  • Before you begin:
    • To update to 1.2 you must do a complete wipe.
    • You must update to 1.2 to use ManualNooter Instructions Here.
    1. You must already have a registered NOOKcolor
    2. You must have a Google Account, for Gmail, Market, Etc. IF you used a Gmail account for B&N Registration you should use that one for this process.
    3. CWM Bootable from SD Card: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=987735 - You should always use the Latest CWM Version
      • OR emmc CWM Recovery Installed
    4. You must have enough intelligence to follow instructions.
  • 1.3 Must do these instructions first with 4.5.18 then with 4.6.16.
  • Let's get started:
    • If you're running a previous MN you do not need to do a complete wipe.
    1. Download ManualNooter from here:
      ManualNooter-4-5-18.zip - 1.3 Only
      ManualNooter-4-6-16.zip
    2. Copy onto your flashable CWM SD card using Windows Explorer, OS X Finder, etc.
      • See step 3 above for how to make a flashable CWM card.
      • DO NOT extract the zip file. It MUST be left as-is.
      • DO NOT copy the zip file into a folder. Leave it at the top directory of your card
    3. Unplug your NOOKcolor from computer. (If Plugged in.)
    4. Turn off your NookColor (If turned on.)
    5. Insert Flashable CWM SDcard with ManulNooter into your NOOKcolor.
    6. Plug the USB cable into your computer and your NOOKcolor. (This will boot up the NOOKcolor.)
      • If using Flashable CWM SDCard this should boot you into recovery.
      • If using eMMC CWM Recovery instead of SD CWM Recovery, boot to recovery.
    7. When CWM boots select the update using your Volume Keys and n button:
      • - install zip from sdcard (Volume up 4 times, then n)
      • - choose zip from sdcard (Volume down 1 time, then n)
      • - manualnooter-4-x-x.zip (Hit volume up until you get to it, then n)
        • 1.3 needs to run 4.5.18 before 4.6.16
      • - Confirm that you really want to run the update.
        • Selecting this indicates that you take responsibility for your own actions.
    8. Wait patiently and follow onscreen directions.
      • If you get "Install Failed" after rebooting out of CWM this can be normal. Just reboot again.
    9. After reboot and unlocking your device select Zeam Launcher.
    10. Run Fix Permissions from Rom Manager - 1.3 Only after running 4.6.16
    11. Open up Market and Accept Terms and Service/Sign In.
      • If you get a full application list, you're done!
      • You may not have to Accept Terms and Service or Sign In if you're updating from a previous MN version.
      • If you made it this far your nook should be successfully Rooted.
    12. Enable Non-Market Installs by running the NookColor Tools App.
      • If you want to revert your card to a "usable" state.
    13. Go to Settings > Device Info > SdCard > UnMount > Format
    14. This will wipe your SDCard of all MN/CWM Flashable abilities. If you use this you will have to reflash the SDCard for future MN releases.

For those of us on 1.2 with su busybox install ith most of this already in place including most of the gapps etc must we start over from scratch or can we just flash this over our current install with CWM?

Congrats, looks like you've made a lot of progress on this.

Before 10,000 others ask, what happens if you flash your Nooter over my apk-enabler? Perhaps we should compare Edify scripts to see if anything is being stepped on.

A couple of suggestions:

* Some apps may expect su to reside in /system/xbiin - it would be a good idea to set a symlink here

* Busybox is rather useless without having all of its symlnks created. /system/xbin is an appropriate place for these. Something like this should suffice:

