    Default Bricked my phone

    So I went to install the latest version of Bugless Beast. I rebooted into recovery and tried to flash it but it failed. I tried again and it failed. Then I tried to reboot my phone and it can't get past the Google logo. I pulled my battery and entered the screen that says START but now it looks like this:

    What is downloading? I can't get the volume buttons to change the text so I can enter the recovery. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I tried the same...didn't work using bb so I tried using wugs to reinstall stock ics.
    That put me in a boot loop and now I can't do anything....
    I can go into recovery but that's it...can't install anything, etc.

    Follow the factory restore thread. No toolkits.. Gonna have to fastboot it.. You'll be fine, it's easy and well written

    You need to hold BOTH volumes to get to the bootloader.. Holding only volume down gets you to Odin mode, which is a no-no on an unlocked device

    No toolkits.. Grab the SU.zip from the unlocking threads and flash it in recovery. Sounds like you'll probably have to fastboot yourself into recovery as well.

    If you get device not found messages check that your fastboot drivers are correctly installed. Uninstall and reinstall them if need be.

    You'll need a computer. Reboot to the bootloader. Use fastboot to flash a custom recovery and then reboot to the custom recovery and use it to flash the SU.zip. Full instructions should all be spelled out here:
    [GUIDE] How To Unlock Bootloader and Root Verizon Galaxy Nexus

    You don't need the restore to factory zip since you are basically there.

    Nope, just uses the drivers and command prompt.
