Re: Motherboard problem

To all of my fellow Lenovo K8 note users if you are facing with the problem of boot loop, freezing and constant restarting of your phone then its the problem with the motherboard and not the Oreo update. Yesterday i was able to used the phone temporarily by cooling it in the refrigerator that gave me the hint that there is some loose connection or dry solder due to which the phone was not working. Mainly this loose connection must have happened due to over heating of Media Tek X23 CPU. 
So i decided to do the re-balding soldering of the motherboard. Now the right way to do it is using the Hot Air Station, but if you don't have it then you can even bake the motherboard in oven. Follow the steps below
1) Carefully open the back and disconnect the flex cables for Battery, volume button, LCD and Daughter USB charge boards (Watch some YouTube Videos Online)
2) Unscrew the Motherboard and take it out from the casing. 
3) Remove the metal shields covering the CPU, there will be 4 shields but only 2 of them are removable, the other 2 are soldered to the motherboard so don't try to remove it if you don't have Hot Air Station.
4) Heat the IC underneath the shields with Hot Air Station, If you don't have Hot Air station then put the mother board on a ceramic or non conductive plate and then place it inside the Oven for Baking. !!!! WARNING DO NOT MICROWAVE IT !!!! You need to use the setting of your Oven similar to what you would use for Baking breads.
5) The Oven should be Pre-heated to 230 Celsius before you put the motherboard.
6) Set the timer to 10 to 15 minutes and let it bake 
7) Once the baking time is over, then let the Motherboard cool inside the oven until is cool to touch.
8) Put Heat sink compound on top of the IC/CPU and Metal Shield plates
9) Reassemble everything and test if it works.
10) Don't forget to give my reply a like if it works for you, All the Best!!!
I have attached some photos of the motherboard with some instructions on Lenovo Forum, Go to page 45 on the below link
