Exclamation [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?

Note:
-I am not rooted
-USB debugging is not enabled (and now I cant since it doesnít boot to OS)
-I'm on Ubuntu 13.10
-Also got Windows
- I got the files that I tried to install from here https://developers.google.com/android/nexus/images
Thanks!

I had the same issue and the solution was flashing stock android by Ncry (http://goo.gl/l0iuEn). If you havent used this software, go to the one click menu with the phone on bootloader mode.
Hope this helps!

Thanks! I would like to try his software but I cant. I only have Ubuntu on my computer as of right now. Should I still try with wine emulation?

Try this guide: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2010312 if you can get access to a Windows machine.

Did you try wiping cache, Dalvik, and data? Factory reset?

I did. Even tried from fastboot. What if I reinstall the system. And then apply an update from sideload?

Can you copy the list of text from the command window when you do the flash-all.bat.
