So i updated my (not a year old) nexus 4 yesterday and today it died.

First off:
Ive never done any rooting, OCing or anything else fancy with my nexus, nor has anyone else.

Now, some time today the nexus got stuck in a bootloop, it was freshly recharged so it kept rebooting.
In the beginning full boots, after a while it got stuck at the 4 circles, later at the google logo, until now: completely dead, i suspect because of a drained battery.

I've been recharging the device for a few hours now, the red notification light keeps blinking and there's no hope for a (safe) reboot (yet)...

Any advice?
Do i keep charging it or is it a lost cause?
I'd rather not tinker with the device's internals, in case i would void the warranty.

Is your bootloader unlocked? Charge it up and then flash the factory image with fastboot.

My guess is that some files must have been corrupted during the update. Can you boot to fastboot mode (hold down both power and volume down)?.

My phone is acting similarly since yesterday. Stuck at bootloop even after reflashing the whole 4.4.3 factory image. Even recovery works fine, I just can't get past the boot animation
