It is probably apparent that I made an account for the purpose of creating this thread, but I truly have nowhere else to turn. Help would be appreciated.
As the title states, I have no experience rooting/flashing/etc. I decided to venture into that realm today and successfully rooted my Galaxy Nexus. I installed ROM Manager and flashed Clockwork Recovery for GSM [because I followed a guide].
I tried to flash Codename Android via Recovery Mode but I realized that the Codename Android is a CDMA ROM. The mistake I made was to flash the gapps first. After that, I booted up and none of my google apps work, such as Gmail, Market, and even the Home button. I'm not sure exactly what I did after...but now my phone is stuck at the Google splash screen with the unlocked padlock on the bottom of the screen. I tried to factory reset via Recovery Mode and emptied all of the caches. However, I cannot even get past the Google splash screen anymore. Any insight would be greatly greatly appreciated! Thanks!
