Unhappy ditto

I'm having this same issue as we speak. It seems people on this thread have the same exact issue:

productforums.google.com/forum/#!topic/nexus/q5K6fefs2Gg

Details: 4.2.2 rooted, no custom rom. I *think* I saw a notification that I was running low on storage when I looked at my phone on desk, few minutes later got stuck in the boot loop.

Have tried flashing to stock, nothing has worked.

Would really, really like to avoid RMA.

Try this

First from fastboot, flash the stock cache.img
then do what's described here

I recently ran into a very similar issue and this fixed it for me.

Thanks for the links everyone has posted. I'll continue the research.

Biggest problem is you say to flash the stock cache.img, but I get

FAILED <remote: flash write failure>

everytime I attempt to flash anything, which I very much hope isn't a busted emmc.

WugFresh Nexus Root Toolkit v1.8.0

I've used his Toolkit to root my Nexus 4 when I first bought it (on release day) and never had problems.

Rooted my Nexus 5 when I bought it in Nov 2013 and everything was flawless until now.

That storage shortage notification keeps haunting me as the cause for all this mess.

Toolkits do more bad then good. Next time use something like cf auto root, super simple.

No, I mean like the programs you open up and it says Root, Unroot, Wipe, Unlock Bootloader ect.

CF auto root is just a .bat (I think?) Script that you run and it roots.
