7 + things to do to repair your failing Android

on

Being a pretty hack Android user, I can confidently say that I have exposed myself to enough problems and other challenges that have helped me understand the popular Google OS (which just dethusing Windows elsewhere).
I will in this article give you a small checklist to pass when your device decides not to work properly.

#1-in doubt, reboot!

As ironic as it may be, this phrase (very well known on IRC) that was valid for Windows especially becomes a standard. If your device behaves strangely, the best thing is to restart it to see more clearly.

#2-check system updates

Checking for updates will allow you to make sure that you have the latest version without any bugs. A precautionary Word though. In a new update, everyone in the habit of darken to install it. Be aware that installing an update can raise problems with your Android device. Before you embark on this task, be sure to save everything and mentally prepare to have unexpected bugs. It's rare but possible that an update will have your device bugged instead of improving it, which is why I take the OTA (over the air) updates with caution.

#3-clear application cache

Emptying the application cache is very important. This will certainly reset your application settings but it also helps to repair abnormal behavior of your device or application. What for? It's pretty simple. After a software update of your Android device or more commonly an update of one of your applications, some information changes. Some data may not be compatible with your new software version. Before treating the developers of all the names by telling you "why they have not foreseen this particular case" remember that they can not predict everything and that covering all the possibilities of this infinite world is of the realm of not feasible. Resetting your apps will allow you to fix the problems your Android device suffers.

To flush the application cache…

Go to settings ➡ applications ➡ the application to be reset and find the button that allows you to delete the data from the application.

#4-empty the device cover

Your Android device to a tote folder. It uses it to place temporary files. Sometimes these files remain in this folder. By adding to each other, the cache file can quickly become huge (1.19 GB in my case the first time I noticed a storage anomaly). To clean up your Android device's cache folder, go to settings ➡ storage ➡ cached data
Here, a few mega-free?

#5-use clean master or other

Although my favorite remains SD maid and Ext2SD, many people are equipped with the very famous clean master. The cleaning application can help in some cases even if I advise you to handle it with tweezers.

#6-go to recovery and make a wipe cache

In the event that your device fails to start correctly or you cannot access Android, it is possible to boot into recovery mode and perform a wipe cache and wipe Dalvik if possible. These operations are a little more advanced. If you don't know what I'm talking about, you can look for how to start your device in recovery mode. Attention still, we are in a dangerous territory. Recovery is not a mode dedicated to the lambda user.

#7-factory reset

Attention! You may lose data! Be sure to have at least made a backup of your device's data!
This step will reset the device and zero as at day 1 when you received it, your data will be lost and you will have to reinstall everything. Be careful with this option. To do so, you can search for how to reset your mobile device, via Android or through the recovery of your device.

Bonus-the last resort

If after all your attempts your device is still struggling to function properly, I advise you forums such as FrAndroid or XDA forums. Members will be able to help you and why not help you install a whole new ROM?.

This is for this article, I hope it will be useful to you. Know that it is especially in relation to my experience
personal, so it is possible that I am completely on certain points. I remain open to all your questions and suggestions!
