  • Before you begin:
    • To update to 1.2 you must do a complete wipe.
    • You must update to 1.2 to use ManualNooter Instructions Here.
    1. You must already have a registered NOOKcolor
    2. You must have a Google Account, for Gmail, Market, Etc. IF you used a Gmail account for B&N Registration you should use that one for this process.
    3. CWM Bootable from SD Card: - You should always use the Latest CWM Version
      • OR emmc CWM Recovery Installed
    4. You must have enough intelligence to follow instructions.
  • 1.3 Must do these instructions first with 4.5.18 then with 4.6.16.
  • Let's get started:
    • If you're running a previous MN you do not need to do a complete wipe.
    1. Download ManualNooter from here: - 1.3 Only
    2. Copy onto your flashable CWM SD card using Windows Explorer, OS X Finder, etc.
      • See step 3 above for how to make a flashable CWM card.
      • DO NOT extract the zip file. It MUST be left as-is.
      • DO NOT copy the zip file into a folder. Leave it at the top directory of your card
    3. Unplug your NOOKcolor from computer. (If Plugged in.)
    4. Turn off your NookColor (If turned on.)
    5. Insert Flashable CWM SDcard with ManulNooter into your NOOKcolor.
    6. Plug the USB cable into your computer and your NOOKcolor. (This will boot up the NOOKcolor.)
      • If using Flashable CWM SDCard this should boot you into recovery.
      • If using eMMC CWM Recovery instead of SD CWM Recovery, boot to recovery.
    7. When CWM boots select the update using your Volume Keys and n button:
      • - install zip from sdcard (Volume up 4 times, then n)
      • - choose zip from sdcard (Volume down 1 time, then n)
      • - (Hit volume up until you get to it, then n)
        • 1.3 needs to run 4.5.18 before 4.6.16
      • - Confirm that you really want to run the update.
        • Selecting this indicates that you take responsibility for your own actions.
    8. Wait patiently and follow onscreen directions.
      • If you get "Install Failed" after rebooting out of CWM this can be normal. Just reboot again.
    9. After reboot and unlocking your device select Zeam Launcher.
    10. Run Fix Permissions from Rom Manager - 1.3 Only after running 4.6.16
    11. Open up Market and Accept Terms and Service/Sign In.
      • If you get a full application list, you're done!
      • You may not have to Accept Terms and Service or Sign In if you're updating from a previous MN version.
      • If you made it this far your nook should be successfully Rooted.
    12. Enable Non-Market Installs by running the NookColor Tools App.
      • If you want to revert your card to a "usable" state.
    13. Go to Settings > Device Info > SdCard > UnMount > Format
    14. This will wipe your SDCard of all MN/CWM Flashable abilities. If you use this you will have to reflash the SDCard for future MN releases.

  • Complete Wipe:
