Hi.

If you are a Theme enthusiast while testing new themes sometimes end up with a bootloop which happened to me many times
only way out is data wipe which is a worst nightmare for the flasher(without having backup)

here is a solution where data wipe is not involved

Requirements
  • Recovery filemanager like AROMAFileManager/TWRP Recovery (which has inbuilt FileManager)
  • incase if you are using AromaFM you shold know how to use it in recoverry
  • Patience

Steps
  1. Boot into recovery
  2. Open Recovery File manager
  3. goto Data/system/
  4. Delete theme folder
  5. Done
  6. Reboot

No Boot loops. Change the theme once you boot
Hope this saves many hours for users like me who struggle to recover the data.

I have a tiny question. If I'm using TWRP, can I flash a ROM from an external device? (Attaching a pendrive inside TWRP)
