I was just trying to flash Lineage OS on my new Redmi Note 7, since MIUI kinda sucks, and it didn't really seem to work. So after a few tries and restarts, my phone started requesting the password for an email address I entered into my lock screen when I first got the phone, in case I'd ever lose it and someone would find the person could message me. But as it turns out, the m in my email address' .com is missing and the phone keeps asking for the email's password to start Android instead of the usual PIN code.
I figured I should just try wiping it completely, but after a lot of wasted time and energy, I still haven't found a method to factory reset it. Please help, I know this is a very specific issue, but maybe there is someone here who could just help me out.
