Install CWM on Nook Tablet
Step 1) Use a free SDCard and add a 50 MB FAT 32 partition to it after creating a MSDOS partition table. Any SDCard larger than 50MB should work. Make sure to turn-on/enable the boot and ida flags. You can add other partitions if desired but they are not necessary for this procedure. Tools like GParted or some other free partitioning tool can be used to do this.
Step 3) Eject the Sdcard from your computer.
Step 4) Turn-off your Nook Tablet and insert the Sdcard that you just created.
Step 5) Turn-on the Nook Tablet and you should be in CWM!
Step 6) (Optional) Now insert a larger SDCard in to the Nook Tablet to make a backup.
For more details and feature updates regarding the installation of CWM refer to the original thread at the XDA forums. If you own any Nook device and interested in rooting or learning new hacks, tips&tricks for this amazing device then don’t forget to visit the Nook section on our website!
