We recently covered iMobie’s DroidKit, an app designed to bypass Android’s factory reset protection to help recover phones with locked Google accounts. That, and a host of other solutions.

Indeed, DroidKit is designed to provide Android users with help with issues such as screen unlock, FRP bypass, data recovery, system repair, and more. In this article, we will dig deeper into the desktop app and how it works step by step.

Go to iMobie

First, you need to download the desktop app from iMobie. DroidKit is available in both Windows and Mac formats. Follow your operating system’s normal processes to add the application to your machine should then be used to install DroidKit.

Once the installation is complete, launch DroidKit. Here you will be greeted with the initial app homepage. There are many options to choose from, but here we want the bottom left PRF Bypass option.

Recovery mode is needed

Once the wizard for FRP appears, we just need to follow. iMobie has done a great job here making this informative and well presented for users. You can’t really mess this up if you follow the steps, but we’ll describe them as well below.

Your first screen gives you basic statements of supported devices and what to expect. You must then plug in your Samsung device you need to be modified. If your phone is not detected, DroidKit will let you know.

Next, the software suite will create a configuration file specific to your handset. It might take a minute, but there’s a nifty progress bar to indicate the situation. Once the configuration file is created, a confirmation pop-up will appear and press Start to continue.

This is the most complicated step of the whole bypass. Now you have to manually put your Samsung in recovery mode. First, you are going to turn off the phone completely. Then, using the appropriate key combination while turning it back on, you should access this hidden Android menu. Recovery mode keybindings are slightly different depending on the device, but DroidKit breaks it down in the top tabs of this app page.

Wiping and bypassing are next

DroidKit has taken you to the Android Recovery Mode hidden menu and will now need a full device wipe. From the Recovery menu, choose Wipe Cache Partition and select the option by pressing the Power button.

This will completely reset and delete all data from your phone. I repeat, this will completely erase and reformat the phone. The reset will take a few minutes, but once the process is complete, you’ll be ready to move forward with the workaround.

The DroidKit wizard will again guide you through the next steps on how to locate and identify the Android version your phone is currently using. Once this is designated, click on the “Download Now” button to start the bypass process.

The last step is to connect your phone via USB to your PC if you haven’t already. You will then be prompted to wipe the cache partition via the recovery menu and reboot. On reboot, follow the screens on DroidKit to start the first launch process on your Samsung device.

Finally, you will click the “Send Notification” button on DroidKit. A pop-up window will ask for your confirmation and press “Yes”. This will send your Samsung

device directly from the Google Play Store to download an app called Alliance Shield X. Follow the remaining steps in the DroidKit app to complete the bypass.

Do!

That’s it, friends. After following all these steps, you should be able to bypass factory reset protection on most Samsung devices. Note that we don’t support anyone using it for devices they don’t currently own. This tool is intended as a last-ditch effort to recover a device in your possession.
