I will show you how I solved the YES Altitude smartphone that stuck at boot loop and keep restarting.
But before that, let me briefly tell you the background of my YES Altitude smartphone model M631Y.
Previously I have used the internet from YES 4G. At that time, the allocated quota was split into the huddle and the 4G sim card.
So I bought the YES Altitude smartphone to use the 4G sim card and utilize the quota, otherwise, it would be wasteful.
After I terminated the YES 4G internet service, rarely this smartphone been used by me. When I wanted to use it recently, I got the boot loop problem.
Watch the video how I solved the problem from this link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R3geHltSKts or directly from below.
The possible causes of the problems:
- Bad battery
- Bad hardware
- Bad software/OS
I tried out the first possibility. I would replace the battery with a new one. If after replacing the battery would not fix the boot loop, then I need to send it to the repair shop.
There were choices of replacement battery for YES Altitude
There were a few choices of new batteries available. The most important part is to make sure that the new chosen battery compatible with my model which was M631Y.
I noticed that there were at least 3 options for the replacement battery for my YES Altitude battery:
- Blue M631Y battery
- Green M631Y battery
- Battery for Lenovo smartphones
After I made my consideration, I decided to go for the Lenovo battery.
Did replacing the battery fix the YES Altitude boot loop?
After I replaced the battery, thank God, my YES Altitude is no more stuck with boot loop problem.
The Lenovo battery could only be charged to somewhere above 80%, as of 2 charge cycles so far.
The standby time is quite decent i guess, it can hold the charge for 4-5 days before getting below 20%.
Previously, the original battery could not hold the charge for long. It drained fast and felt too warm when I used the smartphone.
The reason I did not go for the real replacement battery for M631Y was due to this. I am afraid it will suffer the same problem shortly.
