Having trouble doing anything with my nook hd+, i have it running on cm 10.2. the problem is that after i tried updating twrp from 2.6.xx to 2.7 with the flashify app it i rebooted it to try it out but instead of booting it got stuck in a boot loop. it powers on for about 3 secs and cuts back off and continues doing this until i hold down the power button and turn it off. i have tried everything i could think of but nothing works!! if anyone could help that would be great. ps im new to most of this

Holding power + home doesn't bring up recovery either?

You'd then need to adb flash the recovery or make an sdcard bootable and put the sdcard recovery on there which would then be started by the device and then you can fix from there. Go with the one you have already available first.

no ive tried holding power + home but all it does is turn off the nook and i have tried using a bootable sd card but the nook doesnt seem to want to boot up on that either. As of using adb i have tried to use it but it will not connect to the device for me to flash anything to it. It may be to my lack of experience using adb or fastboot.

You are holding power too long. Hold power and n together for a few seconds releasing power first followed by releasing n. It should boot to recovery (either stock or CWM).

Your emmc is messed up. I suggest you go to my HD/HD+ CWM thread and make a new bootable CWM SD per item 1a and then use that to install a plain stock zip from item 6. That should repair the files on emmc and you can start over with CM11.

If you mess up the internal emmc recovery, your nook will behave exactly as described.
(trust me, I've been there).

The cure is to (re)flash a working recovery from a sdcard recovery.
Some people complain that it's hard to get their device to boot from sdcard.
Sometimes it helps to plug in your nook to entice it to boot from sd.
