You have a Nook Tablet, not a Nook Color. Sorry but this guide won't work for you.

That is not a Nook Color, it is a Nook Tablet. Go to the Nook Tablet forum.

Just in case anyone has pulled a Nook Color out of a dark place and wants to tinker here is the CM mother-load:

Took me forever to find a working link for CM 10.2.1 Stable when I came across this.

Hi:
I downloaded the generic image file including CM11 from the first post (the 8.07 MB version) and found a gapps-kk to match somewhere online, but cyanogenmod.org appears to be defunct and I don't know where to find the ROM file I need without it. Are there alternate locations?
TIA

Hitting a snag trying to do this on my Nook Color. I have a 16GB micro SD card. I'm using CM 10.2.1. I've tried the generic sd card images for rev7 and rev8c. Everything seems to go well so far. I put cm-10.2.1.zip onto the "boot" part of the sd card when I plug it back in. When I put it in the Nook, it seems to go ok. It does whatever partitioning it needs to do, then inflates the zip. It then dies on inflating the zip, saying no room left on disk.

When I plug the card back into my computer (Kubuntu 16.04), it looks like this:

Code:
Device     Boot   Start      End  Sectors   Size Id Type
/dev/sdg1  *         63   835379   835317 407.9M  b W95 FAT32
/dev/sdg2        835380  2682854  1847475 902.1M 83 Linux
/dev/sdg3       2682855  6586649  3903795   1.9G 83 Linux
/dev/sdg4       6586650 30909059 24322410  11.6G  c W95 FAT32 (LBA)
Not sure what to do at this point. I tried expanding the img file with /dev/zero of 1GB before writing it to the fresh sd card, but that didn't help (it still only showed 400MB after writing to the sd card for some reason even though the img file on my computer showed 1.4GB).

Maybe the SD Card is the problem. Back in the day, we always had to use SanDisks Class 10 cards for it to work reliably in the Nooks.

Also, I recommend to 2nd to last verson released of the RoM as I recall there being some issue with the last verson, though all the versions are old enough that many apps may no longer work. As I recall Netflix was broken last time I fired it up.

OT, but I really loved that Tablet and rom. Was my first usable android tablet and kept it as my daily driver until I bought a Nexus 7. Still have both but not fired up Nook in a long time.

Is there any way to do this in 2018? All of the links I've found are dead.

I wish someone could get Android O (GO) working on these devices. The latest Android has features that were meant for low specs.