symlink("/system/bin/busybox", "/system/xbin/[", "/system/xbin/[[", "/system/xbin/arp", "/system/xbin/ash", "/system/xbin/awk", "/system/xbin/basename", "/system/xbin/bbconfig", "/system/xbin/brctl", "/system/xbin/bunzip2", "/system/xbin/bzcat", "/system/xbin/bzip2", "/system/xbin/cal", "/system/xbin/cat", "/system/xbin/catv", "/system/xbin/chgrp", "/system/xbin/chmod", "/system/xbin/chown", "/system/xbin/chroot", "/system/xbin/cksum", "/system/xbin/clear", "/system/xbin/cmp", "/system/xbin/cp", "/system/xbin/cpio", "/system/xbin/cut", "/system/xbin/date", "/system/xbin/dc", "/system/xbin/dd", "/system/xbin/depmod", "/system/xbin/devmem", "/system/xbin/df", "/system/xbin/diff", "/system/xbin/dirname", "/system/xbin/dmesg", "/system/xbin/dnsd", "/system/xbin/dos2unix", "/system/xbin/du", "/system/xbin/echo", "/system/xbin/ed", "/system/xbin/egrep", "/system/xbin/env", "/system/xbin/expr", "/system/xbin/false", "/system/xbin/fdisk", "/system/xbin/fgrep", "/system/xbin/find", "/system/xbin/fold", "/system/xbin/free", "/system/xbin/freeramdisk", "/system/xbin/fuser", "/system/xbin/getopt", "/system/xbin/grep", "/system/xbin/gunzip", "/system/xbin/gzip", "/system/xbin/head", "/system/xbin/hexdump", "/system/xbin/id", "/system/xbin/ifconfig", "/system/xbin/insmod", "/system/xbin/install", "/system/xbin/ip", "/system/xbin/kill", "/system/xbin/killall", "/system/xbin/killall5", "/system/xbin/length", "/system/xbin/less", "/system/xbin/ln", "/system/xbin/losetup", "/system/xbin/ls", "/system/xbin/lsmod", "/system/xbin/lspci", "/system/xbin/lsusb", "/system/xbin/lzop", "/system/xbin/lzopcat", "/system/xbin/md5sum", "/system/xbin/mkdir", "/system/xbin/mke2fs", "/system/xbin/mkfifo", "/system/xbin/mkfs.ext2", "/system/xbin/mknod", "/system/xbin/mkswap", "/system/xbin/mktemp", "/system/xbin/modprobe", "/system/xbin/more", "/system/xbin/mount", "/system/xbin/mountpoint", "/system/xbin/mv", "/system/xbin/netstat", "/system/xbin/nice", "/system/xbin/nohup", "/system/xbin/nslookup", "/system/xbin/ntpd", "/system/xbin/od", "/system/xbin/patch", "/system/xbin/pgrep", "/system/xbin/pidof", "/system/xbin/ping", "/system/xbin/pkill", "/system/xbin/printenv", "/system/xbin/printf", "/system/xbin/ps", "/system/xbin/pwd", "/system/xbin/rdev", "/system/xbin/readlink", "/system/xbin/realpath", "/system/xbin/renice", "/system/xbin/reset", "/system/xbin/rm", "/system/xbin/rmdir", "/system/xbin/rmmod", "/system/xbin/route", "/system/xbin/run-parts", "/system/xbin/sed", "/system/xbin/seq", "/system/xbin/setsid", "/system/xbin/sh", "/system/xbin/sha1sum", "/system/xbin/sha256sum", "/system/xbin/sha512sum", "/system/xbin/sleep", "/system/xbin/sort", "/system/xbin/split", "/system/xbin/stat", "/system/xbin/strings", "/system/xbin/stty", "/system/xbin/swapoff", "/system/xbin/swapon", "/system/xbin/sync", "/system/xbin/sysctl", "/system/xbin/tac", "/system/xbin/tail", "/system/xbin/tar", "/system/xbin/tee", "/system/xbin/telnet", "/system/xbin/test", "/system/xbin/tftp", "/system/xbin/time", "/system/xbin/top", "/system/xbin/touch", "/system/xbin/tr", "/system/xbin/traceroute", "/system/xbin/true", "/system/xbin/tty", "/system/xbin/tune2fs", "/system/xbin/umount", "/system/xbin/uname", "/system/xbin/uniq", "/system/xbin/unix2dos", "/system/xbin/unlzop", "/system/xbin/unzip", "/system/xbin/uptime", "/system/xbin/usleep", "/system/xbin/uudecode", "/system/xbin/uuencode", "/system/xbin/vi", "/system/xbin/watch", "/system/xbin/wc", "/system/xbin/wget", "/system/xbin/which", "/system/xbin/whoami", "/system/xbin/xargs", "/system/xbin/yes", "/system/xbin/zcat");

Uhm... there'd be double app issues, Nook Color Tools Data and System Busybox in xbin and w/e you put it, Superuser in Data and System, anything else it should just overwrite.

In that case, can you put a few lines in to remove other versions?

Also, it may be a good idea to install non-AOSP APKs to /data/app for several reasons:

* users can uninstall unwanted apps

* updates to things like Superuser.apk will complain about over-writing "system applications"

* Ideally, vendor-supplied files *should* reside in /system, "user" stuff should go in /data (much like how file paths work in unix - /bin and /sbin vs /usr/sbin /usr/bin /usr/local/sbin /usr/local/bin etc...)

The lines are blurred here because we are also replacing missing vendor functionality, but the principal is the same - you will never see an update for framework.jar via the market so it's a non-issue there.

Just wanted to clear this up - I would prefer not to step on one-another if possible :)

This his been the same setup for several versions of AutoNooter.

