How to fix the bootloop issue

Before you take a look at this solution, you should know that it might be quite complicated to use it, so if you are not really sure that you can do it, perhaps it is better to try something else. If done wrong, certain damages might incur to your device.

1.      Make sure that the phone is OEM unlocked

If the phone is OEM locked you will have to try to unlock it, which means that you have to try to boot your phone. Some users say that you can do that by heating the backside of the phone, or by letting the battery go down to 10-15%.

Then go to settings, go to developer options, tap “OEM unlocking” and accept the prompt. Reboot your phone to the bootloader, connect it to your computer and type “fastboot flashing unlock”

2.      Solve the problem

Now that the phone is OEM unlocked, you have to boot it again into bootloader and connect it to the computer. Go to the modified files folder, hold shift and right click and select “open command prompt here”.

There, type “fastboot flash boot [name of the file here]”. You have to replace “boot” with recovery if you flash TWRP. Boot your phone again and you should be done.
