    Same here... the Nexus 5 got an error and keeps booting (flying colored bullets) for almost half an hour now.
    Nexus 9 went trough without any problem.

    Think I'll have to hook it to a pc and manually recover tomorrow. Unless better solutions arise...

    Hold the power button until it turns of and then restart it.
    My wife got a problem with Google+ after that so we uninstalled it and restarted the phone and updated google+ again.
    After that it worked fine again.

    I just got the notification that the update is available, but before I actually download/install it, I was wondering if there's any reason to not do it? Are there any problems being reported by people already done the update? A reply would definitely be appreciated!

    Try wipepartition cache. Interesting to be to know what network. Is your phone branded by Operator or unbranded.

    Since I'm new I cannot post links - stupid rule!! - can somebody help me out?


    I managed to solve this issue, based on this thread:


    I did not have to follow exactly the instruction, but basically peformed the following:

    - I downloaded, unzipped in one folder this rom "Flash 5.0 N5-12-09-2014.zip" from here: ??
    - I immediately installed the UniversalAdbDriverSetup.msi in this folder
    - I downloaded, unizpped in same folder this zip "Recflashr.zip" from here: ??
    - I hooked the N5 to the windows PC with USB cable, put it in bootloader mode
    - I launched the script file From Bootloader.bat, followed the instructions on the PC screen


    The N5 needed 3 more upgrades (amongst the to hated update that blocked the device), but never got stuck again.

    You probably could try to flash to the newer rom Flash 5.0.1 N5-12-17-2014.zip, but I did not try.

    To be complete, I have to say, that before this I installed the Android Studio Package, and the USB device driver, but probably this dit not interfere with the above.

    The N5 is 2 days up and running, so it works.

    Good luck to all.

    Yeah, wipe cache and data. If that still doesn't work, flash the latest factory image.

    Just google search: "Nexus 5 factory images"

    Instructions for how to flash are readily available too, but I can't post links yet, lol.
