CM11.0 KitKat (Android 4.4.2) for Nook HD+ (SDC/IMG) (28APR2014)

cm11
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

Some of the things I have noticed that are different are the android browser sucks less. It is similar to Chrome now. There are new icons and transparent UI. Besides the missing SGT7 settings features, I have not notice any major improvement. The source codes however changed a lot. The compiling time also increased for me. CM-10.2 compiled under 50 minutes and CM-11.0 compiled in a little over 2 hours. I do not know if it is my setup. Source codes changes daily, so new features will be added down the line.

CM10.2 Jellybean (Android 4.3.1) for Nook HD+ (IMG/SDC Boot) (26NOV2013)

nookhd+

I know I am late to the party. A few XDA developers (verygreen, bokbokan) have been compiling Cyanogenmod for Nook HD/HD+ for a while now. I just have my Nook HD+ for couple of weeks. I have only started working on compiling CM for my Nook HD+ for a couple days. I am still learning as I go. One of the main reason I am doing this is because for some reason my refurbished device gets hot in the left corner where the processor is located using Stock OS. With CM, the device does not heat up my palm. CM also allows more flexibility to the device and extends its life.

Recovery for Nook Tablet (TWRP & CWM) (08/20)

This is my compiled recovery files.

Do not flash this into internal. It will not boot.
My compiled CM10 already have a recovery, TWRP CWM.
This TWRP build supports both 10-touchs and 2-touchs firmware.

  • Instructions:
  • Copy the altboot.img to the root of your SDCard.
  • At Cyanoboot screen, hold “n” to open boot menu.
  • Select option 6) SDC ALTBOOT to load TWRP/CWM.
  • If you want load TWRP/CWM without SDCard then you need to copy altboot.img to bootdata partition.
  • You can do it with ES File Explorer with root access.
  • At Cyanoboot screen, hold “n” to open boot menu.
  • Select option 3) INT ALTBOOT to load TWRP/CWM.
  • You can rename altboot to altboot1 – 3 or recovery
  • For emmc recovery.img, you need to use Cyanoboot’s fastboot.
  • ~: fastboot flash recovery recovery.img
  • Need more help? Google/Bing is your friend
  • flash_recovery_sdcard.zip, flash it with recovery.
  • What’s great about this is you can have both CWM and TWRP running on your device.
