Vivo S1 Pro Stuck on Boot Screen? Try this

If you are experiencing an issue where your Vivo S1 Pro is stuck on the boot screen, it turns out this is not common yet not so rare. This issue can be caused by various things, such as installing a new app, upgrading to a higher operating system, or even updating the Android operating system. What this issue does is essentially restrict the boot screen so you won’t be able to go past the OEM’s logo.

Some of the devices might end up in a slightly different issue, their phones will enter a constant boot loop which means the phone will constantly reboot itself. So in that case, what should you do? Here are a few steps that you can try.

1: Perform a Forced Reboot [ Vivo S1 Pro Stuck on Boot Screen ]

To fix a stuck boot screen or boot loop on your Vivo S1 Pro, you can try a force reboot. This is a method of restarting the device using hardware keys and brute force. To perform a force reboot, you will need to find the correct combination of keys for your specific make and model. What you have to do is, Press Power + Volume Down button Or Power + Volume UP button to force a reboot.

Once you get the correct combination for your Vivo S1 Pro, press and hold both the buttons for 30-odd seconds until the phone dies out and shuts down. Use the power button to restart the phone after a few seconds and this should work. If this does not work, there are other troubleshooting methods listed here that you can try.

2: Boot into the Safe Mode

A Safe Mode on your Vivo S1 Pro is basically a bootable safe place where all third-party apps and processes are disabled. Since the phone is almost in its original settings, you can verify whether a third-party app caused the device to be stuck in the boot loop. Follow the instructions below to enter Safe Mode and attempt to 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. A prompt will appear asking if you want to enter Safe Mode. Tap “Yes” or “OK” to confirm.
  • Try uninstalling some recently downloaded apps and games from the system hoping that it will fix the issue.
  • To exit Safe Mode, simply press the Power button.

If your Vivo S1 Pro functions normally while in Safe Mode, it is likely that there is an issue with third-party apps. On the other hand, if the device continues to experience issues in Safe Mode, it is possible that there is a different issue at hand. To troubleshoot and fix the problem, you can follow the steps outlined below.

3: Upgrade/Downgrade Software [ Vivo S1 Pro Stuck on Boot Screen ]

Assuming that you attempted to upgrade to a newer Android firmware (could be beta, incremental, or major upgrade) or rather considered downgrading, you need to take countermeasures to fix your Vivo S1 Pro stuck on the boot screen.

To upgrade to a newer firmware, you must first download the existing firmware from your OEM’s website or other sources. On the other hand, if you are attempting to downgrade, you must first upgrade to the currently available version in order to resolve the issue.

You can use the Recovery Mode to apply updates from the SD Card. Alternatively, you can connect your phone to a PC with ADB tools installed and use the “Apply Update from ADB” option. If you can turn on the phone somehow, you can use the Software Updates section via Settings >> About Phone to load new firmware and install it. However, be aware that this process may delete all user data on your phone.

4: Wipe Cache Partition

Before attempting a major step such as hard resetting the phone (see next method), try wiping the cache partition as a less invasive option. Here’s how to do it:

  • To enter the Recovery Mode on your Vivo S1 Pro, you need to turn off the phone. Then, press and hold the Power and Volume Down or Power and Volume Up buttons for 30 seconds.
  • Once you spot the Android logo, you can let go of the keys and boot into recovery mode.
  • Here, you need to select “Wipe Cache Partition” from the options available. To select, use the power button and navigate through the options using the volume up/down buttons, as there is no touchscreen available.
  • Finally, select the option “Reboot system now” and see if wiping cache partition made a difference or not.

5: Pull off a Hard Reset [ Vivo S1 Pro Stuck on Boot Screen ]

There are a few important points to consider when performing a hard reset on your Vivo S1 Pro. Keep in mind that this process will completely erase all data from your device and it cannot be retrieved unless you use a data recovery program. Additionally, while a hard reset is an effective solution for fixing software issues, you may need a technician to address any hardware-related problems. If you want to perform a hard reset, here is the process to follow.

  • Turn off your Vivo S1 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”. In order to navigate and make your selection, you will need to use the volume up/down and power buttons, as the touchscreen will not be functioning.
  • Next up, select “Yes — delete all user data” and the process will start.
  • Finally, hit the “Reboot system now” option and that should fix the stuck at boot screen problem for you.

6: Seek assistance from a professional

Turns out performing advanced troubleshooting like unlocking the bootloader, flashing custom ROMs, can be effective in resolving issue. You can seek help from a professional such as a technician from an authorized service center.

Closing Words
