Phone Stuck In Time Warp
So I have no idea what is happening with my phone, but it seems to be stuck in a single moment in time. Any changes that are made, texts received, apps (un)installed are reverted on the next reboot.
This wouldn't be a problem usually, except my phone randomly reboots when I'm doing normal things. It's become pretty unstable and pretty much is unreliable.
Before anyone says "just factory reset it", I can't. Any attempts to factory reset, fastboot flash, ODIN, CWM reflash, or OMAP flash (I got desperate) SAY they are successful, but the phone reboots to the same state as it was before.
I'm essentially at my wits end. Any attempts to return my phone to stock do nothing.
Any ideas or thoughts?
I'm running a rooted stock version of Jelly Bean on a GSM Nexus if that helps at all.

Welcome to the forum! Sorry to hear about your phone issues. Hang in there and one of our Rescue Squad guys will be along to help you.
Possible that the files used for upgrade are corrupted? How did you do it? What did you use? What version of GSM Gnex do you have - i9250, M420 or SC-04d?

The rom was working fine for the entire time I had it, until one day when I decided to try installing Facebook Messenger, which is the last time I can remember my phone being stable.
Since it's been messing up on me, I've been trying to return to stock to start over again using the Google stock images on the Android dev website. I've tried manually flashing them through fastboot but it doesn't seem to be working (it says it flashes, but reboots to the same place it was before). In addition, any time I try to change the bootloader or baseband, it stays the same somehow. Even trying to use ODIN seems to have no effect. If I could just find a way to get the phone cleaned off and start over again, that would be swell.
I'm pretty sure I have the i9250 (16GB, purchased in Canada).
Yes you do have the i9250 im from Canada too. I was looking at the ROM link you provided, in the instruction the dev does not mention to upgrade the bootloader to JellyBean bootloader version. So i was wondering if prior to installing this ROM you upgraded the bootloader version. If not this might be one of the reasons you have problems.

Yes, I am currently running PRIMELC03 as my bootloader and I9250XXLF1 as my baseband.
Any attempts to change either one of these using fastboot do nothing. In all the time I've been using Android, I've never encountered this before.
Ok well I was wrong for that. Hope someone can help you out on that one.
As for me, just so you know I used this toolkit to flash an official Google release (Jelly Bean is available). Maybe you could try with that.

Did you have a clean nandroid

I don't. I'm pretty bad for remembering to make Nandroid backups.
That being said, I'm not sure why fastboot isn't allowing me to just flash a new rom. I mean, that should be something that functions independent of the recovery.
It's like my phone is in a read-only state, despite having an unlocked bootloader and having been flashing roms since I bought it in March.
I'm just wondering at this point if there is any way I can just force a bootloader change or something.
Been doing some Googling and I found this:
Guess it remained unresolved :/
Seems like everything I try still does nothing.
