    Device info: Nexus 5x, stock Android N preview, systemless root

    My phone randomly rebooted into a bootloop earlier today. I have been completely stable until this. I can reboot to the bootloader but cannot make it any farther (can’t even reboot/fastboot to recovery). If I try to boot to recovery, it just returns to the bootloop. So far I have tried:

    Wug’s toolkit:
    1. Flash Stock + Unroot (with Soft-Bricked/Bootloop option) to the new Android N, most recent Dev preview N, and the latest 6.0.1.
    2. Flashing custom recovery
    3. Flashing stock recovery
    4. Locking/unlocking bootloader
    ***Everything appears to go fine (no error messages, phone reboots into bootloader as expected) but when the toolkit attempts to reboot the phone into recovery, it just returns to the bootloop.

    I have also tried the following manually (ADB):
    1. Flashing firmware
    2. Flashing custom recovery
    3. Flashing stock recovery
    ***same result as Wug’s toolkit…everything downloads and writes but when the phone reboots, it gets stuck in the same old bootloop.

    Nothing seems to work. Please help…I’m at my wits end.

    I’ve let the phone bootloop for over an hour multiple times.

    Try an alternate USB port. Also try to flash an older android, like marshmallow. The goal is to just get your device to boot up fully. Then you can reflash to N.

    Also a basic factory reset is a good option for fixing bootloops:

    Thanks for the advice. Unfortunately, I still cannot get past the bootloop or bootloader. I just tried alternate USB ports (twice) and I tried going go 6.0.1 again, same problem.

    Unfortunately I can’t perform a factory reset because I can’t get to the recovery…it just goes back into the bootloop.

    Any other ideas?
