I have got a N5 that is not booting (infinite boot animation loop). It's bootloader is unlocked and I can push stuff via ADB so I am assuming eMMC is good.
Also, USB debugging is OFF, phone is ENCRYPTED and NOT rooted.
I can't mount or modify /data and /persist partitions.
I tried reformating with ext2 to destroy encryption but it is not working. I also tried dd method but was unsuccessful.
I am not interested in recovering or rescuing anything from the phone.
Currently trying to figure out how to activate download mode so I can reflash everything using LG Flash tool.
Thanks in advance
EDIT: Bootloader is unlocked but I can't root the phone with wugfresh's nexus root toolkit.
