Nexus 6P bootloop after rooting

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So today I bought a used Nexus 6P for the purpose of installing Kali Nethunter on it, and then after some searching I found out that I should root the device first, so I did following this guide using SuperSU, I installed the SuperSU from this website, the phone then hung on the Google logo for like 30 minutes, then I found out that the SuperSU project is dead, I said maybe because it's an older phone the root should work and then I entered recovery mode through TWRP and went to the terminal and I saw the # sign and to make sure I ran the command whoami and it gave me root, and then I read that if I'm stuck in a bootloop I should reflash the ROM that I already have installed, but I said it wouldn't make a difference if I flashed Nethunter, it's a new ROM anyway, and now it's been stuck on the Google logo for another 30 minutes.
Any help would be appreciated, Thanks in advance.

First go in TWRP and wipe cache and dalvik cache. Then try again. This fixed so many things for me already.

 

You do not need to root with superSU (or Magisk) if you plan on installing a new ROM. That would wipe it anyway.

 

Try to follow the instructions of the official Nethunter thread on XDA:

You should flash the newest android version from google via fastboot beforehand though:

Not at all. You'll lose root as soon as you flash a new rom, so it's pointless.

 

As @Argeddion said, those are the steps you should follow:

 

~~ How to Install ~~

- Update to / flash the latest official Android release

- Install TWRP

- Copy Magisk and NetHunter image to a USB drive

- Reboot into TWRP, insert the USB drive.

- flash NetHunter image

- flash Magisk

- Reboot

- Run NetHunter app

- Reboot

 

Magisk will take care of the root process for you. Just flash it after the rom is installed.

Thanks for the reply and sorry for replying so late. I did what you said and the nethunter ROM got installed properly but in order to use the nethunter apps I have to root the device.
Thanks for the help.

Thank you! I flashed Magisk zip from TWRP and everything is working now.
