My Google Pixel 4 XL stuck on the boot logo: How to Fix Boot loop Problem

Boot loops are the result of system files not knowing how to function during the initial start-up phase and can be caused by a variety of things, from downloading new apps to accidentally changing system files. Are you too facing boot loop issue with your Pixel 4 XL? then follow the below simple guide to fix the Boot loop Problem on Google Pixel 4 XL.

Usually, the device will boot fine. But sometimes, there will be some sort of error that prevents booting. This is a lot harder to handle than a program crashing when someone is using the device since a boot error affects the whole system—you can’t just force-close the program since the program, in this case, is supposed to run the whole device.

So, instead, you might decide that in this situation the device should reboot: turn itself off and back on, starting the boot process over again. Or maybe the reboot isn’t even your choice and results from some issue with the device’s electronics that automatically triggers a reboot.

So boot loop means when a device isn’t able to boot and instead reboots itself over and over again. The device will keep rebooting, never once reaching a usable state, until either it loses power (is unplugged or uses up its battery) or the error is fixed.
