    Just a Quick question,. about the [Win 32Disk Imager] What exactly does it take to get that (win 7x64). I'm currently in the process of installing Qt SDK [full] so I can use the {Win32Diskimager source} (mostly because I couldn't find another win32 disk Imager) Or am I just going down the wrong trail here?

    I already have the 3 files in the guide, & I don't want to be wasting to much time.

    You should be able to run win32diskimager on Win 7 x 64 (that is what I have). Just download from here https://launchpad.net/win32-image-writer/ download and unzip. Also unpack the image file you downloaded. Then right click the win32 .exe file and select run as administrator. Select the drive that is your SD card from the drop down menu and select the image file to burn.

    Once the image finishes writing you need to use a partition tool to make the boot partition about 250MB then copy the CM7 and Gapps files to the boot partition. Safely eject the SD card, insert into a the powered down Nook and power up.

    Those 28 steps make it look more forbidding than it needs to be, though.

    Only the first 9 are specifically building the card.

    The rest is the basic process of getting an general android system up and running, including access to Google Play.

    Its an excellent set of instructions for the procedure ~ I wish I had a set of instructions that clear when I first did it ~ but breaking them up into two or three phases would make it less daunting to a first timer.
