    Default Galaxy S5 - Launcher Loop - Phone Unusable

    So today I was on snapchat when it froze and then it came up with an error message and instead of close i tapped wait. I waited for 10 minutes and it stayed frozen and unresponsive on the same screen. I popped the back off and I took the battery out and put it back in. Now my phone starts up and then switches from nova launcher to the default launcher back and forth over and over again and I cant do anything besides change the volume and lock and turn off my phone. Is there any way I can factory reset through my PC? I cant get to my settings through my phone to do it because of the constant loop.

    Welcome to Android Central! Try booting into Recovery Mode and wiping the cache partition, which won't erase any personal data: Reset: Samsung Galaxy S 5 | T-Mobile Support
