    Default Pulling my hair out can't get clear the Partion cache.

    I now for the past hour am trying to wipe the partition cache but when I get to the last step where it shows the no command instead of it bringing me to the recovery menu it just reboots every time.

    To wipe the cache partition, follow these steps:

    Turn off the device.
    Press and hold the Volume Up and the Volume Down and Power keys at the same time for about 10 seconds.
    An image of an Android lying on its back will appear.
    Press the Volume Down key twice until "Recovery mode" appears on the screen.
    Press the Power key to restart in "Recovery mode."
    An image of an Android with a red triangle will appear.
    While holding down the Power key, tap the Volume Up key.
    The Android System Recovery screen will appear. Release all keys. (But it does not appear it just reboots the device and brings me back to the lock screen every time)
    Use the Volume keys to scroll to wipe data cache partition and press the Power key to select.
    The phone will restart.

    Figured it out don't hold down the volume up key tap it a couple of times. The stupid instructions say to tap it once which does nothing or hold it down which just reboots the device.

    That's strange. For me, tapping the volume up key once brings me to recovery.

    The sequence you described from the instructions should be correct. You just have to make sure you don't wait too long between pressing and holding Power and tapping the Vol Up button. Say "1, 2, 3" at a comfortable even pace. That should be the pace at which you do the following:
    1. Press and hold Power.
    2. While holding Power, press Vol Up.
    3. Release both.
