Default [Q] Nexus won't boot after update.

Hello,

After updating my Nexus 4 the phone won't boot beyond the Google logo.

I tried to hardreset the phone but when I select "Recovery mode" the phone show me the Google logo and just gets stuck there.

Any ideas?

Reflash everything with fastboot or just enter the stock recovery and factory reset. You can get there by choosing recovery at the bootloader and then by pressing vol up + power when you see the green logo with the exclamation mark.

The.sig errors are ok. The failed to allocate error is not. Try to flash just the system.img. fastboot flash system system.img.

Try to flash a custom recovery then and see if it works. If it does try flashing the zip from recovery. On my HTC sometimes flashing from fastboot would result in a bootloop while from recovery it worked perfectly fine.
