Default [ETC] Flashable File to Create Bootable SDCard for Nook Tablet


I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE IF YOU DAMAGED YOUR SDCARD OR NOOK TABLET

WHA
T IS THIS?
It's a flashable file (a file that you can install from recovery) that will create a bootable SDCard for your Nook Tablet.
What it does is creates 4 partitions on your SDCard.
100MB for partition 1 (BOOT)
400MB for partition 2 (SYSTEM1)
Size for partition 3 (DATA1) and partition 4 (SDCARD) vary.
It'll also copy over boot files to your SDCard, making the SDCard bootable on your Nook Tablet.

INSTRUCTIONS:
This will only work with the provided CWM 6.0.2.9 because it contains fdisk with advanced options.
Format your SDCard with SDFormatter if you are on Windows and OSX. Linux? GParted.
Copy CWM 6.0.2.9 recovery (renamed the internal recovery img to recovery.img) to your SDCard.
Copy flashable_create_bootable_sdcard.zip to your internal storage.

if [ Stock_Rom ]; then
# If you are still on Stock Rom, you need to be rooted and have terminal installed.
# Open up terminal.
# Backup stock recovery
su
dd if=/dev/block/mmcblk0p3 of=/sdcard/stock_recovery.img
# Store the stock_recovery.img on your computer for future need.
# Install CWM 6.0.2.9 recovery
dd if=/sdcard/recovery.img of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p3
# Boot to recovery. Power up device by holding Power + Home keys.
else
# If you already have previous CWM version of recovery installed, just flash the new one.
reboot recovery
fi

Insert formatted SDCard.
Make sure the USB cable is not plugged into your computer.
1) Install zip from sdcard
- choose zip from internal sdcard
- flashable_create_bootable_sdcard.zip

Ignored the "can't unmount /dev/block/mmcblk1p1".
Be patient with the loading bar. It's not frozen, just wait.
The larger the data1 size, the longer the process take.
Power off device and turn it on again.
If successful, it will boot into Cyanoboot.
Then you can install *SDC Rom.

The default data1 (Partition 3) size is 600MB in flashable_create_bootable_sdcard.zip.
My recommendation.
600MB is for 2GB SDCard
1000MB is for 4GB SDCard
2000MB is for 8GB SDCard
3000MB is for 16GB-64GB SDCard

To make data1 size larger, just rename the file 'createsd_*.sh' to 'createsd.sh' inside flashable_create_bootable_sdcard.zip.
createsd_600MB.sh
createsd_1000MB.sh
createsd_2000MB.sh
createsd_3000MB.sh

*added 4000MB and 5000MB scripts. Rename createsd_X000MB.sh.txt to createsd.sh.

Do test and tell. I've only tested on 2GB, 4GB, and 32GB sdcard.

There should be a guide on how to flash ROMs to SD somewhere in the forum...it was intended for making a triple boot Nook...although the scripts may not work for CM10/10.1 as they were for CM7/9

If you find it (back 1-2 pages) you could use it, if I find it I'll link you...

If you indeed have a Nook HDplus, then you are posting in the wrong forum. Try posting in a HD+ forum and perhaps someone might be willing to help, in spite of your rather abrasive attitude.
