    I was on Instagram, making a comment on a friends photo when randomly my phone froze (on Android N preview which I've been running for months now) and i couldn't press the home or recents button, everything was completely frozen for about 5 seconds. Then the screen went black and it was off. I tried to turn it back on but got no response. In about 20 minutes, after pressing/holding the power and volume buttons in random combinations for random amounts of time, it finally gave me the unlocked bootloader screen, then went to the Google splash screen, then black. It does this every time that I manage to get it to boot (which isn't often). I managed to get it to the bootloader, but recovery does the exact same thing except for no reason one time it booted fully into twrp where I flashed the stock Marshmallow rom and all. I tried to reboot and it told me I had no OS installed. So i rebooted anyway, since that made no sense, and still, black screen. I have no idea what's going on but it's very strange and I need my phone for tomorrow. This is driving me crazy :mad:

    It is strange. Did you do a full wipe prior to flashing?
    Let me see if I can find an expert @Brian706 @lunatic59

    If you made a nandroid back up you could try to restore. Also is a link to the source code.... Instructions for flashing the factory image in Fastboot. If you need something to read. ;)

    I never made a backup, but even if I did, I can't get into recovery anyways. Currently it wont even show the 'bootloader unlocked' caution screen. The most i'm getting out of it is a chime on windows when I hold the power button/volume buttons in random combinations. And it doesn't show up on my pc for fastboot, I checked.

    If it's making sounds then it still has a pulse. The symptoms are a bit discouraging. A stuck power or volume key sometimes causes problems like this.

    I managed to get it to the bootloader again. I don't suspect that it's a button issue, all the buttons work fine and it is staying on the bootloader.

    Have you tried the Nexus Root Tool kit
    http://www.wugfresh.com/nrt/
    Easy to follow instructions, will prompt you for information and has a soft brick/bootloop option.

    Yeah, but it didn't work. It still gives me a black screen. And i used the soft brick/bootloop option.

    You can try downloading and flashing the image manually or try the tool kit again to flash stock and unroot.
    Hopefully you don't have a hardware issue preventing writing the system.
