2) Change Resolution
This option resets the resolution of the display to the default display. This can help with blank screen errors and can be used to force the system to restart and exit the boot loop.

4) Update System Software
This option allows users to update the system via direct download or through a USB. Updates are usually known to fix most bugs and issues with the system and make it smooth. They can be very effective in breaking boot loops and exiting safe mode.
5) Reset the system
