1. The sleep of death issue if the battery is completely drained. Has this been fixed with this rom?
2. My wifi seems to drop on and off, is there a fix?
3. What does the 10 touch driver do?
4. Does turning on usb debugging cause issues? I turned it on for Titanium backup and it caused issues connecting to my pc. The pc would connect to the device and disconnect while plugged in.

Thanks again, your instructions took about 10 minutes to install cm 10 on my tablet.

The SoD issue is fixed in this build. However be aware that the NT when asleep does not detect insertion of the USB cable and go in charging mode, so you'd have to wake it up for it to go into charging mode, then you can put it into sleep again and it will stay in charging mode.

I have not had the WiFi dropping on/off. I also have not run across the USB Debug issue, probably because I tend to use ADB Wireless for ADB Debugging and data transfer, but with ADB Wireless I do notice that the connection would get drop if the NT idle-timeouts and goes to sleep.

The 10-touch driver in the ROM enables use of the multi (greater than 2) touch capability of the NT touch-screen (see http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NTL2DBbgNaY), but to activate it you'd need to flash the multi-touch firmware for the touchscreen using the Touch FW Flasher app; however beware that the Stock ROM does not work with multi-touch so you'd have to undo again using the Touch FW Flasher app, if you ever go back to stock ROM.

rely on google backup?

FWIW, here the process I used to install CM10 internally on my 16GB Nook Tablet (i.e., on its emmc) (caveat emptor: adopt/follow it at your own risk).

  1. Using a disk partition tool (such as MiniTool Partition Wizard Home Edition) create on SD card a Primary FAT32 partition, and set the partition ID type for the partition to 0x0C FAT32 LBA and set its Active flag. Once this is done, the partition should appear as a (read/write accessible) drive under Windows. If you are going to use this card for backing up your NT, keep in mind that each backup will require at least 600MB (for a barebone stock or CM config) and size the partition accordingly.
  2. Obtain and copy to the SD card the following files:
    1. MLO, u-boot.bin, and flashing_boot.img in SD_boot.zip obtained from http://iamafanof.wordpress.com/2012/...r-nook-tablet/
    2. either one of the two recovery program image files: cwm_6012_sd.img (ClockworkMod Recovery (aka CWM)) in CM9-10_CWM_v6.0.1.2_8-16gb_tools_sdcard.zip, or twrp_2220_sd.img (TeamWin Recovery Project (aka TWRP)) in CM9-10_TWRP_v2.2.2.0_8-16gb_tools_sdcard.zip from http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1640958, rename it to recovery.img. If you want to try out (or use) both, name your alternate choice altboot.img.
    3. the file cm-10-yyyymmdd-UNOFFICIAL-acclaim.zip from http://iamafanof.wordpress.com/2012/...let-uploading/
    4. the file gapps-jb-20121011-signed.zip from http://goo.im/gapps/gapps-jb-20121011-signed.zip
  3. Put the SD card into the NT, and boot from its power off by inserting a powered USB cable. Press and hold the N button as soon as CyanoBoot comes up to get the boot menu to display.
  4. Select either SDC Recovery (or Alternate Boot depending on which recovery tool you want to use).
  5. Select Backup to backup your current NT config (/boot, /recovery, /system, and /data). Before proceeding to next step, see note (ii) near the end of this post.
  6. Select Wipe data & factory reset.
  7. Select install zip from SD card and install cm-10 zip file.
  8. Select install zip from SD card and install gapps zip file.
  9. Select power of and remove SD card from NT and power NT on again using the power button (alternatively you can just remove SD card and select reboot).

Once the NT boots up, set up the wifi connectivity and your google account info. If you had previously used Google backup service your apps will be auto-downloaded (but not their settings will not be auto-restored)


A few additional points worth noting:
  1. Installing CM10 ROM and gapps will override your NT's BN-provided boot, recovery, ROM, and Apps, so make sure that you backup all this stuff using backup process in step #5 above, safekeep the backup data on your PC/Laptop and better yet archive it on CD/DVD. Your media files in the NT media partition BN allocates for user should be intact.
  2. To play it safe you should do the above in 2 phases: steps 1 through 5, then exit recovery and remove and mount SD card on PC to verify that backup data got newly created; then insert SD card and continue steps 6 through 9.
  3. CWM and TWRP use different backup archive formats, so keep this in mind if you decide to switch. Furthermore, CWM has changed its archive format going from release 5.x to 6.x, so I think it would be prudent to save a copy of the recovery program together with the backup data it generated. (FWIW I prefer the tar/zip compatible backup data structure TWRP uses (which CWM 5.x had also used) over the BLOb structure which CWM 6.x use -- but YMMV).
  4. To restore from backup data, boot into SD card and select from boot menu the same recovery program that was used to create the backup data, then select the particular backup dataset (indexed by date/time) you want to reinstall on your NT.
  5. I would advise against blindly using other functions of the CWM and TWRP without looking up info and researching to understand what they really do.

My thanks to all the developers who collective work created this wonderful ROM as well as the tools and info I made use of to install it. IMHO this ROM helps make the Nook Tablet one of the best-value tablets for the money (at least at the moment).

Ok should I rely on the google backup service? Seems like something I've been disappointed with as much as google's backup & restore isn't a good bet....

There are three different types of backup:
  1. Backup of your current setup using CWM/TWRP which covers boot, recovery, ROM, your apps and their data/settings. This is typically done as a protection in the event of some bad flashing errors/mistakes.
  2. Backup done by Google Backup/Restore which covers all your downloaded apps and the data/settings of some of the apps (I recall reading somewhere that whether a given app's data/settings get backed up is an option selected by that app's developer). In my experience this has been a hit-n-miss affair, i.e., my apps don't always get auto-restored after a CM ROM upgrade. When they do get auto-restored I still have re-enter personal settings for most apps.
  3. Backup done by a Backup app such as Titanium Backup which cover the apps you specify and all their data/settings. I have found some apps restored by TB suffer fatal crashes and ultimately have to be uninstalled and re-installed.

I am trying to install cm10 for the first time on my 16gb nook tablet.

I copied all the files requited into the 1gb primary partition and started nook. The cyano boot loaded successfully. However after selecting sdc recovery, n icon appeared and the tablet shutdown instead of boot into CWM recovery. Can anyone help what might have went wrong.

Thanks in advance.

In root of sdcard (not internal 1gb, external one only) keep the recovery.img ( and even altboot.img if you like)
Then try booting, it should open.

I copied all the files over to my external sd card. After cyano boot loads I select sdc recovery, a few moments later cyano bot reloads and if I don't hit the N button it gives me an error message " booti: bad boot image magic " (hitting the N botton gives me the same options to load recoveries.

Did you rename CWM cwm_60xx_sd.img (or twrp_2220_sd.img in case you prefer TWRP) to recovery.img before copying it to your SDcard boot partition?

Unfortunately, I am having the same issue. I followed the instructions and renamed the CWM file to 'recovery.img' and got the "booti: bad boot image magic (in memory)" error message. I went back and tried it with the TWRP file, and the more recent ones for each (they begin with 'flash'). In all cases I got the "booti" error.

I'm currently searching to see if others have overcome this issue. I'll post back if I find something out, but if you have any ideas, please let us know!

Thanks!

Re: Installing CM10 Internally on Nook Tablet
The files starting with ' flash ' (have emmc in file name) are flashable recoveries, not bootable images. Take the ones with sdcard in file name, extract file, rename it to recovery or altboot.img and place in root of sdcard.
