Hi
So I got to step 4, but instead of getting Cynaboot screen I get the factory reset option. Tried a couple of times but get the same should I clear my microsd card and start over? I'm upgrading an HD+.
Thanks,
JacquieB

Format your microSD card and try again, if the issue persists try a different microSD card,
i have heard Nook's can be picky on which microSD cards will & wont work.

Hi
I was able to successfully install Linage OS to my Nook HD +...Thank you!
However, I also tried to install Gapps at the same time but it would let me. I tried to install PICO as you suggested. I believe the message I got was that there wasn't enough space on my Nook. Is there another version of gapps that you can recommend? And the steps to install post rooting my Nook? I did a factory reset prior to converting my Nook so surprised when I got this message. As always your help is greatly appreciated :)

Glad this guide was able to help you get LineageOS on your Nook,
You can try this version but since i dont use Gapps i have no idea if it will work.

That issue was very common with later versions of Nougat. The problem is the /system partition; it's not large enough for Gapps. You have to use this guide to make it work: https://github.com/Lanchon/REPIT/issues/59. This zip file expands the /system partition to 1GB so that you don't have to struggle installing Gapps due to size limitations. Just follow the links in the guide for downloading the proper zip file. It should be named "lanchon-repit-20170115-factory=same-system=1G-cache=112M+wipe-data=same-ovation.zip" or something like that. That zip file has to be flashed/executed from the internal /tmp location at TWRP; it won't work if you flash it from a MicroSD card, it has to be moved using the: advanced > file manager > copy > /tmp at TWRP first, before being flashed from the /tmp location. It took me many tries to get it right as it wasn't something I had to do on my Nook HD+ when using Marshmallow. It takes a while to flash, but afterwards you should have enough space at the /system partition to install any Gapps file you want. You should probably give that guide a read before trying anything though.

Thank you Merazomo! Is this process just to expand the partition then install Gapps or is it a complete install of lineage os plus expansion of the partition? Thanks again :).

I've only had to do it once given there aren't any newer ROMs out there for the Nook HD+; therefore, I haven't done it again since the first time I did it, so I don't know if the zip can be installed without any consequences to your current LineageOS ROM. I did it when I already had a rooted Android Nougat ROM installed on my Nook, so it seems all that zip file does is expand/resize and move around partitions to make enough room to be able to install Gapps. In theory, nothing "should" change from your current setup; I can't confirm it though. Backup everything you have right now and give it a go if you want. There's another zip file in the guide to return all the partitions to their stock default layout in case anything goes wrong. Again, for me all the zip file did was increase the /system partition leaving my Nougat ROM intact but I've only done it once.

No problem, good luck. I do have to rephrase a few things that I might have said wrong; I'm sure you get it, but someone else using this info as a guide might get confused if they've never moved zip files using TWRP's file manager. I didn't mean the REPIT zip file has to be installed directly from the /tmp location as I don't think you can flash a zip file like that. The REPIT zip file has to be copied/moved to the /tmp location and then installed just like you would install or flash a LineageOS.zip or Gapps.zip using TWRP's Install tab on the main page. Just so people don't get confused Lol. Now that I think about it though, I do recommend a clean install of the Nook after flashing the REPIT zip file; I've had Gapps installations that restored my ROM to default factory settings before, so might as well get it over with in one shot.

This thread has been insanely helpful, thank you guys. I'm very new to all this and I had to make an account just to be able to beg for help here.

I was able to successfully follow the steps of this guide up until I actually got into the OS (I'm attempting to use the Lineage variant) where, if I have GAPPS installed, the device just boots to a black screen and spams me with "Setup wizard has stopped working". I have tried reflashing using several different versions of GAPPS, but that is always the result. Trying to manually install the Google services without GAPPS just results in the Google Framework constantly crashing until I uninstall it.

