How can I start a bootlooping phone in Safe Mode?
Hi everyone. Exactly a week today at this time, I updated Podcast Addict on my Alcatel One Touch M'pop 5020D. No I did not download it myself. I got it from a friend through an app share file. I only found the need to use it last week and I was prompted to update it, after which it shut down immediately I opened it. And then other apps started shutting down too. So before going to bed I restarted the cell. I woke up at dawn to realize it was stuck in bootloop.
I've tried wiping the cache partition and performing a factory reset in Recovery Mode, but that hasn't helped. Fortunately or unfortunately (I'm currently in a state of confusion as to whether or not this was a good decision after all) my phone is not rooted. I therefore can not apply several options in fixing this. I'd like to know if there's anyway, any medium at all, that I can boot into Safe Mode so I can uninstall the Podcast Addict. And probably other apps I'd received from another friend during that same week. Thanks for the help.
