Lock and re-Unlock the bootloader vía fastboot. This ensures the wipe ALL data, including the sdcard storage.
The proxy is playing nasty today.

Flash the factory image. You have to flash a recovery and root it afterwards though. But this will wipe absolutely everything and fix any software bugs that occured through any kernels or roms.
