Ok... so I'm having a weird problem... I think... i was told to write the img to the sdcard and then move the rom i want to flash on it... the thing is, after I write the img to the sdcard I can't move files to the sdcard... it becomes inaccessible... i'm using a 1gb card and I've tried on both internal and external sdcard readers...

any help would be appreciated... thanks in advance...

Did you try "safely removing" it, unplugging your usb adapter, then plugging it back in?

If that doesn't work, your img file is corrupt or you're flashing it wrong.

I think w32 is easier to use than winimage.

i am using w32... i've used the 3.2.0.1 img on ClockworkMod ROM Manager - Recoveries and I've tried the 1gb_clockwork-3.2.0.1-eyeballer.img

after i write the image, i safely eject the card, disconnect the sdcard reader and reconnect the reader and insert the sdcard and right away it asks me if i want to format the sdcard...

Have you tried my images?

What else on your computer isn't working?

What version of windows are you running?

Is this a new sdcard? Do you get a warning when you insert it?

When you are done flashing (which should take several minutes), you're supposed to see 4 files on the card. How long does it take for you?

You are extracting the img file from the archive, right?

It sounds like a bad card. Do you have another one you can try?

Glad you figured it out, b/c I didn't think it was operator error.

Some launchers let you hide apps. You have to be careful what you freeze (with Titanium Backup Pro) or uninstall, because some phone things are required for it to work properly and give good battery life. Camera I would think could go tho. I don't sweat it.

So, I have successfully gotten one Nook rooted using CWM, and my boss asked me to do his. For his I used the new TWRP 2.1.1, foolishly, and have run into a major issue. After backing up the stock system, I wiped the system, the cache, and the dalvik cache, and when I went to install the new CM zip file, I couldn't seem to locate it, and the screen seemed to lag a little. Now the screen will not respond to pressure, and it is stuck on the TWRP lock screen saying swipe to unlock, but cannot use the screen. The power button won't turn it off either, so I can't even try to reboot. Any ideas?

Also, after taking out the SD card, it appears that there is no backup data on it at all, just the uboot files, and my CM7 & gapps file. I am feeling like I may have ****ed up badly.

Holding down the power button will turn it off, but may take 20-30 secs.

So, copy the CM7 and gapps to the sdcard and boot off of it again.

Why did you wipe system? That's usually not needed and makes your rom unbootable. Wiping caches just makes the next boot take longer, nothing detrimental to booting.

Using a 16 gig sd card and followed this guide exactly, but when I put it in my nook color with 1.4.2 it just boots normally. Any help would be appreciated! Thanks!

Are you sure you have the Nook Color and not the Nook Tablet? The tablet has a small microphone hole on the top, opposite the microphone, and uses a different procedure.

I count 3 threads with 1.4.3 in the title in the root section.

What part doesn't work?

You get errors flashing or it works fine but doesn't boot off the card or what?

How do you boot from the SDcard? I followed all of the instructions, bought the recommended Sandisk microSD, bought a USB microSD card reader, tried various images and image writing applications. It seems to write the image correctly and everything, but when I put the sdcard in the nook and boot it up, it just boots normally. What am I missing?

If you can see files on it when it's plugged into the computer, the card should be good.

See post #111 above for the solution.

Yep, it's a tablet. Had no idea there was a difference. Doesn't look like the nook tablet has much in the way of development. Time to sell it.

Surprised noob having problems with nook color. (1.4.3)

I have followed the guides. Which are awesome by the way. But I cannot get the nook to boot to the SD card? I have a HP touch pad running ICS 4.0 and I was hoping I could turn the nook color into a smaller version of that for my sons 3rd birthday. I want to just run ICS I'm not interested at all using stock B&N UI. Can this be done? I have one week until his bday and I am sooooo lost right now please help.

I just read the other day that with cheap tablets now, there's no reason to pick up a reader and mod it into a tablet. I like my Nexus 7 tablet.

Have you checked post #111 above to make sure you have the Nook Color and not the tablet?

FWIW, the NC is a bit too underpowered to run ICS. JB might be do-able, but there's no stable JB builds yet. If you do indeed have a NC, your best bet would be Mirage or CM7 roms.

By post #111, I meant to make sure it wasn't a Nook Tablet.

If you can see files on the sdcard and copy files to it after flashing, it's probably good.

