my phone is LG V10 at t bootloop stuck on startup logo

how to fix it ?
Mine did this today after a bad flash. Only way to recovery was to go into recovery mode.
Shut phone off
Power on while holding down the "down" volume button and power button
When lg logo appears, release power button only and press again.
Select recovery option (this will wipe everything so hopefully you made a backup). GL

Had a software update a few days ago, the device got shaky immediately after: constantly losing data, wifi connection, would occasionally freeze. Last night I was doing some reading on wiki, opened a new tab, following by a complete freeze and the device restarting and going into bootloop. Pulled the battery a dozen times to get it to boot, like a G4 would, didn't work. Tried a factory reset a few times: first two times it wouldn't complete and go into bootloop over again, last two times it would just freeze. Have been stuck on this factory reset screen for about 20 min now. Will try sdk when i get home. Seems like the same issue as with G3 and G4. Thoughts?

LG V10 F600S Bootloop

My V10 F600S got bootlooped today, stuck on LG logo. Unfortunately, there is no LG service center in our country. So is there any way to go with my LG v10 or is it a complete toast now?

Happened to me with an LG-V10 H960 (Israeli model, 32GB) - about an hour ago. This is with a plain, non-rooted phone, with stock ROM that only upgraded to Marshmallow a few months ago. Never fiddled with it, nothing at all.

I noticed over the past few months an occasional case when the phone would tell me I need to tap my knock-code and can't use the fingerprint reader, so I started suspecting it may have rebooted spontaneously when I wasn't looking, but I couldn't be sure as it kept saying "after 48 hours of no use - cannot use fingerprints" - it seemed odd, but I didn't read the signs...

About an hour ago, I was holding the phone, and it happened right in front of me. Phone became stuck, unresponsive for a few seconds, then screen blacked-out, and I saw the LG logo, and it was stuck in the bootloop.

I pulled the battery, and replaced it, tried a few times - nothing. Then I pulled the battery again and tried to only charge the phone - it showed me the charging screen, but then rebooted and went back to the bootloop.

I'm on my way to an LG service center, and will update if they tell me anything interesting. In any case I got "lucky" since I ran LG Backup about a month ago, and all of my photos / videos get recorded to the external SD card (which I immediately removed, of course, for safety).

Hello, the statement about official bootloop issue is dated 26.10.2016. Does that mean that if the phones manufacture date(can be checked by IMEI) is later than that, then the phones come with fixed motherboards? Also does this apply to V10?

To freeze or bake??

Has anyone else tried putting their LGv10 in the oven & had positive results? I just need mine to come out of bootloop long enough to backup all my photos & i am terrified that i won't be able to get it to come out of bootloop mode! Most say that heating it up keeps it on longer than freezing but has a bigger chance of permanent damage to the phone. I'm not worried about the longevity of the phone, I only want my 2,500 photos. Please help

What temp? Willing to try. Phone is out of warranty. If I can get it working again, I can swap it. Any idea what caused it for you?
Hey did you ever try this with your v10? i am desperate to get mine to turn on but if i try something that ruins it my soul will die. If this method worked for more than 1 person i may try it. I read that putting a hair dryer to the back of it till it got really warm worked for some people but can possibly have long term damage. i don't care if it damages the phone as long as it stays on long enough to backup my photos.

I think my phone just f-ed itself into a bootloop again. same "headphone jack freeze" as last time. Just under a year ago had to send it to Texas for repairs. they said they had flash memory replaced and that's it. last time i managed to boot after having it in the freezer for 5-10 minutes. unfortunately, I've already wiped it just before that.

I bought a new battery for my phone & i just tried putting it into the freezer inside a ziploc bag without the battery in it for 20 minutes. Took it out, popped battery in, tried to turn it on & it got past the booting screen but did not make it to the main display before going back into bootloop mode.
Put it back in freezer for 15minutes, tried again except with it plugged into computer this time, it showed the battery image on the screen for a moment & then completely turned off. Wouldn't even bootloop so i hope i didn't completely **** it up more

@ goodguys I just wondered if your photos and data was on it after they fixed it.[/QUOTEyou

Hey are you asking me? I am still trying to fix my phone. The freezer didn't work for me so i will be taking it to someone tomorrow to attempt to solder the components back together. Now i'm just hoping the freezer didn't mess it up more than it was.

Where did you get the statement about bootloop issue with that particular date?

I've taken my LG V10 apart and baked the motherboard three times now. Each time it has worked for 4 to 5 hours before bootloop again. Long enough to get files off of it.

I'm typing this on the LG V10 right now. Battery started at 100% and now I'm down to 10%. I'm gonna use my weakest charging adaptor (1 amp) because I have a suspiscion that the heavy duty chargers over 2 Amps might be part of the problem. Purely a hunch. I'll keep you updated.
