1. Hold down the power button to shut the device off

3. In bootloader mode, switch the big green START to the red RECOVERY using the volume buttons
4. Enter stock recovery by pressing the power button
5. You will see an android on its back
6. Press Vol up + power button at the same time to enter the stock recovery menu
7. Select "Factory Reset" with the volume buttons and press the power button to initiate it.
8. After the factory reset your device should boot up normally.

While in hospital recently, I thought it would be cool to upgrade my ROM to a newer NIGHTLY. Unfortunately, the drugs I was being fed intravenously coupled with my aging gray matter, I overlooked switching to USB debugging mode. The updated ROM & latest GAPPS loaded fine as did wiping data/cache functions...however, nothing since has worked in terms of getting my phone to reboot in any way. It still responds to simultaneous Vol Up/Vol Dn + Start Button & simultaneous Vol Dn + Start Button commands. The procedure you describe, above, does NOT work verbatim on my Verizon Samsung Galaxy Nexus. Please advise what exactly I can do to get my phone back to some form of working condition.
NOTE: I am a double donater to you and have, I believe, the latest version of Galaxy Nexus Toolkit installed on my Win7 PC.

Thank you!

WugFresh,

Good News, dude!!! I figured it out! W/help from other posts I pulled & reinstalled the battery, then simultaneously pressed Vol Up/Vol Dn + Start Buttons, I booted into recovery mode, then wiped data & caches, then used your Galaxy Nexus Toolkit (finally figured out how to get it to recognize my soft-bricked phone), then selected #36 as my PHONE model & then selected #9 ("Download, extract +flash google factory stock ROM") and followed all instructions for downloading '.tgz' or '.tar' file & copying it verbatim to the"put_google_factory_image_here" folder, & the two [Galaxy Nexus Toolkit & my Toro SGN phone] immediately recognized one another & the electronic handshakes occurred that allowed the Google Factory Stock ROM to be downloaded, extracted, & installed to my previously soft-bricked phone. During that process, one 'yes' checkpoint confirmed the action to completely erase data & partitions. Once all of the files were downloaded & installed, the phone booted into the newly minted OS and, voila, my phone now works good as new!

Thank you!

Really? I wasn't aware of this. It asks for a password? That is so weird. Can you add me on gchat (wugfresh at gmail).

Hey wug, is it normal that when you perform a backup for apps+data it keeps saying shared storage while backing up? Im on the screen of the backup and it's been a while since it doesn't change. Thanks.

Edit: Okay, I finished my backup, all I had to do is unplug the nexus 10... lmao.

If you unplugged it then you interrupted your backup and its probably corrupt. Mouse over the backup options and read the tooltips, you will see that a data/media backup is better for shared data.
