Hi again everyone,

I've prepped an IMG file that you can dualboot Phiremod v6.1 and HC v4 2nd Edition off one SDcard.

1-The image file is 3.7gb. So you will need a 4gb SDcard or larger.

2-Both roms share the same SDcard partition. So on a 4gb card, the available space is limited to 1.8gb.

3-If you use an 8gb SDcard. To get use of the remaining storage on your SDcard. Just burn the image and then use EASUS Partition Manager to extend the SDcard partition. (Which is the 7th partition on the card)

4-I've udpated the Phiremod v6.1 with:
-The latest OC Kernel by Dalingrin 041811C
-Alsa update for smoother video playback
-Honeycomb Softkey Icons by XDA user Bawb3


I've done this mainly just for fun and to see if it would work and thought I'd share it with everyone if you wanna give it a go. Thanks to all the devs for all their hard work in getting these great ROMs for our Nook Color.

Follow directions from Nookdevs.com to burn the image to your SDcard.

Burning a bootable SD card

Once you burn the image to your SDcard. Power off your nook and place the SDcard in your nook.

-To boot into Phiremod Nook v6.1 just power on your nook with the sdcard in and leave it alone.
-To boot into HCv4 2nd Edition, hold the HOME(n) button while powering on. Continue holding the HOME(n) button until you see the "Android..._" screen.

Take it or leave it, just hope you enjoy it.

Edit 5/23: Updated Img with Phiremod 6.2 and Madcat's Honeycomb Hybrid-RC1

Reason for creating a new image and not just a flashable update is because the HC Hybrid /system was too large to fit on the original Dualboot img. So I prepped a new one for that reason as well as making the image smaller so it will definitely fit on a 4gb uSDcard.

What's included in this new image:

1- A 3.4gb Img file that should fit on any 4gb uSDcard or larger

2- J4mm3r's u-boot menu! (Read here for more info on how to use it)

3- Latest Phiremod 6.2 with Dalingrins 4/13a OC and Alsa update

4- Latest Divine_Madcat's Honeycomb Hybrid RC1

5- Honeycomb Hybrid RC1 has my sdcard mount workaround. I also included a file manager.

6- Read here for more info on the sdcard mount workaround.

7- Follow the steps above to burn the image to your uSDcard

8- Enjoy!

Keep in mind that the Honeycomb Hybrid RC1 is a work in progress so there are known issues. I suggest you read the OP in this thread here to see what's working and what isn't.

Update 5/31-Phiremod Nook 6.3 Dualboot SD Flashable Update:
This will only format /system. Data stays intact.
1-If you're still using the original Dualboot-SD img. Follow directions below from 5/5 update on how to install latest Phiremod to your Dualboot-SDrom.
2-If you're using latest Dualboot-SD v0.2 with j4mm3r's boot menu. Choose to boot into SD-->Recovery and flash from there.

Update 6/22-Phiremod Nook v7-Test Dualboot SD Package Update:
This will format /system and /data of your Phiremod rom. So please backup all your apps!
Well I went ahead and made it easier for everyone. So I packaged the whole Phiremod v7-Test as a CWM-SD Flashable zip. This will install phiremod-nook-v7-test, gapps, and will install the launcher-pro backup to the sdcard partition for you.

-All you have to do is download the 'phiremod-nook-v7-TEST-SD-CWM-package.zip' file, no need to extract anything
-Boot into CWM-SD and flash the package zip file
-Reboot when done
-It will prompt with 2 different options on startup, choose "Setup Wizard"
-For some reason it won't get past that, even when touching the Android guy, to get around this touch all 4 corners of the nook screen starting with:
1. top left hand corner
2. top right hand corner
3. bottom right hand corner (just above the 'change language' button)
4. bottom left hand corner (just above the 'emergency' button)
-That should get you to the main screen.
-Connect to a wireless network
-Market will not populate correctly, so go into the app drawer and choose 'Talk'
-That should give you an option to add a google account
-Once completed go back to the main screen and goto options--> preferences --> and restore the launcher pro backup
-You should now see Market on the home screen
-Don't forget to thank the devs!
-Personal thank you to "bdeville" for testing the .zips for me before I borked any more installations!

Edit 5/5: Update Phiremod to 6.2 and Honeycomb to Madcat's Honeycomb_RC1

1- I forgot to mention that with your dualboot rom SDcard. It also contains a Modded CWM that will allow you to flash updated roms from "my" thread only!

2- Place the .zips you downloaded from this thread onto your /sdcard (7th) partition.

3- To boot into the Modded CWM. When powering on your nook. Hold the "volume+/volume-" together while booting up, until it loads up CWM

4- Now select "choose zip from sdcard"

5- Choose the .zip file and confirm "yes"

6- Sit back and let it do its thing

7- You can either flash another rom or go back to the CWM main menu and choose "Reboot system now"

8- Enjoy your updated roms!

If you get a keyboard failure error on first boot. Just do a quick reboot and it should go away. Downloads from market seems very slow off an SDcard install. Might just depend on what Class it is. And remember. This is a WIP. Don't forget to thank Madcat for his work on this!



If I've helped in some way, please say thanks in one way or another!

Thanks,
Racks

AAAAAAAAAaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhh
Just when I think: "Enough of this craziness, let's just sit down and enjoy my nifty little device," along comes YET ANOTHER rom to flash!

If I do this one, though, I get back one, maybe two of my 8 GB cards. So, win/win.

Excellent work, Racks!

Please let me know if it works out for you or not. Just so I can make any needed changes if necessary.

Thanks,

Worked great for me. Had my flashing 4gb and it booted right up into HC. Great work. Didn't realize how good HC looked on here, but I'm sticking to Phiremod for now.

oops maybe I spoke too soon, the phiremod works ok, but, the honeycomb loader never gets by the screen with the android_ on it. I will reflash later without epanding the partition on the SD card to see does that make a difference.

(yeah I used an 8GB card and used easus to expand the 7th partition.)
