After the process has completed, the device restart on its own. Instead of Google credentials and language it ask to “confirm password”
I turned off my phone and enter into recovery mode by holding the Volume Up + OK buttons while pressing the Power button.it again got the same screen “confirm password”I forgot my google password what should i do i cant get it to recovery mode.pls help.
Try to log in in your Gmail on you’re PC. Try every code you ever used. If you find the code, try that code again for you’re Google-account and write the code down and never lose it. You’re Gmail code is the same as you’re Google-account.
Thanks for the tutorial,
