My son clued me in to this track. It reminds me of an ethereal Richie Hayward.  Really great.

For anyone who wanted closure from this morning's Nexus 6 fiasco:

Okay, I kept getting an error on the bootloader, and I couldn't get the new bootloader image to flash to my device. I tried everything I could think of, including all the thigns suggested by folks here.

So I decided to OEM lock and unlock it again, in the hopes that somehow that would kick loose (technical term) whatever was preventing fastboot from writing the new bootloader ... AND IT WORKED!

My device is currently restoring everything from yesterday's backup.

Thank you for your kindness and willingness to help, everyone!

Glad it worked brother. My bootloader seems to be OK. There's nothing preventing my fastboot from doing what it needs to.

I expect this to be the most polarizing episode of the season.

After finding themselves declared terrorists in Nestora, the party follows Aucker — a friend of the Beer Baron — to the Nestoran sewers in order to escape their current situation. The city above may have held danger for our adventurers, but will they find even more peril in the ancient city below?

This is just fantastic, and now I have a go-to video to show people who ask me what games I suggest for couples to play.

I think I bricked my Nexus 6 ... I'm hoping that someone reading this can help me save it.

So I had the CM nightly for my device on it (shamu for lyz28j) and everything was running like a dream. Then, yesterday morning, all the google services started crashing and locking up my device. I presumed that this was caused by my one of my security cameras sending almost 500 emails (with images) overnight, because a spider built a web in front of it.

I rebooted the phone after I'd deleted all the emails from my desktop, and it worked normally for a little bit, but then I started getting the Google Services error popup again, followed by nearly every app on the device stopping unexpectedly.

I figured that gapps must have gotten messed up somehow, so I booted up recovery and tried to reflash the gapps package, and that's when everything went to hell. TWRP couldn't mount /cache or /system, and everything I tried to repair that using the tools available to me failed.

Finally, I erased system and cache, and since then my phone just sits on the blank screen that says GOOGLE when I try to reboot it. I thought maybe it needed lots of time to create new partitions or something, so I left it on that screen for two hours last night, without any changes. Before bed, I decided to do a factory wipe/restore from the bootloader, but it just stayed on that same screen for nine hours.

So this is where I am now, and this is why I think I bricked my phone.

I downloaded the stock image from google, and I tried to run the script to flash all, but that failed.

This is what it looks like when I try to flash just the bootloader:

Bort:shamu-lyz28j wilw$ fastboot flash bootloader bootloader-shamu-moto-apq8084-71.10.img
target reported max download size of 536870912 bytes
sending 'bootloader' (3807 KB)...
OKAY [  0.182s]
writing 'bootloader'...
(bootloader) flashing partition ...
(bootloader) This may take a few seconds if a
(bootloader) different partition table is being
(bootloader) flashed since we need to backup
(bootloader) and restore a few partitions

(bootloader) Flashing backup GPT image...
(bootloader) Failed to write EFI backup GPT header.

(bootloader) Failed to flash partition
FAILED (remote failure)
finished. total time: 0.451s

I can't figure out why it won't flash the partition, and I'm pretty sure that's the root of this issue.

Can anyone help me?

Been curious about this one so glad to see it pop up on Tabletop. Hoping for Flying Frog's game, A Touch of Evil to pop up for Halloween as thinking the Tabletop crew would definitely dig that horror game as it has competitive/co-op or team based co-op/competitive.

Do you ever sleep? You are everywhere and as much as I enjoy watching you "When do you ever stop?  I know when I have many projects going on I find myself running around like the energizer rabbit. Then reality hits me and I get so depressed. Hang in there. Remember how much your family and friends love you.
