Default [Q] Won't Boot, Won't Flash Factory Image

Using Nexus Toolkit and tried manually doing it in ADB.

I keep getting

FAILED (REMOTE FLASH WRITE FAILURE)

Over and over again. Halp? I looked it up and it seemed like some people had success in locking the device again for RMA, no such luck here

You need to unlock it first.

boot into fastboot mode and run:

Code:
Select Code
fastboot oem unlock
this will wipe all data but its needed and not hard to get everything back.

after that, download the google stock image from here: https://dl.google.com/dl/android/aos...y-ebb4918e.tgz for the wifi only version and here https://dl.google.com/dl/android/aos...y-49789b24.tgz for the mobile version.

if you have linux, google provides scripts in order to flash them.

Tried, fastboot hung at oem unlock, wouldn't do a damn thing. and tried to manually flash factory images via adb as well, same results.

Yeah I can get fastboot to show up. I've already set it off for RMA though.
