Unhappy [Q] Bootloop and corrupt partition


I was experimenting with my N4 and formatted all the folder such as /sdcard, /aboot, /boot, /cache etc just to install CM 11 M7 properly without any trace of the previous ROM.

I tired to then sideload and received failed messages and 'rebooted' into recovery ie. PhilZ in my case. At the time of booting Philz started to throw cannot mount /sdcard and all other folder I formatted previously, error messages.

Then I tried to fastboot flash recovery just to make sure if any files of Philz got deleted, with no luck same messages. CWM also threw same messages.

Now I think it's something related to corrupt partition.

So my question is flashing the stock occam images images would heal the corrupt partitions or my phone is permanently hard-bricked?

Please advice.

Is it advicable to follow this guide:

I would try the second method you posted. After formatting all the partitions I'm not sure if it's going to work. What file system did you format them to?

Try the factory images first, just use the flash-all.bat in the zip. If you still have errors you're gonna have to fix with lgnpst (
