I was given 2 used 7" RCA model RCT6873W42 Android tablets. The batterys on both tablets are charged up and the tablets turn on. The last owner didn't do the "wipe data/factory reset" in the right order. They didn't remove the last Gmail account that the tablets were sync to before doing the factory reset. And I keep running into a roadblock on both tablets when I get to the point in the set up were it asks for my Google email address. See the screen capture. I did the "wipe data/factory reset" 2 times. No change. I don't know how to bypass the "Factory Reset Protection" and I can't get the last owner's email address and password in order to open up the tablets. Is there a way to around the "Factory Reset Protection"?


Update I now have what the eBay seller calls an "OEM MICRO USB male to female USB OTG Host Adapter For a RCA Voyager RCT6873W42 Tablet". I must be doing something wrong in trying to get the tablet to see the prog "Bypass any Samsung Google Account Lock.apk" or I am using the wrong APK prog.

Also I have found that I have full access via a back door to all non rooted files and directory's in the tablet via the USB cable when connected to my Windows laptop. What I can do with that back door, I don't know. But I can read and write to the tablets. I also have ADB/Fastload for windows. I have used ADB/Fastload to root a cell phone and a tablet before. But that cell phone and tablet didn't have FRP installed in them. They were older OS's.

  • The post [How to bypass "Verify your account" (Factory Reset Protection) by Andy Yan] is for a Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge cell phone. What I have are tablets. These tablets CAN NOT be used to make calls even to 911 – user187393 Dec 18 '17 at 8:44

    Did you read through all the methods? Not all methods necessitate a dialer. Also, that post is a general pointer to this type of question - to prevent being flagged as a duplicate of it, try the solutions posted in there and edit your question to reflect how they wouldn't work. – Andy Yan Dec 18 '17 at 9:09

Have you tried removing their Google account in settings?

To remove a Google account, go to settings, then either Google (Or accounts). If prompted, tap the account name. Tap MORE. Tap Remove account. Tap REMOVE ACCOUNT to confirm.

If they have a passcode or screen pattern then you'll have to find a way around it. But if not then that should help.

    FRP happens in Setup Wizard where you wouldn't have access to Settings or any other app (unless worked around by an exploit - but then again you still need the original account's password to be able to remove it). – Andy Yan Dec 19 '17 at 1:30

    I don't have access to the "original Gmail account that the tablets were sync to" And I have to wait for payday to buy a USB-OTG cable. – user187393 Dec 20 '17 at 3:44
  • I got the USB-OTG cable. The tablets won't see the USB-OTG cable. I am about ready to take these tablets out for TP – user187393 Jan 16 '18 at 5:09
