Hi, here's a little bit of background, OG Droid is unrooted; for a couple of months I've been getting "Low Internal Memory" and "Text Memory Full" notifications, so I usually delete some apps, backup my texts to the SD Card before deleting them from my phone, and clean my browser history. This usually works fine for a while. The phone is kinda slow but I make due, I'm (relatively) patient for a smartphone user and try not to put any extra apps on I don't think it can handle. When I used the browser, the phone would get pretty hot in that compartment area next to the camera that says "With Google", not to mention the temperature of the battery. Sometimes the phone freezes and resets itself, I don't panic but I assume it's overworked and I leave it to cool.
Today I was using the browser and the phone did freeze, and it did reset, but it kept resetting in that boot loop. It boot loops whether or not it's charging, whether or not the SD Card is in; and I cannot get to Safe Mode-- I'm starting to wonder if I was even pushing the right buttons to boot in Safe Mode. I can get to the Recovery Screen after the yellow triangle, but I don't know what any of the menu options mean, aside from factory reset, which I'd like to do as a last resort since I haven't backed up last months texts.
What do these menu options mean, and should I use them? In the meantime, I'm taking the battery and SD Card out of the phone and leave it all to rest overnight and get themselves together, if possible.
Thank you in advance <3
