 So you've bricked your phone. You flashed a ROM, installed a mod, tweaked a system file, or did something else and now your phone won't boot. Don't panic! It's almost certainly fixable. Here's how to unbrick an Android phone. 

How to unbrick an Android

What does a Bricked Phone mean?

A 'bricked phone' is usually unresponsive, won't power on, and doesn't function normally.

Like me even if you have a habit of trying something new every time then its obvious thing that you will come across several issues. This means that your phone will not be able to boot properly. This situation comes to user when they try to flash a custom ROM, download some harmful apps, or try to root their android device. 

How Is Your Phone Bricked?

The steps for how to unbrick a phone depend on how it's bricked in the first place. There are two categories of bricked phones: 

1. The soft brick

A soft-bricked android phone is the issue where the device will not turn on properly, means the device is half-way dead but good thing is that the soft bricked can be repaired.

Some symptoms seen by user when they face soft-bricked android error. They are:

  • Device gets frozen on boot screen
  • Sometimes the device directly boots in recovery mode
  • Stuck at boot loop
  • Black or White Screen of Death

2. The hard brick

When your device stuck at hard brick then it means that the device is completely dead. The phone will not turn on even after pressing the power button many times. This is caused due to Kernel, which is tempered by user. Hard bricks are terrible news, but fortunately, they're quite rare.

What you need to unbrick your device

Most likely, you're soft bricked. There are four common tricks you can try to get yourself back on track:
  • Disable Magisk/Exposed module through recovery
  • Wipe data and Re-flash a custom ROM
  • Restore a Nandroid backup
  • Flash stock firmware
So go through the methods one by one and try to fix the problem that you have come across. 

1. Disable Magisk/Xposed module through recovery

Try this method if: You get boot loops after installing a new Magisk/Exposed module.

The best of the modules are so easy to install, many of them are available on the web. It's unlikely anyone makes a Nandroid backup before installing a new  module, even though they can brick your phone.
  1. Boot into your custom recovery
  2. Select Advanced > File Manager 
  3. Navigate to the folder /data/adb/modules
  4. Delete the module(file)
  5. At last, Reboot your phone 

2. Wipe data and Re-flash a custom ROM

Try this method if: You flashed a ROM, and now Android won't boot.

One of the most likely causes of soft bricking your phone is when you have problems when flashing a new custom ROM. The culprit here is often that you didn't wipe your data first.  

Fortunately, it's easy to fix---as long as you've backed up your phone properly. If you haven't, well, you've learned an important lesson the hard way. Follow these steps:

  1. Boot into your custom recovery.
  2. Navigate to the Wipe > Advanced Wipe.
  3. Check the box marked Data (you can wipe the system and cache again, too), then swipe to  Confirm.
  4. Re-flash your custom ROM.

3. Restore a Nandroid Backup

Try this method if: You need to remove other system mods, replace a tweaked system file, or if the methods above didn't work.

The Nandroid backup is the safety net for Android mods and tweaks. Not just your data and apps, but of the operating system itself. So long as you can access your custom recovery and have a Nandroid backup, you will be able to get your soft bricked device up and running. To do so:
  1. Boot into recovery and navigate to Restore.
  2. Select your backup from the list, confirm, and wait while it's restored.
  3. Reboot your phone.

4. Flash Stock firmware

Try this method if: None of the other options work.

If your attempts at unbricking Android have failed so far, the nuclear option is to re-flash a factory image. This restores the phone to its original state and will wipe your internal storage as well as everything else. It'll also unroot your phone.
To do so first download all the necessary files:

Downloads: Samsung Odin Samsung latest firmwares
  1. Download your device firmware
  2. Extract (unzip) the Samsung firmware file. Recommended using WinRAR or 7-Zip
  3. Download Odin Tool 3.13.1
  4. Extract Odin ZIP file
  5. Open Odin execute file
  6. Reboot Samsung phone in Download Mode
  7. Connect you Samsung phone and wait until you get a blue sign in Odin
  8. Add the 1 file Samsung firmware to AP/PDA or 4 files Samsung firmware (AP/BL/CP/CSC) to it's slots
  9. Make sure re-partition is NOT ticked
  10. Click the START button, sit back and wait few minutes
