If you are experiencing the Redmi Note 10 Pro stuck on the boot screen, this is not a common occurrence yet not so rare. A wide variety of factors can cause this including a new app or upgrading to a higher OS or even an incremental Android OS can trigger it. What this issue does is essentially restrict the boot screen so you won’t be able to go past the OEM’s logo.
For some of the devices, they might end up with a somewhat different bug. They’ll enter a constant boot loop and their phones will constantly reboot itself. So in that case, what should you do? Here are a few pointers that you can do.
1: Perform a Forced Reboot
If your Redmi Note 10 Pro has stuck on the boot screen or entered a boot loop, force rebooting can clear the problem. It is essentially rebooting the device, however, it uses hardware keys and brute force to do it. Before attempting this, find the combination of keys that matches your model. What you have to do is, Press Power + Volume Down button Or Power + Volume UP button to force a reboot.
When you get the correct combination for your Redmi Note 10 Pro, press and hold both the buttons for 30-odd seconds until the phone dies out and turn off. Use the power button to restart the phone after a few seconds. Usually this should work, but if fails, here’s a list of fixes to try next.
2: Boot into the Safe Mode
A Safe Mode on your Redmi Note 10 Pro is basically a bootable safe place where all third-party apps and processes are stopped. As the phone is almost in its original settings, you can diagnose whether a third-party app caused the device to be stuck in the boot loop. You can use the instructions below to try and fix the issue.
- First, press the power button once to reveal the Power off the menu and hold the “Power Off” button for a few seconds. This is when you will get a prompt to enter “Safe Mode” so tap on “Yes” or “OK” to confirm.
- Uninstall recently-downloaded apps and games to see if that resolves the issue.
- You can exit Safe Mode simply by pressing the Power button.
In safe mode, if your Poco X3 Pro is behaving normally then there’s probably an issue with third-party apps. But, if everything is fine in this mode, there’s definitely something else that you should be looking for. Follow the next troubleshooting methods mentioned here to try and fix the issue.
3: Upgrade/Downgrade Software
Considering that you tried to upgrade to a newer Android firmware (could be beta, incremental, or major upgrade) or rather considered downgrading, you need to apply countermeasures to fix your Redmi Note 10 Pro stuck on the boot screen.
If you are attempting to upgrade your current firmware, you need to download the existing firmware from your OEM’s website or other sources. If you’re trying to downgrade, however, you’ll need to upgrade to the currently available version to fix the issue.
In case you want to update your phone from the SD Card, you can use Recovery Mode. You can use ADB tools installed on your PC and connect the phone to it to use the “Apply Update from ADB”. If you can switch on the phone somehow, you can use the Software Updates section via Settings >> About Phone to load new firmware and install it. Note that this may wipe all user data so be careful before doing it.
4: Wipe Cache Partition
Sometimes, when you’re looking to take a major step and hard reset your phone (see next method), wiping the cache partition is a good option to consider. Here’s how to do it.
- Enter the Recovery Mode on your Redmi Note 10 Pro by switching off the phone. Use Power + Volume Down or Power + Volume Up and hold it for a straight 30 seconds.
- Once you see an Android logo, you can release the keys and boot into recovery mode.
- Here, you need to select “Wipe Cache Partition” from the options available. Use the power button to select an option and volume up/down for navigation, as there’s no touchscreen here.
- Finally, select the option “Reboot system now” and verify if wiping cache partition made a difference or not.
5: Pull off a Hard Reset
There are some things you need to know about a hard reset. First and foremost, it will delete and eliminate all the stuff stored on your Redmi Note 10 Pro and unless you use a data recovery program, you won’t be able to retrieve the deleted data. Second, it is often considered as one of the powerful methods to fix any and every issue related to the software part, you will need a technician to tackle any hardware-borne issue. Here’s how to perform a hard reset:
- Power off your Redmi Note 10 Pro.
- Now, you should either press Power + Volume Up Or Power + Volume Down buttons together and hold it for 30 seconds.
- Release both the buttons once the phone boots into recovery mode.
- You need to select “Wipe data/factory reset”. Here, you need to use volume up/down and power buttons to navigate and select since you cannot use a touchscreen.
- Next up, select “Yes — delete all user data” and the process will begin.
- Finally, choose the “Reboot system now” option and that should resolve the stuck at boot screen problem for you.
