  • Nexus 6P Bootloop Fix Found

A year ago we heard reports that some Nexus 6P owners were reporting that their phones were stuck in a bootloop, which effectively rendered them useless. If you have a Nexus 6P dead in the water, a little know-how might just be able to revive it. This was different, and while reduced battery life is certainly bad, the bootloops essentially turned the smartphone into paperweight. Unfortunately, Google and Huawei were not listening to these complaints aside from replacing units under warranty.

A few industrious minds at XDA-Developers do have an idea, though, and have figured out a fix to the situation: by deactivating the BIG cores on the chipset.

Heinz in trouble over misleading labeling on toddler snack
Since the allegation was put forth, the food giant company has withdrawn the product from the market. In a statement, Heinz rejected the ACCC's claims about the bars' packaging.


An XDA member who goes bythe handle "XCnathan32" has discovered that the problem was indeed in the octa-core Snapdragon 810 processor. As it is, the high-performance A57 cores are the ones responsible for the bootloop issue on both phones and once they are disabled, the phone works perfectly. For some reason (which is still unknown), the larger CPU cluster isnt let the phone function properly, so the modified boot.img file only lets the phone use four of its eight CPU cores, which means youll notice much lower performance.

So far based on the feedback given for the fix, many users are reporting that it is successful and that previously bricked Nexus 6P devices are now back up and running. If you want to at least get your Nexus 6P working, check out the source link below for the very detailed instructions.
