    Hi there, My midx5a has frozen on the android screen. I have tried letting the battery die and starting it up again. I have pushed the litte reset button near the sd card slot. What else can i do?

    Better question What don't I own, Oh a generic APAD
    OK, two quick but important questions.
    1. Is this device rooted?
    2. Did you apply/add a new application just prior to this problem.

    Let's see if you can boot into Safe Mode. On a X5a/X6 you should be able to enter safe mode by
    - Make sure no power is plugged in
    - Press the centre of the touchscreen, & keep it pressed
    - Power on the device as normal with the power button. Do not stop pressing the touchscreen
    - It should power up in Safe mode! (a message should be in the bottom left corner states this)

    If it does not power up into safe mode, then I am afraid, the device may be hosed. If it can boot into Safe Mode, consider the Apps and services installed, I would place it with Network Services disabled and some of the recent installed apps uninstalled. Also Go into Settings, Applications and Clear Cache for all installed apps. Attempt reboot.

    Apologies, I am diagnosing without seeing, so it can be many things.
