Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P – How to Repair Bootloop Mode
We have some great news for Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P owners who were forced to sideline their smartphone because of the dreaded bootloop mode. Fortunately, a XDA Forum member managed to find a quick and easy solution that allows malfunctioning smartphones to completely boot thus stopping the continuous reboots. Things get even better because this unofficial method of getting rid of the bootloop mode doesn’t require any sophisticated skills and it can be performed by anyone.
The bootloop mode is a major issue which causes affected smartphones to basically become paper weights. However, the worst thing about it is that it’s caused by a hardware malfunction which means that Google isn’t able to fix it through a simple OTA (over the air) fix. The situation gets even grimmer for Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P owners since neither LG nor Huawei are offering to repair them.
The way in which this method works is basically by disabling the “big” cores from the affected device’s processor. The side effect of doing this is that the smartphone will run a bit slower and it might lag sometimes but it’s certainly a whole lot better than a completely useless smartphone. Furthermore, this method has been tested on Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P, and it worked wonders.
As previously mentioned, this unofficial method of fixing malfunctioning Nexus 5X or Nexus 6P devices is not very difficult. However, interested readers are advised to access the XDA Forum because that’s where they will find a step by step guide.
Nonetheless, this fix is great for Nexus 5X or Nexus 6P owners who just want to copy their storage space on another smartphone or PC. Many people like to take pictures or record videos with their phones and not being able to access them is quite annoying. However using this unofficial fix, Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P will finally be able to get their files back.
