But now if I selected the ZIP file I downloaded from the first post, CWM reported that this file is BAD, and I cannot install.

I am using CWM 5.5.0.4.

I downloaded this file several times, but the issue does not disaapear
You need a newer version of CWM 6.0.[1-3].x to install CM10.x.

If you have a SD card handy, try the method outlined at http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...&postcount=163.

Hi,

I did exactly like that. I tried to update CWM to 6.0.45 and the current CWM reported that the zip file of CWM 6.0.45 is BAD

For CM10.x you need 6.0.[1-3].x (e.g., 6.0.2.8).

6.0.4.5 and later versions are for CM11 only.

If you follow the SD-based CWM recovery method in the referenced post the CWM recovery you'd be using (to flash the new CWM, ROM, Gapps) is provided by the file recovery.img (downloaded and copied to the SD card) rather than your current 5.5.0.4 on emmc. Make sure that you boot the NT off the SD card as prescribed in step #3 (otherwise you will end up booting emmc cyanoboot and CWM).

FYI, i'm pretty sure TWRP 2.7 (official from GooManager/TWRP site) doesn't work. if you click on the console button (square with lines in it, top) it'll say "This kernel doesn't support configuring SELinux" or something like that. i tried wiping stuff and it would just do a soft reboot. i may go file a proper report to TeamWin but i have CWM on there now and i don't particularly feel like reflashing a broken recovery.

TL;DR don't use TWRP

Hello, I'm new and trying to learn so please don't be too harsh. In following the instructions I somehow overwrote the stock rom and now duel boot CM 10.1 and 11. Any clue as in what I have done wrong?

Thanks in advance.

This thread OP is for updating the NT Internal Emmc to CM11 (from CM10.x), i.e., CM11 would be installed internally. If you were still running stock ROM internally, it wold be replaced by CM11.

If/when these two partitions get merged in some future CM11 builds (as being contemplated by our NT CM developers see http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...560827&page=28) this "CM10 to CM11" update process will not be valid for those future builds with merged /data+media partition].

Below is the process that can be used to update your NT emmc from CM10.x to CM11.
  1. Download the following files to a location in your user content-media storage space on the NT:
    1. the flashable_CWM_6.0.4.5_chrmhoffmann.zip file from https://www.mediafire.com/folder/xjw...ll/Nook_Tablet which contains the CWM recovery v0.2 provided by Chris Hoffmann (in the first post of the XDA Official CM11 thread http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2560827).
    2. the zip file of CM11 ROM build of your choice from http://download.cyanogenmod.org/?device=acclaim (see http://www.cyanogenmod.org/blog/cm-1...-release-items for considerations in choosing nightlies vs. snapshot/stable builds)
    3. the zip file of the Gapps package corresponding to CM11 e.g., pa_gapps-modular-mini-4.4.2-20140301-signed.zip from http://goo.im/devs/paranoidandroid/roms/gapps-mini
  2. Boot into your current emmc recovery
  3. Select install zip and install flashable CWM recovery zip file.
  4. Reboot into the new emmc recovery (flashed in the preceding step).
  5. Select Wipe data & factory reset.
  6. Select install zip and install CM11 zip file.
  7. Select install zip and install Gapps zip file.
  8. Reboot into the new CM11.

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 their settings will not be auto-restored).

If the NT on occasion boots or reboots into a black screen (in lieu of CM boot animation), then you have encountered one of the "random boot crashes" more info and potential remedies, see http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...6&postcount=94 and http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...9#post48301259.

A few additional points worth noting:
  1. Flashing CM11 requires CWM version 6.0.4.5 or later, or TWRP version 2.6.3.0 or later. To create a flashable recovery zip file for TWRP, use an archive file manager such as 7-zip to delete and replace the recovery.img inside the flashable recovery zip file (obtained in step 1(a) above) with your choice of TWRP internal recovery image file from http://techerrata.com/browse/twrp2/acclaim (e.g., openrecovery-twrp-2.6.3.1-acclaim.img). Remember to rename the downloaded TWRP .img file to recovery.img before inserting it into the recovery zip file, and also rename the resulting new recovery zip file to some other name like flashable_TWRP_2.x.y.z.zip to avoid future mix-up.
  2. Installing CM11 ROM and Gapps will override your NT's CM10.x boot, recovery, ROM, and Apps, so make sure that you backup all this stuff using recovery backup function, for easy in reverting to CM10.x if desired. See my post at http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...7#post48612997 for more "Info and Tips for Mitigating Risks in Rooting and Flashing Custom-ROM".
  3. I would advise against using any other functions of the recovery without first carefully researching to understand what they really do.

My thanks to all the developers who collective work created the wonderful CM11 ROM for the NT as well as the tools and info I made use of to install it.
Ive been trying to update for a while now and i just couldn't figure it out until i came across your thread.and as right now i am running cm 11 and its all good so far.you made my day.

So, will pa_gapps-modular-mini-4.4.2-20140608-signed.zip work with any cm11?
