[Q] Nexus 5 all data lost, phone is for the most part unusable.

The other day my rooted 32GB Nexus on 4.4.4 ran out of battery, and when I turned it back on, I was prompted as if it was a new phone. After setting it up, all of my data was gone. I noticed many problems after this:

  • My SIM card would not work
  • The majority of apps would refuse to open
  • Every time the phone is shut off, it would delete everything and make me set it up again.
  • Settings said that I had around 2.3MB of total system storage

Only one person I found had the issue, people said to format and delete the cache, but neither worked. After posting on reddit, one person told me to flash stock images. Since I had no other options, I stated following this guide:
(I am trying on a MacBook Air by the way)
I ran into problems with flashing anything other than 4.4.4 KTU84P,getting this:


-------------------------------------------- Bootloader Version...: HHZ11k Baseband Version.....: M8974A- Serial Number........: 04e46b5409d3538d -------------------------------------------- checking product... OKAY [ 0.100s] checking version-bootloader... FAILED

Device version-bootloader is 'HHZ11k'. Update requires 'HHZ12d'.

I tried with KTU84P, and ran into this issue with recovery:

sending 'recovery' (9284 KB)... OKAY [ 0.547s] writing 'recovery'... FAILED (remote: flash write failure) finished. total time: 2.544s

So my overall question is, should I be doing what I am doing, and if so, how can I get it to work? I need my phone up and running as soon as I can, and this is becoming very frustrating.
If more information is needed I can provide as much as you will need.
