  • IMPORTANT NOTES:
  • DO NOT DELETE the “devconf” folder on your micro SD Card as it contains your faux “MACAddress” and “DeviceID”. Bricked Nook HD+ with no EMMC mean the partition with your device informations are gone. So fake mac address and serial number will suffice.
  • If you know your real device MAC Address, you can replace it with the fake one by editing the “MACAdress” file. Certain routers and modems have a log of devices connected with their mac address that you can use that to pinpoint your real mac address.
  •     Changing Mac Address:
  •     1. Modify the “MACAddress” file inside the “devconf” folder on your micro SD Card with any 12-digit hexadecimal numbers.
  •     2. Boot into CM 11.0 and turn off your Wi-Fi in the Settings.
  •     3. Open “File Manager”>Settings>Enable “Root Access mode”
  •     4. Browse to and delete /system/etc/firmware/ti-connectivity/wl1271-nvs.bin file.
  •     5. Open up Terminal and type commands,
  •        $ su
  •        # sh /system/bin/fix-mac.sh
  •     6. Turn on Wi-Fi.
  • Your real Device ID or serial number is located under the micro SD Card cover. You can edit the “DeviceID” file with your real serial number.
  • To expand the DATA partition of your micro SD Card after burning the SDCARD IMAGE, you need to boot into “SDC Recovery” at the Cyanoboot menu. Wait for device to boot into TRWP and then mount “Boot” and un-mount “Data”. Browse to the “Boot” folder and install the “flashable_expand_bootable_sdcard_noemmc_ovation.zip” file. Reboot into TWRP and follow the steps to install the “flashable_expand_bootable_sdcard_noemmc_ovation.zip” file again to complete the process before rebooting into CM 11.0.
  • When booting into CM 11.0, it will take a couple minutes at the animation screen for the first time.
  • For further informations, please checkout previous post on CM11.0 for Nook HD+. If your device lag too much, change to a difference SDCard.
  • Fuzz 8×8 kernel for 25APR2014 ROM (default fuzz is 3×5, rename the old kernel and copy over the new one)

CM11.0 KitKat (Android 4.4.2) for Nook Tablet (SDC/IMG) (03JUN2014)

nooktablet KitKat have been out for a while on many devices. I have been busy working to get it running on Nook devices. What are the changes in KitKat?
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Android_version_history

Nook HD+ is my main tablet and so I spent more time working on it. I spent the last couple of days getting the Nook Tablet running. It was straightforward. The kernel on the Nook Tablet is not great. I have play with it a little, but it is sufficient for now. The device still has bad battery with Wi-Fi on during sleep. Wi-Fi will not connect on wake if you do not keep Wi-Fi on during sleep. You can still turn Wi-Fi off then on to connect. This is partly because Google dropped the TI WPA supplicant support. You also get unknown mac address in status. Not all is bad because there are solutions. KitKat is snappier than Jellybean. You will not see Tablet UI and you cannot switch mount point by editing build.prop. Screen record is not working on OMAP devices yet.

Here are some recommendations for the device. I recommend turning off Wi-Fi (swipe down from Status bar and select Wi-Fi tile from the Quick Settings panel) before you put the device to sleep and turning on Double-tap to sleep (Settings>Interface>Status bar> Double-tap to sleep, status bar is the top bar) or “go to sleep” tile.  If you do not like booting into landscape lock-screen then turn on Rotate lock screen (Settings>Display>Rotation>Rotate lock screen).

Paranoid Android 3+ Review by datmexicankidd

  • This is a test build of ParanoidAndroid AOSPA 3.+ for Nook Tablet.

  • The main thing you’ll notice is the addition of Pie, a customizable softkeys/statusbar.
  • You’ll unlock “Developer options” by tapping “Build number” 7 times.
  • There is no “Performance” settings, so you’ll have to use set CPU app or init script for CPU settings.
  • The default CPU settings is 1008MHz max and Interactive governor.
  • What I added are CMFileManager, Sound Recorder, and Terminal Emulator.
  • AOSP is bare bone Android.
  • If you are used to CM settings, you’ll find there are missing settings here.
  • What’s not working? You tell me. PA sources are still rolling out.
  • Serial Number is unknown, I can’t resolve it.
  • What work? Wifi, Audio, Mic, Video playback
  • If you’d like to help the Paranoid Android team, you can buy their Paranoid Android Preferences app on Google Play.
  • Use at your own risk.
  • Clear Data/Factory reset and Dalvik Cache before flashing if you are on CM build.
  • Booting can take several minutes so be patient.
  • Questions and Answers
  • TO DO LIST:
  • Lots of things
  • Can’t take screenshot in newer build due to SurfaceFlinger.
  • No battery percentage implemented yet.
  • CHANGELOGS:
  • ParanoidAndroid source
  • ParanoidAndroid on G+
  • 02/23 – Repo synced, kernel updated to 3.0.66, compiled with GCC 4.7, look at the PA source history for further changes.
