Today approximately 10 hours ago, while refreshing my facebook app, my Nexus 5x froze and rebooted. For 3-4 hours I attempted to get it to boot and it would display 'Google' for about 5-10 seconds then turn off. I am able to get in to fastboot mode; however, entering recovery mode only works about 1 out of 10 times.
A co-worker of mine pointed me to this forum to possibly reload factory image onto the phone. However, it seems a key component in doing so is unlocking the bootloader, which requires turning on dev tools in the phone settings. For reasons stated above, I am unable to do this.
Are there any other options for me?
I am having the same issue on my wife's 5X. All stock. Listening to podcasts on the way home and it shut down and starts rebooting. Never unlocked, never Developer mode. Now it just reboots every 10 seconds. I have tried Clearing Cache and ever a Factory Reset and that same thing. Something wrong with the December 2016 update?!?
EDIT: it is still on Nov update (N5D91L) maybe it was a bad update attempt..
EDIT2: This could be the reason...
Last EDIT: Hardware issue...
