Hello, I think I've bricked my device...

I had Google Play issues, error 403, 920, 923, so I tried a fullwipe which I had used without any problems on my Desire HD. But I've encountered big issues on my Nexus 5...

It's stuck in bootloop, but I can get it to fastboot and recovery. I can't get it to mount USB-OTG (think that's wiped)

It won't show up in ADB (I am in fastboot), worked BEOFORE I flashed Custom Recovery (it broke after I installed), and did not work before I got all the errors. I can sideload CM11, but flashing wont help.

Any thoughts?

I'll try to get adb to work in fastboot, reinstalling drivers etc....

Thanks!

EDIT: Here is the zip i flashed do a full wipe. So you scriptheads know what messed things up

Make sure you are using a recovery designed for the Nexus 5, and not the one you used on your old phone. Link is in my signature.

Flash factory images (return to stock). Link in signature.

You wiped your os. You either need to side load a zip with adb. Or return to stock with the factory image

Edit, what did you use a script to wipe your device for? That's crazy, especially since it's not for the n5. You may be hosed because that script messes with a whole bunch of partitions which I'm sure don't align with the n5

haha, I know, I wanted to wipe the device (get it?). I was affraid I had wiped the adb drivers on my n5 (lol), I got adb in fastboot to work, and I flashed stock image. Everything works now.

Glad it's working. You dodged a bullet. I'm sure you won't do that again.

You mean you got FASTBOOT to work in the BOOTLOADER.

BTW these Google play issues were happening all day today. It wasn't your device.
