[sc:mobile-category ]A while ago I upgraded my HTC 8X to a Nokia 925 which means my 8X was just lying around.
A friend of mine was still using an old BlackBerry and was stuck on his contract for quiet a while yet. I offered him my 8X and he’s been using it for a few days now but he called me with an issue.
He plugged it in to charge and it started in to an infinite reboot cycle. It would start-up, starting loading but before the “Microsoft Windows Phone” loading screen could be displayed it would reboot and start all over.
Doing a quick search turned up trying a hard reset, but it didn’t seem to let you do a hard reset in the cycle it was in. Without the power cable in, the phone wouldn’t come on at all.
We pulled the SIM card but no difference.
While trying a few different things, I happened to pull the USB cable out while it was rebooting and instead of cycling again, it continued to boot all the way up.
It was a strange occurrence and we’ll have to watch to see if it happens again but the phone seems fine now.
