I thought would do a factory reset on my LG G4 and now its stuck on boot screen, damn not very good for 3 year old phone or is it normal, as I expect I will have an expensive repair bill.


Seriously of thinking of getting an iphone next time!

Bootloop. Google it. Start researching your next phone, because you're upgrading.

Yep bought a G4 off trade me and it bootlooped and after extensive research there is a very short term fix which involves taking phone apart and using a hair dryer to heat the SoC to try get the solder to adhere again. Unfortunately it's a waste of time. My advice is ditch it and get a new phone.

LG has had a class action lawsuit brought against them for this reason and funnily enough it effects a lot of different LG phones including the G5 and Nexus 5X

Yay got my phone back yesterday LG paid for a new mainboard even though it was out of warranty, so should be like a new phone.
