Default GNexus Bricked?

So my friend has a GNexus, custom 4.4.2 rooted, I was using it and trying out Photo Sphere, I finished taking the pics and it started rendering, then near the end it just froze and rebooted, tried using Photo Shpere again, it froze so i had to pull out the battery and got into a constant bootloop "shows boot animation then restarts to google logo again and again".
so I just booted into TWRP and flashed franco.kernel, flashed it and now it works , though it does a couple of reboots on the Google logo then gets into the boot animation.
I'm just wondering what could be the cause of this issue? oh and this has happened before on 4.2.2 and i had to factory reset it and flash stock 4.3 img, then flash 4.4.2 to get it working.
Why would it do this?
and is there possibly any fix? because i'm pretty sure it's still unstable :\
Thanks for any help!
