Default [RECOVERY] Making an updated bootable ClockworkMod SD

Edit edit edit edit: I sold my Nook Color in the summer of 2012. If there is anything you need me to edit into this top post I am happy to. Thanks!

Edit edit edit: I still own a Nook Color but I will not be actively editing this thread anymore. Here is the gist of it: You take any bootable Clockwork SD card, paste over the uRecImg and uImage files as needed for newer versions of CWM, and now you have an updated card. I was advised to warn you guys that the 3.0.x.x versions of CWM are not compatible with newer NC devices that have different partition tables. I was also asked to post the following:

You really only need the 1gb image ... no matter what the size of your card is. A smaller image will burn faster, and when you're done with the guide you can reformat the card anyway.
But I do want to point I disagree with the statement that "you really only need the 1GB image"... I use my CWM SD to make nandroid backups before major changes, so it makes a difference to have the full size of your SD available.

---- end of edit. Happy hacking!

I just wanted to report that I was able to take files from two different threads and use them to create a bootable SD card with ClockworkMod 3.0.1.0 and now 3.0.2.8. The advantage of this version is that it works for both ext3 and ext4 ROMs. I successfully flashed an ext4 version of Honeycomb and then restored back to my nandroid backup of auto-nooted Eclair.

EDIT: Direct links to 3.0.2.8 bootable images here: http://mrm3.net/nook-color-updated-c...y-bootable-sd/
Source of those files is this post: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...3&postcount=34

NEW INSTRUCTIONS
1) Obtain the image for your SD card size here, containing any version of CWM:
(This link is now broken.)
http://legacyschool.us.to/nookdev/clockwork/0.7/
(source: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=922870)

2) Obtain the correct uImage and uRamdisk files for CWM 3.0.2.8. The way I did this was to flash CWM 3.0.2.8 from ROM Manager and then mount my /boot partition to copy out the files uRecImg and uRecRam. But for the benefit of those of you here who can't flash CWM successfully, I've attached the files here.

3) Burn the SD card as instructed. Leave the SD mounted in your computer afterwards.

4) Rename your copy of the new uRecImg to uImage and replace the uImage file on the SD.
Rename your copy of the new uRecRam to uRamdisk and replace the uRamdisk file on SD.

5) Eject the SD from your computer, pop it into your Nook Color, reboot and verify that you indeed manage to boot into the new desired version of ClockworkMod. Upon completion I had a bootable 3.0.2.8 SD card.

OLD INSTRUCTIONS BELOW
I haven't seen anyone here post an SD image for 3.0.1.0, so here is what I did instead:
1) Obtain the image for your SD card size here, containing CWM 3.0.0.5 at time of writing:
http://legacyschool.us.to/nookdev/clockwork/0.7/
(source: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=922870)

2) Also get the newer version of ClockwordMod in .zip format:
3.0.1.0 is here: http://muffinworld.net/android/nookc...mr_3.0.1.0.zip
(source: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=971197)

3) Burn the SD card as instructed. Leave the SD mounted in your computer afterwards.

4) Unzip the files uRecImg and uRecRam from the newer CWR zip.
Rename uRecImg to uImage and replace the uImage file on the SD.
Rename uRecRam to uRamdisk and replace the uRamdisk file on SD.

5) Eject the SD from your computer, pop it into your Nook Color, reboot and verify that you indeed manage to boot into the new desired version of ClockworkMod.

Enjoy!

EDIT: Post #4 below contains IMG files created using this method for ClockworkMod 3.0.1.0. Thanks to DizzyDen.

Nice post and great info. I just did this as a test run last night myself and was going to make a thread explaining what to do but you have now saved me the time in doing that.

I can say this works great as I have flashed and restored backups between ext4 and ext3 builds. I went from Nook OS, to HC, back to Nook, over to CM&, back to Nook all wiht no issues.

Default Updated SD IMG files

NOTE: 3.0.2.8 images in POST 34 of this thread... ALL credit still goes to OP

All credit goes to OP... all I did is updated the original SD *.0.7.img files with OP's results....

I renamed them to *.3.0.1.0.img to distinguish which version of CWR image and ramdisk files are being utilized. I also compressed to rar to distinguish these are not CWR flashable zip files.

NOTE: 4 gig fixed 03/18/11... My apologies for my initial mistake... thank you for those who caught it and reported.

If anyone has or is willing to flash the most current CWR ( 3.0.1.3) to there device and then pull the uRecImg and uRecRam files and post them would be great. Then we can update our current 3.0.1.0 sdcards to 3.0.1.3.

I'm assuming you are seeing 3.0.0.5 as the version on the internal mem and not a bootbale sdcard. If it is from the internal mem then yes you are a bit behind on the most current version of CWR. and should get updated to the most current version. To get more current you will need to check this thread out first to get to 3.0.1.0. from there you should be able to use Rom Manager to update to 3.0.1.3.
