Fix Note 10 Stuck at Samsung Logo in a bootloop at Startup:
There are a number of reasons why your Note 10 can be stuck in a bootloop. Each reason has its different solution. So first, you need to figure out how and why it happened. If you have no idea how your phone got stuck in a bootloop. Like all of a sudden, your phone restarted and now it won’t pass the Samsung logo screen. Or it happened after an OTA update from Samsung. Start with the first method of clearing cache and move downwards if the issue is persistent.
If your Note 10 got stuck at Samsung logo after you flashed a firmware, or recovery or while you were trying to root it. Then the only method that is going to fix your phone will be to flash stock firmware using either a smart switch or ODIN. Which is the last method in this guide. Now, let us move on to the methods.
Clear Cache Partition from the recovery menu:
First of all, let us move on to the easy solution which has no side effects. Clearing cache won’t delete any of the data that is present on your phone. If there is some corrupt cache that is stopping your phone from booting the operating system properly. Clearing the cache will probably solve the issue.
In order to clear cache, follow the steps below:
- So, first of all. Turn off your Galaxy Note 10 or Note 10+.
- Now press and hold Volume up and Side Button until you see Samsung Logo.
- Now, you will be in the Recovery menu.
- You will see a number of options in that menu. Use volume buttons to navigate and use the power button to select “Wipe Cache Partition“.
- It might take some seconds or minutes to complete the action. Once done, you will see log entry on the bottom side of your phone.
- Once you have successfully deleted the cache of Galaxy Note 10. Use volume buttons to navigate to “Reboot system“. Your phone will restart now.
Hopefully, this will solve the issue of the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 stuck at Samsung Logo in a bootloop at startup. If this didn’t fix your phone, the next thing to try is to factory reset your phone using the recovery menu.
Factory Reset Galaxy Note 10 to fix Bootloop issue:
So, the second method is to perform a factory reset. The downside of this method or the side effect (you may call it) is that you will lose all the data that is present in the internal storage of your Note 10. All the data that was not backed up to your Google account or Samsung cloud will be lost.
As your phone does not pass the boot screen. We will perform the factory reset from the recovery menu. Following are the steps to factory reset Galaxy Note 10 or Note 10+ from the recovery menu.
- First of all, just like in the method above. Turn off the phone and get into the recovery menu by pressing and holding the Volume up and Side button till you see the Recovery menu.
- Once done, use the volume bar to select the option “Wipe Data/Factory Reset”.
- It will give you a warning that all your data on the internal storage of your phone will be lost. Move on to factory reset your phone.
- It might take some time, once done your phone will restart on its own.
I hope once its restarts, it’ll pass by the Samsung logo and successfully load the operating system. If still Note 10 is stuck at Samsung logo at startup. Then the last resort in the guide below to flash the stock firmware.
Fix Bootloop by Flashing stock firmware on Note 10 Stuck at Samsung Logo:
There are multiple ways to flash stock firmware on your Note 10. You can either use the smart switch, which might or might not detect your phone considering it is in bootloop. The other method to flash stock firmware is via ODIN. Which is official software that can be used on Samsung devices to flash firmware and recoveries. ODIN is being used for this purpose from the days of S2 and S3. ODIN is a little complex as compared to smart switch but ODIN works for sure and you can fix the issues if there exists any. Whereas in smart switch, the control is with the software, all you can do is select from the prompted options. If you are not a tech-savvy person smart switch is the best choice. If you can handle little complex things, you can go for ODIN.
I have both methods explained thoroughly in this guide. Both methods are explained with screenshots of how to use both tools. It will help you to flash stock firmware in order to fix Note 10 stuck at Samsung logo in a bootloop.
Flashing stock firmware will most probably delete all the data present in your phone unless you find the exact same firmware that is already loaded on to your Note 10. You will see more details on that in the guide on flashing firmware which I have linked above.
