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.

DO THIS AT YOUR OWN RISK.
I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE IF YOU BRICKED YOUR DEVICE.
Do research and reading if you are uncertain about this rom.

pacWHAT IS IT?
There are many great ROMs out there, with the more popular ones being AOSPA (ParanoidAndroid), CM10.1, and AOKP. Being all great ROMs, it is sometimes difficult to choose which one you want to run. Why choose when you can have all three? P.A.C.-Man ROM is combination of all three ROMs, so you don’t need to keep switching or deciding between which one to flash. Get all of the features in one ROM!

FEATURES:
Phone, Phablet, and Tablet UI
Customized Trebuchet Launcher
A lot of customizations (PIE nav, hybrid settings, per-app color)
Based on ParanoidAndroid, AOKP, and CyanogenMod
Kernel 3.0.70+
CWM 6.0.3.0

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS

  • 03/22 – Repo synced, Initial build so there could be many bugs.
  • 03/29 – Repo synced, kernel updated to 3.0.71, fixed: calendar crashing in portrait mode, boot animation, high battery drainage in deep sleep, some heat issues when device is in high load (maxed frequency) for long period, removed phone and phablet ui from Hybrid Properties (Default Tablet UI) , default boot orientation is landscape (Don’t ask why).
  • 04/10 – Repo synced, kernel updated to 3.0.72, NO MORE DEEP SLEEP (deep sleep does not help reduce battery drainage when device sleep but causes problems with our current kernel), improved battery drainage in sleep, the device will wake and get charged when you plugged in power cable, changed default governor to Wheatley for lower battery usage, added back 1.2GHz, removed faked battery data (you will need to do a full charge, green light, to get accurate battery stats), used Wi-Fi codes from BN, Wi-Fi is set to turn off when the device sleep, added back default dual-pane preferences, latest CWM 6.0.3.0 recovery, make use of sdcard0 (EMMC) as default storage for those without SDCard, added back Phablet UI to Hybrid properties (Navigation bar buttons and Battery bar options only work in Phablet UI currently). 


(Recommended factory reset for internal rom, clear data1/cache for sdcard rom)
GooManager: Rom ending in *SDC is for SDCARD boot, don’t get it mixed up with internal rom.
