Hi, I have a problem with my galaxy nexus: one day it began rebooting continuosly as soon as android started. I could not restore it to factory settings since I have no time to reach the menu before it restarts
I decided to wipe it through fastboot but it did not work: I tried many times, the terminal says "OKEY finished" but then the device is just like before, nothing wiped, nothing flashed

I cannot understand what's happening, everything I do seems to be restored to previous state after It reboots

Just one detail one time after rebooting it managed to connect to the internet and on the notification box it appears something that was quite similiar to a spam but I could not read it completely since it rebooted

It was totally stock before the error: neither rooted nor custom rom


thanks for any help!

Hi, i have the same issue here. Yesterday it began rebooting continuously and the factory reset doesn't do anything. It says "data wipe complete" but when i reboot the system it's still my acount and still rebooting.

Any ideas?

Even I'm having the same problem since yesterday. It just started randomly rebooting. Boots up and after around 30 seconds reboots. I was running CM11 - M7. The weirdest part is that even factory resets from recovery isn't wiping anything. Also flashing a new bootloader also didn't work out. The phone is always in the same state when it boots up.

Damn. This sucks.

Thanks for telling me. And you're sure that nothing can be done no?

No. The only solution is a new board (the NAND is fried and that's soldered on the board..). As said you are not the only one. It sucks though..
