I left it sit at the "downloading do not turn target off" for about 10 minutes and still nothing. Anyone know what we are missing?

Update: You have to tap the power button and volume up, not hold it. Took me 3-4 clicks but eventually I timed it just right. Must tap both at the exact same time and it'll bring up a blue/black menu. Hope this helps!

Hi, I'm in the N10 bootloop. I've followed the instructions and am able to get the red triangle state, but no amount of power and vol-up button clicking/tapping ever gets me to the described blue/black menu. The N10 eventually goes back into the boot loop. If I tap the buttons as instructed, do I have to wait for some period of time before the factory wipe menu comes up? Or should the menu appear immediately? Thanks...

Found answer - a better description for getting the N10 to factory reset/wipe - thanks to Murphy2712 in the androidcentral.com thread for "226044-how-unlock-re-lock-google-nexus-10-bootloader-mac-pc":

A better way of explaining it:
- press and hold power,
- press and release volume up => stock recovery should show,
- release power.

That did it for me! Have unlocked and rooted my N10...Thanks all...

You learn nothing doing it that way though :P

Nothing too complicated here though

Good luck.

Thanks mate. Should be a sticky.. saved my arse..

I cannot access the recovery mode

I tried the first option:
- 1.Power off your Nexus 10, and reboot it into fastboot mode by holding the volume up button, volume down button and power button.
No success, the tablet vibrates but stop in the black screen.

And by adb no sucess too.
- adb reboot bootloader
The Nexus 10 off, but does not start the recovery mode

Official 5.1.1

Someone has an idea to fix it?

This is a lifesaver. Very helpful indeed.
