[Q] Stuck in bootloop and nothing I tried works!
UPADTE: My nvram folder is also gone. Is there anything at all to be done? Or have I purchased a paperweight?
UPDATE: Found out its my IMEI which has disappeared during the OTA from 4.2.2 to 4.3. This happened while 100% stock. Anyway I can get it back? Or at least boot Kitkat?
So my Nexus 4 stopped working after I finally decided to update it to 4.4.2. It was stuck at the starting apps loader then shut off. I proceeded to turn it back on but it got stuck in a bootloop. Iíve tried re flashing 4.3 through fastboot. It seems to flash fine (With the added error that "x".sig was not found) but again gets stuck at a bootloop. Ive tried flashing 4.4.2 the same way (with the same added error) to the same result. I also tried adb sideloading them but it either gave me a "status 7" or "E: signature verification failed". When I tried to "Fastboot update" it gave me the error that the partition to flash it on did not exist. im stumped. Don't know what else to try. Anything?
