Nexus 5x (Nougat) gets into bootloop when system alarm goes off


AC Question

Hi, after updating to Nougat on Thursday, every time my morning alarm goes off my 5x crashes and gets stuck in a boot loop. I'm using the system alarm rather than a third party app.

I tested this by setting a couple of additional alarms and it crashed and ended up in a loop each time.

To fix it I can just about turn off the phone before it crashes again and sometimes restarting it will sort the issue, other times I'll need to wipe the cache and restart (after it crashes a dozen times in immediate succession).

Any ideas what's causing this and how I can actually fix the problem?
