Rescue Party in Android 8.0 Oreo aims to save devices from bootloops


Bootloops is one of the common problems faced by Android users, where the smartphone reboots, and keeps on rebooting over and over. Now in an attempt to minimize the damage of bootloops, Google has implemented a new feature in Android 8.0 Oreo called Rescue Party.

The Rescue Party feature does not require any hardware support and is enabled by default on Android Oreo. It comes into play when it notices core system components stuck in bootloops. Rescue Party then then takes different actions to recover the device, and as a last resort, it reboots the device into recover mode, and prompts user to perform a factory reset.

Rescue Party receives information about boot and crash events and starts if:
  • The system_server restarts more than 5 times in 5 minutes
  • A persistent system app crashes more than 5 times in 30 seconds
When your Android device is in any one of these situations, Rescue Party escalates to the next level, processes the task associated with that level, and lets the device proceed to see if it recovers. Each level is progressively more aggressive in what it clears or resets. The final level prompts the user to factory reset the device.

The Rescue Party feature will come in handy when things go South during updating software or custom ROM installation.
