I just bought a Huawei Mate 8 and I can't set it up due to the Google account verification in the setup process. I've messaged the seller asking for the account details but he doesn't know. I don't have an OTG cable or USB and I need a way to get past this so I can do a full reset of the phone. Please help! (This is different to the other questions as the factory reset option still leaves me with the same problem with FRP and I can't use ADB because I can't enable USB debugging)
Pretty much every phone can do factory reset while turned off, try this:
- Turn off the Mate.
- Press and hold at the same time: Volume Up + Home button + Power button, until you see Huawei logo.
- Then select from Recovery Mode menu “wipe data / factory reset” using Volume buttons to navigate and Power button to confirm.
- Select “Yes — delete all user data” to confirm the whole operation.
- After that select option “reboot system now”.
