Unhappy [Q] Galaxy nexus GSM unusable

Hi, today my GN decided to stop working normal. Application started to crash randomly, if I try to connect to the internet it just reboots, and it reboots randomly too. If I try to perform a factory reset it just doesn't do anything, even using the recovery mode (latest cwm). If I delete or copy files on the device, when I go check if they are there, the delete files are still there and the new ones aren't anywhere. So, I tried everything but I didn't have any results. Do anyone know what could I do? How do I perform a hard reset? I'm a little bit desperate. And a little bit angry eheh

I'm sorry, hack the what? What do you mean?
So something inside is actually broken? It started acting like this yesterday morning without any motivation. Maybe it was after getting very hot for a long time..

(Google, up there, are you telling me to buy the Nexus 5?)

Ahah ok, I imagined it wasn't referred to my situation
Anyway, another problem I found is that error I get when I try to install (sideload or directly from the internal memory) a rom using the recovery: "symlink: some symonds failed Error in data/... rom.zip (status 7) installation aborted"
