Default nook hd + help please.. I think I bricked it..sorry for being such a noob

Sorry for being such a noob. I bought a nook hd + looks like it had twrp on it. I tried to factory default it a messed it up. I got it to boot into cwm recovery I think. It installed the extras zip and unknown sources zip but when I tried to install the cwm zip it failed.. it was previously stuck on thecyanoboot universal loader screen. I dont know what to do.im u sure 8f 7 br7cked it or erased the os o it. I dont know what to do. Please any help will be appreciated greatly.

Looking through the book HD forums I doubt you are bricked, but without ever using one myself I'd rather not try to give you the appropriate steps. Rather I would suggest to ask in the q&a forum here
http://forum.xda-developers.com/nook-hd/help
There are also rooting guides in the developer section of this forum that look like you will just need to do a few steps to get up and running again.
Just read through and if you are uncertain how to proceed best to ask first
Best of luck!

Thanks for the info. I was looking around and I was wondering if there is a way to determine if my eemc (whatever that is) is dead. I sincerely apologize for being such a noob. I previously rooted a nook hd+ from stock by using cwm without an problems, but i was still very nervous about doing it. I have no experience with twrp that was on this nook hd+, and my plan was to wipe it and get it back onto stock. and then use cwm to reroot it. but of course i screwed it up. Here is exactly what happens when I power the NHD+ (Nook hd+):

power on (with the bootable sd card i made from the previously successful rooted nook on stock)

nook logo
cyanoboot universal boot loader

then it goes right into cwm-based recovery v6.0.208 for hd+ (stock)
my available choices are:

- reboot system now
-install zip from sdcard
-install zip from sideload
-wipe data/factory reset
-wipe cache partition
-backup and restore
-mounts and storage
-advanced

and at the bottom of the screen i see

cwm-based recovery v6.0.208 for hd+ (stock)

is this a bad thing???

Also I dont know if this makes any difference when I reboot the NHD+ without the sdcard in i pretty much see the same available choices but the only difference is the info at the top and bottom of the screen. without the sdcard in i see:

EMMC cwm-based recovery v6.0.3.6 is at the top

EMMC cwm-based recovery v6.0.3.6
Warning: No file_contexts

What does this even mean???

Am I up the $#!+ creek??

Thanks for any advice and insight.
