Below you will find Internal release of our Nook tablet CM7. This has been rebuilt from the most recent CM7 stable source. I'll update the 2nd posts with release information asap.
Please feel free to base your rom on ours, I believe it is now tested well enough and is sufficiently stable to use.
The Source for the CM7 android device folder, the kernel and meghd00ts Improved recovery can be found here Here

INTERNAL VERSION 8GB & 16GB COMPATIBLE
For the internal version you need have access to CWM either internally installed as your recovery or from an SD card. I'm not going to reinvent the wheel telling people how to do that. Just have a look through the development thread and you'll se numerous threads showing you how to do this.
This version has the ability to reboot to recovery added to the reboot option in the power menu. It does not however come with a recovery image, this was already released by lavero.burgos and can be downloaded from http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1640958
PLEASE BACK EVERYTHING UP BEFORE YOUR BEGIN!!!!
Once you have CWM on screen with the downloaded update zip archive on your sd card, Follow these simple steps
1. Goto install zip from sdcard
2. Choose zip from sdcard ( if CWM hasn't recognized your SD card you need to eject it and re insert it once or twice, sometimes you need to go to mounts and unmount SD, pop it out and back in then select mount sd)
3. choose the CM7-TEAM-B-BETA1-signed.zip
4. scroll down and select Yes - Install CM7-TEAM-B-BETA1-signed.zip
5. sit back for a couple of minutes while the installation is carried out
Thatís CM7 installed, next you need to prepare the rest of the device
1. press your power button once
2. ***OPTIONAL*** scroll down and select wipe data / factory reset, this is optional but if you are coming from a different OS it is recommended, if you don't it can sometimes causes force closes and various other issues.
3. you're ready to roll! scroll up and select reboot system, initial boot can take a while and does pause for a short while on the black screen between flash page and CM7 Animation, enjoy CM7 For Nook Tablet!
if you were already running a version of CM7 it is possible you may be able to skip the wipe data bit and just select wipe cache instead but it's best if you can wipe data and know that you have a clean install without any bugs remaining from a previous install. By all means try just clear cache and see how you go, if you seems to have lots of bugs we recommend doing a clear data and trying again.
SD VERSION IMAGE ***UPDATE NOT YET AVAILABLE this is the Alpha final version***
I've done the SD version a little different this time, it's as a 4gb SD image (the last partition is used as SDcard in CM7 so you can resize this partition to fill up your whole card if your card is bigger than 4gb). The image can be burn using windows Image writer or dd command in linux / OSX
The window software is available HERE
To write the image on linux / osx do the following
WITHOUT your sd in the machine go to a terminal window and type
Notice the drives that are showing they will be something like dev/sda. Now insert your SD and give it a moment to recognise it. Once again terminal type
and you should have an extra device such as /dev/sdc showing which is your sdcard (it may say dev/sdc1 or something but you aren't interested in the number)
Once you have the SD device id use following code exchanging sdc for your device id
dd if=/location/of/SDfile.img of=/dev/sdc
Then sit back and wait, it will appear to be doing nothing and will take a long time but once done the command will complete and you have a nice new SD version of CM7 to run
Power off the nook, insert the sd and then power it on to enjoy your new CM7. If it done'st boot try completely powering of and ten connect power cable and wait for it to turn on and hopefully boot form SD. The first boot WILL take a few minutes. Consecutive boots will be faster
