    Default Nexus 5 - Fail to Boot

    My Nexus 5 crapped out on me today. I was using it when it suddenly restarted and began an infinite loop of load screen, saying its updating, than stating "Unfortunatly the process com.google.process.gapps has stopped."

    I attempted a wipe/system reset several times but it shows the same "failed to mount" error each time.

    Is there anything I can do at this point? Can I flash it via my pc?

    See error messages:

    Thanks!

    Welcome to Android Central! Yikes. Is your Nexus 5 rooted? Are you running the stock ROM? Are you even able to get to the Recovery Menu to attempt a cache partition wipe, as detailed in these instructions? [GUIDE] Nexus 5 Recovery

    Thanks for the reply. No, its not rooted. Everything is stock. I can get to the recovery menu in the instructions but all attempts at wipe/reset and clear cache fail.

    If all else fails, you could try flashing the stock ROM back on the phone. I'll have to link you to another site, because I'm not sure if there are any guides on AC: http://www.droid-life.com/2013/11/05...actory-images/

    Thanks for the link. I spent quite a bit of time trying to get this to work and I managed to get as far as this step:
    Nexus 5 - Fail to Boot-screenshot-2014-04-22-07.33.06.png

    I also tried flashing the images manually from the system-tools folder but got a failure for "fastboot flash system system.img"

    Also I noticed I had to run "fastboot oem unlock" to proceed with a few of the steps.

    Any ideas what next?

    Hmm, I don't have experience with the process myself, so hopefully someone else can help here.
