Re: CM7 with Overdrive

I've finally gotten cm7 running. I thought I repartitioned the sd card so that I can use the 6g left on my 8g card. I tried to download the Overdrive app and got 'not enough room' this also happened when I tried to download a book with the Alkido app. Is there a way for me to tell if I partitioned it correctly while it's in the Nook? Or, how can I tell if I sideload the sd card? I don't want to mess anything up. I have a dozen or so other apps that seem to be working fine.

Re: CM7 with Overdrive

I use EASEUS Partition Magic to see the partitions. You can even resize them without redoing the whole card.

My Wife's Nook Doesn't have enough Fat32 space left on it to install the latest Nightly build so she is stuck with #112. Would I be able to use EASEUS Partition Magic to repartition her SD card leaving more FAT32 space left so I can do the nightly updates on her Nook again?

I Flashed the Internal ROM on my Nook so I just use ROM Manager to Flash mine. It works great. Since hers is still setup to dual boot, the only way I know to update her ROM is to download the latest nightly to her SD card and boot into recovery.

My 4th partition says it has 6.13g.  Isn't that the one that's supposed to be used by the apps?

Re: CM7 with Overdrive

This is a continuation of my last post:  My 4th partition says 6.13g

 

I'm running CM7 on an sd card...

 

When I sideload things - like books I've purchased from places other than B&N, photos, music, docs, etc.  How do I 'get to' the 4th partition?

 

Nook App -- can I run my purchased B&N Nook apps with the Nook App in CM7 ???  :smileyhappy: 

 

I really like the Astroware Solitare game better than the android apps I've found.

Re: CM7 with Overdrive

I believe that the Nook sideloads books to the first partition, so any sideloaded items will eat away all available boot memory. Im not sure if you can use the partition magic to enlarge that partition without wiping everything out. I would suggest not to sideload any book with a SD card boot set up. If you want to side load books, I would say you need to flash the emmc, or read sideloaded books from CM7 from the 4th partition only, not the nook. Of course I may be wrong.

[ Edited ]

You'll need (if you are doing this yourself)

 

1) a Sandisk Class 4 micro SD card (either 8 or 16 gigs)

 

2) an SD card reader for your PC

 

Read this discussion http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1000957 and check out other sections of the XDA

 

board. If you don't feel comfortable doing this yourself, there is a website where they sell pre done cards http://www.n2acards.com/

Come over to Facebook.com/CustomizingYourNookColor and RootMyNook.com ... we help people do it themselves who don't want to spend the $$ to have it rooted, but also offer a "root my Nook" program for those who don't feel comfortable doing it themselves!

 

Much better experience than booting from an SD card (like nook2android). It's incredible what a rooted Nook running CM7 can do!

What, exactly, makes it a "much better experience"?

OHH OHH Pick Me!

You can dual boot internally just like with a card, AND you can still use the card slot for expanded memory. You still maintain the stock interface (is that the right term?) too. Running cm7 internally is faster and smoother because you are not restrained by the max data transfer rate of the mSD card. Best to sample from an sd card before committing though. cm7 is not for everyone.

What he said :smileyhappy:

 

I initially tried CM7 on an SD card at first, and after seeing how awesome it was, switched over to an internal root. I'd never go back to stock!

Re: CM7 = WOW!

Is there a newer version of cm7 than 7.0.3? Also what are the nightly updates?

I see your point, but the internal memory has a max transfer rate too.  Has anyone done quantitative benchmarks of CM7 running from internal memory and various external cards?

Re: OHH OHH Pick Me!

I would say internal has more consistent or predictable performance, but there was no noticeable difference in speed between my SD install when it was stable and my subsequent internal install, and I've never seen meaningful benchmarks comparing the two--it's hard to get an apples and apples comparison, given the different layers of intermediary hardware one must go through to run a benchmark on either.

To be safe, I removed my dual-boot card before sideloading the 1.3 update. But after 1.3 is installed however you get it there, you can power down, reinsert your dual boot B&N internal CM7-from-SD micro SD card and it'll work as well as before. At least it does for my home-made dual boot CM7 card.

 

If you plan to wait for the wifi update to 1.3, it might be best to remove the dual boot card and stick with stock 1.2 until the download and installation is complete.
