Anyone with the bootloop problem has been successful on returning the 5X to life by replacing the motherboard?

Jago MF - Replica

that's a stupid question. new motherboard means new operating system. maybe you should just use fastboot and flash stock firmware on your phone easy

Alek Kels -

where can I get a new motherboard at?????

Alek Kels -

in most 'google image boot' issues, it is a hardware issue, not software. besides, the phone will not allow a bootloader option.

Chris Mayberry -

yes …….and its the only way after bootloop
