It seems as if I'm stuck in mtp mode, regardless of whatever I have set.

As of a couple weeks ago, Sam hadn't clobbered in a month or so. If he still hasn't, some of the prebuilts from quite a while ago are still in these builds. That can cost you some of the newer functions. Go to build.prop or tablet info and check build date. If it is still in march, the maybe try eyeballers builds. He clobbers daily.

Eyeballers being the ones with/without opengl? His seem to default to mtp mode without the mass storage being an option... I remember the last time i tried ICS was early february and it had mass_storage but didn't seem to have any features at all.

Yes, but mass storage was finally implemented on 4/22. Download one of his after that and mass storage will work.

Just put this on my wife's nook and its turned it into a new tablet. This is insanely fast and smooth. Thanks to everyone who helped out on all of this!

Enjoy. I know I didn't help out at all but it is a great ROM.

This is my Tapatalk 2 signature. Rockin' the app on my Nook Color running ICS 4.0.4, courtesy of Dalingrin, Fattire, and our other beloved XDA weenies (nemith, keyodi, arcee, hacdan, etc.)... oh, can't forget eyeballer ;)

True that, I had been hesitant to flash it since I hadn't been following the threads and couldn't find any change logs but its incredibly smooth and bug free which is a nice treat. Only bug I've noticed is google chrome just shows blank pages. But I could care less about that since she mainly uses it for games and reading.

Since the option was added I have been unable to get it to work. Fortunately, MTP works great with the Android File Transfer app on my Mac Mini.
Do you have the latest kernel installed? The option requires it. Since Sam does not always clobber his builds first you sometimes end up with old components (like the kernel) in his builds.

Which version of CM9 did you install? I have been trying to go from CM7 to CM9, and last night's build was extremely unstable on my NC. I'm using the TeamWin graphical recovery utility which works flawlessly with CM7, but it was locking up on my regularly last night when I was trying to install CM9. I wiped the cache, Dalvik cache, and did a Factory Reset, but CM9 was giving me fits, so I reverted back to CM7 which installed cleanly.

I just flashed 16.05 nightly. Mass Storage option in settings is grayed out, can't turn it on. USB debugging is off.
Anyone else having this issue on the latest build?
Look back a couple of posts where I asked bigbob23 about the kernel. You might try eyeballers build and see if that helps.

Ran into a problem yesterday, where I couldn't download a ROM update because android said I didn't have enough space on my SD card. As you can see from the picture below, the card has plenty of room, yet android reports the incorrect amount of available space.

Any suggestions?

I would not call 272MB plenty of room. Are you saying you have more room than that and the graphic is wrong? What does your file manager say you have? If that is the right amount, that is very marginal. Try moving some of the apps you have installed to SD to internal and see if that helps.

Upon further investigation, it turns out that my 16GB sd card was almost full!

Deleted about five nandroid backups and freed up 3.5GB's. Lol

Still not sure what's taking up all the space. I'll keep looking.

Filling it up is easy. I'm always having to look for things to delete. A good tool I use is Astro File Manager. It has a function under tools to show SD card usage.
Oooh, a real use for Astro. That's actually a nice display!

The old Unix pre-GUI sysadmin way:
Code:
# du /mnt/sdcard | sort -n
Those nandroid backups sure suck up the megabytes, don't they?

    As of 8/25/12, this project is officially discontinued. All information below is for archival purposes only and will not be supported henceforth.

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    INTRODUCTION
    Now that Fattire has lifted his request that everyone build their own zips, I've decided to make available the nightly builds I've been generating. I've got an OS X system cranking out a new build every night at midnight, so there will always be an up to date zip available!

    Credit for this rom goes to Fattire, Dalingrin, keyodi, nemith, arcee and the the other hard working people over in the development thread, as well as the the CyanogenMod developers and anyone who's done work on the Nook Color. I wish I could list everyone by name but there's so many great people who've made contributions I can't even begin to do so. I'm just building zips from the source; we'd be nowhere without the contributions these great developers have made to this community.

    As nighty builds, these zips may not always work. I'll try to remove any zip found to be broken, but you know the drill: All files provided here are to be installed at your own risk. I'm making built zips available, but no warranty is expressed or implied by the hosting of said zips. I'll provide what support I'm able to, but that doesn't mean that there aren't potentially unknown bugs. If you have questions, you should check the development thread or try the #NookColor IRC channnel on irc.freenode.net.

