ok hoping you guys can help. I've tried this many times. I've tried it with nook software 1.2 and 1.3. 1.3 gz image on my desktop as well as in the root drive of my computer. tried both latest stable as well as nightlies 206, 207, 209 and 211. I've tried with the gapps and without. each and every time I do all this It shuts down after installing and I reboot. After reboot I get a green bar the say cyanagen (sp?). Then it goes to the android on the skateboard, the blue circle run around it 4 to 5 times then screen goes black and the blue skateboard android comes back in. it does this over and over and over and is what I'm calling bootloop.
I'm using an ADATA 16g class 10 card.
Am I doing something wrong. I have another card on the way sandisk this time trying to fix this issue?
any help would be greatly appreaciated!
I am using a SanDisk 4GB class 4 SD card. After many post readings and fiddlings, I have gotten it to the bootloop stage. I can get it to a blank screen after it displayes the cyanogen logo, I can get it to say something like 'loading to boot' and have it shut off without ever booting. I can even get it to go all the way to the blue android on the skateboard endlessly looping, but not any further. I have tried fiddling with easus settings, I have tried different combos of images and roms. I am greatly frustrated and annoyed, rooting my Droid 4 wasn't nearly this difficult! I have been working on and off on this since I got my nook a year ago, and am about to give up and just go by an android tablet. This blog http://taosaur.blogspot.com/2011/09/running-cyanogenmod-7-from-sd-nook.html has been a great help in some regards, http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?p=25354258#post25354258 has been too. I really would appreciate a nudge in the right direction.
When I format my card using generic-sdcard-v1.3.img, I then add cm-7.2.0-encore. I insert it in my nook color I get a message that a file needs to be installed updatei-cm ****.zip on the SD card. It says the file can be downloaded from nook.linuxhacker.ru, well I see no files there. Who has the file and can someone be so king of giving me a screenshot of their working SD card. Thank you.
You can do what the previous user advised and go to that link to get the newest image file that I modified, but the cause of problem you are having is that the newest cm zips are not named so that the old image will recognize them. Just rename the cm-7.2.0-encore.zip to update-cm-7.2.0-encore.zip and try again.When I format my card using generic-sdcard-v1.3.img, I then add cm-7.2.0-encore.

Sometimes something so simple can be so difficult. vice versa. What I learned, was that I could rename the Cyanogen Mod Nightly builds with an "update-" = the filename and that would fix my problem.
I can't. This thread belongs to verygreen.
I thought I would share something that I finally figured out. I have been trying to find a way to mount the sd card boot partition without removing the card or booting to emmc. I wanted to do this so that I could download the nightly on the nook and put it directly in the boot partition. I figured out a way and it works great.
Use a root file manager to create a new folder in /data. I called mine sdboot. Then create a blank text file. I named mine 19mountsdboot (with no .txt on the end!). Then I put the following text in it and saved it:
# mount SD boot partition
busybox mount -t vfat /dev/block/mmcblk1p1 /data/sdboot;
Copy that new file to the /etc/init.d folder using your root file manager. Change the permissions to match the other files there. Now reboot the nook.
When finished booting, you should be able to use your root file manager to go to /data/sdboot. And you should see your boot files there. (Don't mess with them.)
Now you can copy the nightly zip there. Then reboot to the verygreen recovery and your nightly should install.
All this without taking the card out or booting to emmc or hooking up to your PC. And it should stay that way even after flashing new nightlies to the sd.
Edit: I attached the file here in case people were having trouble getting it right. Just unrar and put in the /etc/init.d folder and change permissions. You still need to create the folder in /data first.
EDIT 2: I just modified the file to automatically create the directory and mount it. Just unrar and put the file in /etc/init.d folder and fix permissions. No need to create the new folder. Or better yet, I created a flashable install zip that does everything for you. You only need to flash it once (for SD installs). It will survive flashing of new SD nightlies. It can also be flashed to emmc and will mount the SD boot partition, but only if an SD install SD is in the slot. It will recognize an ordinary SD and not try to mount the SD boot partition. However, if you want to keep this on emmc, reflash after every emmc nightly flash.
EDIT 3: Just found a problem with the install zip. Needed to have the permissions set properly. Should be all fixed now. Use the rev. 1 zip
EDIT 4 (6-13-12): Added Rev 2 of the script and install zip. Rev 2 adds a symlink to the root directory so that 'sdboot' shows up in the root directory as well as in /data/sdboot. You can manually install the script to the /system/etc/init.d folder. Just unrar it and put it in that folder and set the permissions to execute. If you do not feel comfortable manually installing the script, put the zip in the root partition and reboot to recovery and it will install it automatically for you. And you do not have to re-flash again after a new ROM flash. (If you previously had installed a prior version to /data/local/init.d, manually remove it before you flash the new version. If you don't you will have two copies on your system and that sometimes causes Root Explorer to lock up.) This version works great to direct download your new zip to sdboot with the new Goo Manager. Just change Goo Manager's download directory to /sdboot/ and it will put it on your boot partition.
Just take the card out of the nook and put it in your PC. Copy that zip to it, take it back out, put in the Nook. Reboot. When the first tiny flash on the screen happens, hold the n key until the boot menu comes up. Choose SD and recovery and finish booting. The script installer will install it. Then reboot and the sdboot directory should show up in the root directory. You should never have to take the card out again to install new software. Just copy your installation zip directly to the boot partition (sdboot) while the card is still in the Nook. Then reboot like I described above to install it.
Edit: now I see how you were confused. I had a typo in my instructions where I said 'root partition' when I meant 'boot partition'. Corrected typo.

Had a feeling that's what u meant, but didn't want to screw anything up (which for me isn't hard lol). OK, I'm all set up, and everything looks good. I do have one question, when I go to goo manager to download the latest nightly, it only has up to the 20121117. I'm running 20121118 ,and when I look for updates it says there aren't any. Does it not show the latest or am I just not doing something right?
