Default Best "light" reliable ROM for the NOOK HD+?

Alright so I know there are many many topics on custom roms for the Nook HD+.

Some of the instructions for installing the rom seems so complicated. Is there any step by step guides to follow or youtube videos on how to install it on to the Nook HD+?

Thanks in advance!!!

#1 - REGISTER your Nook with B&N, BEFORE you remove the old software.

Well, there's this "Dummies" guide for EMMC that will COMPLETELY remove the Stock B&N software, then there's the "Hybrid/SD Card" method , that will keep the B&N stock and add a dual boot option with CM 10.1.

CyanogenMod 10.1 is based on Gogle's Jelly Bean OS for mobile devices, modified to run on a number of devices, including our Nook HD/HD+.

I'm using the Nightly CM 10.1, and it runs better than the stock software, there are other ROM available, but I've never tried them so I can't offer any opinion on them.

Following the Dummies guide by e.mote, is simple and straight forward, read the instructions, then read them again, download the required tools and software and you'll be running CM10.1 in a few minutes.

Good Luck, and enjoy your improved tablet!

The "Dummies Guide" thread has a step by step guide with the files listed, and the tools needed to use them. You will almost always want the latest files, except for the ones labeled "Experimental" - those are often for the people who WANT to test and understand they MIGHT cause crashes and have major bugs.

e.mote did an awesome job of organizing the steps and files needed, I would not be able to provide and better or easier guide.

The file names are above the links, look for the files of the same name.

EMMC - NIGHTLY is 20130812, these are built every night, hence the name. I'm using the first official nightly without any problems - 20130809.

CWM - NookHDplus-bootable-CWM-6028-for-stock-4GB-rev4-(05.15.13).zip - is the file you want.

Hope this helps a little.

I have to second this Carbon works great. I do also have a boot-able CM10.1 SD card just so I can mix things up but I spend 95% of my time in Carbon.

Is installing CM10.1 on the emmc faster than sd?
I have an sd bootable cm10.1 is use now and it lags about the speed of a 2010 phone.

I also haven't updated since may, but its just so slow that nobody in my family can bear its "laggyness"

Depends on the SD you are using. It can be faster. And that ROM is old so a newer one could be faster.

I've only used the EMMC method, it seemed to be the easiest way, since I didn't care for the B&N software. I can't tell much (if any) of a speed difference from 20130711 Unofficial, to the 20130809 Nightly I'm using now, but I doubt there have been THAT many changes that would boost or slow speed in that time frame.

I've also NEVER felt like it was lagging or slow, but this is my first tablet and I didn't expect it to run like my Asus Intel I5 laptop, it does boot much faster however.
