Phone Won't Boot. Hard Reset Not Solving Problem
After confirming my Google account, loading all my apps, etc., on my Nexus 5, I was prompted to download a software upgrade (I assume to the latest Android OS; sorry, I didn't pay attention and am not familiar enough with these things to know exactly what it was). I accidentally switched off the phone in the middle of the update. Since then, the phone simply won't boot. The screen with the 4 animated circles just hangs indefinitely. I completed the hard reset using these steps, but the problem persists exactly as before. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

You'll need to flash the factory images onto the phone.
Here's a guide on how to do it for the Nexus 7, but it's basically the same thing, just replace the images with the ones for the Nexus 5
