Default [Q] KitKat 4.4

Hey, so I'll start off by saying everything works fantastic with the CWM11.0 and KitKat ROM I installed! Everything is smooth and amazing! The only problem is the location services being buggy and not working with a few apps, but a thread about that has already been made and I'll just monitor that for any solutions. My question is since there's no emmc version of KitKat yet for the Nook HD: for future official KitKat updates, how would we install them? I'm assuming you can't auto-update because it's running from the EXT. SD card. Anyone have any ideas how the updates would be installed?

And do I just copy it to the sd card or emmc and install it using CWM on start up?

You should be able I copy it to either. I would recommend external card so it doesn't get accidentally erased. You will need a new recovery either CWM or TWRP that is compatible with Kit Kat. I am not sure of the versions I have the HD plus.

Alright, I think I have the latest version of cwm. Can I just install it then or do I need to clear the external card's kitkat OS first? And I can remove the SD card before rebooting and the KitKat OS will run without the card, right? One more thing: will it wipe my device if I install it on the emmc, and will I still need to install the GAPPS add on once again? Sorry for the noob questions \:

Yes those directions are better than anything I could write up. If you have specific questions just ask.
