    I used Nexus Root Toolkit to unlock & root friend's Nexus Verison phone. All that went fine, then I used the Toolkit to flash "Shiney" rom. I don't know what happened but now it won't boot all the way (Stuck on colorful x logo screen). I can get into fastboot mode, but toolkit is having problems communicating with it - it can connect but commands fail.

    Also, in all the recovery mode screen shots I've seen there is a flash option but all I have are 2 wipe options & update via ADB or USB, and reboot

    How do I proceed? (either back to stock or Shiney rom)

    When you use the command "fastboot devices", what comes up?
    Also, did you make a nandroid backup with cwm or twrp?

    Well... this is weird. It just booted up & is rooted. When I was trying to fix it with Toolkit, I attempted to use it to go back to stock & also attempted to flash Shiny.

    How do I tell if its running Shiny or stock? Wouldn't I have lost root if it did flash stock?

    Thanks

    If you go into the settings, the build number would be a good indicator.
