Default NEXUS 4 BRICK: E: unknown volume "/sdcard/.android_secure" nexus 4

nexus 4 is running cm11 snapshot for a few days now, and i woke up to my phone in a boot loop. when i enter recovery mode the internal memory is completely empty, so .zips, backups, etc. i tried using adb sideload to reflash the rom but that doesnt help. the only thing weird thing that ive noticed is when i wipe data/factory reset i get the the following "E: unknown volume "/sdcard/.android_secure" nexus 4". Help?

Make sense that it can't find .android_secure if it can't find SD partition
Boot to fastboot and reformat
fastboot erase system -w
fastboot erase boot
And just for fun erase and flash a new recovery
fastboot erase recovery
fastboot flash recovery nameofrecovery.img
Now boot back to recovery and try to sideload a new ROM, something known stable maybe slimbean4.3
If you get errors note them
If this won't work than you'll need to flash bootloader and radio and then repeat the process above
