Before Android 5.0 (Lollipop), doing a factory reset on your Android phone would restore it to its original state like it was brand new. From Lollipop, doing a factory reset in recovery (when the device is still associated with a Google account) still requires that you supply the credentials of the Google account associated with the device before the factory reset was done. This is called Factory Reset Protection (FRP), a security / anti-theft feature.
If you find yourself locked out of your phone after a factory reset then this guide will come in handy.

How to remove / bypass Factory Reset Protection (FRP) on an MTK phone



Method 1: Setup selection


During setup (using the setup wizard), do not connect to a Wi-Fi network. Also, untick "Protect this device"

Method 3: Miracle Box method


Follow the method @ https://forum.hovatek.com/thread-13335.html ; In step 5, select Clear Settings/Frp

How do I avoid the stress of factory reset protection when I need to do a factory reset


Navigate to Settings > Accounts and delete / sign out of the Google account associated with the device

Please help! My Gionee M5 refused to boot afterwards. I did it with Method 3 (Miracle Box). It also nolonger recognizes USB, neither charging with AC or computer. On long press of the power button for 10s, the boot screen comes on and quickly off. Please help, I'm stranded!

Battery must've gotten drained.
No need to panic, leave to charge

Oh, battery wasn't—it was almost fully charged before I started. What happened was a brick of some sort. Well, I should have reported the issue FIXED, my bad. I resolved it same night. After scrambling for what seemed like agonizing years, I managed to get the USB detected (by holding down the power button for 7-8 secs). Once I discovered this, I proceeded to download the stock firmware (Indian though, will be glad to be pointed towards a Nigerian one) and flashed with SP. Problem solved.
