hi,
i'm stuck with updating my nook hd+ to kitkat.
i seem to have lost the backup rom (i think i formatted the micro-sd that it was on by mistake).
i do not seem to be able to update to any rom as i get an error saying...
E: Can't open / external_sd/cm-11-20140606-nightly-ovation (1).zip
(bad)
installation aborted
it says this with all the roms i tried.
i did get the same problem with my S3 until i found the fusion rom, which worked ok.

ps i am on recovery v6.0.4.5

thanks in advance.

Try downloading the ROM zip directly to the nook rather than your PC. Sometimes the PC antivirus will corrupt the zip.

You did not say earlier you could only boot to recovery. You need to go to my HD/HD+ CWM thread linked in my signature and make a new CWM bootable SD per item 1a and flash the plain stock ROM per item 6. That will get you back to like it came out of the box and you can start over.

The file that has the word BOOTFILES in the name and is for your device (HD or HD+).
