but the device does not appear in my computer or device manager in windows, and Linux doesn't see it either.
In it's current state, it's soft bricked, is there anything I can do to fix it?
It now says "fastboot mode - no boot or recovery IMG", and I have no drivers to communicate with it under adb or fastboot.
I am sorry to hear about your phone. You are not alone I did the exact same thing a few days ago. Don't beat yourself up I have done that enough for both of us. Through my research into this i found there a few things that you might try (I don't own a PC so I haven't yet)
To get the drivers, I read a couple people had success downloading PDANet and installing them that way. I think they are located in "legacy drivers"
From the original "root, un-root" thread for your model download the stock boot img and try to flash that using ADB
follow the instructions to un-root and start over with rooting.
I also was going to look into Wug's toolkit (in the dev section) it looks like that may be an easy option to flash a working boot and recovery img.
I hope this helps please let me know.
I gave up to quick and ordered a GNex but I'm not touching that until I get my NS4G sorted out (my faith in my abilities is shaken and I could not handle bricking a brand new phone). I will be going to a friends house tonight to use their PC and try to get my NS running. I will be back to let you known what works and what doesn't. If you try or find anything would you please post? Two heads working on this issue are better then one. Thanks and good luck.
