    How do I clear all my unnecessary data? I have Cache Cleaner by JRummy but I think that only empties the app cache. Are there other areas I can empty?

    I've read in some posts where they say to hold down volume and power to get the android with an exclamation point. I've tried it several times but I only get the android standing there and a big green start arrow pointing towards the power button. The bottom of the screen says Downloading... Do not turn off target!! It stays on this screen forever. I'm not able to scroll or do anything with the volume buttons.

    I've been looking at the Turbo but I don't feel it's necessary to drop over 500 for it to keep my unlimited data so I'm trying to get as much out of this 3 yo phone as I can lol! I'm going to wait until this really starts to crap out.

    I'm. Not around my Gnex, but I think it's "hold both volume up & down plus the power button" to get into recovery

    That worked! Ok now, I go into recovery mode and it gives me the android with the exclamation point. Where do I go from there? I've tried holding the volume buttons but it doesn't do anything.

    When you get to the no command/android screen press and hold the power button and then hit the volume up and hold both for just a second and release both. This will take you into the recovery menu. There you can choose wipe cache partition.
