Many Samsung users do not know how to install firmware to their devices. That’s why if they encounter problems like bootloop, hang on logo or softbrick, they resort to service centers. This tutorial will guide you on the Samsung Galaxy J2 SM-J200GU hang on logo solution. Just make sure the device is detected by your PC. It is also applicable for any softbricked or bootlooped devices caused by ROM flashing failures.
Stuck on logo and bootloop are results of system files not knowing how to function during the initial start-up phase and can be caused by a variety of things, from downloading new apps to accidentally changing system files. Your device keeps rebooting into the recovery mode instead of the normal mode that it is supposed to boot into. It is one of the common problems Android users face on their devices.
