Steps to fix boot loop issues on stock Android

Here are the step-by-step instructions to fix any Android device stuck on the boot loop screen. I have written a general and detailed guide that applies to all Android phones including Samsung Galaxy (S7, S6 Edge, S5, Note 5, Note 4, Note 3) LG (G5, G4, G3, LG V20) Google Pixel and Nexus and all HTC phones.

Step 1: First of all, remove the battery from your phone or tablet and wait for almost 2 to 3 minutes. What if your device does not have a removable battery? Well, then you can power off it for almost 4 to 5 minutes.

Step 2: Now you need to boot into Stock Recovery Mode by pressing and holding the Volume Up+Home+Power buttons at the same time for a few seconds until you see the Android Recovery menu on your screen.

Step 3: You’ll be using the Volume Up/Down to switch between different options and Power button to select your desired option.

Step 4: Now select the Wipe data/Factory Reset option and confirm it.

Step 5: Additionally, also take the following actions:

– Wipe cache partition
– Go to Advance and Wipe Dalvik cache

6. Now Go back to the main Recovery menu and Select the option Reboot System Now to Reboot your phone.

Hopefully, once your phone reboots, you should have successfully got recovered from Bootloop. If you have got Root Access and Installed Custom Recovery (ClockworkMod or TWRP), then follow the below instructions.

If your phone is already rooted, you can try out the the instructions below to get rid of boot loop.

  12. Well, I have a rooted LG Optimus G pro that is stuck in bootloop. I rooted it 2 months ago an totally customized the phone down to the boot animation. Recently approx 2 days ago, I downloaded an app for some extra fonts. This app requires you to reboot when you make a font change. When I rebooted the phone for the new font to take effect, It never came back. Boot Loop! I remember getting into recovery mode when I rooted the phone, but now I cant seem to get there. I tried a Hard reset Volume down and power button, but after the reset the result was the same….boot loop. Why do I not have a recovery mode now? Is my phone gone for good? I do not have ClockworkWork Mod or TWRP. I have Stock LG Rom. So, now what do I do?

    Firstly, I kept my two most important files : Carbon nightly, and GAPPS.

    Thirdly, I went to ‘Mounts and Strorage’, from there I selected ‘format/data’ and ‘format/cache’ options.
    ^This wipes your whole phone including personal data, making it appear like new. (internally).
    Next, I re-installed my carbon ROM and my GAPPS.
    After it was completed for me, I wasn’t stuck on bootloop any more 😀

  27. I had the bootloop error when my phone heats up(for reason I dont know)…then I after removing battery and getting into the phone finally..I did a backup and reset. After that I still encounter the error one more time. but this time after getting into the phone, finally it just work for 2 days staright. I dont know how to trigger this bootloop again. I am stuck because I have only days before warranty expires and I am afraid this might happen again. Should I just return this phone now or take a chance?

    • Like he said, leave it off from a while. I turned mine off for a few days. Make sure that if the up volume button doesn’t work, try the power+down volume key, too.

  28. Thanks. I didn’t know the key combo to get into the Recovery menu. My phone does not have a physical Home key, but pressing the other two (Vol + and Power) worked. I had to reset to factory default, but with a lot of apps on an internal SD card, I didn’t have much work to do to get back to my old state.

  29. Hi, I’ve got a motorola moto e, I think. I tried your directions and it didn’t work. Scrolling through comments, someone mentioned that you should also try the down volume key. I did this and it worked, but I had no idea what to do after that. I clicked the power button again after scrolling to the recovery mode thing. Apparently this was wrong because it started looping again AND it won’t let me pull up the menu again. HELP?!

  30. Not sure if you’re still answering questions, or even if my issue is what you’re talking about, but I have a stock HTC phone that was updated a couple weeks ago that has started powering off randomly. It did it today, and got stuck in a loop:Power screen, then “loading android apps” screen, then back to power screen, etc. for nearly 2 hours until the battery died. It doesn’t have a removable battery, and pressing/holding the power button did nothing to interrupt the process. It powered up while on charge, but what can I do if it does it again?

  31. lgms323… boot loop . if i hold volume down + power it brings me to a factory reset screen. then i can get it to boot following the menus. but if my phone restarts for any reason it goes back to boot loop
