    Unfixable bootloop? Please help!

    I have a roughly 3 month old Nexus. Today, out of nowhere the phone started bootlooping. It will come to the lock screen for about ten seconds and then freeze, an audible pop is heard and then the phone resets to the Google logo. When I try to put it in recovery mode a red triangle appears above the recovery mode logo. The phone is not, and has never been rooted. I have Light Flow installed (I've heard that might affect it) but I cannot get it uninstalled. Can I fix this myself or should I just take it back to my phone provider?

    When you see the red triangle press power then volume up to enter the menu. See if it works. If yes, clear cache first in that menu

    Press volume up+power at that screen with the red triangle, use the volume rocker to select factory reset, power button to select.
    Err.. do what thephantom said clear cache first you never know.

    Hi badbadbadry, I am also facing same problem. I have android 4.1.2 and it started rebooting suddenly with exact same symptoms you faced with your phone. Have you got a solution to this issue?

    HRP, the first thing to do is to go into recovery following the instructions above and clear cache. This has been known to solve some bootloops. If it doesn't, then you will have to do a factory data reset. You will lose all your personal data on the sd when you do this reset. So when you are attempting to get into recovery, connect your phone to the computer and see if it recognized. You may be able to save/backup your sdcard data.

    Good luck.
