Default Idiotic problem

Hey all, I bought a rooted/CM modded Nook Color and honestly wasn't digging the performance so I decided to sell it. In a very stupid fashion I went and did a factory reset of my personal info through the normal means inside of Android, not considering the implications.

For an hour now I've been stuck on a screen with the angry looking blue dude with the arrow around him and "Cyanogenmod" beneath that in white text. The arrow is moving and stopping intermittently.

Should I hard boot somehow? Should I pull the SD card and let it boot into normal nook mode? Should I let it sit and do its thing? I'd like to get it back to where it was with Android on so it'll be more salable.

Edit: powered down and powered up; went into Android just fine. Only problem is that it did not actually reset to factory settings and is still logged in as me. How can I clear it for safe sale?

it depends on whether you have CM installed on SD or emmc. If you take the SD out, what does it boot to?

Without the SD card in it boots into straight Nook OS.

I just want to reset Andriod OS to a state that I can safely sell the device in.

Thank you, please get back to me asap, trying to sell today.

All of your personal data should be on the SD, so just remove and sell it without the SD. Be sure to erase and deregister the stock OS so that it is released from the B&N servers so the next person can register it.
