Nope as long as you can get into Clockwork you are never toast. Actually even if you can't there are still things to fix it.

What I would do is the following:

Reboot back into Clockwork Mod. If you can't get back in boot to the bootloader and re-issue the fastboot flash recovery recovery-clockwork-5.5.0.4-toro.img command and then boot into Recovery.

Then do a factory wipe/restore from there. Also wipe /system as well.

Then flash Liquid and whatever else is necessary and see if it boots up. Can you point me to the thread where you got Liquid from?

So I just checked our mail and we had a few pieces that were scrunched up and partially burned?! One actually was a check for my wife but it's in fine shape so not a huge deal. Has anyone ever experienced this? Wonder if I should say something to our mail handler/USPS.. weird.

I'd take pics and then ask the mail carrier what happened

Might be a dumb question, but how long are you waiting for the boot to take?

When installing a new ROM, it will take a while for the first boot animation, sometimes several minutes.

I waited for like 10-15 minutes....... after re-flashing in clockwork, it seemed to take off and boot normally.

Do you have a Nandroid backup yet? If so, you can battery pull, boot into recovery, restore and start over again. If not, this may get interesting...

Just had this exact same thing yesterday. I think they got stuck in the automatic sorter. Dunno, but it made a tad angry because one of the things was ruined.

So, I'm putting together some ideas for our antipasti menu (we change monthly). Here's what I got, let me know what you think.
-Local asparagus, hard boiled egg, shallot vinaigrette
-Quinoa, black beans, roasted red peppers, chipotle vinaigrette
-Fresh fava beans, pickled strawberries, Pecorino Romano
-Israeli couscous, English peas, shallots, white balsamic vinaigrette (our house vin.)

Things I definitely want to pack in since they have short seasons are favas, asparagus, and English peas.
Thoughts?

Anyone see the bedlam in Lexington, KY that ensued after the national championship last night? Their 8th national title and they about burn down the town...you'd think they just scored a touchdown in football

Non nom nom (not the fava beans).
What about asparagus, blue cheese, toasted nuts and some sort of light vinaigrette?

Have you never had fresh favas!? They're really delicious, so creamy and buttery.
Asparagus and gorganzola would be great, but I'd like to keep it light and have the asparagus shine. My alternate there was with a light lemon and rosemary vinaigrette with roasted kalamata olives.
I'll shoot the ideas out to the owner/chef and see what he thinks.

Nope. I haven't. I really only eat chick peas and black beans.
Wouldn't the kalamata olives over power the asparagus too?

The kalamatas would be roasted and chopped up, basically a garnish. It gives a nice pop of salt and a touch of acid.

Bahaha! I've actually never seen Titanic. I wouldn't mind seeing it, but throwing down what ticket prices are for DC (especially 3D), I don't think it's worth it.

We're going, but my wife told me I have to cover my eyes during the bewbs scene. I probably slobbered a bit too much last time we saw it.

HAHA! The wife makes me cover my eyes too. But turn about is fair play, I cover hers during any shirtless guy scenes

I was still in middle school when the original came out and the parents decided to wait till it came out on VHS (yeah, VHS) to watch it. They fast-forwarded through a couple of parts so my Titanic experience has holes in it of scenes I never got to watch, that included the nude sketch scene....frankly the only reason a middle school boy would have any interest in watching that movie, lol.

Speaking of clockworkmod, have any of you tried the Touch version? I wish I hadn't waited so long. It is so much easier to do things in recovery mode using Touch!

I think I might have been a freshman in HS when it came out, or maybe 8th grade, don't remember. But I do remember that I thought it was a great movie. The storyline is pretty good; the first time I watched it, I almost forgot that they were heading for disaster.

Another one I'm looking forward to this year is the final Batman film. I hope it tops the first 2. I have purposefully refused to watch any trailers or read anything about it. I want to be totally surprised. My wife and I went to a movie a few months ago and they had the trailer. I closed my eyes and put my hands over my ears and softly hummed.

My daughter will be getting the Gnex tomorrow via USPS. I can not want to help out with this.
Her husband past on the Gnex for the Moto Razr when it came out. So this will be fun.

Can't wait to go home and watch Game of Thrones season premiere. Wanted to get to it last night, but life came up, as usual!

Initial results from my screen brightness level tweak study are in. Definitely see gains. I averaged together the 4 days I ran my tweaked screen brightness levels which you see on the Green bar and the 2 days I've ran at 100% brightness so far and that is your Blue bar. The other two are power usage averages for the rest of the phone processes combined without the screen usage (GPS, WIFI, processes, etc) I ran different processes, especially for a couple of days, with my tweaked screen levels so that's why you see a little higher system usage there more than likely, pretty small difference.

You can see, with 100% brightness, I was calculating about 10.9 mAh/min of screen on time. With tweaked levels I was averaging about 7.9 mAh/min. So from 100% brightness all the time to optimizing your brightness, you can see about a 30% decrease in power usage from your screen.

Side note: I noticed with the 100% brightness, I could make the power consumption increase quite a bit by using apps/visiting websites with white backgrounds. Makes a HUGE difference. I could make the running average bump up at least 1-2 mAh/min just by doing something on a white background for 5-10 minutes.

Another key difference, which makes sense and supports my findings so far is that your screen percentage under battery stats hovers around 60% with 100% brightness and around 42% with my tweaked settings.

Keep in mind that with my tweaked settings, this was automatically controlled and did see full 100% brightness occasionally (any time I was in full sun) and anywhere else in between.

I got to say that the ICS seen has been pretty quiet since the Gnex came out. Everyone thought that the Razr and Resound would have had ICS by now. <<< Very strange.

Instagram is more for the social network aspect rather than the filters for me although it does take really awesome pictures.

I definitely want to see Titanic in 3D. Pretty crazy that it is going to be 100 years since the sinking this year. I remember when the movie first came out and it was on 2 VHS tapes because it was so long.

Both have service, but neither gets used outside the house and with unlimited 4g tethering on my Nexus, kind of a moot point (and waste of cash) to have the other two lines sitting around the house. The Xoom was to use during storm chasing season while at work or if I was actually chasing.

The xoom or macbook pro can be tethered to my Nexus. The only issue I see is the occasional radio glitch with my data on the Nexus. If I had the droidx and my nexus radio "burped" during tracking a storm, that would not be good, more so if I was chasing the sucker.

Both the xoom and droidx contracts end a couple months apart, in 2013. I figure if nothing else, my sister has an iPhone 4s with tethering if the network is being goofy.

Hmmm..
Droid x or Xoom. Both probably need to go but the ETFs are going to be a bit steep.
Self quote for the win

Well, I did some thinking and I think the Droid x is going to get the ax since its got data (2gig) texting and voice. It would save me a bit more in the long run since the Xoom uses data only

I knew it wasn't coming to those devices for a while. RAZR fans swore up and down it was coming in February. But with Verizon being Verizon, I don't think they should have kept their hopes up. At all.

As per P3droid, I thought it was leaked already? I know there's a few versions out for my wife's Bionic but I haven't taken the time to load a new ROM. That thing is a pain for ROMing with dealing with bootstrap and all it entails.

Exactly the reason I didn't go with either of those devices. I think the Rezound will get it soon though.

I wouldn't know about that. I stopped looking for the Windsock's opinions long, long ago.

Scary that I was thinking the same thought when I opened up the thread.

It looks like the Gnex GSM is getting a 4.0.4 OTA update today.

Yeah like the Reese's Easter Eggs that my local grocer has on sale - buy one get one free! I'm hoarding them but the family found my stash

Hi Gnexers!
