    Default So how would I go about bricking my verizon galaxy nexus?

    So because of this: Computer not Recognizing Galaxy Nexus. WANT FLASH NOW!!! and the last couple of days spent looking for answers, in vein, I've decided that my only option is to find a way to BRICK my phone so I can take it back to Verizon. Any pointers on ways to go about this?

    Now, before I get a million replies about batt pulling during a flash... If you didn't click on the forum post/back story above, here are the parameters:

    Verizon Galaxy Nexus
    -4.0.4 IMM30B ( )
    -Phone isn't mounting to the computer through micro USB (might be MPT issues in the ROM, or hardware issues)
    -phone is unlocked
    -phone does NOT have root

    See? Not as clear cut is it?

    Basically, the MIcro USB thing is killing me and I want to return the thing to Verizon for a new one. But the phone is unlocked and I don't want it to be an issue. It's either BRICK or figure a way to revert to stock... and I'm out of ideas as to reverting to stock.

    SO, what'd ya say? Help me break my phone? Thanks guys!

    You can't brick this phone.... and if you did, verizon would most likely void your warranty and not let you exchange it anyway. Get insurance and drop it in the toilet / run over it with your car is a better idea than that, lol.

    So, thinking that my USB issue has a good chance of being a hardware problem - I took it to verizon to see if they would fix it... and now they are sending me a new nexus! Thank you big red!
