Hi, I am new to the forum. And very new to rooting phone. And due to my lack of knowledge, here's the problem that I have as a result:

I have an UNFLASHABLE GSM unlocked galaxy nexus gt-i9250. Had it successfully rooted two days after I had it 3 weeks ago. I have flashed MIUI via CWM premium edition and it worked fine. I recently flashed AOKP Build 32 with the latest Leankernel baseband xx66 and have been running it fine for 4 days until now.

I just flashed [Amoled BLUE 2.2 for AOKP build 32] and stuck on boot loop for 2 hours now.

I made NANDROID of my rooted stock, but the problem is that I DID NOT have it saved on my Galaxy Nexus. What to do??? Please help.

You're fine buddy.

Boot into CWM...
(Power phone off by pulling battery. Power on with power+volume up+volume down)
Select the recovery option.

Wipe data (factory reset)
Flash ANY rom.

You'll boot right up.


Now move your nandroid to your phone and restore.

Edit:
Oh, and check my sig.
The second and third posts may be useful to you.

Thanks. I did everything you mentioned and still stuck in the AMOLED Blue theme anime boot loop.

So, another question that arises is how do I flash rom when I can't get past the boot loop with no NANDROID or backups stored in my Nexus?

You didn't do what I mentioned if you're asking how to flash the rom.

Most roms also require you to install "gapps" as well.
You can find the correct ones for the rom you're using in the rom thread.
Make sure the Rom and Gapps are on your SD card.
Boot into ClockworkMod Recovery by turning your device completely off. Hold volume up, volume down, and power until the green Android with the open chest is displayed. Navigate to "Recovery Mode" with the volume buttons and select using the power button.
Remember to have a recent nandroid before continuing!
Navigate to "wipe data/factory reset" and select it. Select "yes."
Wait for the process to complete. This may take some time. Be patient!
Once complete: Navigate to "Install Zip from SD card" and "Choose zip from SD card."
Find the rom's .zip and install it. Once that completes install any applicable gapps' .zip.
Select the "Reboot" option.
Congratulations! Your phone should now boot into the custom rom!
Follow the prompts to re-activate your phone.

This post may help as well...

It describes getting your files transferred to your phone.
But if you have a rom .zip on there you don't need this.

I didn't asked for how to flash a rom. I asked how to bypass the boot loop. Argh...

Okay, I flashed Amoled blue for AOKP build 32. I get stuck on boot loop anime after flashing it via CWM. Yes, I did a cavlik cache wipe before the flash.

But I'm stuck on boot loop, why?

And I'm telling you how, mate.
Don't flash the theme.
Flash a ROM.
The theme isn't a full system...which is what you need.
And you need to wipe data.


Edit:
I'll take it by your lack of response that this fixed it.
You're welcome.
