…then this article is for you! Some people will suggest you back up all your saves, and delete Minecraft completely, then reinstall from a disc. Not only is that cumbersome, but it’s not an option for many users who bought the game digitally.

More than 300 people have confirmed they’re stuck on the Mojang logo screen on their bug tracker site. These numbers usually only represent a fraction of the user base since most users don’t report bugs. It seems this is one of the tops bugs plaguing the Bedrock edition of the game right now.

Fortunately, even though this bug hasn’t been patched out completely yet, Mojang has put out a hotfix that will allow you to fix it yourself!
