[Q] Is there a way of installing a ROM to SD without the need to use the EMMC

Hey all,

I managed to brick my Nook HD+ a few month ago (see previous threads). The EMMC partitions are broken and I cant access them.
So, I noticed a few ROMS that work of a SD Card. The only problem is, the installation seems to need to store the ROM on the internal EMMC in order to install it.

Is there a way round this?

Cheers

What OS are you running? I had no issues once I did step 7 myself on Windows. On Linux it really depends on the distro and I don't use a Mac so not sure.

Just a quick note.
Be sure to use v1.0.31 of adb or greater, or it will not see your device.
Also, in my bootimg_tools_ovation are the files necessary to get adb working in linux.
(the "hidden" .android folder gets copied to home, and the rules file to /etc/udev).

Someone really should make a live linux usb/flash image with working adb for the nook. (Just boot from usb key and have working adb)
Wouldn't be that difficult.
