HELP: Big problems on Nexus 5.
So, I'm in some pretty big trouble here. I did a lot and now I've finally decided to ask the pros on this one, and boy, could I use some help on this one. I know a lot of things but not all, yet I'm willing to learn, especially anything necessary. Sorry for the long post but I'll just post the full story in chapters so skip the first couple if you like and please read the last one.
The chapters are: Intro; It all goes 'downtown'; DIY; Discovery; Current situation.
I was a happy Nexus 5 user for about 2-3 months now. I was and am using the WugFresh Nexus toolkit and thus I was fully rooted, unlocked, enjoying the Xposed framework, so basicly a happy power user. Then 4.4.3 came out and I was excited for it. It first appeared and started installing, but nothing hapenned at the end. 2-3 days passed and the update nortification appeared again. I updated successfully, but I've lost root and the bootloader. No problem for an advance user like me and so I went to make backups and I've unlocked my phone and this is where it all goes to hell.
It all goes 'downtown':
After unlocking the phone booted up. I went past the Google logo and came to a picture with the android figure, standing and with it's belly/chest/body opened and a spinning figure of blue squares together spinning. The 'ears' were moving and there was a blue bar below it. The bar wasn't increasing but rather it 'skipped'? Like the blue bar you see when first turning the phone on. And there it was for quite some time. I had to shut it down by force. When I turn it on and some time passes the phone shuts down. I could not access restore, or boot the phone, but thankfully I could get into the bootloader and the phone was unlocked.
So I naturally tried to fix it by doing many things. First I thought it was a boot-loop and used the Toolkit to try to flash stock, with no results. Then I've tried many things; backups, flashing new recovery, bootloaders... Until I came upon flashing Kernels: the program first made me try one and to my suprise, the phone booted up. I've installed it, with no success afterwards.
Then I've discovered something that I think is crucial to my troubleshooting: with the endless hapening android logo, I could press the VOLUME UP key to access the restore and I've saw the logs from the restore, and after some time, the restore itself. The first think to do was to wipe it and so I did and the logs suprised me. They all said that it can not 'mount' many things. Same for deleting the cache.
After a lot of work I've managed it to boot up, BUT: my mobile network didn't connect. To top it all off, all google play apps and similar gave me the 'stopped working' message. I can't access the Google Play store (and for example; the camera app). Also surprising, I can not click the factory reset button on the phone. I can click it but nothing happens. I've put on many 4.4 versions, all the same. Also OTA updating old versions always fails. And the phone still can not 'mount' many things when wiping in restore.
Phew, was that some writing. So now I ask for your help. My first objective is to get the phone back to normal working state, no roots or unlocks, just in a normal working state from which I can continue.
So please; say whatever you've got in mind!
