Hi All,

I got into this frustrating situation, I was on holiday and my Nexusus 5 went into upgrade mode to 4.4.4 I left it there after 4 hours it was locked on the boot logo with that 4 circle animation. It won't pass that screen. I decided to wait till I get home to try to do a manual update so I downloaded the

c08cce45be6d759d6fd29480f01128b18f7d4a11.signed-hammerhead-KTU84P-from-KTU84M.c08cce45.zip

And did via adb an upgrade from the device it said it was successful but it still won't boot.

I have all my photos from my holiday on the phone and that is preventing me to factory reset.

Is there anything I can do? or is really losing all my data and factory reset the only option? Maybe with a sdcard recovery tool I could try to recover the photos?

Cheers

Did you have a custom recovery before this?

All options are listed in my nexus 5 data recovery thread. Click signature to find it...

But if you don't have an unlocked bootloader, recovery is massively impaired

A factory reset does not touch the Internal SD Card. Your photos are safe. Factory reset should get you to boot. You will have to download your apps again but anything on the Internal storage like photos and music are safe unless you wipe internal storage in recovery (not an option in stock recovery)

Yes it does! In stock recovery, everything in /data is wiped including/data/media/0 or /sdcard if you will

Only custom recovery reset ignores /data/media/0
