Practically everyone here at XDA-Developers has flashed his or her fair share of custom ROMs, kernels, tweaks, and mods. As all of you should know, flashing an update.zip carries some inherent risk. Occasionally, however, things go wrong, and we’re stuck with a hard- or soft-brick.
We want you to share your scariest and most nerve-racking flashing experiences with us. 20 winners (10 GSM and 10 CDMA/LTE) with the most interesting and unique tales will receive a customized and laser-etched Galaxy Nexus battery cover from GRUVER concepts. What better way to show off your XDAddiction than with an XDA-branded backplate?
To enter the contest, simply leave your story in the comments field below, including how you ultimately salvaged your device. Please also let us know your flavor of Galaxy Nexus. Winners will be chosen by Portal Admin willverduzco (Yes, that’s me—muhahaha!) on the basis of originality, humor, and ingenuity. The contest will run until next Monday, April 23rd, and winners will be announced at that time.
Update: Winners have been announced here! Thank you to everyone who participated!_________
