so my phone bricked yesterday. completely stock and not rooted. anyone have any idea how or why this might have happened? everything was working ok and then out of nowhere it shut off and it does this all day now. already contacted google for the RMA and the support tech also had no clue what was happening. anyone else have this problem or know how to "fix" this?

i can't post the vid yet cause of the forum rules but i posted online and on the /r/nexus5 thread on reddit.

Can you Start the bootloader ??

---------- Post added at 09:19 PM ---------- Previous post was at 09:17 PM ----------

Try this please ....


1. Plug phone into wall charger and hold power button down for 15 seconds.

2. Unplug phone.

3. Hold Volume up+Volume down+Power button for a couple of seconds till it boots back to the bootloader.

It may not do this at the first try so you might have to keep on holding just the Power button for a while and then doing step 3 again.

Try try again and hopefully you'll be fine.

i've tried those methods above multiple times. wish i could post the video because it looks like something that isn't normal. it goes into bootloader for a split second then just restarts. it's weird

Do you have a stuck power button? That can create "endless bootloops"...
