When you soft brick your phone you see only "phone -warning triangle- computer" when you power your phone. There is nothing to do, the phone wont be recognized in any platform or program then Odin.
In Odin with installed nexus galaxy driver in windows you can se that the phone is connected. But you cant flash it or do odin restore.

The solution:
On windows xp with installed nexus galaxy drivers.

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




Your Nexus Galaxy is back to track…..

PS: your phone whil boot whith dead android picture.. DONT do anything it whil reboot after 3-5 minutes by its self..

Fastest solution

lol necro bump

While we're on topic though, I don't know how you would manage to loose access to the bootloader (just push up+down volume + power). Then you can use fastboot to restore the factory images from here:

https://developers.google.com/android/nexus/images

This way is recommended and safer IMO

I downloaded odin 3 v1.85. I am unable to open it in my system. I'm using Windows 7 64 bit.
But I am able to open Odin 3 v3.07. Is it Ok to use this version to unbrick?

Yes, it does not matter. You can use 3.07.