Gapps goes into system the same way it does on CM.

Superuser has gone in system/app because that's where the superuser zip would of put it.

Nook Color Tools goes into System so that it can switch keyboards (when you have more than one available and LatineIME.apk isn't there.).

There's no issue with framework.jar being updated anymore because this uses an ALTERNATIVE method for what framework was fixing.

    From now on if your having an issue here's the format that needs to be used:

    • Rooted with: ManualNooter 4.x.x
    • Kernel:
    • Additional Mods (includes wifi adhoc, etc):

    Then list the problem you're having. The faster we have information about your setup the faster someone can see about helping.


    There's an entire two file change in 4.5.18 from 4.5.6 if your Wifi Adhoc w/e worked on 4.5.6 but doesn't on the update means something else is going wrong, perhaps some settings got changed around the same time you updated. Otherwise if you could use ADB or something to logcat when you try to connect perhaps someone can actually look into it.


    Also all update fixes for market are in the last two versions of MN. IF you're not using at least 4.5.6 then don't ***** when you get "Download Unsuccessful" also don't ***** if you get "Unknown Reason -18" because you decided the OP was too long for your liking and you just couldn't stand to read through it all, there is a current work around for Unknown Reason -18 and I'm currently watching the Kernel that fixes this to make sure it's stable enough for MN release. This will address all market issues with the old market.

    Until someone can find out why the signature checking for 1.2 and Gapps is apparently so strict and or a way to work around it there's NOTHING that can be done to get Newer Market working all nice and perfect (without FCs and such) along with Network Location or Calendar syncing, short of grabbing sets of apps and trying them and hoping like hell you find a set that works.


    Kids Books issues are addressed with 4.5.18 so if you're not using at least 4.5.18 I don't want to hear bitching from this post on about how they're broken. They were broken the entire time in MN and it was just brought up as soon as I got a replacement SD Card and reader I immediately released an update for MN that addressed this problem.

    For those with missing apps in market this did the trick for me:

    STEPS:

    1) Already have your Google Account entered into the table & synced.
    Settings=> Accounts & sync => Add your account/Sync your account
    2) Run Android Market first by using your desktop icon or the applet grid panel choosing the Market app. When run it should produce a Market with missing apps when you search as is usual.
    3) Leave the Android Market program running & tap the Home button to go to the desktop.
    Replaces 4-6 = Nook Color Tools => All Settings => Manage Applications
    4) Tap the Menu button, then select the Settings option in the bottom bar that pops up.
    5) Select the Applications option
    6) Select the Manage applications option
    7) Select the Running TAB to show all running applications.
    8) Scroll down the list until you see Market, then select it.
    9) Tap on the Clear cache option button
    10) Tap on the Force stop option button. DO NOT tap on the Clear data button here under Market, it will break the process I believe!
    11) Tap on the Back button to go back to the entire list of running apps.
    12) Scroll the app list up until you see the Google Services Framework app & select it.
    13) Tap on the Clear data button here first, then tap on the OK button to confirm the action.
    13) Tap on the Force close button now.
    14) Now tap on the Back button or use the Home button to go back to the main desktop screen.
    15) If you have the Market app on your desktop, then tap on it to run it, or open the dockbar applet panel & run Market from there again.
    16) You should get an error box that has "Attention", then states that "An error has occurred. Please try again later."
    This is good & what seems should happen if all is going well.
    17) Now just hold down the On\Off button & then use the shut down menus to shut down the device normally.
    18) Now just turn the device back On normally, let it boot to the desktop ... when you get a working Wifi connection, try Market again ... hopefully if all went as it did for me many times, Market should work fully now & show apps that used to be missing! :D

    I found this solution on a forum called gadgetsandtablets

    Can some people give this updated version a try? Just install this after a fresh upgrade to 1.4.1, no need to install any prier version. I can’t possible test everything out, so I need people to report back with any problems that they run into.

    * This does include the program HomeCatcher.
    * It includes my flashplayer fix, so you should not run into any problems updating adobe flash or air.
    * This will install android market v. 2.12, but will then upgrade to the current one.
    * On first boot, make sure you select the zeam launcher as default.
    * This does NOT have the added kernel file.
    * Don’t consider this a released version.

    I came across something that was missing in the last file, live wallpapers were overlooked, and I did not find that out until tonight. Here is a link for that updated version, I also went ahead and pulled the updated superuser file, and put it into this version. No real need to update from the last one unless you would like to have live wallpapers.

    Also, another issue that I would be interested in finding out
    *The individuals that in past could not load MN 4.6.16 because of bootloops, and were stuck with 4.5.18, if this version works correctly?
