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.

as a quick way, you can pull the battery connector from the back of the unit. I demonstrated this on XDATV Nook Tablet unboxing.

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

It works for me much of the time.

Lets try to fix that:
Boot cwm
1st do this:
dd if=/dev/block/mmcblk0p2 of=/sdcard/mmcblk0p2
So you backup your p2 partition.
Now flash mine, after you copy onto sdcard
dd if=/sdcard/mmcblk0p1.img of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p1
dd if=/sdcard/mmcblk0p2.img of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p2
Reason i tell you to backup yours is because mine has cyanoboot.
When you want to go back to yours reverse the flashing.
Here is the download link:

Please report if boot2sd is fixed after this.
Thanks

STRICTLY FOR 16GB NOOK TABLETS
