There should also be an option in the command line version of heimdall to get rid of that screen and get the phone to boot normally. Don't know if it will work on the nexus but I know it worked when I had a Fascinate.

Odin flashing, flashing stock images, bootloaders nothing work for my awkwardly bricked GSM nexus. If I try to flash a stock image, when I type in fastboot reboot-bootlader to reboot, my screen goes to a gray, gradient burnt looking image, then slowly fades to black and doesn't flash it at all. Using Odin, still stuck at pretty Google logo lol It's not really bricked per say, as I can get into fastboot mode, (no recovery without a million file doesn't exist errors, so no flashing roms or nandroids) but in fastboot mode, it won't take flashing stock images, bootloader.img, recovery.img nothin. When it tries, just gets the gray screen of death

HELP!! I have a VZW SGN unlocked and rooted running Axiom crossbreed rom today I kept getting this pop up saying I had a system update.. I kept clicking to remind me later because I know you cant do the update over a custom rom.. So Im in the middle of a text message and the screen goes black and my phone is now in a boot loop.. I tried to remedy this thru fastboot and in CWM reflashing the rom wiping data everything my last resort was Odin, which I tried but it hung at <ID:0/007> NAND Write Start!! after 10 or more minutes I removed usb and did a batt pull now I am only left with ONE screen and thats phone icon, yellow triangle with a ! in the middle and computer icon.. No matter what I do thats the ONLY screen I have.. So after MANY hours of research and reading I found this to try>
1. Start Odin 3 v1.85
2. For PDA choose CF-Root-GGN_YAKJU_ICL53F-v5.1 (google and download it)
3. Power your Nexus Galaxy ( screen shows "phone- warning- computer") and connect it to you're PC.
4. START

It acts like its doing something there a blue full line bar under the phone icon yellow triangle with the ! in the middle and computer icon now.. and on the Odin box where it should be GREEN and say PASS its GREEN but only says BOOT and this is what its saying below that> <ID:0/007> Added!!
<ID:0/007> Odin v.3 engine (ID:7)..
<ID:0/007> File analysis..
<ID:0/007> SetupConnection..
<ID:0/007> Initialzation..
<ID:0/007> Get PIT for mapping..
<ID:0/007> Firmware update start..
<ID:0/007> boot.img
<ID:0/007> NAND Write Start!! < Once again hanging here.. Cant someone PLEASE for all the tea in China help me out b4 they have to sedate me and haul me off in a white jacket!!
Thanks :(

That is a GSM file, not a Verizon file. That's the first problem.

For Verizon cdma

Check the PDA line and put this file in it
"VzW-PDA-ODIN-I515EL03_ICL53F_signed"

Check the phone line and put this file in it
"VzW-PHONE-ODIN-SCH-I515.EK02_LTE"

You should be able to google up those files easily (since I don't have hosting space these days).

You need both of those files, 1 will not do and will bork you worse than you are now.

I have both of those files and have been trying relentless to get it to work but Odin hangs at (NAND Write Stop!!) every time I know the bootloader img is in the pda but is there one maybe separate does anyone know was thinking if I can atleast try that too..

Obviously Im not the one with reading issues, I was referring to the ROOT file.. Is there a reason for the rudeness really? Just trying to get my phone working again that's all
