I had my HD+ unrooted on stock for week and could not stand the speed. Apps crashing constantly, extremely sluggish behavior; I couldn't stand it. I didn't have a micro to full size SD card adapter, so I ordered one of off Amazon. I rooted and then tried every ROM available for our Nooks. I think CM11 runs best.
Rooted B&N Nook HD+ with Succulent's 7/2/14 CM11

Whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.
Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who has no need to be ashamed, rightly handling the word of truth.
]For I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God that brings salvation to everyone who believes: first to the Jew, then to the Gentile.
