    1. own samsung galaxy nexus (GSM-UK) jelly bean 4.1 never rooted
    2. decided to see what all the fuss was about coming from iphone and being a dab hand i set about rooting my phone
    3. rooted device to stock 4.2
    4. downloaded rom manager
    5. flashed clockwork recovery mod
    6. (BALLS UP MOMENT) oh hey theres an ota update accept
    this is where everything went downhill
    7.relised my mistake and clicked no when it mentioned root fix in CWM
    8. stuck now on Google logo with the unlock at bottom
    9. tried to pull battery and reboot... still stuck on logo
    10. vol up + down + power -> recovery -> reboot system now = stuck on google screen
    10 vol up + down + power ->install zip from sdcard -> choose zip from sdcard = not much there just the following - 0/, -legacy/, ogg/, and of course go back
