Default [Q] New-ish User with a question.

Okay. Hi! My first question on here.

I have recently installed CM 10.1 to my Nook Colors' eMMc. When I check >Settings>Storage it says internal memory is 4GB and my external SD is only 1GB.

I have a 4GB SD inserted.

Is this normal?

Can I boot without an SD inserted?

**UPDATE**
I can boot without an SD inserted but it still says I have 4GB+ of memory even though the SD card is not inserted.

Again, is this normal??

Thanks!!

PS This is the first time I have installed to eMMc. Every other time has been SD Card based.

Those /settings/storage have nothing to do with your external SD. Those are telling you how much room you have for apps (4GB) and how much room for media files (1GB), all of which is on internal memory.

Also I have been trying to load cm10.2 but it isn't working. The screen goes black and the backlight stays on when I do manual.

When I try going thru cmupdater it boots to recovery and tries to run it but then quickly boots back into current rom.

Any ideas?

Could be a bad download. Try redownloading. And before manually flashing the zip, format /system and factory reset with CWM.

No luck after manual write and fresh download. 10.2 just doesn't want to install. I keep getting the black screen with backlights on. I may try 11.

Yes after formatting and clearing cache it flashed the blue man very very quickly and went back to bootloader. Then started loading again and went back to bootloader. Finally it started loading again and I got the black screen with backlights.

Do I need to place the files on internal storage instead of external SD?

Here is another picture of the install process for CM 11 it obviously isn't working and I don't know what to do from this point.

Should I be placing these zip files on SDcard 0?
