Hi, I am an avid Android fan since its release. Later, I decided to merge my interests in writing and opened up GoAndroid Blog. I love to surf, write, read about new things.


  1. I installed the recent upgrade to my OP 5T and now the phone is not getting switched on, only the 1+ logo appears on pressing the power button and soon after it gets switched off.

    I have tried the ‘Volume Up + Power’ button combination and fastloader screen appears, i tried to enter recovery mode but it just gets switched off after the 1+ logo when i select recovery mode. My phone is not rooted.

    The battery is getting charged normally and this is an android upgrade issue. I am a newbie, any help would be appreciated. Thanks
