Default How To solve BootLoop

hi people,
i am a new member of this forum so i can't yet post in "development area".
lt
i hope i can have the answer of my question in general area.

yesterday i update the last CM11 nyghtly and then i flash franco kernel. the result?? a BRUTAL bootloop.. nexus 5 was blocked on google logo.
in the cm11 thread lot's of other users have the same problem.. (only with last cm11 nightly)

i was unable to shutdown nexus 5 and i was unable to do everything..no recovery,no nothing!!! so the solution (for me) was to wait until the battery was totaly discharged. then i charge battery a little bit and then i went into recovery mode and fix everything flashing an old cm11 nyghtly.

the question is: the only solution in this case is this? when i am in a brutal bootloop, that doesn't allow me to do anything, i can only wait for total battery discarge?? is there any other method to enter in recovery or to shot down nexus?

p.s. i think that when the display shows google logo adb is not usable. but i am not so sure about that.

pps sorry if my english is not so perfect..

Lol you can always turn off your nexus 5 by long pressing your power button

Hold Power + Volume down during several seconds to reboot into the bootloader then you can flash Factory Images or enter into the recovery mode.

power+voldown wasn't working too.. nexus was completly locked. i was unable to do anything. no recovery, no shutdown..the only solution was to attend the discharging of battery

You have to wait around 10s. Is it what you did?

Well I don't mean to mock you here but it is very unlikely that the power button holding doesn't work.
I mean it's baked in even before the bootloader so if that isn't working then you have something seriously wrong with your phone!
