Mar 18th 2015, 01:13

If you see slow downs after applying a new android update on your nexus device,  you need to clear/wipe its cache just to get it back to a normal and acceptable performance. The process is quite simple and described below. It won't always fix your problems, slow downs, etc but it's worth it a try.

  • Shut down your phone/tablet
  • Press and hold the Power and Volume Down buttons at the same time
  • Using the Volume button, select Recovery Mode (by pressing the Power button)
  • You'll see the android logo with an exclamation mark
  • Press and hold the Power and Volume Up buttons at the same time
  • Using the Volume button, select "wipe cache partition"
  • Wait a few seconds and "reboot system now"
  • Profit!

Hopefully it'll help your phone/tablet to get back to normal.
