    I attempted to unroot my phone with kingo and it will not fully reboot, it is stuck on the red green blue and yellow dots that circle around.
    Nexus 5 stock, just rooted and Selinux(sp?) set to permissive, nothing special besides that done to it.
    5.0.1
    I can get in to stock recovery, I wiped the cache and even attempted a factory reset, still nothing but rotating dots, I let it sit almost 24 hrs and it doesn't change.
    Any suggestions?

    You might have to consider reflashing the stock images through either a toolkit or ADB.

    I tried the factory image off googles site, I keep getting e:footer is wrong, e:signature verification,
    failed
    should I be side loading the .tar instead of the .tgz?

    Have you tried a toolkit instead? I occasionally use Wugfresh, and it works quite well.

    Rebooting into recovery can be useful. Sometimes you get caught in a bootloop, sometimes it is just good to use for other activities that can be done through the UI, but as always, it is good to know more than one way to interact with your phone.

    Recovery is for what?

    Simplest answer, recovery can be used to clear the device cache, sideloading updates, factory resets, etc.

    I will show how to boot into stock recovery, and how to do a simple task, like clearing the device's cache. This exercise will give practice on booting into recovery, and allow you to perform an action that is NOT detrimental to the device.

    [INFO]In fact, clearing the device's cache is actually something that should be done after an update.[/INFO]

    Volume buttons navigate through choices, and power accepts.

    1. Power off the device.

    2. Hold both volume buttons and the power button. When you feel the vibrate, release.

    3. You will see the Android logo laying on his back with his chest panel open, along with the device info and options.

    The home screen for rebooting into recovery.

    4. Use the Volume rockers to navigate to Recovery Mode
    Attachment 106304
    This is after pressing volume down a few times. Click Power to accept

    5. Once there, you will see No Command. Press and hold Power and click volume up like you want your music to go up one increment.

    6. You will then be shifted to the Recovery screen.

    7. Use the volume Rockers to navigate to what you would like to do, and power accepts the selection. Use the rockers to go to 'Clear Cache Partition'.

    The option you need to get back into your device normally.


    I have cleared cache several times on my Nexus 5, and each instance takes between 5 and 10 minutes.

    Welcome to the forums. You may need to consider reflashing the stock ROM. Have you tried a reset? Either way you will probably lose your data.

    Hello,

    I am using Nexus 5X from last one year, it was good. But 4 days back it got shutdown by showing 'Google' icon at the end, after that I tried all the ways to turn it on but it is not getting on. Before it was shutdown, battery was completely charged and I need to mention here that day I went for trip, took lot of photos and videos, during camera mode on it got shutdown.

    I tried all the way mentioned in this site, keeping charge for longer time and holding Volume down+ Volume Up+ Power button press for some time. Nothing is working for me to turn it on.

    In my mobile case, from last 4 days what I observed is, I tried boot loop cache memory clear(Volume down+Volume up+power) steps as you mentioned here, for me it is working till 4th step(recovery mode) after that 'Google' icon is coming on screen(5th step 'no command' option is not showing) and it is shutting down again, no response after that. Once it shutdown like this No response for complete day on screen. If I try any option also nothing response. Once in two day I can try boot loop option once, after that no response.

    Please let me know what is the issue with my mobile and how I can resolve the issue. I am trying all the way from last 3 days but no response.

    Welcome to the forums. You may need to reflash the stock ROM. However, this will most likely wipe the device of all data, causing you to lose your pictures.

    You can also try to reflash the stock recovery. That may allow you to complete the cache wipe.

    Thank you for the quick response..

    Is I can do this reflash of the stock ROM myself? I never did that and I am not aware, It will be more helpful if you give me a quick guide how I can do this, because no response in my mobile and if I connect system it is not detecting also.

    And I purchased this mobile in India, but currently I am in UK, here I can not able to give this to service centre since it is purchased in other country.

    Please guide me on this.
