    Hello guys
    I have a problem with my galaxy note 9 after trying to unroot the device is stuck on a quick booting loop so I can’t even reach the reach recovery mode I tried all the methods to go to the recovery mode but I couldn’t and it stays doesn’t connect to the computer because the device is turning off before booting. sorry for the long explanation and thanks for the help.

  2. I faced Boot Loop problem thrice this year till Aug’22.

    1. Redmi Note 6 Pro: Boot loop problem occurred in Dec’21. Took the phone to MI service centre. After checking they said that the motherboard and the battery of the phone to be replaced costing a hefty amount (12,000/- INR). They returned me a dead phone. It was not in the boot-loop anymore and it doesn’t start also. Took it to a local Mobile repair shop. they checked and said that a chip needs to be replaced costing 3,500/- INR. They repaired my phone and it was working ok until today 20th Aug’22.

    2. Samsung Galaxy M42 5G. Bought phone in July’21. just after the warranty period of one year was over, I faced Boot Loop Problem in Aug’22. At times the phone was able to boot (very rarely, possibly after 100 cycles of Boot Loop). Took phone to the Samsung service centre. They asked to deposit the phone, and declared that all the data will be wiped off during testing. Had second thought. Meanwhile once the phone booted and I did a factory reset after backing up the settings etc. Even after the factory reset, the problem persisted. Went to the local Mobile repair shop. This time the technician said that the main chip needs to be replaced and the cost will be 5,500/- INR. He repaired the phone and the phone is still working. he also said that the data wouldn’t have wiped off during this repair.

    3. Redmi Note 6 Pro: today my Redmi phone again went to the Boot Loop mode. I tried to fiddle with the switched and nothing happened. Once I pressed the Power and Vol low button without releasing, and suddenly the Fast boot Screen appeared. I had no idea what to do in fast boot mode and even tried to reboot by pressing the power button, but nothing happened. I left the phone in the fast boot mode (?) and after sometime the phone went to power off mode. I tried to power on it by pressing the power button, and it powered on and did a clean boot. Now it is working. No idea what comes next.

  3. My old phone has reboot loop several times, that I’m getting used to the first method. Now this is the fourth time and I try to use the second method AND IT’S ALSO WORKING!!! OMG I NEVER THOUGHT THAT CAN WORK ON A PHONE WHERE THE POWER BUTTON IS ON THE TOP AND THE VOLUME BUTTON IS ON THE BACK OF THE PHONE!!! Now I’m going to do the second method again when the 5th bootloop of my Asus ZenFone Go.

    none of these work if your phone keeps rebooting by itself lmao I’m failing to find a method that works on a phone that doesn’t turn on or off and is just stuck rebooting when the second logo shows up. like ACTUALLY stuck.

  5. i m having same issue in redmi note 9S… i flashed stock rom and the problem remains…. then i find the solution that it is the battery circuit… because when i plugged in then device working fine and when i remove charger phone reboots within few seconds causing bootloop… then i went to mobile repair shop and told them the problem they can fix it… it is due to battery or battery circuit… in few hours i will get my phone from mobile repair shop so lets hope mobile will be fixed soon…
