Nexus 5 overheating
@domubpkm never had such an issue with N5, only when hooked up to an external monitor.
I would suggest completely wipe the phone with fastboot, then install latest Android firmware, then switch to UT.
I experienced previously on Android phones such an issue when the upgrade process did not go well, or aka dirty-flashing some ROMs, then there was an issue with overheathing and some other issues.
Give it a shot, nothing to loose. ( backup your files before attempting to do this )
@Stefano Thank you for your advice.
Already done a similar procedure a long time ago with the well done Flohack https://forums.ubports.com/topic/815/howto-n5-update-baseband-firmware tutorial. And reflashed with wipe option several times. Nothing change. Maybe an hardware problem in my case, for my LG-D821 32 GB refurbished.. But it isn't totally blocking.. with a smartphone fan
@domubpkm does it overheats while browsing the net? It might be because of frequencies your carrier uses. Try to use differnt sim/provider if possible. Had simmilar issue with O2, changed to EE (UK ) problem gone. (on Pro 5)
@domubpkm But, have wipe the phone with fastboot commands or just wipe with installer? Fastboot formats the partitions, it can erase them then create a new ones a format them. Installer probably just wipes without formating. It might leave some paths/ directories/ files behind... Look up formats commands on Google. And I think it might help especially to your Nexus 5.
I would erase and format partitions and then flash Android anew, from there you know what to do to put UT on it.
Installer probably just wipes without formating. It might leave some paths/ directories/ files behind...
What exactly does the Wipe option do ?
@domubpkm I have no idea, presume just format data partition???

That's very interesting, curious how there is only one radio image for both devices.
The firmware is the same, but the hardware supports different bands, IIRC.
You are correct, at least according to the interwebs.
Wipe should be done by formatting the data and cache partitions. No other partitions are touched on ubp-5.1 (everything that wasn't a Canonical device) installs. Logo, boot, and recovery are wholesale flashed, not formatted.
I don't know if a complete reformatting of the phone and a complete reinstallation of the latest version of N5 compatible android and the latest UT version will have a positive effect but why not.
But as I don't want to render unusable my tel which still works correctly out of this overheating problem especially when surfing the internet (not in Hotspot mode). I would need a very precise step-by-step tutorial with the commands used, which will probably be useful for many.
If someone has already successfully completed the procedure and who can write a precise tutorial, that would be great. The starting point is a Nexus 5 under UT.
I will do this with Ubuntu 16.04.
I will wait for the OTA 10 to be published and do probably this during my next holidays...
