    Not sure yet, wish I had recovery installed to be able to wipe data that would have worked (maybe). Has to be a work around some where.

    here is what i'm trying, I'll let you know if it works

    Actually... the whole phone gets wiped. Including whats considered the sd card.... at least for me it did. Good thing I only had a few test pictures that i had taken.

    Can any one else confirm that the entire phone was wiped.... including storage?

    That sounds right to me, android central s last podcast mentioned to unlock your bootloader right away when you get your nexus for that very reason.

    Mine was sitting at the google screen for a serious 15 minutes. I pulled the battery, booted up just fine and super user is working correctly. Installed Rom Manager and flashed Clockwork. Idk why you guys are getting boot loops. Maybe I got lucky?? Idk 15 minutes should be more than enough time to load the system images back up. To fix the soft boot wouldn't you just go to the stock recovery and delete data/factory reset?? I mean that's what I would do...

    Nope. Pull the battery and turn back on. With root explorer goto /system and rename the file "recovery-from-boot.p", put a 1 in front or .bak. Then with ROM manager reflash CWM and you should be good to go. Boot into CWM.

    root explorer is an Android application and if your in a bootloop like myself you won't be able to use it. I'm wait to see if upstream is able to push the stock file which should get us out this loop.

    And for a question of my own. If i used this method to unlock the bootloader only, can I just skip to step 14 to root the phone or do I need to use another method to get root.

    Was this answered? I have the bootloader unlocked but not rooted yet?

    If you are brave try this:

    From the command prompt pointing to the folder with fastboot.exe, adb.exe and stock images:

    Exact commands:

    adb reboot bootloader
    Gnex will then reboot into bootloader screen
    fastboot flash boot boot.img
    fastboot flash system system.img
    fastboot flash recovery recovery.img
    fastboot flash userdata userdata.img
    fastboot erase cache
    fastboot oem lock
    Use volume rocker to select ok and then Gnex will reboot.

    You are now stock, locked and unrooted.

    Kanged from Steady Hawkin.

    The four files (boot, system, recovery, userdata) are located in the image-mysid-icl53f.zip after downloading from Google. Unzip them and place in folder that fastboot.exe is located in.

    It also contaings a "flash-all.sh" which will allow you to flash them all with one command.

    Command is in this thread as well as link to stock images: http://forums.androidcentral.com/ver...axy-nexus.html

    Here is how I fixed my loop - I just locked the bootloader up and then followed the guide again and without pulling the battery this time it worked. Miami let me know if your still having issues.

    So first install the samsung drivers,then install the usb drivers too .
    Then I make sure there are no errors in device manager with phone hook up to computer with USB ticked on phone.So it looks like the picture in the link (samsung drivers first link in OP)

    After that is all checked out download superboot and follow the pictures and instructions til completed.Steps 1-15. I think I m correct on all that ,lol
    I have 2 question more
    I already did the update yesterday so I am on Androd version 4.0.2 so has anyone use this method while on 4.0.2? This one of my biggest concerns Im not sure of.

    Also I may wait and see how everyone is getting out of the bootloop some are having ,I see what some did to get out of the bootloop ,but also see others dont have the same options to use (ex:wiped data and cache)

    edit: ok I see some more posts since I started tying about bootloop question have been posted