Eventually I gave up on GAPPS and tried to go the Google-free route, but now I have discovered a new problem. I am able to install apks just fine and my device storage shows up correctly in settings, but whenever I try to download a file via Chrome it says I have no storage space in downloads. In My Files it shows that I have 0 bytes free.

I've been struggling with this thing for hours and I'm at a loss. Any help from someone more experienced would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

You have access to TWRP through the MicroSD card you created, have you done a clean installation of LineageOS since the first time you installed it? I mean, did you do the whole: Wipe > Advanced Wipe > Dalvik, System, Cache, data, Internal Storage, to basically start over with clean partitions? I've heard of people being able to install Gapps through the "Open GApps 1.1.2" apk found on google once you've installed the OS without having to resize the /system partition with REPIT; I've explained all of this in a few posts above this one, but I've never actually done it myself. If the installation of LineageOS goes through just fine after installing from TWRP without Gapps, and the problem arises when installing the Gapps zip (ARM, 7.1 for LineageOS ROM) from TWRP the next time around, then you've found the culprit. The advantage to having access to TWRP is that you can try various ROMs and different combinations. You should be getting errors when installing the Gapps zip file from TWRP if they're not installing correctly, or if they're not the correct Gapps type for your LineageOS ROM (which is Nougat in this case).

To clarify, each time I tried a different version of GAPPS and after I gave up on it I wiped everything and flashed the ROM again.

GAPPS installs with no errors in TWRP, but once I boot the setup wizard will constantly crash. If I delete the setup wizard before I install GAPPS I can get further into the OS but pretty much every Google app will spam me with crash messages.

As I said in my previous post, I've pretty much given up on getting GAPPS to work. Now I'm just trying to figure out why I'm unable to download anything due to "Not enough space" and why "My Files" shows I have 0 bytes free when in settings my storage shows the expected amount of free space, AND I can install apks just fine. (This issue is WITHOUT GAPPS flashed.)

If you have a Nook HD+, let me know. I can flash whichever LineageOS zip and Gapps zip you're trying to flash onto your Nook, on my own Nook HD+ to see if I get the same result. If you have a Nook HD them I'm sorry, there's not much I can do. I've used "lnos_ovation-ota-NJH47F.181223" for a very long time as that was the most stable LineageOS version I tested. Most newer ROMs would give me issues in one way or another.

I appreciate the offer, but unfortunately I have a Nook HD. I'm using the hummingbird version of that same Lineage build. It seems like it works fine without GAPPS thus far except for this storage issue.

I've tried wiping and reflashing the ROM and it still says I have 0 bytes free in the included files app. Trying to download anything with the included browser just crashes the browser, but I can install apks via an SD card, F droid, etc. just fine.

I can't see any folders when I plug the tablet into my PC either. I can open "Shared Internal Storage" just fine but nothing is there and I can't write to it.

If the ROM has been proven to work well for others, perhaps I made a error while installing? I followed OP'S guide (From a stock install) exactly, so I'm not sure what I could've messed up.

It sounds like something might be wrong with your internal storage, im not sure there much you can do about it.

    How to install Aosp 7.1.2, LineageOS 14.1 or Cyanogenmod 14.1 (Android 7.1.1)
    on a NookHD or NookHD+


    Code:
    • I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards, thermonuclear war,  or you getting fired because the alarm app failed.
    • If you have any concerns about features included please do some research before flashing anything!
    • YOU and YOU ALONE are choosing to make these modifications.




    Cyanogenmod builds are available but Not recommended because it hasnt been updated since December 2016)
    This guide works for the NookHD (Hummingbird) & NookHD+ (Ovation) Files for the NookHD+ (Ovation) can be found in post #2
    It has been reported that the Nook's are picky on which SD cards will work with this "method", if you have issues try formatting the SD card, if that doesnt work try other SD cards.




    Known Bugs & Issues:

    Nook HD (Hummingbird)


    AOSP:




    • When you enable Wifi it wont auto connect, how to fix this:

    turn off wifi, turn on wifi (wait to see if it auto connects) forget your network, connect to your network, repeat steps until wifi auto connects.



