The SD card on the Barnes & Noble Nook Tablet is more important than it is on most other devices. From the SD card, you can boot Android, unbrick your Nook Tablet, and perform a number of other impressive things. XDA Forum Member meghd00t has released a method that will not only help unfortunate users unbrick their devices using the SD card, but has also added some functionality that provides a 12GB media partition to use for things like music and video.
The steps aren’t too difficult and the process itself shouldn’t take too long, but users who go this route should definitely be sure to read the full instructions to make sure nothing gets messed up. The defining feature of the method is that it does not require ADB in order to unbrick the Nook Tablet. In the words of the developer:
simple no adb required
follows B&N partition table properly
keeps the Nook serial and other Information
small size (actually the only new file here is only 5MB)
should work will all 8GB & 16GB tablets
Of course, as always, there are some negatives to the process, including:
inflexible about the 1.4.2 upgrade (otherwise no 8GB support)
you will get my chosen 12GB media partition, but I have given you all the tools to make your own
If those things don’t bother you, though, head on over to the modification thread for additional information, the full method, and a full explanation of what the process does._________
