UNOFFICIAL CyanogenMod 12.0 for NookHD/HD+ (Ovation/Hummingbird)

*** USE AT YOUR OWN RISK! WHILE I TRY MY BEST TO PROVIDE WORKING KERNELS/ROMS, I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE IF THIS SOFTWARE OR ANYTHING I'VE WORKED ON SUDDENLY FRIES YOUR DEVICE. ***


CHECK KNOWN ISSUES BEFORE FLASHING. MAY NOT BE GOOD ENOUGH FOR DAILY USE.

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 2.8.3.0 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:
http://d-h.st/users/dhacker29/?fld_id=27426#files
(Choose newest gapps-lp-* file and use the "Download Now" button)

NOTES:
  • 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.

  • [01/04] New Audio HAL which is Android L compatible and uses mixer_paths.xml file (some functionality was probably lost during this transition, like BT SCO. But, A2DP should still work fine -- needs testing)

I need to push the updated sources for building Ovation to the CyanogenMod cm-12.0 branches first. And then I'll grab the hummingbird device git and make the needed updates there and have a tester validate the changes. Maybe a week(?) as I'm also very busy with work. :/