    • Restarting your Nook will boot into Twrp, Solution: use the Power off option instead





    • Using the "Power Off" option in power menu will just Restart the Nook instead of powering off, Solution: reboot into TWRP and choose "Power Off"



    LineageOS:



    • one random .apk file (the .apk seems to be different for each person) will refuse to install due to "lack of storage" theres no known workaround.



    • Using the "Power Off" option in power menu will just Restart the Nook instead of powering off, Solution: reboot into TWRP and choose "Power Off"


    • Screen mirroring using "scrcpy" may cause the device to freeze and require a force shutdown by holding the power button


    Cyanogenmod:
    • Theres no known bugs or issues



    NookHD+ (Ovation)

    Nothing has been reported yet, if you find any bugs please report them & any possible soultions





    What's needed:

    your Nook HD or NookHD+ (make sure it's charged before doing this)
    A micro SD card (its recommended to use 16GB+ micro SD card)
    A micro SD adapter (only needed if your computer doesnt have a MicroSD card slot)
    A computer




    Step 1:
    Obtain the files

    download Win32 disk imager, it can be found here
    (Ignore the other files)




    The next files for the Nook HD are at the end of this post, for the Nook HD+ see post #2:
    (If the files i provided stop working check out the sources)

    Now is the time you need to pick your ROM:

    aosp_hummingbird-7.1.2-20181227-1604.zip is the Aosp ROM

    cm_hummingbird-ota-NMF26Q.161222.zip is Cyanogenmod

    lnos_hummingbird-ota-NJH47F.181223.zip is LineageOS


    Other needed files:

    NookHD-bootable-CWM-6027-for-emmc-stock-4GB-rev3-(02.03.13).zip is the recovery that is used on the SD card,

    twrp-3.0.1-0-hummingbird.zip is the verison of Twrp that is used just to get twrp installed on your Nook, its updated later in the guide with this one:

    twrp-3.1.1-0-hummingbird.img is the verison that will be used permanently
    (later versions have issues, bugs or wont boot)




    Gapps aka Google play store/services (optional)

    You can download Gapps from https://opengapps.org/
    If you don't know what to to do choose these options:
    Platform: ARM
    Android: 7.1
    Variant: Pico
    (If you have issues you might need to download a older version)


    To install Gapps you will need two extra files:

    (Note: DO NOT change the file names of the two files, the file names are important)


    For Nook HD (Hummingbird) grab:

    lanchon-repit-20170115-factory=32M-system=1G-cache=32M+wipe-data=max-hummingbird.zip


    For Nook HD+ (Ovation) grab:

    lanchon-repit-20170115-factory=32M-system=1G-cache=32M+wipe-data=max-ovation.zip


    For both the Nook HD & Nook HD+ grab:
    delete-backup-of-stock-rom-hummingbird-ovation.zip


    (Note: these files are needed for a additional step you will have to take to get Gapps installed, the extra step is explained later on)





    Step 2:
    unzip this file:
    NookHD-bootable-CWM-6027-for-emmc-stock-4GB-rev3-(02.03.13).zip

    (its 3.8GB unzipped to make sure you have space on your computer and it might take a minute to unzip)
    After unzipping it you should get a .img file



    Step 3:

    install win32 disk imager (if your on Mac or Linux you might need to find alternative software) then run it, insert your SD using using a adapter or native micro SD slot, now you should be presented this this
    2017-02-26_13-39-01.jpg

    Under "device" you will see a drive letter make sure its set to your micro SD and Not anything else (you can check the drive letter of your micro SD card using your file manager)

    Now under "image file" choose the NookHD-bootable-CWM-6027-for-emmc-stock-4GB-rev3-(02.03.13).img

    That you unzipped a few minutes ago, and then click "write"

    This will Erase anything on your microSD card so make sure you get your files off of it before proceeding,

    after that's done drag and drop the:
    ROM, Twrp zip file & Twrp .img file, and optionally Gapps and the extra files needed to install Gapps
    onto the micro SD card using your file manager,
    after you copied the files eject your micro SD card from your computer.



