    How to Install Custom Recovery in Google Nexus 5

    Google Nexus 5 will be great device for testing out custom rom. But to install that you will need a custom recovery. This recovery screen has advance options and allow you to test various things. From the same place you can also backup your phone data. But to install this you need two things. The first is an unlocked boot loader and second is rooted Nexus 5. So there are two separate guides available for that which can help you to first unblock the boot loader and then you can go ahead with rooting the device (provided below). Once you are done with that you can follow my instructions below which will tell you to install a custom recovery screen when you reboot your phone.

    The existing phone is locked and does not allow you advance features. Also there are limited permission to modify anything. The process requires flashing the phone with a recovery manage. So it is necessary that you must properly follow whatever is mentioned below Pre-Requirements. This is tested method but can be risky if not performed correctly. So you must properly checkout all the guidelines before moving ahead. Here we go.

    Installation Method :

    • Restart your phone in fast boot mode. For that turn off it first. Then press the power and volume down key both at the same time. This will boot the phone in fastbook or in boot loader.
    • Now copy recovery.img file in android-sdk-windows/platform-tools. You can extract android sdk on your desktop and inside that you will get additional folder platform-tools. Copy the recovery.img file in that.
    • Now connect the phone with pc through usb cable.
    • Run cmd and in that type cd Desktop/android-sdk-windows/platform-tools. This is to modify the directory.
    • Once you are in the platform-tools folder type fast boot flash recovery recovery.img to run the file.
    • Wait back for some time. You will get a notification about the process completion.
    • Once this process is over use the volume key and scroll down. You can will see a Restart Boot loader option. Choose it and restart your phone.
