I was texting on my phone when it crashed. I was running SlimKat official release with franco kernel 25 for two weeks. Phone had been running great! Now it bootloops on the google logo and doesn't recognize the 32gb of memory. Wont mount any of the partitions in recovery. When in recovery (TWRP) and I opt to reboot to bootloader or reboot is says NO OS. Now as well all I can do with fastboot is relock the phone. I wanted to reflash the recovery to stock as Google will exchange the phone. When I try and flash the stock recovery in the terminal command window everything looks like its flashing good however when I boot into recovery it still boots TWRP.
Help please.

what do you mean all you can do is relock the phone in fastboot? that doesnt make sense.

what commands are you trying to do when you flash the stock recovery?

Flash the entire factory image. If you get errors your eMMC is probably toast and you should warranty it.

You ask because of his troubleshooting expertise or because you think that toolkits and CF.. are killing emmc?
I have seen this problem from people using the manual method and the toolkits as well.
I strongly think that the question to ask is whether they have a 16GB or 32GB phone.

I think that toolkits are killing emmc because I saw more users who used toolkits for rooting, and then their phones just dead.But maybe it's just a coincidence..

I don't think it's tool kits either. Keep in mind that more people use tool kits than don't. So even though you see more of what appears to be emmc failure with tool kit users there are more of them. I've seen it with people who have not used tool kits a well as those that have.

It's not toolkits. It's the luck of the draw. How many N5's sold compared to how many that have had fried nand is what needs to be looked at. That figure is going to be very hard to come by. It could be a normal percentage of failure or it could be high or low. Did Google cheap out on the memory to make the phone more affordable? Or did they put quality memory in and cut some other corners as well as cut their profit margin? All questions that none of us on XDA will, most likely, ever know. The one thing you can be certain of though, toolkits aren't the cause of these failures.