    Step 4 (installation)

    Power off your Nook HD, then insert your micro SD into the microSD card slot,
    now hold the power and "n" button at the same time once the screen comes on let go of the power button keep holding the "n" button until you see this screen
    wp_20160803_10_48_17_pro1.jpg


    Once you see Cyanoboot let go of the "n" button and wait until it boots into the recovery once it gets past the cyanoboot screen you should see this screen:
    wp_20160803_10_53_00_pro1.jpg



    (Use volume buttons to go up and down, power button to back out 1 menu, "n" button to select highlighted option)

    now select install zip, navigate to "external sd" now install the Twrp zip file (3.0.1.0)

    once that's done back out the first menu remove your microSD card
    (Removing your microSD card won't force shutdown the nook)

    after your microSD card is removed select "Reboot system now"
    if asked about disabling stock recovery select Yes, if asked about root select No,
    (you can get root later if you want)


    once your nook turns on again hold the power button until it turns back off, once off hold power and "n" button let go of power when nook turns on then let go of "n" button when "Cyanoboot" appears

    (If your nook doesn't want to turn on when holding the key combo:

    Hold the power button, The second the screen turns on let go of the power button & hold the "n" button, keep holding the "n" button for five seconds after the "Cyanoboot" screen appears)


    Now you should boot into Twrp, once in Twrp insert your microSD card

    (until you format the SD card you will need to remove it when rebooting or else you will reboot into the recovery on the microSD card)
    (Note: it is recommended to choose the Power Off option in Twrp instead of Reboot because then you can safely remove your microSD card when the device is powered off then reinsert it when back into Twrp)
    (after you have completed this guide & formated the SD card disregard this note)

    Now select "install" (Twrp uses touch screen)
    then navigate to "external sd" now in the bottom right you will see "install image" button select that,

    Now select the Twrp .img (3.1.1.0) on the "swipe to install" screen you will see 2 options "recovery" and "boot" select recovery then swipe to install,

    (if it failed to install back out to the main menu select "reboot" then "power off" once you nook is off go back into twrp using the key combo then try installing the Twrp .img file again)

    once the Twrp .img file is installed back out to the main menu now select "reboot" then "power off" then get back into Twrp using the key combo,

    Now it is time to do a "advanced wipe" from the main menu select "wipe" then "advanced wipe" now select the following:

    "Dalvik/ART cache"
    "System"
    "Data"
    "Internal Storage" (optional)
    "Cache"
    (DO NOT select microSD card or else you will lose the files you need)

    After selecting all of the things listed above (NOT microSD)
    "Swipe To Wipe" and wait until it finishes,


    ==========================================================================
    The section below is for instructions on how to make the nessasary changes to install Gapps, Skip it if you dont want Gapps.
    ==========================================================================


    If you choose to install Gapps you will need to resize some partitions which is explained below,
    In the event that something goes wrong and you dont know how to fix this process going wrong ask for support, or visit this Github Repository and see if they have the answer.


    How to resize the partitions to allow the installation of Gapps:


    • Delete backup of the stock ROM

    There is a backup of the Stock ROM that needs to be deleted to free up some space

    On Twrp's homescreen go to "install", now find:

    delete-backup-of-stock-rom-hummingbird-ovation.zip

    and install it,




    • Resizing the partitions to allow Gapps installation

    Now it is time to resize the partitions,

    On Twrp's homescreen select "install", find:

    lanchon-repit-20170115-factory=32M-system=1G-cache=32M+wipe-data=max-_____.zip

    And install it,

    (Note: because this file is resizing partitions it may take a while,
    DO NOT interrupt this process, Stopping this process could courrpt the "/data" partition
    i recommend plugging in your charging cable and just leave it alone.