    As posted by Fattire slightly further down, anyone feeling adventurous should definitely consider building from source rather than downloading the built zips. Here's his two cents:
    Want to build ICS from raw source code yourself?

    It may be a good learning activity, and will certainly make you more self-sufficient. Hundreds have built ICS for Nookcolor successfully, and understanding the process will make you an Android ninja-- PLUS you can try features and bug fixes as-yet-unaccepted-into-the-mainstream build.

    Take a look at:

    The ICS NookColor Build WalkThrough

    However, if you're not quite sold on setting up a development environment but you still want to try the goodness that is Ice Cream Sandwich, proceeed on down to the...

    DOWNLOADS
    Without further ado: The Ice Cream Sandwich zips!
    Ice Cream Sandwich Nightly Builds.

    The rom does not include the google apps, so you can/should flash the lastest version of those, which is available here.

    Finally, I've hosted a few flashable zip files to make small tweaks to the rom. These are all located in the misc. folder on my server. Below is an explanation of each zip and its purpose.

    MISC FOLDER INFO

    If you notice that some apps are missing from the market, this may be due to the fact that these ICS builds for the nook do not include support for apps which request phone permissions. Although this ideally would be fixed by developers not requesting phone permissions for their app unless it absolutely needs to be phone-specific, you can also fix it by flashing the telephony-permissions-fix.zip file located in the misc folder. You will likely want to flash this file immediately after flashing your rom.

    Secondly, if you prefer the old bootanimation from the galaxy nexus, you can also flash the fix-bootanimation.zip located in the Misc. folder, which replace the new CM9 animation it with Homer_S_xda's fixed version. Thanks to Homer for the fix!

    NOTES ON INSTALLING TO SD
    I've fixed Verygreen's sd installer image to work with ICS -- you should no longer have to flash SP1 first, or rename the gapps to gapps-gb. If you test out this image, please let me know how it works for you! More recently, Leapinlar has stepped up in helping to fix the image further, increasing its size to allow for the larger size of the new nightlies. Thanks to him for his help -- It's available for download here. Huge thanks to Verygreen for helping me to figure out what needed to be fixed -- in the words of HacDan, "He's not just super helpful, he's a genius". Once you've got the new image, you can use Verygreen's original instructions from his thread on SD Installs, replacing "cm7" with "cm9" where necessary.

    IN CONCLUSION
    Please remember to thank the developers working on this project, as they've done seriously awesome things for us in an amazingly short amount of time. If you have questions/comments specifically regarding my zips, please post them here, but if you have more general questions regarding Ice Cream Sandwich on the NC you may want to head on over to the development thread. Finally, if you're really enjoying the rom I'd strongly recommend that you try setting up a build environment and building your own zips -- even though I'm making prebuilt ones available they're no substitute for the experience gained by getting familiar with the build process yourself, and Fattire has done a great job of making it an extremely accessible and rewarding project.

    It seems that a while back my build system broke for some reason, and I just haven't ever had time to focus on getting it back in working order -- I've started a new job and am going back to school, so I think at this point I'm just going to officially discontinue this project and leave you guys in Eyeballer's well qualified hands. Thanks to everyone who used my builds -- this was a fun project for me and I hope you all enjoyed it too.

    And you can build too!

    So I've fallen off the forum a bit in recent weeks/months, but it's summer now so I'm back! In the interest of trying to bring this thread back up to date with the new developments, I've FINALLY gotten around to making a change I'd been meaning to make for a long time now -- my builds will now clobber after uploading each nightly to the server, so every one will be a clean scratch build. Hopefully this'll get rid of any issues that may have been kicking around from reusing the code.

    EDIT: I also want to thank those helpful posters -- I have leapinlar primarily in mind but there's too many to name individually -- who have been tirelessly providing user support and keeping this thread alive. You guys are a great help to the community!

    I'm sorry, but the poster who comes into a ROM build post for the Nook Color in the Nook Color development section of XDA and says they have dumped it for a Fire because the Fire is faster (duh it has a dual core processor and was released a year later than the Color), is the troll.

    Mods you can remove this whole string of off-topic posts started by the troll.

    Done... Carry on folks!
