Tab A SM-T285 FRP Lock Need Help

On July 9, 2019, Posted by , With 7 Comments


As the title states, Im having issues getting around the FRP lock on a Galaxy Tab A SM-T285.

Obviously dont know the google account and password. Have tried flashing a custom ROM, but FRP lock blocks the binary. I flashed a combination ROM using ODIN and was able to access developer settings via Factory Binary, but there was no option to Enable OEM Unlock, even after accessing Developer Settings by clicking on the relevant tab 7 times.

I can install .apks on the device using the command module in adb toolkit, but none of the bypass FRP apks Ive tried seem to work, unfortunately.

Any ideas what I could try to bypass, or remove the FRP lock, or maybe enable OEM unlocking via some other means? Perhaps theres a direct line of code I can use via abd? I have root access via Kingroot and I have FileExplorer and Chrome (Along with full internet access) at my disposal.

The tablet belongs to a family member who locked themselves out. If I were being paid by the hour, Id already have spent more than the darned thing is worth, but its a matter of personal pride at this point.

Thanks!

    Thanks bro, I tried it but you can no longer download apps from the Samsung website title=frown Flashed the 4 files and got access to the internet via the dialler as per your method, but can’t get any further as Samsung have made it impossible to download Apps, meaning no access to the bypass apk.

    rnAppreciate the reply.

    UPDATE: I followed your method up until accessing the Samsung Store via the tablet’s browser and then because they’ve removed access to it via the web I used the Wayback Machine to search out the old Samsung apps website you put in your walkthrough. Couldn’t get to that particular site, but I managed to find an old Spanish one which still had download links. I emailed the links to my gmail account and by signing into gmail in my tablet’s browser and opening the links I was able to access the Samsung app store on the tablet.

    rnFrom there it was just a case of installing a file manager and running the rootjunky frp bypass .apk, then registering a new account on the phone.

    rnMany thanks, the workaround is still valid as long as you can access an old, but still working app store download link from the Wayback Machine archive of samsungapps dot com – from around June of 2016 title=big

    Nope, those were the first things I tired. ‘USB debugging mode enable’ is in ‘security’, not developer settings. I think you’re getting confused Along with ‘enable OEM unlock’ which is blocked by FRP and can’t be accessed, even after flashing a combination ROM. FRP also blocks enabling OEM unlock via ABD. It’s a dead duck, I’m afraid.

    rnAlready found a fix thanks to a slightly updated version of watari31’s workaround. See above for details.
