    Default Wiping Cache Partition takes long

    Hello is anyone else nexus 5 taken a while to wipe cache partition? It takes a good minute or 2 on the nexus 5 but on the nexus 4 it takes 2 seconds. Both are running Android 4.4.2 the nexus 5 and the nexus 4.

    Yes, I noticed this as well. It took about 30-40 seconds for me. I was afraid it had hung up, but then the Recovery Menu reappeared, and I breathed a sigh of relief.

    Factory reset also took forever when I sent my original back to Google when I got my replacement. 15-20 minutes. I was starting to worry.

    I'm running the latest build of TWRP [2.6.3.4] & wiping cache & Factory Resets takes less than a second for me. I did however, experienced the slow wiping with older builds of TWRP
