Hi XDA,

my brother got his GNex wet and gave it to me. I took it apart entirely and let it dry overnight, I assembled it back together today but I can't get into the OS.
Bootloader, Fastboot, Download-Mode, recovery and ADB sideload all work fine but if I want to boot into the OS it just keeps rebooting at the Google-logo with the little lock at the bottom.

What I've tried so far:

Reflash the stock ROM via the Nexus Root Toolkit
Repartition and reflash stock ROM via Odin
Flash CyanogenMod in CWM

I've tried all of the above multiple times, I can't get it to boot.

Could it be that the internal memory is defective? If so, is there any tool that I could use to test it? Can I partiton "around" the defective parts?

Thanks for your time and help.

That's essentially exactly the same, all the toolkit does is execute the commands automatically

Fastboot does too with less failure chance and more input on what went wrong.

Okay I just did that according to this thread: http://forum.xda-developers.com/gala...nexus-t1626895 but it still doesn't boot properly. Any ideas?

edit:

I just noticed that:

Could it be that the Cache-partition is defective or something?

I can get to fastboot and download-mode as well, that's how I flashed the ROM and the stock recovery
