Stock 1.42 internal and cm7 on sd card. In order to boot to the sd card, I must have the power cord connected . Is there a way around this ? This is a 16 gb tablet. Thanks

At this time, the community has not figured out a way around this. Fortunately, I am one of the lucky ones that always boots from SD just fine.

Currently, there is an experiment being done to try understand this problem better. However, there seems to be a lack of participation in the project. If you would like to contribute, go here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1608683

Prepare an sdcard that you can boot into cwm.
Make sure adb shell can run onto Nook Tablet.
After you do that post here.

You might want to try this procedure: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...&postcount=679

It works for me much of the time.
