I'm missing something but since my Lollipop upgrade, the stock camera app will capture pics but won't let me review them. After I snap a picture, I have to leave the camera app then open the "Photos" app to review them.
I am currently running PureNexus and I do like it quite a bit. However, with Android Pay only working on systemless root (which is full of bugs) I am thinking about going back to stock.
My question is, can I install the stock rom, root, remove bloat system apps that I don't want, and unroot?
Any way for me to stay on PureNexus and keep Android Pay working that would be ideal as I am getting fantastic battery life. I am a light to moderate user and I usually have 50-60% battery left at the end of the day.
My mum's N5 is completely stock - I can't believe i'm having issues with the only non-rooted device in my house!
I applied the OTA 6.0 update but when starting the phone i get a never-ending loop of "unfortunately ... has stopped" about lots of apps, and google services framework, process.acore, play services, etc
I got into stock recovery and cleared cache, no change
Any way to fix it without wiping data/factory reset?
my Nexus 5 has recently run into a problem where it suddenly decided to get stuck in a bootloop. I figured I could just reflash the stock rom via the boot loader with the wugfresh root toolkit but that unfortunately didn't work. But by doing this I noticed that my bootloader was not staying unlocked when I try to unlock it. Every time I unlock the boot loader and it restarts the bootloader automatically re-locks. I then proceeded to try and manually flashing the stock rom files individually and unlocking the bootloader each time I flash a file which was really annoying. It still hasn't worked and I'm starting to get worried because I've also started to notice my recovery can't really factory reset or wipe the cache. Instead I get this message at the bottom of the screen:
E:failed to mount /cache (Invalid argument) E:Can't mount /ache/recovery/log E:Can't open /ache/recovery/log E:failed to mount /cache (Invalid argument) E:Can't mount /ache/recovery/last_log E:Can't open /ache/recovery/last_log E:failed to mount /cache (Invalid argument) E:Can't mount /ache/recovery/last_install E:Can't open /ache/recovery/last_install E:failed to mount /cache (Invalid argument)
So now I'm completely stumped, could this be the end of my Nexus 5?
I've been looking around, but I can't find anything to suggest root is available on the stock kernel. CF-Autoroot doesn't work for 6.0, and so far all I've found is root for custom kernels but I want all stock.
Now I need to use the stock email that comes with the device for work, but I can't seem to find it in the play store. Maybe I'm searching under the wrong name, but how I can get the stock email app back onto my device? Is the stock email even in the play store? If it's not in the play store, any good email app for businesses that uses exchange?
How do you change the icons on the Nexus 5 with stock Google Launcher? I used to use the Nova launcher b/c you could customize the heck out of it, but with the Nexus 5 I'm really happy with the stock Launcher and it's integration with Google Now. The only problem is that I can't seem to customize the options with the stock Google Experience Launcher.
I installed a custom recovery on my nexus 6 called Rastapop. Don't get me wrong, its a great rom, it's just not for me. I would like to completely revert back to android 5.0.1 because I loved it. I completely wiped the device before installing Rastapop, so I cannot simply "factory reset" my device.
I can completely handle the flashing process due to the fact that I am an experienced programer. All I need from you is the link to the Nexus 6 5.0.1 ROM, and the link to the Nexus 6 5.0.1 GAPPS (Google Apps).
I flashed a custom ROM to my nexus 5 and was using it for the last few months. But today, I decided to rollback to latest stock ROM. And I double clicked "flash-all.sh" and it failed after few seconds. I could not see what happened so I again ran the executable under terminal and seen it failed again. I just remmebered that I hadn't unlocked the bootloader before running the script. Now, the phone is not turning on at all. It only vibrates if I hold the power button for some seconds, 6 seconds actually and if I hold the button for longer times, it keeps vibrating every 6 seconds.
I am not even getting the Google logo thing.

A few concerns about my Nexus 6. It usually gets warm while charging using the stock charger. And I take it as usual.
For the past few days, I've noticed the phone discharge battery very fast. I get only around 3 hrs of SOT. Used to get 4.5 hrs till 4 days back. Today when I touched the phone while charging it, it was too hot to touch and even the screen was hot. I took it off the charger and switched the phone off.
Is there something to be concerned about here? Is there anything that I can check on the phone? Been running stock Marshmallow, an update I received OTA.
I have flashed various version 5 stock firmware's and the latest 6.0 using nexus tool kit, as well as specifically flashing only stock recovery using the tool kit and I cannot load into the stock recovery. I've spent hours looking for information on manually flashing the stock recovery without the tool kit but have found the instructions very vauge. Any information on flashing manually only the recovery would be very useful or information on why I may be having this issue.
I know every time i flash a rom it only shows about half of my internal storage. I have a 32gb version. So I end up having to go into a recovery "temp flashed" using the tool kit in order to clear some information and then i get my 32gb's back.
I"m wondering if the space being auto allocated or partitioned is interfering with the flash of the recovery..
Let say that i am downloading many photos from internet like wallpapers and stuff but that is not showing in Photos app of lollipop in nexus 5?? and after taking picture from my camera it get backed up on my gmail account, but then after when i dont get internet then my phone do not open that photo and keep showing loading circle, but when i do have internet i can see that pic again. and i dont want that kind of trouble.
I would like to completely purge all leftovers files from when I rooted my Nexus 5.
I tried something with another device I own - the Nexus 7 2012 - and that was using TWRP and remove all the files from "/". Of course, it would fail to remove everything (permissions?) and cause the device to freeze, but forcing reboot would allow to enter bootloader and flash everything fresh and lock the bootloader (I used Nexus Root Toolkit). It has not caused any obvious problems.
I was wondering what the best way would be to completely start fresh on my Nexus 5 while getting rid of all leftover files.
I desperately need more storage on this phone.. The only way I have found to gain extra storage is to have root and use StickMount. I have a lot of info and game saves that I don't want to lose to a data wipe though. Is there a safe root method on stock 5.1.1 that doesn't wipe data?
I'm now getting repeated notifications on my Nexus 5 (Android 5.0.1) about how Google+ (version 18.104.22.168189390) has backed up my photos. The same photos. Over and over and over again. It didn't do this in previous versions. I don't know if this is a Nexus problem, a Lollipop problem, or a Google+ app problem. But, how I get it to stop?
I have questions about animated gif file(s) which is send by Android Gmail as attachment My device is non rooted N5 with kitkat (4.4.4); gmail is 5.0.1 (1642443).
1) Unable to open gif attachment as animated file in gmail, I usually use Quickpic to open gif file in my device and in cloud storage because Gallary dose not work. But in gmail i do not have to option to choose the app, the default image viewer in gmail ( may be gallery ?) dose not display the animated effect. So i have to save the file to my phone or to Gdrive to see the animation. Is there a way to view the animation directly in the email without save the file??
.2)Could i send image files in Android gmail as 'In Line' Similar to the 'insert photo' function in desktop gmail instead of 'Attachment', how?
I can't seem to get a working recovery after flashing stock images with and without TWRP 22.214.171.124.
I followed these steps to upgrade to Android 6.0 after verifying the md5 checksum of my download:
adb reboot bootloader fastboot flash bootloader bootloader-hammerhead....img [it looks the same as before, but I did it anyway] reboot bootloader fastboot flash radio radio-hammerhead....img reboot bootloader fastboot flash boot boot.img fastboot flash recovery recovery.img fastboot flash system system.img
I have also tried with and without flashing cache
Then I go back into the bootloader and try to access recovery, but I only get the dead android with the red triangle.
I'm having the same problem with my Nexus 7 (2013).
