    Don't panic just yet. Its not dead (well, hopefully). I'm pretty sure that just means it can't boot into the OS, and you will need to reflash it with a computer using the appropriate utility.

    Although to make sure, when you turn the phone on, make sure to hold both the volume up and down while holding power. This should bring up a menu of sorts aka fastboot mode. Does this come up at all?

    What happens when you pull the battery, then replace battery, then press and hold volume up + volume down + power button all at the same time?

    also more than likely its not dead. Worse case scenario you reflash the stock image in ADB. Takes 15 minutes.

    Do you have a nandroid backup? Can you access recovery mode (TWRP or CWM)? This is a difficult phone to completely kill. Worst case scenario head to XDA, grab a stock image and ODIN, and flash the stock image.

    You are in Download mode. dont panic, dont worry.
    there are ways to use ODIN for the GSM Nexus

    it is kind of odd that you cannot boot into bootloader mode, im wondering how you got into downloader mode for one
