[q] help ! Nexus wont go in recovery mode or boot at all !
Hi all, I am fairly new to the world that is custom ROMS and custom recovery. I am not very experienced with either of these things but right now have an issue to deal with.
I have a samsung galaxy nexus i9250gt that was sold to me from a friend. He claimed that the phone was in a constant reboot cycle and no matter what he tried he was not able to get out of it. I decided to take on the challenge and have so far been unsuccesfull.
So, what I have done so far is download a galaxy nexus tool kit v11.0 and try flashing the stock google rom on to it. Did not work.
Also tried using odin to flash a stock rom on to it. Still the same issue.
The screen I seem to get is a Google logo with a unlocked lock near the bottom. The phone vibrates and then shows this screen before repetitively doing so till the battery dies.
I can sometimes get in to fastboot mode and CANNOT get in to recovery mode. The phone will sometimes just restart when i select recovery mode or it will show a dead android with a red triangle and an exclamation mark. I do not really know what to do from here
REPEAT: PHONE WILL NOT GO IN TO RECOVERY MODE SUCCESSFULLY, WILL GO IN TO FASTBOOT MODE SOMETIMES.
I would really appreciate a step by step guide on how to get out of this.
