So, back to what I'm really trying to write about here. I bought a NOOK HD+ a little while ago. If I find any hardware that I think is worth a lot more than it's selling for, I have a bad habit of buying it. Regardless of wither I need it at all. I have already been using it to review and backup pictures while out traveling, but now it's time for some fun. I have two things I want to try out.
- Firefox OS (Gecho)
- Ubuntu touch
As always, don't expect anything to happen to soon. But these projects should entertain me for quite a while.
I have cheated a little, and already started to look at this. So I have Ubuntu Touch running on the internal storage of the device. But it's an old build and the project seems to be discontinued, so I guess there is some work to do there. If anyone want to check it out the, more information can be fond on the wiki. The main image that is linked there seems to be deleted from the servers, so I used this instead. It boots, but there are some minor issues. But I guess it will help if I can port the new image.
But again, first I want to fix the dualboot.
After checking around a bit, it looks like U-Boot is used to boot from the SD-card, but a project called cyanoboot is used as a second stage bootloader and selection menu. Not CWM, as I mentioned earlier, sorry about that.
