    Really messed up. Deleted SD card folder now am screwed. Please help!

    Hi. Did something stupid when trying to tidy things up. Deleted folder called SD Card on root of storage as all there was in it was an empty simple text folder I assumed the app created it. Obviously this messed everything up so thought I would do a factory reset and start again. This didn't help and now my computer won't recognise the phone as says USB Device is broken. I can't use ClockworkMod to do a restore as those files are no longer on the phone and I can't transfer them from my PC as my PC won't recognise the phone. Really don't know what to do now. Please help me!!........

    You will need to flash the stock image either by adb/fastboot commands or one of the root tool kits. It could be an issue if your pc can't recognize your device but there is still hope. Can you get into bootloader? If you are on custom rom you can access from power menu. From phone off state Vol up+down and power button at same time?

    Have you backed up your files and pictures? I see too many desperate cries for help recovering deleted priceless pictures with no solution.

    AM in Bootloader now. I used wugfresh toolikit to root and it doesn't recognise any adb device but I am not familiar with adb/fastboot commands at all. Thanks for the help

    Wugfresh toolikit does recognise a fastboot device while in bootloader though

    I'm not sure you can use the tool kit but here are instructions for fastboot.

    What you need
    • Samsung Galaxy Nexus GSM Version
    • All the usual fastboot & ADB drivers etc
    • Fastboot
    • Official Google Image
    Google Images
    4.0.1 ITL41D
    MD5: 7a0812e98524a8157fdbe074d60c2c71

    4.0.1 ITL41F
    MD5: 7702b2a806b9efcb781838668e9f3415

    4.0.2 ICL53F
    MD5: c58813bb68fc55d2eba33c8c126f37ba

    Fastboot
    DOWNLOAD

    1) Take a Nandroid Backup if you have CWM installed

    2) Extract the content of the Google Image

    3) Copy the contents of the Fastboot download to the same folder as where you extract the Google Image too.

    4) Boot your phone into the Bootloader mode

    5) Open up Command Prompt or Terminal, navigate to the folder you've extracted it all too and enter the following commands waiting for each to finish
    Windows
    fastboot-windows flash bootloader bootloader-maguro-primekk15.img
    fastboot-windows reboot-bootloader
    fastboot-windows flash radio radio-maguro-i9250xxkk6.img
    fastboot-windows reboot-bootloader
    fastboot-windows -w update image-yakju-icl53f.zip

    Linux
    ./fastboot-linux flash bootloader bootloader-maguro-primekk15.img
    ./fastboot-linux reboot-bootloader
    ./fastboot-linux flash radio radio-maguro-i9250xxkk6.img
    ./fastboot-linux reboot-bootloader
    ./fastboot-linux -w update image-yakju-icl53f.zip

    OSX
    ./fastboot-mac flash bootloader bootloader-maguro-primekk15.img
    ./fastboot-mac reboot-bootloader
    ./fastboot-mac flash radio radio-maguro-i9250xxkk6.img
    ./fastboot-mac reboot-bootloader
    ./fastboot-mac -w update image-yakju-icl53f.zip

    6) The last step is to lock the bootloader. Restart the phone into the bootloader

    7) Open CMD in the location of Superboot and type:
    fastboot-windows oem lock

    You will need to extract that file with 7zip. Yes that's correct.

    After doing a nandroid and rebooting to so I could go back to bootloader for some reason I can now recognise my phone. Have rebooted again to make sure and still good. Had to flash CMR again so maybe that had something to do with it. But I'm going to cross my fingers and never delete anything so spontaneously again. I really appreciate your help on this and will go through these steps as I have everything in place if necessary.
