Obi MV1 is a fine low-end Android smartphone. Having used it for months, I really can’t say it’s great. Sure, the design of the Obi MV1 turns head but that’s about it. Whatever be, let’s come to the point. So, you have your Obi MV1 stuck in bootloop, right? Here’s how you fix it!


So, suddenly, for no reason, if your Obi MV1 has given up on you, don’t worry. You are not alone. Even better, you can get the phone fixed at your home! How to do it? This is the guide I recommend you to follow. Before that, here’s a bad news. All the files and photos that you have in the phone will be destroyed if you don’t have a backup of them in a Micro-SD card or in the cloud.

After completing the process

Follow the steps to fix the Obi MV1 stuck in a boot loop (No computer required):

  • Take out the battery of the phone to completely power down the phone.
  • Put the battery back on the phone again.
  • Press the power button and volume down simultaneously for 3-4 seconds.
  • You will now be in the recovery screen.
  • 1st, clear the cache partition. (You can navigate it menu using volume buttons and power button)
  • Then, select wipe data/factory reset (Your phone will be formatted and you will lose all your files by doing so) 
  • After it is done. Restart your Obi MV1.
  • You can setup the phone as a brand new phone.

Note: You need to know the Google account used before resetting the phone. You will be asked the Email credentials you used before setting up the phone. 

Update 1: There’s a bug in the Facebook app (latest version) which causes the phone to crash and restart the bootloop. So, we highly recommend you not to install the latest version of Facebook.

Say no to latest version of Facebook if you own the Obi MV1

  1. Hello! So, I have a Obi MV1 and there’s more and more apps that cause this issue. First Facebook, then Spotify, now Unified Remote… And maybe more, I can’t keep track. Is there a new solution? I have to reset my phone every week because of the automatic updates.

  2. The Three app also causes this issue. It’s infuriating, makes the phone unusable. Shame there is no alternative firmware to fix the problem:-(
