CM11.0 KitKat (Android 4.4.4) for Nook HD (SDC/IMG) (27SEP2014)


  • Installation:
  • (You should know the risks of installing ROM and will bear responsibility if anything bad were to happen to your device.)
  • Create a bootable micro SDCard. Read my previous posts on creating bootable SDCard or look it up on XDA or follow the instructions in the SDCARD IMAGE section.
  • If you want to install the ROM from your SDCard, you need to create a 250MB BOOT partition to store the ROM.
  • Copy the files from Nook HD Boot onto your bootable SDCard.
  • Your Device should boot into Cyanoboot if you’d successfully created a bootable SDCard.
  • You can boot into CWM recovery by choosing the option “SDCARD ALTBOOT” or TWRP by choosing the option “SDCARD RECOVERY”.
  • Then install the ROM.
  • Burning the image to the SDCard itself will not boot the device into cm-11.0 without the following instructions.
  • You need to install the SDCARD ROM to the SDCard first for the device to boot into cm-11.0.
  • Instructions:
  • Download and install SDFormatter V4.0 (Win/Mac) and format your SDCard
  • Download and install 7-Zip 9.34 alpha (Win) or EZ 7z/7zX (Mac)
  • Download the latest *_HD_SDC_IMG.7z file
  • If you don’t see file extensions in Windows, go to “Folder Options” and deselect “Hide extenstions…”
  • Extract the file *_HD_SDC_IMG.7z with 7zip to get the image file *_HD_SDC_IMG.img
  • Download and install Win32 Disk Imager (Win) or PiWriter (Mac)
  • Open the image file *_HD_SDC_IMG.img and write the image file to the SDCard with Win32 Disk Imager or PiWriter or similar application.
  • Copy the latest * (SDCARD ROM) onto the SDCard
  • (You can copy the INTERNAL ROM onto the SDCard to install the ROM to your internal EMMC)
  • Insert the SDCard into the Nook device and power on the device
  • Hold the “n” button to load the Cyanoboot menu
  • Select 4) SDCARD RECOVERY to boot TWRP Recovery or 3) SDCARD ALTBOOT to boot CWM Recovery (flipped screen)
  • For TWRP Recovery: Install> (Up a Level)> sdcard > Select * > Swipe to install > Reboot System
  • For CWM Recovery: Install zip > Choose zip from /external_sd > Select * > Select “Yes – Install…” > Click power button to go back to the main menu > Reboot system now
  • First time booting into CM-11.0 will take a couple minutes

    Do you think those updated gpu drivers can be applied to our devices?

    • iamafanof says:

      No, because Nook HD can do hardware video encoding and decoding. From my understanding, the Galaxy Nexus developers had to update the device kernel to 3.x because Google dropped the support on Galaxy Nexus. Nook HD already had kernel 3.x provided by BN and updated by verygreen which had the latest drivers. We are already on Android 4.4.4.

    This build is a lot better than my last build in the CM11 Android 4.4.2 post because I can finally test it. No artifacts or freezes so far. I’ve been using it for over a week. This device feels nicer than the Nook Tablet. The SDCard slot is still a pain. I’d removed the slot cover because it’s annoying.
