  • You may want to ensure that the boot animation file at /system/media is called boot.zip, and is owned by root (user 0, group 0), with rw-r--r-- (644) permissions. – Grimoire Apr 1 '16 at 15:55

Use ADB (Android Debug Bridge)

search for and install universal adb driver or your devices adb driver !

Once installed,

Wait for the bootloop and run this command in adb via command terminal (cmd)

adb devices

Does your device show up on pc ? if it does show up, type

adb kill-server

adb root

adb shell 


busybox rm /system/<you're location>

rm will remove the file specified, in this case it's the boot animation file ... Once removed, your device will boot with a stock android logo or a blank screen !

  • actually using adb is good but little difficult for beginers.. but you really gave a good idea.. thanks mate – Prabhu Gantayat Apr 1 '16 at 18:25
  • adb root wouldn't work on a production build of a kernel and given that you're already suggesting 'su', it is not needed. – Firelord Apr 2 '16 at 3:10

Look into restoring the stock ROM. This site appears to have it: http://firmwarefile.com/bsnl-penta-ws704dx they recommend using SP Flash Tool so it's Mediatek device, you may just be able to update the 'LOGO' Parition in order to fix it, but if that don't work then completely restore the stock rom.
