So I got myself in a situation..

I broke my Nexus 5 so I sold it, but I want to factory reset it because of data security, however I have TWRP installed which doesn't work with using the volume rockers and I can't connect with ABD either because USB debugging is off and I have no way to put it on without using the touchscreen...

Any way to reset it to factory defaults? I tried apps like Androidscreencast but they require ADB too.

Please help

You can connect to adb whilst in recovery you know?

Also, what about fastboot?

I assume that's the menu you get when you hold power+vol down? I can get into it.
I'm gonna try connect to ADB while in recovery, thanks!

Why don't you just flash the factory image while you're in fastboot.

No, just boot into the bootloader. Look in the general forum on how to flash a factory image
