I can't boot CM7 final from SD without tether as many others. I am running internal with stock recovery. I have found a CWM boot SD image that boots every time without tether.
Four different SD cards all boot without tether (2 4g c4, 1 16g c6, 1 32g c10).
Here is a link to the image. http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...7#post21275927 It would be nice if someone else with the tether problem could attempt this. Thanks for looking.
Patriot Memory 16GB Class 4 (#1)
Sandisk 8GB Class 4 (#2)
Downloaded fresh copy of SD_ROOT_NT16gbV4_6.
A. Followed Albert's instructions for imaging the SD Cards (using the NT as SD Host via USB)
B.Also tried same tests using a PC Card Reader
Card #1 needs the USB tether for the NT to boot into CWM in both A & B
Card #2 does NOT need the USB tether to boot into CWM in both A & B
These results are consistent with my other tests involving SD cards imaged with CM7 and other flavors of CWM. I get consistent, reproducible results. My Patriot card won't boot and my Sandisk always will when my NT is untethered.
