A5 2016

I hacked this device. This is a Samsung Galaxy A5 2016

As shown in the downloading screen the device is Factory Protection Lock (FRP)

How i did to bypass the Google Lock Screen by downgrading the firmware from Android 7.0 to Android 6.0

While flashing the Android 6.0 firmware it keeps failing at hidden.img
I was smart enough to know that Samsung has patched that. So i did some modifying of the hidden.img file

In the end i successfully downgraded it to Android 6.0 and than use some software to add my Google Account into the phone

This is a successful project where it has been unlocked
