    Unable to boot GNex LTE stuck at Google screen.

    [Q] Help cannot get back Google Screen LTE Galaxy Nexus
    I hope someone can help me I have been unable to get my phone off of the Google screen for 2 days now.

    First some history.

    I upgraded my bootloader and radios to 4.0.3 when P3 released them a while back.

    I am able to get into both CWM Recovery and bootloader, and Odin mode.

    Fastboot and ADB both recognize.

    When I push files they act like they take on my PC but when I boot they don't come up. I have been unable to revert my bootloader and Odin says it passes but doesn't actually change anything.

    When I try to install a rom everything goes through very quickly while throwing an offset line but again never boots.

    When I try to restore the backup that I have I get an error stating that I cannot read /system.

    I have tried odin, manually pushing all images and all the one click tools I could find. THe only thing I have not done is repartition with my odin as I cannot find the pit file. If anyone has any idea I would love the help.

    I tried to fastboot the files. They look like they take but when you go look at them they are all the old ones like the bootloader is PRIMEKL01 instead of the KK or KJ bootloaders I have pushed. The only things that seem to take are the radios. When I go into Bootloader this is what I see





    Fastboot Mode
    Product Name - tuna
    Variant - toro
    HW Version - 9
    BOOTLOADER VERSION - PRIMEKL01
    BASEBAND vERSION I515.EK04 CDMA - I515.EK05
    CARRIER INFO - NONE
    SIGNING - PRODUCTION
    LOCK STATE - UNLOCKED

    When I tried to do a fastboot oem lock my bootloader changes to locked but then when I do the reboot my lock shows unlocked and doesn't move

    Hope this gives some more info





    If this helps when I look at the log file in CWM I get anerror that says

    winzip: zlib inflate call failed (zerr=-3)
    winzip:can't extract entry to file.
    unmount of /system failed; no such volume.

    how doI get my system volume back

    Since you can get into clockworkmod, do you have a nandroid backup of 4.0.3 to restore? That would be the easiest fix...

    I had a backup of my stock system but for whatever reason when I attempt to restore it says can't mount /system volume. Is there anyway to recreate that volume?

    Have you tried mounting system in the mounts and storage menu in clockworkmod?

    I think your best bet would be following this guide to start fresh...[HOW TO] Unroot the VZW GN, Re-Lock the bootloader and Start Factory Fresh

    If adb and fastboot recognize your device, you should be good to follow that.

    Unfortunately I tried both those options as well. It's the weirdest thing I've ever seen. I think I may just have to bite the bullet and send the phone back to Samsung and see if they will ref lash it for cheap.
