[GUIDE] Basic Tips to avoid Bricking your phone
Hey guys, if you've read around this forum, you must be familiar with the infamous bricked eMMC problems. This, sadly, is a hardware issue, and once it's bricked, you have no choice but to get the eMMC replaced by a professional. Following the popular saying, "Prevention is Better Than Cure", here are a few tips to prevent the eMMC chips from burning
=> Do not download multiple apps at once from the market.
Even two simultaneous apps can screw your phone up.
=> Never Use the "UPDATE ALL" feature from the market.
Update each app separately.
=> When you flash a new ROM, restore your apps using titanium backup before adding a Google Account.
This will prevent the market from restoring all your apps at once.
=> NEVER EVER PULL THE BATTERY
This is very important. Pulling your battery out is the most prominent cause of eMMC bricks. Use alternatives like -
=> Use ADB Commands to reboot into recovery
=> Press the Volume up, Volume Down and Power buttons together to reeboot the phone.
In a bootloop, take off the battery cover (without pulling the battery) and press the buttons. The phone will turn off for 2-3 seconds before it turns back on. That's your window. Pull the battery in this time.
=> If you absolutely have to pull the battery, re-insert it at least 30 seconds later.
