Exclamation How I can brick my galaxy nexus with an EMMC fried?

hi guys, I've probably fried the emmc on my phone...

I've tried everthing from recovery from toolkit and from odin (remains just fastboot I had not time yet) whatever I wipe or I flash on my phone doesn't matter all sticks there when I reboot (and my phone keep gooing in bootloop on cm logo)

So since it's unlocked I'm trying to find a way to brick definitely my phone, so I can take in warranty.

Anybody has suggestions to brick it??

Pull something off the motherboard. This may/may not work to get it replaced but will most definitely brick it.

I woldnt advise that at all, on my nexus 7 2012 I was popping the back off and my screwdriver slipped and knocked a resistor off the motherboard (making my GPS not work). I accidentally erased my bootlader a few months later and when I sent it in to warrejty they rejected it due to "customor induced hardware damage".

My intention of suggesting omapflash was to unbrick your phone,not to brick it :P. And as for the headphone port,according to ifixit,the headphone port and speakers are easy to replace(http://www.ifixit.com/Teardown/Samsu...+Teardown/7182)

@fracama87 Then instead of the headphone port, try using omapflash. Enjoy your Moto G
