Seeking Unroot and Root Guidance, Please Help
Posted 02 January 2012 - 03:27 AM
He said it worked smoothly, no issues. But the end result is some awkward hybrid of the nook stock and what I believe is Honeycomb (can't confirm because the only place I am seeing "about" for a version is giving me the nook 1.2 version). Because of this weird hybrid I have encountered certain things I am unable to use such as Netflix and certain other apps that apparently don't like Nook.
I am a noob to rooting devices. What I am hoping to do is unroot and restore to stock, then start over and setup a dual boot of Nook 1.4 and CM7. Is this possible at this point or did the previous root hose me on this somehow? I have searched around and was not able to find answers that seemed clearcut for my situation.
I see at the youtube link below that supposedly the dual boot with nook 1.4 can be done, I was just hoping for a clear walkthrough on how to unroot my nook and set it up a dual boot with guidelines similar to LockerGnome's because that looks like clearcut easy to follow instructions.

I am not sure about 1.4.1 however I rooted my nook color this way using the guidance from Crash Tech Dummies. It was pretty easy to do and the guys were pretty thorough on how the process works. My nook color was 1.3 and if I remove the SD card my nook color will boot into the stock OS.
at the youtube site, look up crash tech dummies.

One downer to dual-booting is that you can't really set up shared storage easily. The boot partition on the SD card, usually small (~119 MB) is seen by the B&N firmware as your SD card. This can cause problems with some apps that expect a full SD to use. You can experiment with making the boot partition larger, but that won't be seen as storage by CM either. I'd suggest 2 SD cards, one to boot into CM with, and the other for stock B&N storage.
If you're not heavily into B&N content -- enhanced books, magazine and newspaper subscriptions -- I'd go with CM on eMMC (internal). It's much simpler.

But for the SD card CM7 I'm wanting some clarification about the partitions:
If I have two partitions:
A: has CM7 on it, but also is what Nook stock will try to use for storage
B: Is this what CM7 will use for storage? Can CM7 use any storage on the Nook itself?
