Samsung Galaxy Note 2 Stuck in Boot Loop

If you find yourself experiencing the problem wherein your Samsung Galaxy Note 2 is stuck in a boot loop or your phone stops responding when its logo shows up, there might be a problem with your system files. According to XDA Developers, the usual factor triggering the issue is system files interfering with each other.

Here are the quick solutions that you can apply to solve the Galaxy Note 2 Stuck in Boot Loop problem:

  1. Hi Team,

    I tried the instructions of “For Galaxy Note 2 Running on Stock ROM” but step 2 doesn’t take me to recovery mode rather it says Downloading OS please wait.
    Please help.

    Kind Regards

  2. How are you? Sorry for bothering for with this but, I have a Samsung note 2 and it is stuck in a bootloop, I have wiped the data/factory reset, wiped the cache partition and rebooted the phone it does not work .. I suspect that it could be the battery because it’s a bit fat now…. but i don’t want to make any assumptions and buy anything unnecessarily. Can you please help

  3. Your suggestion worked for me .. BUT you must edit your ‘instructions’ to state that it’s the UPvolume+home+power key combo that gets to ‘Recovery’ (in my case, TWRP !!Your error can cause much confusion and frustration!!! I see that long ago this issue was raised, but NO mod of your article appeared!!!
    We trust those who deserve it…
