1. Setup SDCard
Using a new SDCard (not one you have info stored on) make a new MSDOS partition table and add a 50 MB FAT32 partition as the first primary partition. Then make sure you enable to boot and lda flags.
Any SDCARD larger than 50 MB should work but I used an extra 2GB laying around. You can add other partitions to the card if you want, but it is not necessary to allocate the entire card. Any added partitions would need to be manually mounted on your Nook anyway.
I used GParted on my Ubuntu machine to do this but any formating tool should work.
2. Copy Files onto SDCard
You can grab the files I used here:
Just UnZip the files directly to the root of the boot partition you created above (make sure flashing_boot.img, u-boot.bin, and boot.img are on the root not the folder SDCARD)
3. Insert SDCARD into NT
Now, with your NT powered off, eject the SDCARD you just created from your computer and insert it into the tablet. Then just turn it on and VOLA! You should now be in CWM!
Ever since I created the "v1.4.1 minimal root" procedure, I have been looking for a technique to "side-boot" the NT. A few days ago I saw "bauwks" method, but try as I might, I could not get that to work (using 1.4.1 u-boot.bin). So, when I saw yours this morning and saw that it uses the 1.4.0 u-boot.bin, I thought I'd give it a try. Didn't work. I even used "dd" to clear 5MB of the SDcard, reestablished the desired disk geometry (255 heads, 63 sectors/track), and created a LBA/bootable partition at the beginning of the SDcard, all with "fdisk" (via busybox). Still no SDcard boot.
1. Insert the SD card into your Mac
2. Open "Disk Utility" and click on the SD card on the right
3. Click "Info" and note the disk identifier (in my case disk3)
4. Unmount partitions of sd card by clicking unmount
5. open Terminal.app
6. Navigate to folder containing cwm_sd_flashing_boot.img (requires knowledge of basic unix commands)
7. Type "sudo dd if=cwm_sd_flashing_boot.img of=/dev/[disk indentifier] bs=1m" which in my case read "sudo dd if=cwm_sd_flashing_boot.img of=/dev/disk3 bs=1m"
8. Wait as this process takes a while to complete (sometimes 10 minutes to write 2GB). You can type ctrl-t to get a status update, the number before records out represents MBs transfered (should end at 2048)
9. Eject the SD card and follow the instructions in other posts
