Default cyanogenmod wont boot

I just decided to root my gnexus and I downloaded and installed to cyanogenmod rom. I restarted my device and the boot logo just keeps spinning. I am afraid I might have ruined my phone. Any suggestions?

Also, which custom recovery and how did you try to install your rom would be very helpful to know.

Alright, two final questions and then we'll start the process to fix it. What exact versions of CWM did you use, and which version of CyanogenMod did you try to install: 9, 10, or 10.1

Edit: I have also moved this into the Verizon ATR subform in order to attract more specialized help.

Alright, Generally when I install custom roms I like to do it manually in recovery. That way I know the correct things get wiped.

So my first suggestion would be to first get into CWM manually. You can do this by first going into fastboot mode by holding vol up + vol down + power while the device is off. You should see an android laying down with it's stomach opened up and the word start in green at the top. Use the volume down to change it from start to reboot recovery, then use the power key to select. After that, the device will boot into CWM.

Once in CWM, you are going to want to preform a couple of wipes to make sure anything from the stock rom is gone. You will first select factory reset from the main menu. Second will be a wipe cache from the main menu. Third will be format system in the mounts and storage. Fourth will be format/wipe (can't remember which) dalvik cache under the advanced menu option.

Once all 4 wipes have occurred, go back to the main menu and go to install from sd card, then the option to let you pick. Locate where your CM10.1 rom and gapps are and flash those in those exact order 1 right after the other. Once done, return to the main menu and reboot the device. It should boot up now, though it may take a couple of minutes, but no more than 5.

Sounds like you didn't install gapps while in recovery. if you didn't initially download it, give me a second and I'll provide a link

Here's the link for the latest gapps. Download these, then re-enter recovery. Wipe the cache and dalvik again, then flash these. After that, you can reboot and you'll be good to go.

Hi I had the same problem with the CM 10.1 wouldnt boot up. I went through the steps you outlined and did it manually through Cyno mod 5.1 or the latest one. I re-did all of it and then when I went to install zip from SD card, I had no files on my SD card. Any ideas.

Ok so a minute after I sent this. I tried it again and on my SD car there were two things left. "0" and 0BB. I chose the "0" and it then brought up my SD card. Not sure what happened there. Any light would be appreciated.

I hope you made a nandroid, because you're going to have to restore to it. You don't have the latest version of CWM that is compatible with CM10.1. More info here:
