ON all CM 11 page , it says to update my recovery to new one through fastboot.
I am not sure how to do this on nook tablet. Can anyone help me ?
Also does repartitioning of 16Gb needs to done with each rom install or once done , it stays the same through out ?
Hi, repartitioning doesnt need to be done with a new rom install.
IF THIS IS A CLEAN INSTALL
you dont HAVE to install it through flashing a new recovery using fastboot
you just need a working newer CWM , or a working TWRP that you can boot
if you can boot to an older Clockwordmod recovery in any form, you can flash a newer version of CWM to the internal by using a zip file , this user has a couple of the newest ones hosted here:
after you flash the new recovery, remove the SDcard, power completely down,
press and hold the "N" NOOK button, and hold the power button for just a second or 2 after you see the tablet boot, and you should be prompted for the new recovery that you just flashed.
the newer recoveries have an option on the boot menu to start fastboot. So, if you really wanted to follow the instructions to the letter, get or make a working sd card of a newer CWM recovery, boot to it, then as long as your adb/utilities folder on your PC has fastboot in it, you can fastboot the recovery-0.2.img as is in the cm11 thread.
I found I never had to use fastboot before this cm11 install , so I didnt even have the fastboot on my pc side and had to hunt it down.
my first several installs of CM11 were done using an older boot sdcard that had TWRP recovery on it and it works fine.
it will probably be a lot easier it you have a working tablet, to have the copied the zips for cm11 and the gapps you want to install to the tablets
internal memory first, before flashing the new recovery internally
---------- (I completely forgot this other possibility, I'm always just doing clean installs)
IF YOU WANT CM to automatically upgrade though the CM updater process on a running CM10
then , yes you need the newer recovery, and it probably is best if it is the recovery-0.2.img the developer posted in the CM11 thread.
I've never tried it so I dont know how well it migrates your "stuff" from CM10 to CM11
theres a lot of changes to the way storage is mounted in CM11 , and the CM updating process is an important thing they are trying to make as seamless as possible.
If theres stuff on the tablet you really need, I'd save it first before doing any kind of major upgrade like this.
