Default Probalby OTA Brick

Hey,
I've got a rooted Nexus 5 with android 4.4.3 on it.
on the past monthes it sggested me to OTA update but i knew that because of the root I'm not allowed to do it and ignored.
Yesterday, when I took my nexus out of my pocket it was stuck on boot screen (Google with open lock sign).
After some resaerch I realised that it might possible that it was open in my pocket and accidently OTA updta.

Now my situation is:
* Stuck on boot screen
* Can get to recovery but it says that I've encrypted my system.
* When charging - no charging screen
* Tried to manual flash rom/recovery/bootloade/baseband with fastboot and got error (flash write error)
* When opening shell I can clearly distinguish that some mounts are missing (like system...)
* Unable to factory reset / wipe anything.

Please if you got a clue how can I solve it write it down

Updates (For future googlers) :
* Tried to unplug the battery and plug it back but it didn't help...

Thanks alot,
Yaniv.

This situation can definitely occur with a bad flash / OTA. Unfortunately, all you can do is go into TWRP and do a full factory reset and wipe everything. Then boot into the bootloader and run flash-all in the factory image.

I forgot to mention that I'm unable to factory reset/wipe anything (I get the unable to mount problem)
I think that maybe my mass storage chip has fried

you dont find it.

RMA it or buy a new one.
Go back to stock on your nexus 5 using this guide: here
