In this post I am going to discuss what is Bricked Android (soft and hard), what happens when Android phone gets bricked, and what you can do to fix bricked Android and how to recover data from bricked Android phone or tablet.

Let start with a real user practical scenario!

How to recover data from bricked LG G2 - without a factory reset?

I have a bricked G2. It will open FastBoot, but FastBoot doesn't completely work right. Or, I can get it into Recovery mode, where it gives me the option of a factory reset.

I have data (pics, vids, docs) on the device that I don't want to risk overwriting, so I'm trying to avoid writing anything to the device. I want to recover those files.

Is there any Windows- or Ubuntu-based software that can scan this bricked G2 for files? Final note: the files were deleted recently before the bricking, so most of them will still be there, not overwritten, though deleted.

Is Bricked Android Phone Data Recovery Possible?


Yes, the data recovery from bricked Android phone or tablet is possible. There are few solutions out there that you can try and easily restore your valuable data from your bricked Android phones. But before that let us know what exactly bricked Android is?


What Is Bricked Android?

The condition when your Android phone or tablet completely stops working and it does not respond to any of your commands (either by physical button or touch). Your phone will turn ON in any way and there nothing you can do to fix it.

In this situation, your device is stuck in recovery mode or boot loop and it is not bricked. Fortunately, you still have a few chances that you can do to make it work again normal, without losing anything.

Also, there is two type of bricking – the soft brick and hard brick. The soft bricking occurs when there are some errors in software and hard bricking occurs when hardware of the device malfunction.

So, what happens when an Android phone is bricked?

Well, when Android is bricked you will not be able to use your device anymore. During OS update or rooting process, if it is interrupted then your device gets bricked. Normally, Android phone is soft bricked – that cannot boot ROM and continues to reboot or do not Turn ON at all, and if you try to run it in recovery mode, the phone hangs or freezes.

How To Fix Bricked Android Phone Or Tablet?

If your Android device is soft bricked, then you can fix it by performing the factory reset or formatting the Cache Partition that will delete all user's data and cache files to make the device run again.

However, if your device is hard bricked then I doubt your phone will get repaired or fixed.  In hard bricked, your Android device becomes completely useless.
