Updated my Nook Color to CyanogenMod 7.2.0.
The Nook Color that I got during the holidays is still running great off the Sandisk 4GB SD card. Plans to put CM7 on the internal eMMC have stayed on the todo list, never can quite find the time.
CM7 version 7.2.0 was released as stable on June 15, 2012. Over the weekend I found the time to update the Nook Color, it turned out to be a rather painless operation.
CM7 version 7.1.0 to 7.2.0 update on SD card:
- Use Titanium Backup to backup the Nook, as a precaution.
- Hook the Nook up via USB to the computer and copy off the backup files.
- Power down the Nook and remove the SD card from it’s slot.
- Place SD card into computer’s USB port, adapter may be needed.
- Download cm-7.2.0-encore.zip and rename to update-cm-7.2.0-encore-signed.zip.
- Copy update-cm-7.2.0-encore-signed.zip to the SD card’s root.
- Place the the SD card back into the Nook and power it back up.
- Press the power button, press Reboot, press Recovery, then OK.
That’s it, the Nook Color will reboot and start the update process, which takes but a few minutes. After the update process is complete the Nook will power off, just press the power button and you’re booting into a faster CM7 version 7.2.0.
Where is my love life?
Where can it be?
There must be something wrong with the machinery
