Hi all. I've got a potentially major problem (brick) with my Galaxy Nexus. Did some searching and haven't been able to successfully perform any of the suggested recovery methods, so figured I'd post and ask for help. Anyway I hate to be the new guy who comes in asking for help, but I'm desperate.
The device keeps rebooting: Google screen starts, then it gets shaky/blurry (moves side to side) and the device reboots. The entire process takes about 5-10sec.
The phone is rooted. I can get to the bootloader screen by pressing up+down+start, but only after removing the battery (that's the only way I can get the device to power down). If I attempt to up+down+start during the reboot sequence it doesn't work (not sure if there's enough time).
My options from the root screen are "start", "recovery mode", "power off" and "restart bootloader". All of these options (except power off) just start the reboot cycle anew -- although recovery mode will take about 20sec for the reboot cycle to start again.
I wasn't doing anything weird or even installing anything when it happened. Put the phone down on the counter and it just started rebooting.
When I plug the phone into the PC, I'm not seeing the device (showing up in device manager as an unknown device sometimes .. not at all others) and adb devices isn't showing it either.
Ideally I'd like to get my data off of the phone, but honestly, at this point, I just want the thing to work again without having to try to go down the warranty route (which will be especially hard with the phone rooted, even if I did buy direct from Google).
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
