Nope, won't boot to recovery. All I have is the adb at the bootloader.

EDIT: Tried unplugging the USB while it was booting. This fixed everything! Thanks for the help!

What happens when you type in cmd: fastboot reboot recovery ?
USE Search: /this thread /all threads/Google before posting your question, you`re most likely not the first one having this issue

When you say it won't boot into recovery do you get the dead android with the red exclamation mark? That is recovery just hit vol up

You can't use adb at the bootloader
Only fastboot works

Always read the OP's of a thread and the last 2 pages before asking questions, unless there has been an update - in which case, read the last 5 pages!

nexus 5 | SlimKat | ElementalX kernel | Philz Touch Recovery

I do NOT reply to support queries over PM.

So I just tried booting it while unplugged from my computer and it worked flawlessly. This bit should be added to future unroot guides.

Thanks for the help!
