nexus 6p 5x bootloop fix

Google Nexus 6P and Nexus 5X remain to be among our favorite phones to date. Powered by top-notch hardware specs, great cameras, always up-to-date software and available on the cheap, the Nexus 6P and 5X have since been replaced by the expensive Google Pixels, but this doesn’t mean the phones are still not in use out there.

Despite all their greatness, one thing that has been infuriating Nexus 6P and 5X users for years is the bootlooping issue. For the uninitiated, this is where the phones won’t get past the booting screen, something that has on numerous occasions been associated with the high-performance Cortex A57 cores in both Snapdragon 810 and Snapdragon 808 chipsets used on the two phones, respectively.
