If you're able to get into the car, pulling the hood latch lever the hood should open the doesn't use any power to open, it's all cable. If it still doesn't might have a stuck latch lock. Have someone try to lift the hood while pulling the lever see if that works. If it doesn't work, your hood latch is stuck, but it doesn't require power to open. Hope this helps you open it.

Any way to get in an escalade with a dead batery

You will have to get into the hood manually to jump the battery and the use the key less entry. Use a long flathead screwdriver and pop the hood latch. To do this simply push the latch horizontally with the screwdriver and the hood will pop open. Jump the battery and you will be able to get into your vehicle. I would then address the reason your battery dies if not replace it.

Battery keeps going dead. 06 ls430

With the engin not running and the key off, lift the hood and disconnect the positive lead on the battery. Then touch the lead back to positive terminal on the battery. If a spark is seen, there is something still on in the car. Could be the power mirror switch, seat heaters or even a car phone. Trial and error to find it.

Sorry I can't be more specific but that is the test.

Good luck.

Need an answer on the proper procedure for changing the battery on a 2002 Lexus LS430 so as not to lose any electronic data.

go buy a memory saver, (available at many locations that sell tools) plug it into the wall and then to the cig lighter/power port and then proceed to change battery as normal. once the new battery is in you can unplug the car. defer to any directions that come with your memory saver over mine since they are all different.

Battery dead in 2006 lexus ls430

well i would start with testing the alternator first. meanwhile get a battery maintainer/charger to charge to battery while not in use.
the alternator test will tell you if the alternator is charging the battery while driving or not. usually your local autopart store will test it for free

My battery is dead and the hood release is inopperable

The hood is always mechanical not electrical even on a Lexus. Find the latch on the left lower floorboard near where your left foot rests when you drive. I believe on a Lexus they are flush and sort of difficult to find but I know you will locate. You can even google your make and model and what you are looking for and you should find it. Hope this helps.
