Google has just rolled out the update to XE16.1 in order to fix the bugs that XE16 came with, but it seems like it has even bigger problems.
A lot of users have reported that XE16.1 can cause a boot loop that prevents the device from booting. We don’t know what’s causing this and we haven’t been able yet to replicate the issue, but after discussing with a few Explorers that encountered the problem, we’ve been able to find a potential fix for it.
It seems like disabling all Glassware from MyGlass and performing a hard reset can fix the problem. After Glass boots, you can re-enable your Glassware and it should work fine.
We keep testing things and trying to find out of this is the right fix for it, but you should be careful in the meantime. Our suggestion is to wait until we have more information and stick with XE16 until then.
Once we’ll find out more we will update this post. It’s possible that Google will release a XE16.2 update in order to fix this problem too. Hopefully that one won’t create even more issues.
Please let us know in the comments form below if you’ve encountered the problem and if you managed to fix it.
