Leapinlar, thanks for your efforts. I and others do appreciate them. It is not that the "new" persons don't read, it is more like reading a totally alien language and not get a word of it. Give him/her sometime to get used to it.
Thanks again for all you do.

Willing to do a donation to the guys who are making this rooting for the nooks.

Any help will be greatly appreciated it.

Do not get discouraged. This can not be done remotely like leapinlar said. First make sure you have a Sandisk class 4 microSD card. Other cards could be trouble. Then take a deep breath and a good cup of coffee and follow Dummies Guide step by step. I did it and it will work for you too. Do not give up.

If you are having problems with making the bootable card only, then I suppose I can help you via teamviewer? That part should be easily doable, the rest is up to you.

I followed this guy couple of weeks ago, everything worked flawlessly and my NookHD has been running fine ever since

Figured out the issue -- I needed to use "plain" and not "rooted".

Just wish I could get the microSDXC card card to recognize 64 gb and I'd be all set...

Thanks for this, very easy to follow and had it up and running in no time. Just feel like a fool for not doing this sooner considering how well it runs! Thanks again

Suggested updates to the guide - and thanks!
First of all, a big Thank You to e.mote and each one of the people involved in putting together these packages. Your efforts are much appreciated.

I also have feedback and suggested corrections to the instruction:
  • CWM-recovery-ovation is now on version 3, and the instruction should be updated to specify that version.
  • The gapps-jb-20130812-signed.zip has a warning attached to it that it is not recommended for Jelly Bean 4.2, and not compatible with 4.3. This created a lot of hesitation with me, and I am sure other followers of this guide could use a clarification. As it turned out, the package worked fine with Cyanogenmod 10.1.3
  • When doing the Stock ROM backup, CWM Recovery will default to External SD Card, so the instruction works fine.
  • However, when doing the baseline backup, after the installation of Cyanogenmod 10.1.3, CWM Recovery defaults to INTERNAL SD Card, so you cannot select the "backup" option; you must select "Backup to External SD Card".
  • Also, one useful piece of advice would be to NOT keep an SD card in the device to begin with, during the installation and updating of apps that you want included in the baseline backup. The reason is that some apps will put a data storage location on the external SD card if they can find one, and that makes the baseline backup complicated. One example of such an app is Spotify. You get an easier process if you insert an external storage SD card (FAT32 formatted) only AFTER having done the app installations and baseline backup.
Thanks again!

"Some Nooks are finicky...". Correct. I got 2 of them 9/23/13, Monday. On Tue when they charged I began. Mine was normal finicky, maybe 10+ tries before success. Abby's was a nightmare. Wed AM I woke thinking I better return it but I wrestled with some it more. I eventually booted up without the SD card and then tried it again. Voila! Probably superstition, but finicky? Got to have a stronger term. We love the HD+, our NCs were becoming sluggish, none on CM10.1, Abby's on CM7.2.

Just want to point out that making SDcard bootable CWM is MUCH easier and WAY faster with instruction at http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2062613
especially if you have only 1-2gb card. Other than that much appreciated!

I followed the first post and flashed the CM 10.1.3 rom successfully. Believe it or not, this is my first time flashing rom on an Android device. Thank you very much.

Curious if anyone experiences touch screen glitches sometimes where the screen responds to a different part of the screen than where you are actually touching? Turning the screen off then back on solves the problem, but didn't know if this was a device problem or CM issue. I didn't experience this prior to the root.
