My wife has an unmodified HD+. I want to put it on CM 10.2.1 but she wasn't convinced so I bought a used one to experiment with. It's running great on 10.2.1 and I've load all her apps, pix and movies. Can I make a Nandroid of the modified Nook, boot hers into CWM, and restore the backup to her Nook? Or do I have to go thru the entire flashing process of CWM, CM10.2.1 and gaaps?

You should be able to just restore the nandroid. The only issue will be that both the original and cloned devices will have the same MACAddress and cannot connect to the same router at the same time. That is fixable by deleting one file on the cloned device. I don't remember which file exactly, but if you need to know, I will look it up.

Edit: rename this file on the device you restored the nandroid to:

/system/etc/firmware/ti-connectivity/wl1271-nvs.bin to .bak.

Then reboot and a new version will be built with the correct MACAddress.
