    Default Cache Wipe

    How long should a cache wipe on the Nexus 5 take? I've been waiting 10 minutes now.

    If something's gone wrong how can I fix it?

    Depending on the amount of data it could take awhile. Let us know how everything goes once your are set back up.

    The actual "wiping" part (cache partition wipe from bootloader) really shouldn't vary in time depending on amount of data stored because it simply reformats the entire partition (at least, that is what it is CLAIMING it is doing). I imagine a 32GB model will take a lot longer than a 16. Haven't ever done this on the Nexus 5, but on the 32GB Nexus 10 it does take quite a while, perhaps 5 minutes or so?

    "10 minutes" on either sounds abnormally long.

    On my Nexus 5 16GB version the cache wipe usually takes about 5 minutes however on my Nexus 7 32GB version it does it in less than 5 seconds.

    Yeah, I've noticed that the cache wipe on the Nexus 5 takes considerably longer than on any of my other devices, like the 2012 and 2013 Nexus 7 and my old Razr Maxx. 10 minutes seems a little long, but I'm glad it finally finished.

    I have done many cache wipes on my N5. Each time took between 5 and 10 minutes.
