If Samsung Dive Doesn't Work

If you haven't set up Samsung account on your phone then Samsung Dive will not work. There is only one way left to hard reset the phone in recovery mode. Do as follows.
  • Switch off the phone.
  • Reboot in recovery mode by pressing 'Home', 'Volume up' and 'Power' button at the same time. Release the buttons when phone vibrates.
  • Now move down by Volume down key and select 'Wipe Cache Partition'. Then go back to main menu.
  • Then select 'Wipe data/Factory reset'
  • This will remove the pattern lock. Also there is some chance that you would not lose any data stored on the internal phone's storage if your phone is running on android 2.3 gingerbread if you first 'Wipe cache partition' before 'Factory reset'.

Warning: If you are going to hard reset the phone then make sure that you know the details of the Google account being used and synced on your phone. Do not hard reset if you don't know the password of your Google account. Because if you hard reset your Samsung phone then 'Factory Reset Protection' will be automatically activated on your phone. After that you will not be able to login in to your phone for 24 hours. You can only unlock the phone with the previously synced Google account. Read more about 'Factory Reset Protection'.

    1. Hello, factory reset your phone in recovery mode. Switch it off first then press power+home+volume up button at the same time. Here you will see 'Wipe data/Factory reset'. Use volume buttons to move up and down and use home button to select an option.

      FRP has nothing to do with s duos 3 and twrp is custom recovery for android phone.
