Google Nexus 5 :: Restore Android To A Different Phone

Sep 3, 2015

I updated my rooted 32 gb nexus 5 to the latest 5.1.1. It was not easy and I ran into all sorts of hiccups that left me phoneless for a couple of days.My wife also has a rooted 32 gb nexus 5 and needs to upgrade. I don't want to go through all the headaches I had with mine, so, can I safely transfer my android to her sd card and just restore it on hers? Will that work? Or is there something that is unique in each nexus 5 phone and android?

Google Nexus 6 :: How To Restore Android 5.0.1 (Stock) To Device

Feb 3, 2015

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).

Google Nexus 5 :: Will Phone Get Android Updates Without Activation?

Apr 6, 2014

I'm thinking about getting the Nexus 5 mainly for the price and fastest android updates. I know the phone works without activation with a carrier (t-mobile, sprint, etc.) But without a carrier, will I still get the android updates straight from Google?

Google Nexus 5 :: Where Is Call Log On Phone Running Android 4.4.4

Oct 24, 2014

I just got a Nexus 5 running Android 4.4.4 yesterday (graduated from a 3 year old Samsung Ace so I am a little overwhelmed by the fancy new phone!!). I can't seem to find a call log anywhere? When I hit the phone symbol, it brings up the 'speed dial' screen with the most frequently called contacts, but there doesn't seem to be the typical call history with calls made, missed calls etc....or at least I can't find it!! I missed a few calls today and after the notification disappeared I can't find the numbers again!

Google Nexus 5 :: Android 6 - Can't Access Phone Contents On Win 7 PC

Oct 10, 2015

I recently installed the OTA Android 6 update.All seems fine, except today I wanted to copy some of my photos off the phone and put them onto my PC. But when I connect the phone to the pc all it shows is the icon of the Nexus 5 but does not show any folders nor files! Any hidden setting somewhere that I have to enable or is there something else I need to do? BTW, I have my phone unlocked (not rooted) when I connected the phone so it is unlocked while connected to the PC via the USB cable.

Google Nexus 5 :: Google Is Unable To Verify That Device Of Software Running On It Is Android Compatible

Sep 11, 2015

I'm running Cataclysm ROM (the Sept. 10 beta), Franco kernel, and I'm rooted and use Xposed. I receive this error when I try to add a card in Android Pay: "Android Pay cannot be used: Google is unable to verify that your device of the software running on it is Android compatible". I tried disabling root entirely and using RootCloak (Xposed) to hide root from Android Pay and Google Wallet, but I still can't use Pay. Wallet still works as it always has.

Google Nexus 5 :: Android 6.0 - USB OTG Not Formatting

Oct 6, 2015

I have a flash usb memory I used all the time w/ my nexus 5, and ever since upgrading to 6.0, the os complains that the usb drive is corrupted. It offers to fix it by erase and formatting, however it fails, and the problem persists. Stickmount no longer works, and there's no way to access my usb. I believe the usb still works in recovery...

Google Nexus 5 :: USB Audio On Android 6.0 Marshmallow

Oct 27, 2015

I have two Nexus 5, one is running Lollipop 5.1.1, the other Marshmallow 6.0 (OTA upgrade).

USB Audio out works fine on the Lollipop Nexus 5: I can connect a USB DAC (iBasso D-zero MK2) using an OTG cable and play streaming music with Spotify, Google Play Music and local music files with Rocket Player. Connecting the same USB DAC with the same cable to the Marshmallow Nexus 5 fails: no sound when playing streaming music and local files using the same apps. (The USB Audio Player Pro app works fine on the Marshmallow Nexus 5, though, allowing to play local music files via USB.)

I tried the "Select USB Configuration" setting in Developers Options and set it to "Audio Source", with no success. Also, the "Disable USB audio routing" setting in Developers Options is disabled.

Google Nexus 5 :: Bad WiFi Signal On Android 6

Oct 24, 2015

I flashed factory image of android 6 on the day of the release. I've had worse wifi signal than I had on 5.1.1, a very notable change. In my wife's nexus 5 I waited till the ota update, and that phone doesn't have the same issue. I've tried flashing the radio from 5.1.1,but didn't see any change. I also refreshed to stock 6.0,and performed factory reset.

I'm at like 60% signal when sitting next to the router.

Google Nexus 5 :: Android 5.01 - Verification Failed

Mar 26, 2015

Okay so I've just received a refurbished Nexus 5 from Google as my old one had a hardware power button fail. Anyway I've decided this time round I'm not going to root and wanted the phone completely stock so thought I would do all the OTA updates it gives me before I start messing around with it but have a slight problem.

The phone came installed with 4.4.2 and did an over the air update to 4.4.4 it now wants to upgrade to 5.0.1 however whenever I download the update which is 479.5MB it downloads it and tries to 'verify' install and then I get a 'verification failed' every time and it doesn't install? (may I add I have literally not touched the phone it's come straight from Google, the only thing I've done is logged into my Google account and updated whatever stock apps needed updating in the play store)

Google Nexus 5 :: Android File Transfer

Sep 7, 2015

My nexus 5 worked perfectly with Android File Transfer, and suddenly, about a week ago it stopped working, nothing has changed in that week, except that AFT was behaving in an unexpected manner and I force quit it several times. The device shows charging but no connection. When I open AFT, it says plug in the Android device.

I did usual troubleshooting:

1) checked on the mac attached devices, my phone wasn't one of them
2) re-installed Android File Transfer, same issue
3) trying changing the settings on the device - turning off and on the USB debugging, changing type of connection with the computer from Media device to camera and back.
4) Restarted both devices and tried various cables, still nothing.

I use Toolkit to Flash stock + unroot and it worked and i didn't lose any data (Must go to option and check unwipe data). I first unroot using supersu but that didn't work, just want to share it.

Google Nexus 5 :: Can't Get Android File Transfer

Oct 26, 2015

My nexus 5 is caught in the bootloop on marshmallow and I dont know how to even begin to address the problem. Power button isn't stuck as far as I can tell and I can't get android file transfer to even detect it for obvious reasons. I presume I need to flash a new version of the OS to my phone but that has never been my area of expertise.

Google Nexus 5 :: Android 6 - Titanium Backup USB-OTG

Oct 6, 2015

I'm using Titanium Backup and my backup folder used to be a USB-drive I mounted with Stickmount.

Now, with Android 6, Stickmount no longer works for me and the built-in USB-OTG mount takes over and mounts the USB drive to /mnt/media_rw/SOMEFOLDER.

But with Titanium Backup, I can't access this folder (folder chooser has no permission to move into this folder).

So, is there a possibility to access the USB drive in another way or do I have to do backups to the internal storage and move it to the USB drive manually?

Google Nexus 5 :: Android 5.1 - Camera Can't Connect Ever

Mar 16, 2015

It appears this is long-running problem plaguing N5's for some time. I saw sporadical "Can't connect to camera" on 5.0.1 but after update to 5.1 (I flashed the stock image) I literally cannot get the camera working for more than 1 unlock session.

I did have root but I thought it might be a problem so I unrooted and reflashed stock, but no dice. The only other thing I can imagine to do is factory reset, but I have a few security apps that will need some time to be setup again (mostly banking and 2 factor stuff), plus I am not sure if I can restore data w/o Titanium using Google's new 'Restore', so I'm keeping the factory reset as last option.

The only apps which *may* be accessing camera are Trusted face unlock, Whatsapp and Hangouts.
