Ok , this is the deal my fellow hardcore developers .... My Galaxy Nexus has a rare ( first time i see something like this in all my tinkering years ) condition where the memory of the phone is like in a locked state , you factory reset the phone .... enter the bootloader --> go into recovery and wipe cache , dalvik , data , etc ... all the wipes available and once the phone restarts everything is back there !

I tried the odin method (Nand Erase All) , odin fails when its writing the Image portion of the files ....
I tried cyanogen mod installer , cyanogenmod installer reboots the phone , goes into bootloader , unlocks bootloader , injects clockworkmod and then the software continues "installing" until the point the phone restarts .... guess what ? original software comes back !
theres no way to restore the phone ! and clean/erase everything on it , i tried the regular phone reset ... didnt work , phone goes thru the procedure but when it restarts everything is back ! if you uninstall an application once you restart the phone the app is back there ! the phone is not encrypted either , i sincerely dont know whats going on here and what i can do to factory reset this device ! open up to any suggestions and methods !

Not a rare problem at all honestly. Happens all the time with flash memory.

Two things to remember.
1. Not all NANDS are created equally. Some may last longer than others.

2. A galaxy nexus usually has more reads/writes than most phones.(flash more roms etc..)

Plus the majority of the gnexus are getting pretty old.
