    So here I am going to show you a process for Nexus 5. If you have this phone you can simply restore the original stock back using these simple method. The process is simple but it is essential that you must backup your data before doing the same. This process will also flash the rom and will restore the original partition back.

    Installation Process:

    • The first process is to install ADB driver in your system and configure Android fast boot. This is essential to restore the factory settings.

    • You will require Android SDK Standard for that. You can download that from the official site of Google.

    • Extract the files and keep them save somewhere on the desktop.

    • Create a folder Android-adb in that. From the exacted file move platform-tools folder in the root directory of your system. Which is the C drive.

    • ADB configuration is done, now the thing left is to configure environment variable. For that right click on My Computer > Properties > Advance > Environment Variable. Under System Variable select Path and click on Edit. You can also create the value. Here add C:\Android-Adb.

    • Now turn off your phone and boot in recovery mode.

    • Hold the Power down + Volume Down button. The phone will boot in recovery mode.

    • Connect your phone to your pc through original usb cable.

    • Go in the factory settings folder and run flash-all.bat file.

    • The flash process will take some time and at the end you will get the original rom back.
