Your Note 5 FRP Bypass
And now it’s time to get started on bypassing the FRP.
First, you want to boot up your computer and download the APK file via your OTG. Then plug your flash drive into your computer and copy the file to your root directory. It’s essential that you don’t place it in any other folders, and let this file go directly to the root directory.
Now plug your OTG into your phone, and connect the flash drive at the other end of the cable. Your Galaxy Note 5 will launch the file explorer and will take you to the root directory of the flash drive.
Then select the APK file, and wait for a system dialog box that will pop up warning you that it blocks the sideloading of apps by default. Select Settings, then select Unknown Sources, and select “okay.” After that, you should be able to go on with the installation of the APK file.
After the installation is complete, tap Open. You should now be at a settings menu. You can now unplug the OTG cable from your phone and should be able to proceed with the factory reset. And with that, you have access to your phone again!
