How to bypass FRP lock on your Samsung Galaxy Android Smartphone?

As I already mentioned we are using a different method here called the combination firmware because we have already explained the other method before.

Combination firmware is ".tar" format firmware file which has a pre-enabled usb debugging and OEM Unlock firmware that will enable you to flash with the official firmware later which ultimately remove the FRP lock. As you are already aware we need to enable the usb debugging mode and OEM unlocking before flashing any firmware. When your phone is in FRP lock you will not be able to do that so we are making this phone with the usb debugging and OEM unlocking enabled by flashing with the combination firmware first.

So lets go straight away to the steps now.

Steps to remove FRP lock on your Samsung Galaxy Android Smartphone using the Combination Firmware method

 1. First of all you need to download the combination firmware file corresponding to your device. As it is impractical to provide all the links for that please search in Google with your phone model and firmware version. For eg: If your phone is Galaxy S8 G950F and the firmware version you need is Pie 9.0. Search in Google like this "Galaxy S8 G950F Pie 9.0 Combination Firmware Download". The downloaded file will be in ".tar" format.

Now;

Once the Odin file is downloaded please extract it to your PC desktop and open the Odin.xx..exe file.

2. Now enter your Samsung Galaxy Android Smartphone into the "Download Mode". To enter into the download mode please switch of your phone and press and hold "Vol Down"+"Home"+"Power" buttons at the same time and press the "Vol Up" button when you get the warning screen to enter into the "Download Mode". The procedure for some phones are different so you try the below links for more detailed tutorial on download mode.

 3. Once in download mode connect your Galaxy Smartphone using the USB data cable. Once the connection is made successfully you will get an added message from the Odin app. If not please install/reinstall the Samsung USB drivers from the below link and try again.

 4. Now click on "AP/PDA" button in the "Odin" app and select the combination ".tar" firmware file that you have already downloaded before. Once the file is added to the Odin app please click the "Start" button in the Odin app. Now please wait for the flashing procedure to get finished and once done your Galaxy Smartphone will reboot and enter into a bootup screen like the one given below.

Now your phone's OEM unlock and usb debugging is enabled.

5. In the next step you need to download appropriate Samsung Galaxy Android Firmware from this link. Once downloaded please extract it to your PC desktop.

6. Now you need to switch off your Galaxy Smartphone first and enter it into the "Download Mode" again. You may follow the before said (Step 2) step to do that.

7. Now once in the download mode please reconnect your phone using the USB data cable while the Odin app is open and select the firmware files. You may click the "AP" button and select the appropriate file from the extracted firmware, same way click "BL", "CSC", "CP" and select the files. Once done click the "Start" button in the Odin app to start the flashing process.

Now wait for the flashing procedure to get finished. Once done and rebooted you are good to go and FRP lock on your Samsung Galaxy Android Smartphone will be successfully removed.

I have not been able to find the right Combination firmware ".tar" format firmware file which has a pre-enabled usb debugging and OEM Unlock firmware. I can only find the Single file that does not have USB Debugging and OEM unlock on it. It ends in HOME.tar.md5. Where can I find the file for step one above for the Samsung J7 (SM-J700T?

Hi
Samsung Galaxy Core Prime SN-G361F.
It seems that the Combination Firmware method is not working lnn this model.
After flashing the Lollipop Combination Firmware the FRP lock persists (visible on the recovery display).
Result is that subsequent flashing of Lollipop stock ROM fails..

Greetings

If you have used the correct combination file and selected each button except the "home" file for "UMS"/User Data then it should work.
