Galaxy Nexus Stuck in Boot Loop
I woke up this morning and found my GN with a very dim lit screen with lines on it unable to do anything with the phone. This is unusual because it was plugged in to charge overnight, just like any other night. So I unplugged the phone and had to pull the battery. Now the phone is stuck in a loop. The screen is black with the Google logo on it. The Google logo flashes off every 15 seconds [and the phone vibrates when it does]. I have since pulled the battery a number of times, but it still gets into this loop. The battery is also heating up in the process. The phone is stock [never rooted or unlocked] with ICS 4.02. I was thinking it might have something to do with a software update, but maybe the phone just failed. I have had the phone since the week it was introduced. This is the first major problem I have had, except for low volume and my voice cutting out on phone calls
Thanks in advance for your help and comments.
