i had tried it before, but still not working. I had used three different (charged) battery. But also cannot turn on.

I find Unbrickable for nexus S, Is there any software like that for Glaxy Nexus?

Rguys I have the answer to this. I had problems and fixed my phone with ease (ish =p)

Not required (if you can turn your phone on do these steps)

1. Your gonna need dropbox(decent amount of space I needed 2.5 GB)

Stuff you need (if your phone can't turn on, do this anyways)

2. Wug's Galaxy Nexus Toolkit

3. Experience. =p

Who wants and still need to fix their nexus device from an annoying bug???

Well since a toolkit (and not understanding how to use it) was what originally fuxored you guys....
Why not try to recovering by using one again hahahahaha.....right ?

You do not need a toolkit of any sort.
And what exactly is dropbox supposed to do for you if your phone won't get online ?

Common sense should dictate not to use something that screwed you over (the first time it's a mistake, the second time it's not a mistake anymore).
Common sense should also tell you that a person that just joined the site last month and has 28 posts with a donate button might not have your best interests in mind.

But hey, it's the intarwebz.....toss logic to the wind.

If you are unable to go into recovery or fastboot mode, then I'm afraid you are hard bricked and there really isn't anything you can do apart from return it to Samsung (hoping they will actually fix it or replace it). At the moment, there is no Unbrickable mod for the Galaxy Nexus.

Unhappy
I can go in Bootloader, but can't load or install Recovery

Error: FAILED (data transfer failure (too many links))

The battery won't charge either in Bootloader so I need to wait for an external battery charger from eBay, in the mean time I am showing some love to a NEXUS S bought on Craiglist yesterday.

This is the one reason why I don't wanna root. I'm afraid of my device becoming a full brick. I know that Wugs will unbrick and restore a bootloop or a GNex that is stuck on the Google logo, but has anyone found out if you can UnBrick a GNex that won't turn on?
