Default Galaxy Nexus Back to Stock with No USB

Galaxy Nexus(Verizon CDMA)
ICS 4.0.4
Build number: IMM30B
Unlocked
Not rooted

I was hoping someone here might be able to help me with my Galaxy Nexus. My Mac, PC, or Linux box won't recognize my phone anymore. I've tried multiple battery pulls, cords, driver updates(Windows 7), an have wiped the phone. My Nexus 7 is recognized by all 3 PCs so it seems like a phone issue.

When I first got the phone, it had 4.0.2 on it but the battery life was horrendous so I manually flashed 4.0.4 IMM30B instead of waiting for the official OTA. I have read on another thread that someone with the same version of ICS had the same USB issue. They ended up returning the phone. I have a feeling that this is software related and not hardware.

So my question is, is it possible for me to go back to stock 4.0.2. It seems like Odin and fastboot all need usb. I read that a factory format may be possible using a dialer code(*2767*3855#), but when I tried it it didn't do anything. Probably worth noting that I didn't take any backups before flashing.

Go back to stock on your nexus 5 using this guide: here

Tired of paying too much money for your phone plan? go prepaid!

Save money on refills for your prepaid plans: Use Callingmart

Are you sure it's not a driver issue?

If you can't use the USB port AND you don't have root AND you don't have a custom recovery, I don't think there is much else you can do.

On you windows box, what do you see when you plugin your phone with the device manger window open? Is nothing detected at all?

Are you using the same cable between the nexus 7 adn the Gnex? If not, the cable you are using with your Gnex may be a charge only cable or it could be damaged.
