hey all

got a gsm GNEX that was stuck on bootloop.

have tried every way to unbrick it i could find flashing with odin, rootkit and fastboot and adb... have flashed android 4.0, 4.2, 4.4 and CM-11

same thing happens everytime every seperate flash the phone will reboot 5-10 times then say "updating apps" will finish that and go into a constant bootloop...

im wondering if the phone is either hardbricked or if its a hardware failure.

any help would be great

cheers

Hardware failure. Your internal memory is fried. Try to lock the bootloader. If its still unlocked on boot, you know it for sure.

Thats a good sign. Back up everything and unlock it again. Then try to flash the stock rom via fastboot. Without any toolkits!

Did you use the flash-all.bat or did you flash everything manually? The lines could be an electrical issue or its an issue with the screen..
