I am at my wits end with my Nook tablet. No matter what I do, the NT refuses to boot until I take the micro sdcard out. The screen remains dark no matter how long I wait. However, if I leave it plugged in it eventually starts up by itself. My ROM is cm-11-20140705-NIGHTLY-acclaim but I have had this problem since 10.2.1. Here is what I have tried:
• I tried two different 32 GB cards (formatted with Minitool Partition Manager). Both sdcards are SanDisk Class 4 or better. I tried two different 32 GB cards (formatted with Minitool Partition Manager).
• It doesn't manner what is on the card. I have tried a card that only contained flash_recovery_184.108.40.206_sdcard.zip and the NT still doesn't boot. I was able to flash that and the SD flashed recovery seems to work, but I still can't get the NT to boot as long as that card is installed.
• I have tried plugging the NT into the charger while trying to boot and I can't boot with the Power button, but if I leave it in the charger for a while it boots by itself even though the card is plugged in.
• ES file manager can "see" everything on the card when the tablet is running and all apps seem to run fine.
While this is not such a big deal, I sure would like to be able to press the power key and have the NT boot up with the card installed.
