When you update a SASD install, it leaves your apps and settings in place.

Yes, CWM will prevent the 8-failed-boots recovery from working. It sounded like you were saying you thought CWM was interfering with your SD install, which it can't really do.

One way or another, the card is not getting set up properly. It has nothing to do with the stock firmware or what's in your recovery. In my experience, the majority of problems getting a SD install to boot come back to the card reader being used to write the image, with the runner up being corrupted downloads.

Are you using a dedicated SD or micro-SD reader, and not any kind of all-in-one device?

If none of the nightlies are working, it sounds like the installer is at fault and not the update files, so I would download a fresh copy of the disk image.

FYI, you can use your disk imaging program to backup your whole working SD install as an image, then restore it later the same way you originally wrote the installer image.

Just to clear up some of the numbers flying around,
  • Current B&N firmware version: 1.3
  • Current verygreen SASD installer version: 1.3 (unrelated coincidence!)
  • Last CyanogenMod stable release version: 7.0.3
  • CyanogenMod version under current development: 7.1
  • Current CM7 nightly build for the NC: #213. They're numbered sequentially, indicating the night on which they were released. Nightly #1 was released 213 days ago.
