What is a Bootloop?
When a phone will turn on and flash the logo at you, but then gets stuck and won’t load anything further, it is stuck in a bootloop. When this happens, the phone appears frozen at the startup screen or logo. There is something wrong with the device that is preventing it from completing the normal boot cycle, instead trapping it between the boot logo and the screen where you can unlock it. Sometimes it will only light up, perhaps it will show the logo and then just freeze, or sometimes it will get alarmingly hot to the touch and then shut down suddenly.
The problem is usually system files in the phone are interfering with one another, which makes the whole system unstable and result in a crash. Some of the most common reasons for a bootloop problem include incompatible games or apps, faulty updates to apps or files, and installing custom modifications or themes to a phone. Sometimes the cause isn’t always clear. One day the phone seems normal, and the next it suddenly shuts down and when it is turned back on it is trapped in the boot loop.
Whatever the cause of the problem, the end result is the same: you can’t get into your phone. A phone that won’t work is frustrating enough because it puts you out of contact with work, friends, and family, but when you add the fact that all of your data is trapped in a broken phone it’s easy to panic. What is going to happen to all of your personal photos, work documents, contacts, music, etc.? Don’t worry, we are here to help.
You Can Save your Data from a Bootloop Issue
Many times phone owners who get in touch with their service provider or the phone manufacturer are given the disheartening advice to do a factory reset on their phones in order to restore function. Sure, this will probably solve the boot loop problem and restore your ability to make calls and be connected, but what about your data? A factory reset will wipe the device clean, and that’s probably not the solution you had in mind.
You may be wondering if it’s possible to fix an Android phone stuck in a bootloop without losing data or without doing a factory reset. The good news is that your boot looping phone is probably not a permanent prison for your data. Bootloops are a common issue plaguing smartphone owners today.
The LG G4 mobile phones account for more than 70% of the bootloop issues seen in the FlashFixers data recovery lab, but they also commonly occur in the Samsung Galaxy S5, S4, S3, Note 4, Note 3, and Note 2.
