HOWTO - RESTORE GALAXY NEXUS TO FACTORY

Have a bootlooping Galaxy Nexus LTE? This seems to be a popular one today after failed root attempts. No worries. I mentioned earlier that Google had released the factory images. I've seen a few people ask "now that I downloaded this 200mb zip file, what now? It's fairly simple.

Download: https://dl.google.com/dl/android/aosp/mysid-icl53f-factory-65895fa8.tgz
Unzip the archives.
Reboot into the bootloader: adb reboot bootloader

Execute flash-all.sh which will restore the entire phone to factory state.

chmod +x flash-all.sh
./flash-all.sh

Or you can flash individual fatory images with the following commands:

Bootloader
fastboot flash bootloader bootloader-toro-primekk15.img
fastboot reboot-bootloader

LTE Radio
fastboot flash radio radio-toro-i515.ek02.img
fastboot reboot-bootloader

CDMA Radio
fastboot flash radio-cdma radio-cdma-toro-i515.ek05.img
fastboot reboot-bootloader

System, Boot, Recovery, User Data
fastboot -w update image-mysid-icl53f.zip

You can also extract image-mysid-icl53f.zip and flash those images separately.

fastboot flash boot boot.img
fastboot flash system system.img
fastboot flash recovery recovery.img
fastboot flash userdata userdata.img
fastboot erase cache
