    Nick, do you know anything about phones? My wife's LG V10 started going into boot loop last night. Tried removing the battery and reseting but it still just loops...hammer time?

    It is said that the only fix that has been effective to date is to put the handset into the freezer or put it in an oven with the oven on minimal heat. It seems that pulling the battery or doing a factory reset doesn’t help.

    Unlike the LG G5 where owners only suffered from boot loops in the earlier batches, this time around it has been said that the problems with the V10 arrived ten months after the release of the device. The only good news is that the handsets are under warranty. Below is a U tube video on the warranty.

    That only works until it warms up and isn't a permanent fix.
