    Exclamation VZW GNex Locking on 'radio-cdma' During Un-Root (Mac and PC) Please Assist! Boot Loop

    This is my second rooted phone (rooted OG Droid w/cyanogenmod no problem), so i have only a little experience. I was unable to find this specific issue addressed elsewhere. I apologize in advance if I have missed a solution already in existence. I really appreciate any help that can be offered!!

    Rooted my GNex and flashed with Bugless Beast ROM two nights ago on my mac. Phone worked flawlessly all day at work yesterday. When I got home I started having radio connectivity issues, so I flashed again. Then I got no radio reception at all (4G or 3G) AND it started boot looping. Boots through to the OS and then restarts after approx. 45 seconds. I have been trying to unroot the phone/recover to a stock rom all day with no luck. I have tried on mac and pc. On each it hangs on the phone and computer when attempting to install 'radio-cdma'. Below is a capture of the read out in mac terminal when I use toro_unroot_4.0.4 (returns removed to save space).

    Ideal solution gets my phone working again in any fashion. Def does not need to be recovered to factory settings, just need my phone back. Thanks!

    This script will restore the original 4.0.4 firmware,
    Remove root access on the device
    and relock the bootloader

    Can you get in to recovery at all? Pulling battery then holding vol down + vol up + power and selecting recovery from the options there?

    When I posted earlier I was able to get into recovery mode, as well as download mode. Since then, I tried recovery with ODIN. I ran into the same issue with the lockup on 'cdma-radio.img'. Now, I only get a black screen with a phone ... yellow ! triangle ... computer. I have not seen this before, and I cannot get past it. I tried ODIN again after the first time I saw the screen. The phone was recognized by ODIN, and it got to 'cdma-radio.img' again and locked up. Seems like this problem is getting worse. Still unable to get to recovery or download mode.

    Thanks in advance for your advice!

    What happens when you pull the battery then try booting into the bootloader with vol up + vol down + power? Do you still get the yellow triangle? That should only be if you boot up holding vol down + power

    When I pull the battery and attempt either button combination I get the same screen. Is this considered a soft brick? Thanks!

    How long is it stuck at writing radio-cdma? It can take quite a while.

    I have not tried leaving it more than 20 minutes. I assumed based on the speed of the other files that this would be long enough. Should I wait longer than that?

    Thanks!

    No, twenty minutes is definitely stuck, I was thinking you may only be waiting a few minutes and being impatient. You certainly have an issue here, are you using the factory USB cable? Sometimes inferior cables have issues with data transfer.

    What is the phone doing now when you just try to power it on normally? Do you have ADB set up at all?

    I am using the factory cable, and its brand new, perfect condition. Just let ODIN attempt again for an entire episode of LOST, same thing as other attempts.

    As for ADB, I am not sure about that. I've tried so many things today I likely have set it up. How would I know?

    When I boot normally it goes to the same screen, with the phone and comp and yellow triangle.

    Can't wait to straighten this out! Thanks for all the input!
