Description

This is a guide on removing the Factory Reset Protection form a Samsung Galaxy Tab E, model SM-T377V. This model was unable to use the conventional methods for bypassing the FRP such as the rootjunky method. To bypass FRP, I eventually had to work some ADB magic.

  • Make sure ADB is installed, on Arch Linux this is done with:
    sudo pacman -S android-tools
    
  • Press and hold the Volume Down and Power buttons to boot into the maintenance mode.
  • Select Option 5 to enable ADB then press the Home Button to activate.
  • Reboot the device back into the initialization screen.
  • On the workstation with ADB installed run:
    adb shell content insert --uri content://settings/secure --bind name:s:user_setup_complete --bind value:s:1
    
    • If that command does not work, then try:
      adb shell am start -n com.google.android.gsf.login/
      
    • If THAT command does not work, then try:
      adb shell am start -n com.google.android.gsf.login.LoginActivity
      
  • Once the command has been entered, try to sign into the device using a newly created Google account. The verification should pass without any further problem.
