Since Google is blocked in China and a few other countries, the Checking network screen will stuck forever. Is there a way to skip this step?

    Apparently, from the tag you've used "hard-reset", you've restored your device to factory settings and haven't un-ticked the options "Backup my data" & "Automatic Restore", search with the keywords FRP Bypass for your device. – M. Abdelhafid Feb 18 '18 at 14:26
  • Refer to this answer of mine to set up a PC as a proxy server and connect the device to the proxy so it can pass the phase normally. What Abdelhafid said is true to an extent though - if setup wizard does not allow skipping network check, then the device likely has a Google account and you will need a FRP bypass. – Andy Yan Feb 18 '18 at 15:13
  • @AbdelhafidMadoui how would I install an APK if it doesn't let me go into the system? – Aero Windwalker Feb 18 '18 at 15:17
  • @AndyYan yes I've tried, yet I cannot get it work somehow. I don't think the phone recognizes the proxy setting... – Aero Windwalker Feb 18 '18 at 15:18
  • @AeroWindwalker That's the point of FRP bypassing procedures - there's often a device/version-specific way that allows you to temporarily access a part of the OS so you can install and run APKs. As for the proxy step, well if your PC isn't capable of penetrating the lockdown itself then the proxy will be useless. – Andy Yan Feb 19 '18 at 0:48
