[Q] Newbie trying to jump from stock to CM11
Hi everyone !
First, thanks for all the developers and the other contributors for such a great piece of software.
I have a Nook HD+ that I have given to my step-daughter as an early Xmas gift (back in October). It was on offer on Ebay for $120 and I could not resist the price for an HD tablet with a 9" display. Much better cost benefit than an iPad Mini ($329 at the time) non HD display.
There is two main reasons for installing CM11:
a) Miracast (she has a miracast-enabled LG tv)
b) performance improvement (over stock Nook)
From what I had gathered so fat, Jelly Bean prior to 4.3 and CM prior to CM11 (CM 10.1 and 10.2) did not have MIRACAST support. That is one of the reasons I had hold out so far.
Just to make sure before I read the instructions and jump in:
- all the functionalities (wifi, sleep, auto brightness, etc) work on CM 11 ?
- after I made the backup and installed CM11, I can revert back to original configuration without losing my setup/profiles/apps ?
- what are the best SIMPLE tools to implement backup/install/restore using a Macbook ?
Thanks again for all the help !
