Default [Q] Is it possible to mount a usb otg with a pendrive to revive a hardbricked gnex

My Gnex died on me mysteriously and i did the usual battery pull. Guess what, it was hard bricked, no recovery,no download mode no nothing. only a black screen. I have seen videos on debricking a galaxy s3 using 'debrick.bin' on their micro sd cards. Their explanation is that the phone will try to boot from the internal sd however if that fails it will move to the next best one which is the micro sd card and boot from it. So is it possible to reuse this concept on the galaxy nexus with a usb drive attached to the otg cable and boot from it. If so, who is capable of providing 'debrick.bin' for galaxy nexus users.

I don't think so. Since i velieve the drivers for that are loaded in OS and not available in Recovery/download mode. Still it might work.
