So I got the latest update for my note 8 last night and it seems to have ruined my phone. it is now stuck in a boot loop. After a while I was able to erase all app data but that didn't help either. I was wondering if anyone knows how to start it without having to do a factory reset and lose all my info I had on there as I wasn't able to back up everything and I have some really important notes, photos, and videos on there. thank you.

Did anyone use Smartswitch to backup their phone first? You can backup the phone to your SD card now, no need to connect to a computer! Factory reset your phone and reinstall your data through Smartswitch. 😉
