A Android man lying on the the back appears at the screen. Keep the volume up button pressed for about 6 seconds until a new menu appears. Select within this menu now "Wipe Cache Partition". Confirm it with the power button, so that the wipe is performed. After clearing the cache the Nexus 5 can be restarted. Done!

I tried to do this and failed as the instructions are actually slightly wrong, these are more thorough and it finally worked!<br /><br />If your device is switched on, power it off.<br />Press & hold the Volume Down and then press & hold the Power button simultaneously until the phone turns on. You'll see the word "Start" with an arrow drawn around it.<br />Press the Volume Down button twice to highlight Recovery mode.<br />Press the Power button to start Recovery mode. You'll see an image of an Android robot with a red exclamation mark<br />While holding the Power button, tap and release the Volume Up button - a menu should appear. (Do not hold the Volume Up button down as this will reboot the device).<br />Use the volume buttons to scroll to "wipe cache partition" and press the Power button to select it.<br /><br />Note: This process can take from 1 second to 10+ minutes to complete and might look like its “boot-looping” -- don't touch it.
