  • 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.

CM11.0 KitKat (Android 4.4.2) for Nook HD (SDC/XXX) (13JAN2013)


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?
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Android_version_history

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).

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.

PAC Rom 22.+ JB 4.2.2 for Nook Tablet (SDC BOOT) (10APR2013)

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

  • CHANGELOGS:
  • Look at PAC source history for further changes, I will not post them.
  • 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.

TO DO LIST:
Lots of things

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.
