    I've had my nexus 6p for only a couple days now and somethings gone wrong. My phone won't boot up and is stuck on the Google boot logo. When I hold down the power button, it displays a message saying "device is corrupt and cannot be trusted" I held down volume and power button to get to the boot loader which was fine however when I went into recovery the logo of the dead android and no command message keeps flashing between that and a blank screen. I don't understand what's going on, could someone please help me thanks.

    Welcome to Android Central! Are you on Nougat? If so, it sounds like the Verified Boot feature has been triggered: Android and chill: Nougat and the root question | Android Central. Did someone try to root the phone?

    No I've only had the phone for a couple days and don't even know how to root a device. I don't know how my device can get soft bricked without me even rooting it but I think that's my problem.

    Did you buy it new or used? If it was used, then the previous owner may have rooted or otherwise modified the phone.

    Bring it back to wherever you got it and ask for an exchange or refund. If you got it from Google, then contact them for repair or replacement.

    I bought it new but I tried to fix it and I don't think the warranty will work now.

    You bought the phone 2 days ago, and you've already voided the warranty? Did you try opening the phone up for some reason? Or did you drop the phone, leaving clear evidence of damage?

    No I havnt done either. But yesterday I managed to fix it and was able to get and is my phone throughout the whole day. But this morning I woke up and it did the same thing again. Except it doesn't say device is corrupt. It just won't boot up.

    So what makes you believe your warranty won't work?

    I don't think the warranty will work because I've messed around with device. Tried flashing it and all of that stuff. I got it to work again this morning though but I have a feeling tomorrow when I wake the device will be stuck on the Google logo again and I'll have to flash the phone for a third time.

    Yep and to no surprise I wake up this morning and stuck on Google logo. So I don't know whether it's got something to do with charging. But over night the nexus reboots, gets stuck on Google logo and when I go into recovery mode, the page keeps switching from the dead android to a blank screen
