I had a similar situation yesterday with a failed 4.4 install on my Gnex and this is what worked for me, YMMV.
I installed the Minimal ADB package from here
on my PC.
"adb devices" from within the ADB window showed my Gnex.
I downloaded the CM 10.2 Rom and placed the zip on the root c: of my PC for the shortest path to remember.
"adb push c:\'rom name' space '/sdcard/download' " to push the zip file to my Gnex. This can take a few seconds depending on the size of the zip.
Boot in recovery and flash the ROM zip.
Here's a link
to an ADB guide
