comment Unrooting Galaxy Nexus - dies when plugged in
Oh, one other thing to try: on your phone's shutdown menu (the one you get when you hold the power button), is there a "reboot" option? CyanogenMod has one that lets you reboot directly into bootloader mode, and I think AOKP does too, though I'm not sure. That might work if the volume+power button combination doesn't.

Well, I provided a link to Google's page with the original ROM (and now the 4.1 one is available there too). You don't need a nandroid backup; that's just an alternative that would've let you avoid wiping your data too. You may find these directions more helpful than mine, but if you truly can't get into bootloader mode, then a) something is seriously wrong with your phone, and b) you're probably hosed.

You say it "won't boot", but have you tried what I described? Stopping at the bootloader is different from trying to boot the Android OS. If even that doesn't work, it sounds like a hardware problem, because flashing AOKP doesn't change the bootloader. Anyway, if you can get to CWM, did you make a nandroid backup of your original ROM? If so, just restore that.

comment How is the Gmail password stored in Android - and where?
Whatever they are, they're something that can be used to gain access to the account. But, @SachinShekhar, the accounts.db file is protected from being read by accounts other than system.
