STUCK ON LOGO
This is a very common issue among almost all smartphones. It is caused by a number of reasons ie corrupt firmware among others and in our upcoming series we shall see how to overcome this.
The term “locked” refers to a devices being “SIM locked”. What this means is that the phone locked to that specific carrier and all the settings are optimized for that carrier
It means that the main OS ie. Android is not able to read the code of another chipset called modem (or CP). This chipset is separate chipset running the binary called base-band. Baseband is stored in a separate partition inside the flash storage, just along the main Android OS.
Well, having identified our device chipset and complication next we are going to review different software, how to install and use it so as to resolve these complicatons and leave smiles on our customer faces.
