Booting Nemo on Galaxy Nexus i9250

I have been trying to get Galaxy Nexus (i9250) to boot Nemo Mobile lately and finally got something working. Very big thanks for all of this (again) goes to Thomas (also known as dm8tbr at IRC) for building the cable (Guide) for me so that I could get the console output available and debug the boot process much faster.
Here is some logs

There is still more work needed as e.g. the Xorg isn’t starting yet and the bootup is quite unreliable, but this is only the beginning 🙂
Ps. I will be providing more information soon with guide how to replicate the work that has been done. When I get all the pieces together.
