I know I'm not very common around the Nook forums, but I happen to own a NookHD+ (Ovation) (thanks to verygreen) and thought I'd take some time to update the Android build for Lollipop support. I've installed this build on my own device, and I'm quite pleased with it as an *ALPHA* release.
This may not be good enough for your parent's Nook HD/HD+ or for a novice Android user which is uncomfortable with bugs or future issues.
NOTE: CM12 is not a finished product and it will continue to get better over time. See KNOWN ISSUES section for more information.
Updated EMMC TWRP 126.96.36.199 builds for Ovation/Hummingbird
[Coming up with install instructions and a flashable .zip to update the emmc recovery. For now, you *should* be able to install CM12 w/ your current recovery -- MAKE A BACKUP FIRST]
Download Google Apps for Android 5.0:
(Choose newest gapps-lp-* file and use the "Download Now" button)
- First boot after a clean wipe will take a LONG time. Be patient. (Like 7-8 minutes on boot animation)
- If updating from Kitkat, you may need to move the /data/misc/wifi directory out of the way if you have any wifi connection issues. In Lollipop, the Nook's are setup for using AOSP standard wpa_supplicant as opposed to TI's modified wpa_supplicant, and there may be some Kitkat settings which cause issues.
