Due to various reasons you can experience soft related problems on your Nokia 8. What’s important is how you deal the actual issues in order to go back on track as soon as possible. Well, in order to help you out we are going to discuss about the Android Safe Mode and how to enter this dedicated environment on your own Nokia 8. Thus, if you want to learn how to initiate a troubleshooting solution on your device, don’t hesitate and check it all out.
The Android Safe Mode is a dedicated environment which can be accessed on your Nokia 8 without any sort of problems. This mode will run and can be entered even when the Android OS isn’t working at all – the Safe Mode runs independently from the Android Mode.
However, this mode cannot be access through built-in settings. You need to follow a dedicated reboot sequence in order to reach Safe Mode. The reason why the environment is hidden by default is easy: it can run only when the Android Mode is stopped – both mods cannot run in the same time on your phone.
Reaching Safe Mode is an official operation and can be completed without using any third party apps or other risky programs. Thus, you will complete an official process, supported by Nokia. The warranty of your Nokia 8 won’t get void, so from this perspective you have nothing to worry about.
Furthermore, you can enter the Android Safe Mode on the Nokia 8 even if your phone is rooted, running on an unlocked bootloader, installed with a custom recovery image or powered with a custom ROM firmware. This is a general / universal tutorial so you can safely bookmark this page as who knows when you will need to use some info from these lines.
When rebooted in Safe Mode the Android system will run only on the default apps. Thus, all third party tools, software and processes will be disabled. That’s why, by using this mode you can verify what’s not working properly on your Nokia 8. This should be the first thing to do when noticing malfunctions within the Android core system.
Usually, through Safe Mode you will be able to stop unresponsive programs, remove inappropriate apps, uninstall certain third party apps or delete malware. Therefore, you can use this step by step guide for trying to fix the most common Android soft related issues including boot loops, lags, bugs, force close errors, battery drain, heating issues, signal strength problems, hangs, total blackouts and so on.
A soft related problem can be caused by a third party app, by a new update, by corrupted Android files, by changes performed within the Android core system or by certain tweaking operations. As a general rule, you should always download and install only apps that received good reviews on Google Play, you shouldn’t use apps from other sources than Google Play, you must install only fully stable updates and you need to install an antivirus program on your Nokia 8 – that’s how you can keep your smartphone out of problems.
If possible you should backup your data before starting the troubleshooting process. In some situations, entering and using Safe Mode is just not enough and further solutions must be applied – you might have to make a hard reset or even to reinstall the stock Android firmware. So, for avoiding any further unpleasant situations you should first save everything that’s not there by default: contacts, call logs, texts, images, videos, audio files, market apps, internet settings, calendar info, saved passwords, IMEI / NVRAM data and so on. On the Nokia 8 you can already use built-in cloud storage platforms or you can choose to sync your files with your Google Account. Additionally, you can go to Google Play and download dedicated (and already tested) backup and restore apps.
One last thing: charge your Nokia 8 before initiating any troubleshooting solution. You should plug in the charger before accessing and using safe mode if the power left is currently lower than 50%. If you skip this process you can end up in experiencing further problems.
