Default Help phone stuck at boot screen

Hello. I just tried to unlock the bootloader on on Verizon Galaxy nexus. Now it's stuck at the bootscreen with the lock image. I did a search and couldn't find a exact answer for my issue. I hope I haven't bricked my phone. Anyway, any help would be appreciated.

I wasn't trying to root just unlock the bootloader. It appeared everything went ok but, now I'm stuck. I used the same method for unlocking the bootloader on my GSM G-nex and it worked.

I know I've done something wrong or this may be something simple. I just need help so I can use my phone.

are you able to boot into the bootloader? if so you should be able to recover and can't worry a little less.

No I don't believe I can. When I type fastboot it just says "waiting on device" I can hold the volume down & power buttons and get to the screen were it says "start" at the top and below that "downloding"

Yea, that was what I was eluding too, The device just came out and google released the GSM image. I am sure that it will appear online in the near future.

if you are able to get into the bootloader does it say that its unlocked ? is your google splash screen showing the unlocked padlock ? you could also try fastboot flash recovery to get cwm on there and provide additional potential solutions.

Yeah, when I did the procedure it said that it was unlocked. Everything looked ok , it booted show the unlock symbol under Google. It then went to the colorful animation and was stuck there. At that time I pulled the battery and, it's been stuck at the screen showing google and the unlock image.

you should have let the animation run for like 10 minutes the phone has to rebuild the first boot can take like 15 minutes sometimes.

try booting into the bootloader see if that works still

Sorry I wasn't paying attention and didn't read the part were you told me how to get to the fastboot screen. I'm there now. Can I just relock or fix the bootloader from problem there? It shows it unlocked at the fastboot screen.

you could try fastboot oem lock and see if that works but if the phone wasn't booting i don't know if that will fix it but worth a shot.

try it out and see. it shouldn't do any harm to try

I had the issue with the failure to boot up after doing the fastboot oem unlock (I had to use the pda net drivers to get my device recognized to get even that far). I did a lot of things like pulling the battery, locking again and then unlocking and nothing worked until I went here http://rootzwiki.com/topic/11732-gal...re-adb-method/, then downloaded the files following their directions and doing the fastboot boot boot.img command. It took a LONG time to boot up, but it did boot finally.
