Nexus 6P bootlooping issue now has an unofficial fix

24 July 2017 3

The Nexus 6P was one of the best Nexus offerings from Google but like every other smartphone, it has some issues which proved to be an obstacle in the user experience. And one such huge problem with the Nexus 6P was the bootlooping issue which caused many devices to turn into a brick. But if you still happen to have that bricked Nexus flagship with you, there is now an unofficial way through which you can try to resurrect it.

Thanks to a few XDA developers, they have figured out a way to make those bricked Nexus 6Ps work again. These devs discovered that the actual root of the bootlooping issue is related with Qualcomm Snapdragon 810's Cortex-A57 performance cores. So they went ahead and disabled those cores which resulted in the Nexus 6P working.

It should be noted that this fix means that your Nexus 6P will be relying only on Cortex-A53 efficiency cores which mean you will see some significant drop in the overall performance. But as it still better than having a bricked Nexus 6P, you can surely give this fix a try. It comprises of installing a bunch of modified files which means you will need an unlocked bootloader. If you want to go for it, click the source link below to get all the details and required files.
