After a long wait, Xiaomi Mi A2 Lite is finally receiving the much-awaited Android 10 update, but unfortunately, it caused a boot loop bug on the device. After installing the update and rebooting the Mi A2 Lite, the phone stuck on the Android One boot screen. Here’s a possible workaround.

Many Xiaomi Mi A2 Lite users reported about the boot loop bug on their device. It appears like this: Once the Android 10 OTA update finishes the installation and tap on the ‘Restart now’ button, the phone reboots. But, it stuck in the boot screen, and random pixel lines appeared and slowly started disappearing.
