Just booted into twrp to see and the option is listed as internal storage, not SD.

@blade Just don't get confused and hit the format data option. You want to wipe not format.

Both wait.. Let someone more experienced reply.. Like xanthrax..
I'm pretty sure that there's an option called wipe data that wipes SD card in twrp .. Next to the advanced wipe option..
In cwm there is wipe SD or something under advanced..
@blade_ wait a second.. I think gapps gets erased.. Let a more experienced person reply..

Nexus 4 bricked by PAC-man
My Nexus 4 is truly bricked. It's not on some infinite boot loop or any of that bs. It's actually bricked. I installed the P.A.C rom like the post on here said to do. Since XDA has a bs rule about not being able to post in dev posts if you have no posts made yet I have to post my grievances here. Some of you might be thinking "Oh it's just some dumb kid who didn't know what he was doing" Nope I've been doing this to my phones for years, so I'm pretty experienced in this field. anyways.. I installed pac and it got stuck in an infinite boot loop..I said okay whatever.., so i went over all the normal stuff to get rid of the boot loop and absolutely nothing worked, so I went to my backups. I have 3 back ups or had I should say. Every single time i tried to restore my backups they failed completely..What the f*** did PAC rom do to my phone that I wasn't even able to restore my back ups?! I did everything and nothing works now the PAC boot artwork doesn't even show it's just a blank screen.

If you want to wipe all your personal data off the device, it means you need to wipe the entirety of /data, including the "sdcard" mounted at /data/media. In TWRP, hit Wipe, then Format Data and type "yes" to confirm. This will remove the data and the .apk for all apps you have installed, and erase anything you had stored on the sdcard. Gapps and other system apps will not be affected.

No... you're not bricked. What do you mean your backups "failed"? Was there an error while restoring, or did they not fix the problem? Okay, the PAC bootanimation doesn't show, but how about the bootloader? Can you get into that? How about recovery? You need to provide more details for sure. But you're not bricked.
