Barnes & Noble’s Nook Color – Steps to Install Cyanogen Mod 7.1 Custom Firmware

Procedure to Gain Root Access in Nook Color:

  • First up you need to power Off the B&N Nook color. Just in case the device is connected to the computer you will have to disconnect the same.
  • After this you now need to insert the newly setup uNooted SD Card into the Nook color and then connect the device to the computer using the USB Cable which you got at the time of purchase. As soon as you connect the Nook color to the computer, this will trigger the Nook color to power ON, please note that the screen will remain off and will allow the uNooter to root the device.
  • So, now after a minute the computer will see a new USB drive. Please note that in Windows if it prompts for the missing drivers then just cancel the same, in Linux the Nook color will show up in the computer as a RNDIS Ethernet device which you can ignore it and in the Mac OS X the Nook color will show up as an additional Ethernet device. Just cancel when you see the dialog box pop up.
  • So once you are done with the above step, you will have to disconnect the Nook color from the computer and it may restart by itself. Just in case if it restarts normally then continue to the next step and if it doesn’t then you need to again remove the SD Card and power back to the Normal mode.

Now, at this point of time the Nook color will be rooted successfully and you are now ready to proceed to the next step which is mentioned in the next page.

Procedure to install the Custom Recovery:

  • First up you will have to download and install the ROM Manager application from the Android Market Place and then open the ROM Manager application which is installed in your nook color.
  • Once you open the ROM MANAGER application, select “Flash Clockwork Mod Recovery” and then click on the Barnes & Nook color and then give the ROM Manager the root permission just in case if it prompts you.
  • Just in case if it hangs then you need to just allow the application to “Force Close” and then repeat he above steps again.

So, as soon as it’s flashed successfully the message will be mentioned as “Successfully flashed Clockwork Mod recovery” after which just click on the “Ok” tab as the CWM recovery will be successfully installed on the nook color.
