comment Updating from version 4.4 to version 5 let me to a dead phone
The "no command" screen isn't an error, that's just the normal appearance of the recovery system (which you told the phone to boot by holding the volume and power buttons). The fact that you can boot recovery means your phone isn't completely dead; it's just the regular Android OS that's (apparently) having trouble.

comment Previously Rooted Nexus 5 is not recognized via USB after stock 5.0 OTA update
"No command" in recovery mode isn't an error; that's just what the stock recovery looks like when you boot it directly (rather than as part of an update).

comment How can someone else read my Text Messages
Android Beam doesn't send any data unless the user of the sending device taps the screen to send what's displayed. You can't just suck messages out of someone's phone by putting your own phone near it.

comment Nexus 5 Change Resolution/DPI
You could, yes. But it's still simpler and safer to use an AVD.

comment Rubbish storage
It's unclear what you mean by "which was also as I was only allocated 8GB", but if the salesperson lied to you about the storage capacity in order to sell you the phone, you should return it with a complaint.

comment How to mount ext4 internal memory - Android 4.4
What device? What happens when you try those mount commands? (And what are you trying to accomplish by apparently reformatting internal partitions?)

comment Notification Access in KitKat
It's not there on mine either, but I don't think I have any apps installed that have permission to access notifications anyway. Maybe the setting doesn't appear if there'd be nothing to configure?

Have you looked at the Storage screen in Settings? What does it say?

comment Boot Android Virtual Device into recovery mode
An AVD may not even have a recovery mode. Recovery isn't a different way of booting the Android OS (like, say, Safe Mode in Windows); it's a whole separate partition with its own (minimal) OS, independent of the regular Android system. On a real device, the bootloader decides which partition to boot from (normal system or recovery), but an AVD has a different way of booting.
