Default pretty sure the gnex is unbrickable

Ive flashed modded pit files...pits from random phones. Even flashed a d710 ROM with Odin. Flashed toro plus and maguro Odin packages to the phone and no brick.lmao! Can't seem to brick the thing.

Just don't flash or Odin a radio file that's not from your carrier. Might see how brickable these devices are. Installing the wrong radio file is the #1 way to Nuke a phone. Have fun beside that.

OMAP flash.

Unless you have a faulty eMMC, there is no way you can hard brick your gnex, at least I can't think of any ways to do it.
