When a cellphone has a problem, reinstalling an Android cellphone is one of the options to solve the problem the fastest. Especially if the problems you are experiencing are related to the software or firmware from HP. Because just like on a computer, reinstalling on a cellphone is also useful for resetting all data and firmware on the cellphone. That way, your cellphone will be like new again without any files that make storage full or applications that interfere with Android performance.
How to reinstall an Android phone itself is not much different from reinstalling a computer. Therefore, let's find out how the complete tutorial is in the following article.
Before Reinstalling HP
Before reinstalling HP yourself, there are a few things you need to know first, including:
Reinstalling Will Erase All Data on HP
Just like on a computer, reinstalling HP will also delete all data on your cellphone. Whether it's photos, documents, music, videos, to all applications that are already installed in HP storage. Therefore, make sure you do a backup first before installing HP.
Special Firmware Required According to HP Series
Unlike computers that only require 1 firmware, namely Windows, the process of reinstalling HP requires different firmware and is adjusted to the brand of HP you are using.
For example, if you are using a Samsung A10 cellphone, then the firmware used must be specific to the A10. If you use firmware that doesn't match the HP series, even though it's still 1 brand, then your cellphone will fail to boot and end up not turning on at all.
Failed to Reinstall Can Cause Bigger Problems
In most cases, failing to reinstall an Android phone can cause bigger problems. For example, when the cellphone dies during the install process, the storage memory becomes corrupted.
Therefore, we suggest that you first prepare all the materials needed and understand this article to the end before starting to execute on your cellphone.
