys.
# If you already have previous CWM version of recovery installed, just flash the new one.
Insert formatted SDCard.
Make sure the USB cable is not plugged into your computer.
1) Install zip from sdcard
– choose zip from internal sdcard
Ignored the “can’t unmount /dev/block/mmcblk1p1”.
Be patient with the loading bar. It’s not frozen, just wait.
The larger the DATA1 size, the longer the process take.
Power off device and turn it on again.
If successful, it will boot into Cyanoboot.
Then you can install *SDC Rom.
The default data1 (Partition 3) size is 600MB in flashable_create_bootable_sdcard.zip.
600MB is for 2GB SDCard
1000MB is for 4GB SDCard
2000MB is for 8GB SDCard
3000MB is for 16GB-64GB SDCard
4000MB/5000MB is for 32GB /64GB SDCard
To make data1 size larger, just rename the file ‘createsd_*.sh’ to ‘createsd.sh’ inside flashable_create_bootable_sdcard.zip.
Complete scripts with 4000MB/5000MB DATA1 size.
