    How to Make a Bootable CWM SD Card-PC

    PLEASE NOTE
    This is only for a 2GB SD card

    First, you need a few programs- Winimage, and Winrar.
    Winimage can be found here- Download WinImage
    Winrar is at- WinRAR archiver, a powerful tool to process RAR and ZIP files
    For the RAR you can also use 7zip Download 7zip from FileHippo

    Once you have these installed, the next step is to download the 2GB Clockwork rar, which is an older version-3.0.2.8 from here- MEGAUPLOAD - The leading online storage and file delivery service

    -Unzip the CW rar on your computer, I usually create a new desktop folder for that.
    -Put your 2GB card into a card reader.
    -Open winimage by right-clicking on the application and running as administrator.
    -Select disk, then restore virtual hard disk image on physical drive. Make sure you select the proper drive, it should say something like flashreader.
    -Then you have to navigate to the location of your unzipped image.
    -Select all files, and it will appear. Finally, a warning that you are going to erase all files and format the disk pops up, say yes.
    It takes a little while, and has a progress meter.

    When complete, you now have to change some files to make it compatible with the new Nook OS, 1.2 &1.3, by updating the CWM from 3.0.2.8 to 3.2.0.1.
    Download the files here- MEGAUPLOAD - The leading online storage and file delivery service

    Unzip this, you will see mlo, u-boot.bin, uImage, and uRamdisk. If you look at the sd card you burned the image to, you will see the same file names. Create a folder on the card, name it something like oldcwm, and move those files on the card into it. Now copy the newer ones onto your card. Eject the card, insert into your Nook, and power on.

    You will enter CWM, which lets you do many things, including installing roms in zip format, clearing cache, making a nandroid backup, and many more options.

    Actually, no I didn't, this last week was crazy at work, had to cancel the entire week's piano moves due to flood damage to our truck and at storage. Rescheduling was a pain, but it's finally done. Thanks for cleaning it up, it looks much better and makes more sense now. Let's hope we can get this section more active.
