Hi there,

Sorry to hear about your dad.

Carrying out a hard reset should get around the verification and make the phone work again.

Let me know if these are the steps you took:

If the phone still isn't responding, please let me know what error message you are getting on it.

I already have tried both methods to bypass FRP account verification -- with AND without OTG.The problem I encountered with the one using OTG is that, the file explorer does not open or show for me to run any .apk that would bypass the account verificationThe problem I encountered with not using OTG is that SideSync does not detect the phone. My laptop detects the phone, however.

Hi there and welcome

While it is locked you cannot communicate correctly with the phone as its protecting the data.

But what exactly do you now see on the screen of the phone?

I did a hard reset, wiping out all the data of the phone.Im stuck with is the account verification and cannot move forward. I cannot move forward because of the full reset protection by google -- which Im asking how to bypass it. I have done what the previous expert did (again) and tried other methods but to no avail.

ok, there is no way to bypass it, not even Google themselves will do it.

It is there to protect the phone against theft

But why can you not enter in the details for it?

Because my dad passed away and his email address is the one synched.So I guess I'm pretty much stuck with an expensive paper weight?
