The Kurio Is Stuck on the Boot Screen ¶

Software Problems ¶
This is likely a malfunction of the device's software. Try rebooting first! After that, refer to the Kurio website for possible updates or a firmware replacement.
The Kurio Is Not Charging Properly ¶
Refer below to match your symptoms to a potential cause.
The Battery Gets Hot while Charging ¶
First of all, try not to use your Kurio while it is charging! This places strain on the electrical components and can cause serious malfunction!
If it is still overheating while idly charging, consider replacing the battery altogether. We have a guide for that too!
The Battery Has a Short Life ¶
Sometimes the computer sensor to the battery is no longer in sync with the actual battery level. Try running the battery down to about 5% and then fully charge it up. If this doesn't work, your Kurio's battery will naturally lose its ability to fully charge over the life of the product. Consider buying a new battery and use the battery replacement guide for further instructions.
