What is a boot loop?

A boot loop occurs when the device fails to write the software code properly to the system partition when flashing or updating to a newer software version. This happens mostly when the user itself tampers with the device, but may also happen due to sudden shutdowns while updating the phone. When your device goes into a bootloop, you won’t be able to access the UI since your phone will attempt to boot up and will fail every time. The only way out of this is to completely erase the system partition and write the software from scratch. This can be done using a few methods, including the Fastboot transfer method or using the recovery to flash an existing ZIP file.


Attempting to fix your bootloop on your own will void your warranty. The process also will wipe away all of your data, which includes photos, videos, apps and your calls. We, at GetDroidTips are not responsible for any unforeseen bootloops or crashes that may occur on your devices. All of our guides are thoroughly researched and provide only the correct means to follow the procedure. Proceed with caution and follow each step very carefully
