Broke my nexus 4
so heres the full story and please dont click away if you get bored
i saw a post somewhere about multirom for the nexus 4 that made me think i could dual boot android l (from xda developers) with cm11 from multirom
i downloaded multirom manager and saw an install thing. i tapped it and it gave me rom options i chose cm11 android 4.4.3 - 4.4.4and hit install.
it said it worked so i rebooted. it started booting up cm11 with a discolored version of the android l boot up sequence. it froze so i force shut down my phone and booted it up. it booted into multirom thing and i tried stuff and things and found the twrp recovery. btw i am used to clockwork mod recovery. i tried things to either get back to android l or cm11. a little while later i tried an advanced wipe. i checked all 5 boxes in one list and left everything else alone. it failed so i tried it again, unchecking the bottom option. it worked. but then i had wiped the sd card and all. i had no operating system installed. after some more things i tried, i decided to try to boot into the "internal rom" it said that there was no os installed and this has a chance of rendering your phone useless. at this point it was already useless so i did it. and now all my phone does is show the Google logo when you turn it on. it has no other things it can do, no os is installed, no features, not even any recoveries. no multirom no twrp no cwm nothing. just the google logo. SOMEONE PLEASE HELP ME TELL ANDROID PEOPLE YOU KNOW ANYBODY HELP WITH THIS.
long story short, my phone is a black slab that has a google logo on it and the appearance of a nexus 4 (obviously) and i need help or else i have to beg for a new phone (im only 12 yes im smart for my age) or wait for october when the nexus 6/moto x+1 comes out

At this point the only thing I can think of would be to flash factory images. You can find a guide on how to do so here: [GUIDE] Nexus 4 - Factory Image Restore
