Greetings friends! Smartphones are like small computers that work with their operating system. Just like computers, they can fail or even stop working. This is not very common but it can happen. The reasons why this happens can be varied. One of these failures can be the Boot Loop, causing your phone to constantly reboot only showing you the device logo. This error can become very annoying and prevent you from using your phone. If this happens to your phone, chances are that something is not working as it should. So in this post, we will show you how to fix the Boot Loop on any Android.
Reasons that cause a Boot Loop
The main reason may be due to the modification of files on the system, it is managed by an operating system, it is normal that Google is responsible for introducing tools to prevent users from modifying the system. But it is still possible, for example, activating the developer options, will allow you to modify many sensitive aspects. If we go further and if you unlock the bootloader and get root access you can even change the ROM of your device. This is valid as long as you have full knowledge of each of these concepts and the risks involved. If you modify any section that is necessary for the proper functioning of the system your phone could get stuck in the Boot Loop.
Your phone can get stuck in a Boot Loop after a software update. It is usually an error that hopefully can be solved by leaving the power button pressed for a few seconds until your phone turns on normally. Another reason is that you have tried to install an OTA Update manually that does not correspond to your device or a Beta version that may contain bugs.
Your phone has been infected
This is a reason you should also consider. If you download apps from Google Play it is unlikely that your device will be infected with a virus that may prevent the system from working properly. Because Google Play has filters that take care of keeping malicious apps out of its app store. But if you are a user who installs apps from unknown sources. There is a possibility that your device has been infected with a virus.
How to Factory Reset your phone
Before you start you must take into account that this process will delete all the data you have stored in the internal memory of your device. So if you had backups of your data in the cloud, it will not be a problem. Otherwise, I recommend that before starting this process, connect your phone to a PC and try to access the internal storage, and make a backup of all your data if possible.
This process is very similar on all Android devices, although some may vary.
- First, turn off the device. To turn it off, you must press and hold the power button until the screen turns off. If you have a Samsung phone, connect it to a PC using a USB cable.
- Next, press and hold the power button and the volume up button until the terminal vibrates. If it does not work with the volume up button, try the same operation with the volume down button.
- At that point, release the power button and wait for a menu to be displayed on the screen.
- Then, you must navigate with the volume up and down keys and the power button. Finally select through the menus until you find the Factory Reset option. Wipe Data or Hard reset (in each device may have a different name).
If you have performed the factory reset successfully, congratulations you managed to fix the Boot Loop, most likely your device will start normally and you will be able to use it. Thank you for reading us. Bye!
