    I own a Blackview A5, a fairly cheap China smartphone - with Android 6.0.
    It used to work fine until tonight. It had a kind of glitch where it wouldn't show the right time in the top menu bar, so I decided to reboot.
    The phone however got stuck in a boot loop. I charged the phone and tried again - no luck. So I decided to go to recovery mode and wipe the device if necessary.

    On the Blackview A5, you can go to the boot menu with Volume Up + Power.
    The phone shows the following text on screen:

    -------------------
    Select Boot Mode:
    [VOLUME_UP to select. VOLUME_DOWN is OK.]

    [Recovery Mode]
    [Fastboot Mode]
    [Normal Boot] <<==
    -------------------

    If I select Normal Boot, it gets stuck in the Bootloop. If I select Fastboot, nothing happens.
    If I select Recovery Mode, the Blackview Logo will show up in the background for a moment, then the phone will show the "No command."-screen with the lying Android, belly open, red Exclamation sign. It seems I can only turn off the phone from there.

    I do not know what to do. Does anyone have suggestions?

    Welcome to the forums. Try again for recovery, but hold power and click volume up.

    Hello and thanks for the reply. I am the OP, I just registered.

    Actually, I got into the menu like this:
    - Select Recovery mode
    - When showing "no command", hold Power and push Volume Up.

    Thank you for the help!
