  • Burning the SDCARD 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 with it.
  • Download and install 7-Zip 9.34 alpha (Win) or EZ 7z/7zX (Mac)
  • Download the latest *_HD_SDC_NOEMMC_IMG.7z file (SDCARD IMAGE)
  • If you don’t see file extensions in Windows, go to “Folder Options” and deselect “Hide extenstions…”
  • Extract the file *_HD_SDC_NOEMMC_IMG.7z with 7zip to get the image file *_HD_SDC_NOEMMC_IMG.img
  • Download and install Win32 Disk Imager (Win) or PiWriter (Mac)
  • Open the image file *_HD_SDC_NOEMMC_IMG.img and write the image file to the SDCard with Win32 Disk Imager/PiWriter or similar application.
  • Copy the latest *_HD_SDC_NOEMMC.zip (SDCARD ROM) onto the SDCard
  • Insert the SDCard into the Nook device and power on the device
  • Hold the “n” button to load the Cyanoboot menu
  • Select 2) SDC RECOVERY to boot into TWRP Recovery
  • For TWRP Recovery: Mount > Select “Boot” > Click “Home” button > Install > (Up a Level) > boot > Select *_HD_SDC_NOEMMC.zip > Swipe to install > Reboot System
  • (If your screen goes black during installation, it’s because of screen timeout. You can disable it in the settings.)
  • First time booting into CM-11.0 will take a couple minutes
  • IMPORTANT NOTES AFTER INSTALLATION:
  • Do not delete the “devconf” folder on your micro SD Card as it contains your faux “MACAddress” and “DeviceID”. With a bricked Nook HD+ with no EMMC, the partition containing your device informations are gone. So fake a 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.
  • For further informations, please checkout previous post on CM11.0 for Nook HD+. If your device lag too much, change to a difference SDCard.

nookhd 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?

I do not have a Nook HD, so I can only rely on feedback. For quicker answer, it is better to Google/Bing or look on XDA. Source codes changes daily, so new features will be added down the line.

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).
