There did seem to be a couple files missing but I was able to do a dirty reinstall of the ROM I was using from the source in my download folder after the partitions reappeared and bam, I was back in business.
Now clearly what I was dealing with must have been a software issue and not a hardware problem, or at least not a permanent one but for anybody finds themselves with this issue its def worth a shot. A lot easier than going through unbrick process plus u don't gotta reconfigure everythingb or restore your files
In what way was your issue 'exactly the same'? Did your device also spontaneously reboot or turn off, or were you flashing new ROMs at the time? I don't think any of us have missing partitions, and personally, I wasn't even able to boot into recovery. I note that some are able to boot recovery, but aren't able to flash a new recovery, so this confirms that the flash memory has become read only. Also, it doesn't sound like you tried a 'fastboot oem lock', which would have failed if your problem was the same.
