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 bootloop issue with your OnePlus 8 Pro? then follow the below simple guide to fix the Boot loop Problem on OnePlus 8 Pro.
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.

Fix OnePlus 8 Pro Bootloop Problem
Well, I think you already know how to restart your phone. So just restart the device and see whether it solves the issue or not. Restarting a device is always an ultimate solution for any issue.
Well if you still need to know how to restart then, here is it: Press your phone’s power button. On the screen, tap Restart.
The other way of the reboot is as follows:
- Press and hold down the Power and Volume down buttons at the same time.
- Hold the Power button down for 10-15 seconds, or until the phone vibrates and restarts.
- If the phone turns off let go then press power again for 1-2 seconds to restart the phone.
Wait for Battery to Die and then Charge it
The next thing that you want to do is to allow the battery to drain. Depending on how much is the remaining power, you may be looking at a few hours to days.
There’s no way to hasten the phone’s battery drain rate so all you have to do is wait. Turning off the device is a requirement to perform the rest of the suggestions below. After turning off the phone don’t attempt to power it back on for a minute.
Then now charge it. If charging the device is successful and your OnePlus 8 Pro restarts normally, make sure to recalibrate the OS and battery. Here’s how to do it:
- Drain the battery completely. This means using your device until it powers down on its own and the battery level reads 0%.
- Charge the phone until it reaches 100%. Be sure to use original charging equipment for your device and let it charge up completely. Do not unplug your device for at least two more hours and also don’t use it while charging.
- After the elapsed time, unplug your device.
- Restart the device.
- Use your phone until it completely runs out of power again.
- Repeat the above steps.
Troubleshoot apps in Safe Mode
In case you don’t know what is safe mode, in safe mode, the system temporarily disable all third-party applications you installed on your device. By doing this we can figure out which app is occurring the problem. Follow the below step to turn Safe Mode on:
- Turn OFF the OnePlus device.
- Press and hold the Power button.
- On the screen, press and hold Power off.
- Tap Ok to reboot into Safe mode.
Safe Mode may be a useful trick in checking for a problem but it won’t pinpoint the exact app. In order to identify which of your apps may be behind the problem, you’ll have to do a process of elimination. Here’s what you need to do exactly:
- Boot to safe mode.
- Check for the problem.
- If the issue returns or once you’ve confirmed that a third-party app is to blame, you can start uninstalling apps one by one. You’ll need to do spend some time doing this if you have plenty of apps installed. We suggest that you begin with the most recent ones you added.
- It’s important that you only uninstall a single app at a time. After removing an app, restart the phone to normal mode and check for the problem again.
Keep in mind that there’s no shortcut to knowing which app is bad or buggy. Just be patient and keep repeating the cycle above if the problem returns after removing one app.
Try to Boot into Recovery
In case you don’t know what is recovery, the first thing the bootloader rings up is the recovery. Recovery Mode refers to a special bootable partition, which contains a recovery application installed in it. And you can fix some problems with your phone. Follow the steps to boot into recovery mode:
- Switch off your OnePlus device.
- Now press and hold the Power and Volume Down buttons simultaneously until you see the recovery mode options on your device.
- Once you see the recovery options, you can let go of the two buttons.
- The Recovery screen menu will now appear.
If your phone boots to Recovery Mode successfully, make sure to try wipe cache partition first. If that won’t work, then you can factory reset the phone by selecting Wipe data/factory reset.
Wipe Cache Partition
- The Recovery screen menu will now appear
- Use the Volume button to go to Wipe Cache Partition then press the Power button to confirm the selection.
- Wait until your device wipes out all cache or temporary data from the system partition.
- Press the Power button again to reboot the device.
Wipe data/factory reset
- The Recovery screen menu will now appear
- Use the Volume Down button until you are highlighting ‘Wipe data/factory reset.’
- Press the Power button to select ‘Wipe data/factory reset.’
- Use Volume Down to highlight Yes.
- Press the Power button to confirm the action to clear your phone data.
