    Hi, I'm new here. I've been a member of droid forums for a while and came over after reading about the nook. I finally pulled the trigger, bought it, and rooted it right away. However, flashing roms on this seems to be a lot more difficult than it is with my d1 and d2. I read around but am still having trouble.

    I have CWM 3.0.0.5. I downloaded phiremod v2, put it on the root of my sd card, wiped, and tried to flash it through CWM, and it keeps on aborting. What could be the issue?

    Also, are there any other roms that I can flash using CWM, without having to have an extra sd card?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated

    Welcome. :)

    hmm.......
    -Are you trying to flash the rom from inside CWR Rom manager app?
    -Did you extract the rom zip file?
    -Describe the aborting?

    Hi there, you don't need an extra SD card for the ROMs some people just prefer one for back ups and one for flasing. As far as your issue you should verfiy that you have a good downlaod of the zip file (MD5 check). That could cause the problem you are experiencing.

    Good thinking JP. I may be over analyzing this one; it could be as simple as a bad file download. :)

    thanks for the responses. I was trying to install through recovery. This time i tried installing again, but through rom manager, and it seemed to go through. How can I tell if it actually worked?

    Sorry I wasn't clear, I was asking if you were installing from rom mamager b/c you shouldn't if you were. Only flash (install) roms, kernels, etc. from outside the operating system in CWR.

    I guess I'll try to redownload it. Just so I'm clear, I can redownload it, put it on the root of my sd card, reboot into clockword, wipe data, then select the zip and flash? Am I missing something? How will I know if it was flashed properly?

    I think you have it right, make sure to wipe the cache and davlik cache (sometimes this hangs but just reboot into CWR and try again). After selecting the zip reboot and you will know you did it right if you boot up into ADW launcher. If you are using a bootable CWR on the SD make sure to take it out after flashing the zip before powering back up.

    It was aborted again when I tried to install. It says

    "assert failed: get prop("ro.product.device") =="encore" ll get prop ("ro.build.product") =="encore" ll getprop (ro.product.board")=="encore"
    E: Error in /sdcard/phiremod-nook-V2.zip
    (Status 7)
    Installation Aborted


    What does this mean?

    We have a very good thread on this rom with many great tips and observations, I recommend people give it a read before flashing.

    thanks for the reply. I had read that thread before and still ahd some issues. Nookie froyo worked on the first try, so I think I'm just going to stick with that for now. ALl I'm really after is the android experience with flash. Any other extras I don't really need, at least not until I become more well versed in all of this

    After 20 or so minutes of sleepy research, Status 7 means mismatch between the zip file and the device.

    So... you either have the wrong zip file, a bad zip file or wrong version of CWR installed.
    phiremod-nook-V2.zip (87.28 MB)

    Did you install this CWR: recovery-clockwork-3.0.0.5-nookcolor.zip

    yea I downloaded clockwork from that thread, and followed the directions. I also downloaded phiremod from the page over at XDA. I installed nookie froyo, but the market doesn't come loaded on it, so doing anything with it is going to be cumbersome since I have to install everything through adb and even then there are still tons of issues. This is starting to get really disappointing. I would like phiremod since I understand it comes with the market, but I can't get it to install for some reason

    Just to clarify, are you trying to install the phiremod that is based off of CM7 nightly? If you are, then you have to follow my instructions and install using a bootable SD with CWR v3.0.0.6, and not use v3.0.0.5. The errors you were getting I think are the result of having the older CWR and trying to install the newer phiremod. If I am assuming wrong, ignore this. If I am on track, please let me know and I can help you through it. :)

    Ohhhhhhh, after you told me to double check i realized I've been downloading V2 and not beta 2, which is the one I want. I'll give that a go and report back! Got my fingers crossed!
