  • 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.

Xylon XYAOSP 2.+ JB 4.2.2 for Nook Tablet (SDC BOOT) (27APR2013)

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.

xylon2WHAT IS IT?
Xylon is fully transformed distribution for Android Devices. It is designed to take full advantage of the device’s hardware and to provide the user pure Android experience.

 The team is constantly working on making things better for the users and is happy to do so. We, the team, believe that for one to experience the pure taste of Android, he/she should be provided with something which is fast, intuitive and fluid – That’s where we come in – To provide you that.

 Xylon started as a part of the Fruits & Veggies (FNV) project, a community ROM for the Galaxy Nexus and is now set up individually but its roots are based on FNV. Remicks, the founder of the FNV – inspired Daniel MM (Daxmax, founder of Xylon) to build something that would make users love what they use. In Daniel’s words – “This is an FNV based ROM, not FNV. But it has the winds of FNV, and it has more spacious features around the Android world.” http://xylon.androidvenue.com/about

FEATURES:
Phone, Phablet, and Tablet UI
Customized Trebuchet Launcher
A lot of customization
Compiled with Google’s GCC 4.7 toolchain.
Linaro’s compiler flags, O3 and Linaro string routine)
Kernel 3.0.66+
CWM 6.0.28
SuperSU

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS

CHANGELOGS:
Look at XYAOSP source history for further changes, I will not post them.
02/27 – Repo synced, Initial build so there could be many bugs.
03/06 – Repo synced, kernel updated to 3.0.68 with new lowmemorykiller, font size increased a little in statusbar and Trebuchet, you can increase icon size to 120% in Trebuchet, gesture control in Trebuchet, new SuperUser (Koush’s).
IMPORTANT NOTES: If you noticed null icons (no action icons) on the NavBar then you need to go to Settings > XY Tools > Navigation Bar > Menu (The vertical three dots) and Reset navbar icons/targets. For Navigation Ring to work, you need to clear data/data1 if you are on previous build.
04/27 – Repo synced, kernel updated 3.0.75, a lot of changes I don’t remember, auto temp control, re-added 1200MHz (use 800MHz/Wheatley for better battery life), disabled deep sleep for better battery in sleep & device wake when plugged/unplugged, CWM 6.0.3.1. IMPORTANT NOTES: BACK UP YOUR DATA. This build might require factory reset (INT boot)/data1 wipe (SDC boot). If your first boot resulted in black screen, press & hold power button for 20 seconds then re-press a couple seconds to turn device on and try booting again. Changing governor or having cable plugged in to PC can cause this.

TO DO LIST:
Lots of things

How to Guide: Bootable (CM7/CM9/CM10) SDCard for Nook Tablet

Notes:

  • DO NOT SELL PREBUILT SDCARD WITH ROM
  • You need to have a microSD card 2GB or bigger.
  • Don’t update your touch panel firmware if you want dual or triple-boot.
  • Read CM10.0 Jelly Bean for Nook Tablet if you want to downgrade the firmware.
  • Not all microSD card brands are made equal.
  • I always recommend SanDisk due to fast small block random write.
  • Only CM10 support 5-touchs/10-touchs driver currently.
  • CM10 currently have problem with SDCard dismount when device goes to deep sleep.
  • This causes the device to not awake when turning it back on.
  • You have to hold the power button for 20 seconds and then power it back on.
  • Added comments for Ubuntu

CM7.2 Nook Tablet Build 20120630

Home Screen


Notes:

  • IT WORK WITH 512MB/8GB NOOK TABLET

  • PLEASE LEAVE A COMMENT IF IT WORK ON YOUR 8GB NOOK TABLET
  • This build incorporate fattire’s Cyanoboot
  • CIFS/NFS/TUN are built into the kernel
  • Camera, VoiceDialer, CMStats, CMupdateNotify apps are removed
  • CMWallpapers, Androidian and Cyanbread themes are removed
  • LCD density is set to 240 (160 is default, allow you to see more apps in Google Play, looks better)
  • CWM Recovery 5.0.2.8 (INT Recovery) is included
  • NT has trouble with playback and capture audio at same time
  • 20120612 There is a slight bug with wifi causing random reboot/freeze
  • 20120614 Fixed reboot problem, added new wallpaper (revert omapfb.vram=0:16M back to omapfb.vram=0:5M)
  • 20120615 New kernel (added support for CCMP, 1200MHz OC), reboot to recovery now boot into recovery (removed cyanoboot from recovery.img) 
  • I’d removed the RC1 part. CM7.2 is final  as of 615 (stable) as Cyanogenmod will now focus on CM9. I will still work on fixing CM7 for NT.
  • 20120618 Display correct mac, can install apps that installed to removable storage.
  • To save battery, try Settings->CyanogenMod settings->Performance->CPU settings ->Max CPU frequency (1008 MHz), Available governors (Performance), Set on boot.
  • If Nook Tablet is not charging (green LED light), just reinsert USB cable (orange LED light)
  • 20120628 Fixed no deep sleep. Set Operating Condition Addendum for CORE OPP voltages. FileManager and RomManager apps are removed. Perfect Viewer, Button Savior, ES File Explorer, Flash Player, and CifsManager apps are included. Included u-boot and MLO from stock 1.4.3. Kernel compiled from 1.4.3 source.
  • If you want to remove those apps, use ES File Explorer (Settings>Root Explorer, Mount File System) and go to /system/app/ to delete them.
  • 20120629 Revert voltages (battery drain). Removed Flash Player (not working properly). Maybe final build unless some crippling bugs shows up.
  • 20120630 Small change to build.prop that fix forced close when using mic. You can also edit the build.prop yourself using ES File Explorer (in Root Explorer setting). Change ‘media.stagefright.enable-record=false’ to ‘media.stagefright.enable-record=true’. Removed some unneeded files.
  • There were 2 goals I wanted to achieve with CM7. I wanted USB host to work with OTG cable so you can use USB devices. Unfortunately I don’t have a powered USB hub to test with my OTG cable. Second, I wanted to test different configurations with kernel and device source. It led to many mistakes, but it was fun fixing it. I think I am done with CM7 and moving on to compiling and testing CM9 permanent.
