Are you stuck on the Google Verification Screen on your LG Rebel 4? Don’t worry you are at the right place. In a few minutes, you’ll be able to use your phone once again.
On Rebel 4 the Google’s Factory Reset Protection (FRP) comes into effect if you reset the phone using the volume down and power button via Recovery Mode.
In this post, we are going to use the latest hack to bypass the Google lock in a few minutes without a computer.
After doing a hard reset via volume down and power button, my phone has landed on the Welcome Screen.
Let’s proceed further using the forward button.
Now, we need to connect to the internet via Wifi or Mobile data.
Hit “NEXT”, once you’re connected to the internet.
It’s checking for updates. We need to wait for a while.
Tap “Set up as new” to proceed further.
We are now on the screen lock verification page. I don’t remember the lock screen password. The alternate option is “USE MY GOOGLE ACCOUNT INSTEAD”. Let’s select this option.
It brings us to the Google Verification page. We need to sing-in using the last-synced Google account on this device.
Let’s use the latest 2021 hack to bypass the Google Lock screen on Rebel 4 in a few minutes –
How to bypass Google Lock/Verification on LG Rebel 4 without Computer – Tracfone lml212vl lml211bl (No Switch Access)
Let’s divide the complete process into 4 parts for better understanding –
STEP 1: Use another phone to lock a SIM card and insert this locked SIM in Rebel 4
We need to lock a SIM Card and use it in Rebel 4.
I’m using LG K40 and MetroPCS SIM for this purpose.
If using an LG phone, Open the Settings app and go to “Lock Screen and Security”.
Now, Scroll down and select “Set up SIM card lock”.
Tap “Lock SIM card” as shown above.
It’s asking for the current PIN. The default PIN for the MetroPCS SIM card is 1234
If using MetroPCS SIM, type 1234 and hit OK.
The SIM Card lock is enabled.
We need to insert this locked SIM into the Rebel 4 Sim Slot.
Remove the Rebel 4 battery door and insert the SIM as per the above picture.
STEP 2: Turn on Bluetooth and receive an Image file
Now, restart your phone using the power button on the back.
Long-Press the power button and select “Power off and restart”.
It’s asking for the SIM pin.
Enter the PIN 1234 and hit the tick icon as shown above.
Now, you see a “Not signed in” notification on the screen.
We need to swipe down the screen – starting from the “Not signed in” notification towards the bottom of the screen.
Follow the arrow marked in the above screenshot. Don’t swipe in the upward direction to unlock the screen.
If done correctly, you’ll see a row of quick access icons on the top. Long-Press the “Bluetooth icon” to open the Bluetooth page.
Turn on Bluetooth.
Now, use another phone to send an image file to Rebel 4.
Once again I’m using LG K40 to send a photo to Rebel 4.
Open the gallery app and open a picture.
Hit the “Share icon” to send this file.
Choose “Bluetooth” as the sharing medium.
Tap “TURN ON” to enable Bluetooth.
Now, select the Bluetooth device LML212VL. This is the model number of Rebel 4.
The image is being sent.
Hit “ACCEPT” on your Rebel 4 to receive this file.
Once the file is received, hit the “3 dots” icon at the top-right corner and select “Received files”.
Tap the image file to open it.
STEP 3: Set up a new Screen lock PIN, Pattern, or Password.
By default, it’s set to open with the Gallery app. We need to use the “Photos” app to open this file.
Double-tap “Photos” to open this picture.
Tap “ALLOW” to give access to the photos app.
Now, the screenshot file is open. Hit the “Share icon” as shown above.
Choose “Email” as the sharing medium.
Tap “ALLOW” twice to give access to the Email app.
We are now on the “Select email provider” page.
Select “Other” to move ahead.
Type any email address, just to highlight the “MANUAL SETUP” option.
Now, select “MANUAL SETUP”.
Select the account type as “Microsoft Exchange” and click “NEXT”.
This brings us to the “Server settings” page.
Scroll down to the bottom of the screen and click “Add”. We need to add a Client certificate.
A pop-up appears on the screen. It reads we need to change to a secure screen lock first. Tap “CHANGE” to accept the request.
We have reached the “Protect your phone” page.
Here we get to add a Pattern, PIN, or Password.
This new lock will replace the old screen lock.
Let’s set up an easy-to-remember PIN 1234.
Select “No thanks” on the “Secure Start-up” page and click “NEXT”.
Set a PIN and hit “NEXT”.
Re-enter the PIN and click “OK”. I’ve added 1234 as the screen PIN.
A confirmation text flashed on the screen – “Screen lock has been changed”.
We have successfully replaced the old screen lock with this new PIN. Let’s use it to bypass the Google lock.
Use the back button and keep going back.
STEP 4: Go back to the Welcome page and finish the Setup Wizard
Keep going back until you reach the “Welcome” screen.
Once again we are on the Welcome page.
Move ahead using the forward button.
Hit “NEXT” on the “Set Internet Connection” page.
Click “Set up as new” on the “Copy apps & data” page.
We’ve now reached the PIN verification page.
Verify with the PIN we added a few steps ago i.e. 1234
Type the PIN and hit “OK”.
The PIN verification was successful.
This time there is a “Skip” option on the Google Sign-in page.
You can either skip the Google account setup or add any Google account. The previously synced account is not needed.
Now, follow the on-screen prompts to keep moving ahead.
We need to tick the “I agree” checkbox on the “Legal documents” page.
Tick all the “I agree” checkboxes and tap “DONE” to finish the setup wizard.
We have successfully landed on the LG Rebel 4 home screen thus bypassing the Google lock.
