Smartphone Bootloop Problem and its solutions
Hello Guys, here we are going to enlighten one of the most important parts of smartphone i.e. booting. Booting is the process of loading OS(Android ROM) so that all features can work. And Bootloop is one the biggest problem which stops your phone from loading the OS normally.Smartphone Bricked is another name to boot problem which occurs when bootloader does not work. Most of the time people use the term “bricked” logically in wrong way. A bricked smartphone means that the smartphone can not be turned on at any cost, shape or form.Meaning that as a smartphone user and there’s Probably nothing you can do to fix it.
So we can say that if a smartphone is stucked into the bootloop that doesn’t means your phone is bricked. And if a phone that boots straight into recovery mode is also in a different scenario than that of the bricked status. These are not basic problems but if you know basic use of Android and love your Smartphone then probably you can fix it. It is very rare that a smartphone is hard bricked. If your phone is actually bricked, you won’t be able to fix it yourself, to fix it you need to contact to service centers of the precise company.
To Smartphone Bootloop Problem we have several solutions, As per the situation:
Step-1: We can Start the process by removing the battery of the device, and then wait for a while before inserting it back into your smartphone.If your phone has a non-removable battery you need to turn off your phone for fifteen minutes. So that it can remove all the power, which is left in the battery leading to complete a power-cycle once you insert the battery in your smartphone.
Once you waited for 15 minutes it is the right time to boot your device into Recovery Mode by pressing power key and volume(either + or -) to get into Recovery mode. For example, All Samsung devices boots into Recovery Mode by pressing the power key and Volume Up button simultaneously, Home + Power (for tablets it is Volume Up and Power). If using a Motorola smartphones, you can boot into recovery mode by pressing power + Volume Down together. You can access entire recovery mode by volume Down button and select any option you need to use Volume Up. If you can’t boot in Recovery mode it is the best way to use ADB flash tool on your pc.
Connect your phone to pc open ADB window and type in the following command > “ADB reboot recovery” and then hit enter. You will see that your device will reboot into recovery mode. If you are not aware of ADB flash tool you can check this at XDA.
We hope you have completed the first step, which means you are in Recovery mode. This is the time to browse the recovery and selects the option Wipe Data/Factory Reset in Recovery Mode.Check if your device can now boot into the system or not. If not, then you need to perform Wipe Cache Partition once again And then Return to the main Recovery menu and reboot the device by going in Reboot>Reboot to recovery option.Once your smartphone is booted flash or Installing a New Stock ROM. If the device is already rooted and have TWRP or CWM recovery installed. Then look for the next method.
If the device is already rooted with TWRP or CWM installed, then do follow the following steps
(Please follow this step only if your Device is rooted and have a custom recovery installed, As your stock recovery will not support A Custom ROM. So be careful)
Step:1- Remove your battery.
Step:1- Insert battery after 2 mins.
Step:3- Boot the device into Custom Recovery by pressing the power button and Vol(+ and -) button simultaneously. Best way to know your recovery mode button combination is to google it.
Step:4- Tap on Wipe option(in TWRP) if you are using CWM you have to go manually by vol down button and then >Advanced wipe > Choose Dalvik Cache, cache. Now swipe to Wipe/cache. I have you have done above procedure now reboot the device and check if the boot loop issue is resolved. If not repeat the above three steps, but perform both Wipe/data and Wipe/cache.If still, it doesn’t solve your problem you need to flash a new custom ROM which might solve your problem.
Reason 2 for Smartphone bootloop Issue:-
It might happen due to an Incorrect File Permission.The Android operating system (OS)is based on Linux kernel and works on file permissions. Which means incorrectly file permissions will permanently damage or may cause soft brick of your smartphone which is indirectly stucking into bootloop. Basically Android uses 644 (RW-R-R) file permissions(Mostly used while we not aware of Android Oreo and it exists in /system/app, /system/framework, /system/etc, /system/lib and allot of separate files) – 755 (RWX-RX-RX) – (mainly used for /system/bin) – 777 (RWX-RWX-RWX) – (used for scripts inside /system/etc/init.d and busy box files)
And if you think this is the problem which is causing a bootloop issue then Boot the device into CWM or TWRP recovery Go to Advanced option.In TWRP swipe to Fix Permission and confirm the action. Boot you phone to system check if your phone starts or not.
If the bootloop error still occurs, you need to install your stock ROM back to your Android Smartphone to solve Bootloop Issue.
Stock ROM flashing can be done through many different ways.
- Using ADB flash Tool
ADB is one of the simplest and easiest tools to Access your Android while it is at boot. It is the very rare case that ADB fails to get entry into the system, but sometimes it happens to Android. As is some cases bootloops make it impossible for ADB as they do not go further than the first boot picture. (This problem is solved by CWM in their latest version of recovery.)
A logical part of using ADB with bootloops is that you have to do it at the right time, this is different from every device, but normally it’s after the manufacturer logo that the partitions get mounted. The easiest way to enter your phone in this part is using a batch script that monitors the state of your device and connects directly when possible.
- HTC users can flash stock ROMs directly from the bootloader. You just need to Google it for your device’s specific stock ROM (RUU file). Once you found the specific file download it, move the following ZIP file to your SD card, and rename it accordingly as it is specified on the website. booting up your phone should automatically flash the stock ROM from HBOOT, HTC’s bootloader.
- The third is the easiest option and is for those who have a custom recovery installed they can directly flash Stock ROM.zip from the recovery. You just need to download the Stock ROM for your phone and save it in the memory card.
Batch File Method To Solve Smartphone Bootloop Issue:
- We can also use some precise batch files to do so.These scripts will wait for your device to get ready once they are ready it freeze the device at that instant, which allows the script to have more time to push the file (instead of keep rebooting). Once it starts the process it reinstalls the certain apps and it changes the permissions of the files to RW-R-R (644) and then it will reboot. To do this process you need to find the .batch file for your Device.So be careful.
We hope you Smartphone Bootloop Issue is fixed by above method, If so do comment and if you have any other method to recover, that please let us and our readers know about that process by commenting it in the comment box.