The presence of a small pin-size hole (microphone) on the top, opposite of the headphone jack, means you're wasting your time b/c it's the wrong device. <-- that's the point I wanted you to check.

Ok I have a question pertaining to upgrading cwm 1.0.10 to 3.201 on a boot loader? I'm running das u-boot and it has menus that come up to boot into emmc or sd or recovery. The recovery is old cwm, do you know how to update and still have the boot-up menu's?

This guide is for a bootable sdcard, not a bootable rom.

You need to check xda for an updated u-boot menu.

Sorry, I won't be much help. My experience is with replacing the stock rom, not booting a rom from the sdcard.

If you're on the Nook Color (encore), why are you trying to flash acclaim? You need encore files.

Also, your NC doesn't have a lot of horsepower. You'd be better off with cm7 instead of cm9. (I think your full of bugs file is probably pretty old too.)

Looks like you're following this guide (Nook Tablet): [DEV] [ROM] CM9 for Nook Tablet Alpha 0.06 - xda-developers

See if you have a microphone hole on the top of your Nook, opposite side from the headphone jack. If you have a mic, you have the Nook Tablet, which won't work with my guide or files (which only work with the Nook Color).

If you don't have the microphone hole, you can use my guide and sdcard, but you need a different file to flash.

Default Screwed up -- Need help!

Okay, so I'm not as clever as I thought I was.

I've had my Nook Color for about 6 months. I bought it with the idea that eventually I would try the dual boot from SD card. I've been enjoying the stock Nook, but was a little annoyed that I couldn't get some of the same apps free that I have on my Samsung Galaxy (player only).

I had some time this week so I went looking at posts,and thought the above was the way to do it. Now I'm not a tech person -- I'm an admin at a university and I work with a lot of tech people, so I apparently know just enough to be dangerous.

I had a SanDisk 4GB microdisk, and from that I followed the instructions above to download the win32 and winrar, and the 4gb_twrp_2.1.1.rar and installed the following (I’ve reformatted the SD now, but took a picture of the file list:
cm-7-20120939-NIGHTLY-encore.zip
gapps-gb-2011-0828-signed.zip
mlo
u-boot.bin
uImage
uRamdisk
pulse
Android
DCIM
Pictures
Clockworkmod
.android_secure
LOST.DIR
At first I thought I was successful. I had some trouble figuring out touch screen, but eventually seemed to hit the right buttons, install and reboot. CM7 came up and I was happy for a short time. Then I realized I couldn’t get around without hitting “n” every time (where’s the back button), I had to manually attach the wireless each time, and an android error started popping up:
<Sorry! The process android.process.media has stopped unexpectedly. Please try again [Force close]>
No problem I thought, I’ll just take the card out, bring it back as the “Nook” and try again later with some help.

Only problem is when I took it out and started up again, I’m still in CM7. I’ve lost my Nook install completely.

I really just wanted to be able to dual boot – I want to bring it up as a Nook 1.4.1 or 1.4.2 or 1.4.3 (are there problems with 1.4.3?)

I like the magazine feature for weekly EW but want best of both worlds for some of the apps.

Have I messed up permanently? Any help/link/specific steps would be Very Much appreciated!

Goal 1 -- get back my Nook install (to whatever is recommended -- 1.4.1 or 1.4.2 or 1.4.3 does not matter to me)

Eventually I'll try again -- more carefully -- to go the dual boot route (or I'll just save up for an android player)

Nightly builds are always iffy. They aren't well tested.

Mirage is a good rom: [ROM][CM7.2-RC1] MiRaGe - KANG build of CyanogenMod Available Now !! It's a IC9 themed/tweaked version of CM7. CM9 is a bit too much rom for the under-powered NC.

Did you check out the sticky at the top of the page? There's a back to stock section there to get you back to stock. Nook Color rooting and rom guide... READ ME FIRST!

Roms on the sdcard will eventually fail. You might get a year out of one, more or less depending on how much you use it.

Hi Colchiro,

I clicked the link you sent me regarding rooting the nook color 1.4.3. Luckily I do not have the tablet, but the nook color. I don't exactly understand where else to go on the link you sent me. Sorry, I'm not good at technology.

Thanks,
Jeanette

If you're not good at technology, I bet you know someone who is (work, neighbor kid). Who fixes your computer when you screw it up?

