Prompt GNex factory reset apparently doesn't write anything and I'm not able to update.

Hello, my gnex (maguro) started rebooting frequently (like every 30 seconds). I hope is not an hardware fault and now I'm trying to restore a factory image so I can rule out any custom rom-derived problems.

I'm trying to flash yakju-jwr66y the problem is when I flash the bootloader and radio everyithing is ok but when it reboots to install the rest of the system the bootloader and radio are still not updated!

If I try to update manually the bootloader this is what I get:

wax@pasifae:~/Scaricati/yakju-jwr66y (2)$ fastboot flash bootloader bootloader-maguro-primemd04.img
sending 'bootloader' (2308 KB)...
OKAY [  0.308s]
writing 'bootloader'...
OKAY [  7.971s]
finished. total time: 8.279s
wax@pasifae:~/Scaricati/yakju-jwr66y (2)$ fastboot reboot-bootloader
rebooting into bootloader...
OKAY [  0.006s]
finished. total time: 0.006s
But the bootloader version is still the primemd03! The same goes with the radio.
What is going on?

Probably fried EMMC. Try to lock the bootloader. If its still unlocked your EMMC is fried..
