Unhappy Bricked nexus 4?

So about 2 or 3 weeks ago, i rooted my N4 and installed TWRP. I used Nexus Root Toolkit. Everything worked perfectly until today.
I was using the phone and suddently it powered off. When I booted it up, it would stay forever in the loading screen.
I tried to go into recovery mode but it wouldn't load. After a few attempts, it finally loaded. I tried to do a factory reset, which failed with this log:

I tried to flash stock + unroot using NRT, but it also failed:
Quote:
sending 'bootloader' (2203 KB)...
OKAY [ 0.075s]
writing 'bootloader'...
FAILED (remote: flash write failure)
I even tried using force flash mode with no success.
What can I do?

Thanks in advanced,

The flash memory might be corrupted, or have some bad blocks. In this case, I know no other solution except replacing the flash chip. But I'm not all knowing. Wait for other replies

Seems like it could be a hardware fault, but I would definitely try just flashing the stock rom the normal way without the toolkit first.

I sent it to RMA and even though it was unlocked and without any ROM at all, they sent me a new phone
