    This thread contains the instructions for creating a bootable SD card for running custom CyanogenMod ROMs. This leaves your internal device alone if you want don't want to root it or install a ROM over it (and preserve the warranty).

    Sorry about that I intended to have this organized similar to the Nook Color. Unfortunately I have been unable to get to this as a side project. On top of that the resources for the Nook Tablet have never been as available or organized as for the Nook Color which would have required even more effort to pull it all together.

    The resources are out there and the Nook Tablet is as easy to work with as the Nook Color at this point. Both move very quickly since they are popular with the developers and it would be impossible to keep up with all of the changes on this site by myself. I have updated the OP with the XDA resource though. Feel free to explore and then share what you find here for others since XDA is for the tech savvy.

    Make the NT rock and install Jelly Bean boot via microSD in 10 easy steps:


    1) Format a good SD card of at least 4GB in size (A good SD card should have a formatted Crystal disk 4k QD32 write of 1 or greater.) I found the 16gb G.Skill Cl10 cards from newegg were great - QD32 1.4.


    2) Download the rather stable cm10-121208_acclaim_sd_hd_img.rar and extract the image file using 7-zip.


    3) Write the extracted image to the SD card using win32diskimager. Make sure you are writing to the SD card and not to some other portable drive or SSD on your PC!


    4) Open MiniTool Partition Wizard and you should see your PC's partition(s) (leave these alone) and 5 partitions including the unused partition on the microSD card.


    5) Delete Partition 4 (Fat 32 SDCARd) and hit Apply


    6) Delete the Other partition ~600mb and hit Apply (Neither of those two partitions had any files in them. DO NOT delete the 1st or second partitions which both have the necessary files already inside.)


    7) Create a new partition called DATA and select Primary and Ext 4. Make the size 1-4GB (or more) depending on app usage. This is where apps will install. It you are an app hog, them go with 4GB. I went with 2.5GB. Hit Apply.


    8) Create a new partition called SDCARD and select Primary and FAT32. The size should be the remaining card space by default - leave it this way. Hit Apply.


    9) Close the Partition Wizard, remove the microSD card and place it in the NT that is currently turned off (it needs to be off and not in the sleep state).


    10) Turn the NT on and welcome to Jelly Bean. (If you reboot it will go back to stock NT. If you turn it off and then on it will boot Jelly Bean.) Enjoy!

    Note> some NT's need to be plugged into a powered usb in order to boot to an sd card.
