First, I would like to thank cicada for the 0.6.8 image, thecubed for sdcard bootable CWR image, shad0wf0x for his stock images, dalingrin for his kernel, rookie1 for his buttons, Wretchedlocket for his icon and theme help and samuelhalff for his help and his CWR image that I customized. This should fit on a 2GB or larger sdcard.

I've created a custom image for an SDCard using Nookie Froyo 0.6.8 as a base. This will fit a 2 GB or larger sdcard. If you want the sdcard to be larger, you will need to delete the 4th partition and recreate it. It should be a FAT32 format and give it a label of sdcard. Added custom designed just for us Chuck6993. Thank you Chuck6993. If you like the bootanimation, please visit his thread and get him some beer.


Burn image to sdcard
Boot Nook with sdcard


Added a status bar toggle
Added a feature to put up a notification as to the status of the status bar (this feature can be turned off in Nookie-Froyo Utils)
Added QuickDesk
Cleaned up the icons (I am finally happy with them... draw9patch)
Updated Nookie-Froyo Utils
Point of interest: If you set QuickDesk as your default launcher and add the status bar toggle to QuickDesk, you will be able to double tap the home button to hide or show the state bar.

Status Bar and Notification window in black
No-frills CPU Control added
Added the following lines to init.rc
# sd card read speed fix
write /sys/block/mmcblk0/bdi/read_ahead_kb 2048
Updated NookColor Utils and rename it Nookie-Froyo Utils
- Forced Status Bar options added
- Change density and added new densities options
- Moved Reboot to about tab
- Added Poweroff to about tab
Updated to dalingrin's 3/31/11
Cleaned up the spacing on the status bar... Icons are not jammed up against the clock

dalingrin's 3/28/11 NF kernel
Cleaned up the status bar
Long press on home virtual key to pull up recent apps
Force the status bar in all application; look under NookColorUtils (I am not happy with this app, I am going to completely rewrite it shortly.)
Fixed strange flick behavior on status bar (I have not worked on the flick up and flick down yet)
Browser fix is included in the image
For more on the status bar, see this thread.
Again, download (or better yet buy) setCPU to overclock

If flash is not working in either Dolphin or the Android Browser, you most likely cleared dalvik-cache.
The fix: I have included a copy of flash on the sdcard partition, if flash stops working, go to the sdcard in Astro and tap not press the flash apk. You will be prompted to open the app manager. Uninstall flash then go back into Astro then tap it again to reinstall it. After that is done, go to both Dophin and the Android Browser and delete data and cache under the applications in settings.

Unzip the attached and copy to /system/framework/
This will be difficult for Windows users unless you have adb installed, but I would like some Linux users to test it out. I will try to write a script/app that will unzip and copy directly on the device. If someone else wants to write the script that would be okay too. I am try to avoid making everyone re-image their sdcard just to get the update.

Now to the good stuff, I have everything, messages, buttons and icons on the status bar centered vertically and the drop down notification bar is full screen at 160 LCD density.

Let me know how you like it and how you installed it. We need to come up with a easy install for non-techies that boot to the sdcard.

3/15/11 version 3:
Cleaned up the buttons on the status bar
Cleared out data and rebuilt it (I think this is will fix the problem with the market and wifi. Sorry to make you download and burn it again.)
Again, download (or better yet buy) setCPU to overclock

In the works:
Make the notification drop-down take up the full width of the screen
Move the status bar to the bottom
Make the start bar black

3/14/11 version 2:
dalingrin's latest kernel (dalingrin, if you are reading this, great work)
Add rookie1's buttons to the status bar (Thanks Rookie1!)

I still have some things to clean up but it is working well. Click the N button twice to bring up softkeys whenever there is no status bar.

Put on dalingrin's latest kernel. (If you want to overclock it, you must use SetCPU)
Using ClockworkMod Recovery
Changed build.prop back in a hope to improve video
LauncherPRO <----------

DO NOT DELETE THE SOFTWARE THAT CICADA INSTALLED. (If you delete the default software, market will not display all the packages.)

Use dd or to burn the image to the sdcard. Under the disk menu, choose your drive, then under the disk menu, choose restore image. Use to resize the last partition.

Is the nook reader the app from the market, or is it what came with the nook?

I'll try it out when I get home. So you resized data or whatever for an 8 gig card?

Good choice of basic edits to start customizing the system...same stuff I would do.

I can confirm that this will work using Win32DiskImager to burn to an SD card.

Great work

It will need at least 8gb to fit the sdcard image. I'm using a 16gb and it works fine, however I am wasting space.

BTW OP can you make a 16gb version? It would be much appreciated.
