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.
