    *Note according to micro SD card tests on the XDA forum choosing a card with a high small block Random Write speed (QD32) may result in performance increases in running bootable ROMs from a micro SD card while cards with poor QD32 performance may have issues with speed and force closing. For further information check this thread here xda-developers - View Single Post - SD Strange-results - or - How I learned to love CM7 on SD - Dec-11 results compiled! and the table listing tested QD32 speeds https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/...lRDJQTEE#gid=0.

    First impressions of CM7 stable are great! This really gives you a tablet feeling and very much takes on the feeling of honeycomb in that regard. Runnung a 4GB Class 10 SD card and multitasking/switching tasks is slow but runs great once you are in the apps.

    I can see why so many people are happy with CM7 and this is a great way to try it out or have your tablet system and keep autonooter on eMMC for Nook functions.

    I have a 16gb class 6 Transcend coming in the mail soon. I may try to run CM7 from the card and use my autonooter on the emmc. It just all depends on how smooth cm7 runs from the class 6 card though.

    Hi,

    Stupid noob question. Can I use the remaining space of the SD card to store files/vids/etc? Do I need to partition it first?

    Thanks.

    No need to partition the "Size Agnostic" CM7 SD rom will leave the rest of the SD available for storage.

    How do you apply an overclock kernel to a bootable SD? I know CM& runs at 925, but how do we apply the latest updates from dalingren?

    edit: nevermind. i found there is a kernel designed specifically for the SD.

    should i wipe dalvik cache and cache partition before wiping this? Wouldn't that affect my emmc instead of the sd card setup?

    Yes, use the kernels for SD and no, don't wipe anything. Everything is contained on the SD and you are correct that wiping would only wipe eMMC.

    From the XDA thread, verygreen explains it. I have added the emphasis in bold.

    OC Kernel installation instructions:
    After you have a running CM7 by doing the steps above.
    Get CM7 OC kernel from Dalingrin's thread. Unpack the zip file, the result should be a file with the name "kernel" and some other stuff. Rename the kernel file to uImage.
    Shutdown your nook and take the uSD card out (make sure the nook is not plugged into USB bus or it'll boot into eMMC then).
    Plug the SD Card into the computer, copy uImage file you just created to the first partition (the partition name would be "boot") instead of the existing file with this name (might want to save the original file just in case).
    Now you are ready to go again.
    You'll need to repeat these steps every time you upgrade to a new nightly build, because they carry their own kernels with them.

    I haven't tried it yet myself and not sure if I will geven that the limiting factor is probably the SD card more than the kernel speed in this case. You might want to run some bench marks before and after and see if you notice a difference.
