Default [Q] Won't boot after successful CM 10.2 install

First off, thanks for all the great information on this site. It has gotten much mileage out of our Nook Color.

Now, the issue. I installed the latest cyanogenmod 10.2 nightly and it worked great. I installed some apps, rebooted, and all was well. Installed some more, rebooted and now I'm stuck at the cyanogenmod boot animation. I did force hardware acceleration in 2D (or whatever that option is called) to see if it helped some games... could that be it? I tried clearing cache and dalvik cache and it "optimized", then stuck on the screen again.

What are my options here? I really don't want to go through loading apps all over again. Any help is appreciated!
