LG Phoenix 4 was launched by AT&T in 2018 with Android Nougat 7.1. It received one major update in its lifecycle. The latest available Software for Phoenix 4 is Android 8.1
In this post, we are going to use the latest & easiest 2021 hack to get past the Google Verification on Phoenix 4 without a computer.
The Factory Reset Protection (FRP) on Phoenix 4 becomes effective when you hard factory reset your phone via the Recovery Mode (using volume down + power keys). After the reset, during the device setup, we need to verify with the previously synced Google account.
If you don’t remember the last synced Google account, follow the below hack to reach your Phoenix 4 home screen –
I was locked out on my Phoenix 4. After doing a factory reset using the volume down & power keys, I’ve landed on the “Welcome” screen.
Let’s hit the “Forward button” to move ahead.
In the next step, we need to connect our phone to a Wifi network.
After getting connected to the internet, it’s checking for updates.
After a few minutes, it brings us to the “Copy apps & data” screen.
Choose “Set up as new” to move ahead.
Now, it brings me to the pattern verification page. I don’t remember the correct lock screen pattern. There is one more option – “USE MY GOOGLE ACCOUNT INSTEAD”. Let’s pick this option.
We are now on Google’s “Verify your account” screen. It’s asking to sign in with the previously synced Google account on this device.
Let’s use the latest and easiest 2021 method to bypass the Google lock on Phoenix 4 –
How to bypass Google Verification – FRP lock on LG Phoenix 4 AT&T lm-x210apm without computer 2021
To bypass the FRP lock we need to go 2 steps back using the back button.
Tap the back key 2 times to go back from the “Verify your account” page to the “Set Internet connection” screen.
We are now on the “Set Internet Connection” screen.
On this page, you need to tap the “Wifi button” and the “Next button” at the same time. You can refer to the above screenshot.
When you’ll click both the buttons simultaneously, it’ll bring you to the “Date & Time” screen.
You’ll get a hang of it in a few tries.
Now, hit “NEXT” to proceed further.
Again click “NEXT” on the “Name” page.
Now, we have reached the “Protect your phone” screen.
We are going to use this page to add a new PIN, Pattern, or Password.
This new lock will replace the old pattern lock.
I’ve picked the PIN option.
Choose “No, thanks” on the “Secure Start-up screen” and click “NEXT”.
Enter an easy-to-remember PIN code.
Re-enter the PIN and tap “OK”.
A confirmation text flashes on the screen – “Screen lock has been changed.”
Now, we are going to use this new PIN to bypass the Google lock.
After adding the new PIN it brings me to the “Google Services” page.
Accept Google services terms and conditions.
Now, we are once again on the “Set Internet Connection” screen.
Turn on Wifi and click “NEXT”.
Now, it brings us to the screen lock PIN verification screen. You must have noticed that the old Pattern lock is now replaced with a PIN lock.
Verify with PIN we added a few steps ago i.e. 1234
The PIN verification is successful. We get the “Skip” option on the Google sign-in screen.
Skip the Google account set up and hit “NEXT” on the “Date and Time” screen.
The following page is “Google Services”. Accept the terms and conditions to move ahead.
Now, we have reached the last screen of the setup wizard i.e. the “Legal Documents” page.
Tick all the “I agree” checkboxes and select “DONE” to complete the device setup.
We have successfully landed on the LG Phoenix 4 home screen, thus bypassing the Google account verification.
