  2. @disqus_JRJcRwIymz:disqus is your phone stuck on bootloop? Please tell me what phone are you using? You may need to perform a factory reset from recovery to recover it, or you may need to flash a stock firmware now.

  3. When I use messenger, the messages are on my tablet as well. If I clear data, will that delete all messages off all my devices, or just my phone, where I am getting the error message?