    (Note: Wiping the partitions will Not restore the partitions back to default)


    ============================End of Gapps Guide==============================



    Once that finishes back out the main menu and select "install" navigate to "external sd" then select your ROM and if you want Gapps select "add more zips" then select the Gapps zip,


    Now Swipe to install, after your ROM & Gapps (if you chose to install Gapps) is installed remove your microSD card then select "Reboot"

    after that it should boot into your new Custom ROM, give it 5-10 minutes for first boot,
    Now your done! Enjoy your new Custom ROM.



    If something is to ever happen and you are unable to access Twrp or your ROM, follow these steps:
    • follow Step 3 again,
    • after following Step 3 boot to your SD card,
    • install the Twrp .zip again,
    • once Twrp is reinstalled remove the SD card and reboot to Twrp,
    • in Twrp insert the SD card, install Twrp .img (3.1.1.0), remove SD card & reboot back into Twrp,
    (Skip the next steps if your ROM is still working)
    • once your back in Twrp, insert the SD card,
    • advanced wipe everything, (except the SD card), flash your ROM (and optionally) Gapps, then remove the SD card & Reboot.



    Note: on boot your Nook will show the Nook "splash screen" then the Cyanoboot "splash screen" then your ROM "splash screen" this is normal dont worry about it.

    (You can now format the mircoSD card used for this install process)

    Finally got the darn thing working. I had tried "aosp_hummingbird-ota-N2G48H.181223" that I got from another thread, and that one had the same issues as the Lineage build from OP's post for me. I just flashed "aosp_hummingbird-7.1.2-20181227-1604" from this thread and now the storage issue appears to be gone. I haven't tried flashing it with GAPPS yet. I appreciate you guys trying to save my sanity.
    I'm glad you got it working. Now you have everything you need; a stock ROM, a custom ROM, and knowledge on how to resize the /system partition. You should be able to get the Nook HD exactly as you want it.

    Thank you Merazomo! Is this process just to expand the partition then install Gapps or is it a complete install of lineage os plus expansion of the partition? Thanks again :).
    I've only had to do it once given there aren't any newer ROMs out there for the Nook HD+; therefore, I haven't done it again since the first time I did it, so I don't know if the zip can be installed without any consequences to your current LineageOS ROM. I did it when I already had a rooted Android Nougat ROM installed on my Nook, so it seems all that zip file does is expand/resize and move around partitions to make enough room to be able to install Gapps. In theory, nothing "should" change from your current setup; I can't confirm it though. Backup everything you have right now and give it a go if you want. There's another zip file in the guide to return all the partitions to their stock default layout in case anything goes wrong. Again, for me all the zip file did was increase the /system partition leaving my Nougat ROM intact but I've only done it once.

    I also tried to install Gapps at the same time but it would let me. I tried to install PICO as you suggested. I believe the message I got was that there wasn't enough space on my Nook. Is there another version of gapps that you can recommend? And the steps to install post rooting my Nook? I did a factory reset prior to converting my Nook so surprised when I got this message. As always your help is greatly appreciated :)
    That issue was very common with later versions of Nougat. The problem is the /system partition; it's not large enough for Gapps. You have to use this guide to make it work: https://github.com/Lanchon/REPIT/issues/59. This zip file expands the /system partition to 1GB so that you don't have to struggle installing Gapps due to size limitations. Just follow the links in the guide for downloading the proper zip file. It should be named "lanchon-repit-20170115-factory=same-system=1G-cache=112M+wipe-data=same-ovation.zip" or something like that. That zip file has to be flashed/executed from the internal /tmp location at TWRP; it won't work if you flash it from a MicroSD card, it has to be moved using the: advanced > file manager > copy > /tmp at TWRP first, before being flashed from the /tmp location. It took me many tries to get it right as it wasn't something I had to do on my Nook HD+ when using Marshmallow. It takes a while to flash, but afterwards you should have enough space at the /system partition to install any Gapps file you want. You should probably give that guide a read before trying anything though.
