There's a hack that might save your bootlooping Nexus 6P or 5X

The last generation of Nexuses (Nexus? Nexsi?) were unfortunately plagued with hardware problems. The Nexus 6P suffered from early shutdowns due to a faulty battery sensors, and the 5X had the famous bootloop bug (which my own 5X eventually fell victim to). The 6P suffered from bootloops as well, to an extent, but now there's a possible fix for the problem on both phones.

[Update: Contact information to join the lawsuit] One of the LG bootloop lawsuits has been forced into arbitration

Representatives from Girard Gibbs LLP, the firm previously handling one of the LG bootloop lawsuits, contacted us late yesterday with news about the case. On June 29th the court gave an order granting the defendant's motion to compel arbitration, dismissing the lawsuit. That means that right now the suit has been forced into arbitration.

The largest of Google's 2017 devices, codenamed 'Taimen,' may be built by LG

Back in March, we learned that Google may be working on a third device for 2017, called 'Taimen' (Google traditionally names products after fish). This third model would be bigger than the next Pixel and Pixel XL, codenamed 'Walleye' and 'Muskie' respectively. It's not known for sure that Taimen will be a larger Pixel phone, just that it will be larger in size than Walleye and Muskie.

Earlier today, we reported that Muskie has likely been cancelled, leaving Walleye and Taimen the only phones Google will reveal this year. Now it seems that Taimen may be manufactured by LG.

Amended complaint filed in ongoing Nexus 6P early shutdown and bootloop lawsuit

The Nexus 6P lawsuit we previously reported on twice in April has been recently amended, and the venue of the suit seems to have changed to northern California. The latest filings have expanded the total number of actions in the suit from 10 to 23, with claimants hailing from 11 different states. It's still early days, and this more recent filing doesn't mean that the case has advanced, merely that the attorneys involved have decided to expand and tweak things after the initial filing. Those who are participating in the suit have a long way to go.

Google may be sued over Nexus 6P early shutdown and bootloop issues

The Android hardware space is fast beginning to look like a watered down episode of Suits. Following on from news earlier in the week that LG is facing a bootloop lawsuit regarding several of its phones, Huawei's Nexus 6P could be responsible for Google encountering a similar inconvenience. As well as being accused of the same bootloop problem that has blighted LG devices, there are reports from consumers that the Nexus 6P has a premature battery shutdown problem.

[Frozen Assets] LG's G4 and V10 bootloop problems result in a class-action lawsuit

LG's bootloop problems have become the butt of the joke online over the past few months. While Samsung was busy cooling down the fire of its Note7 fiasco, LG was getting heat over its freezing LG G4 and V10, among other devices (like the Nexus 5 and 5X). Many reports were surfacing of these phones getting stuck in a bootloop vicious circle, turning on and off, not properly booting, and leaving the owners without any recourse but to ask for a replacement unit... if they were still under warranty.

Now these owners are seeking their day in court thanks to a new class-action lawsuit filed to the California federal court.

[Attack Of The Killer OTA] Recent Android 5.0.2 Update Bricks Nexus 9 For Some Users

The most recent over-the-air update for the Nexus 9, the one that totally wasn't what you were actually waiting for, has apparently bricked the device for some owners. A couple folks affected by this 5.0.2 issue have taken to Google's product forums to ask what gives.

The person who opened this thread was told to perform a factory reset in recovery mode (as well as the bootloader, which has a separate factory reset option). It didn't fix things. Nor did it work for our very own Cameron Summerson, who went through this headache this morning. He was able to fix his Nexus 9 only after flashing the factory image manually.

Here's An Easy Fix For A OnePlus One Sudden Death Bug That Results In Neverending Boot Loops

The OnePlus One has had its share of bugs, but there has been one issue that effectively breaks the phone without the owner being even accidentally at fault. One minute you're swiping through the app drawer looking at the best way to kill time for a couple of minutes, the next you're hit with a spontaneous reboot and staring at a phone that boot loops indefinitely, leaving you with a bricked device.

The problem is suspected to stem from the "persist" partition getting corrupted during the reboot, even though CyanogenMod doesn't use this particular location. The damaged area doesn't get fixed like other partitions because a filesystem integrity check isn't ran.