What do you hope to do?

  • Replace the stock rom on your NC with a CM7, giving you a 7" tablet that can also read books, or
  • Root your NC, keeping the stock B&N software and reader, but allow installing apps from Google Play Store, giving you a reader that can also do other things?


In other words, do you read a lot of books on your NC?

colchiro, I tried to use your method, but I couldn't figure out how to do it on a Mac. I'm a noob when it comes to this stuff. I used this video. Root Nook Color 1.4.1/1.4.2 (MAC) - YouTube

Everything went as planned, but I continue to get a message saying: the process android.process.media has stopped unexpectedly. this force closes whatever I'm trying to do. (sometimes this will happen during the boot up or right after, but mainly when I try to access something using the internet...)

I tried to do the following which helped some people.
settings>storage used>media storage>clear data
no luck there. should I try to start over, or do you have any ideas?

I don't even know how to start over...

thanks, dan

Sounds like you forgot to clear one of the caches or you installed incompatible files.

What was the exact name of the rom and Google apps you installed?

When you install via a video, it could be quite old.

To clear the caches:

You need to boot into recovery, and format cache and (under advanced) clear Dalvik cache.

Assuming you can get into Rom Manager:

Open Rom Manager.

If you've never used recovery before, Tap the top option to "Flash CWM Recovery". Scroll down about two screens and choose "Nook Color". You should get a "Superuser Request"... tap "Allow", followed by "Success".

Now tap "boot into recovery".

  1. (To use recovery, up/down volume buttons are used to navigate up and down, press the power button to go back, and press the "n" button to do the highlighted task. Only briefly press the buttons since it's easy to skip a step by holding down a button too long.)
  2. Press up or down volume button until "mounts and storage" is highlighted, press "n" button.
  3. use up/down to highlight "format /cache", press "n"
  4. highlight "yes - format", press "n" (always watch for errors)
  5. Press power button to return to the main menu.
  6. highlight the "advanced" menu, press "n"
  7. highlight "clear Dalvik cache", press "n"
  8. highlight "yes -format", press "n"
  9. press power button to go back until "reboot" is visible. Select "reboot system now", press "n".
Hopefully that works for you. I had to do it from memory.


If that doesn't work, it's time to start over by copying a new rom and gApps (the latest) to you sdcard and install from recovery. You could download via Rom Manager and update via step 2 here: [Guide] How to install CM7 on your Nook Color

There are apps to add "reboot to recovery" on your desktop, otherwise rom manager has the option to boot into recovery. I like Reboot Widget.

the fix for a lot of market issues is to go into settings... applications and find Google Play Store and uninstall update, clear the cache and clear data.

Glad you figured it out.

I can't seem to figure this out. I have followed the instructions exactly. I've burned the image file to the SD card and inserted into the Nook. I powered the Nook off and turned it back on, but nothing happened. It just booted up like normal.

It is running v. 1.4.2. It is definitely a Nook Color

Thanks!

After creating the sdcard, were you able to see 4 files in it?

Are you able to copy a file to it (any file)? You'd need your rom and gApps to it to be of any use.

Based on what?

I don't know that you can flash the card from a stock NC. (Chicken and egg... can't get the chicken w/o the egg first. Can't get the egg w/o a chicken first.)

Do it from a USB adapter in your computer. That's known to work.

Sorry I don't. The links to files that were on dropbox were good until my hard drive crashed and drop box assumed I deleted them and deleted the online versions. Not a good policy.

All you can do is find them on XDA in General or DEV: http://forum.xda-developers.com/forumdisplay.php?f=860

I recently had to reverse the rooting of my Nook Color back to stock because it became unstable ( I think I got a virus from an email I opened up from Craigslist). I am trying to create a dual boot SD card. I have downloaded Clockwork Mod Recovery file and unzipped it. I have attempted to burn the img file to a 32gb SD card usuing win32diskimager. I then have attempted to copy my boot.zip file to the card. When I attempt to do this the computer asks me if i want to format the card. what do I do?

After flashing the img file to your sdcard, you should be able to see at least 4 files on it.

If you don't, you did something wrong or you need to safely remove and reinsert your card.

All the links to the files are not available. They just send me to a error 404 page and doesn't allow me to download the proper files.
