    So I've rooted my phone (samsung galaxy core prime) but if I add a google account, and if I turn off my phone it trips the frp lock. "custom binary blocked by frp lock".

    The only way to fix this is to flash the original firmware back on to the phone, which I did and then started the process of rooting again, except this time I haven't added my google account to be safe.

    is there any way to add a google account without also turning frp lock on? Thanks.

    why not just flash a custom rom? you should not have to worry about tripping frp.......just make sure to do a nandroid backup first.

    yeah i did try to flash lineage and cyanogenmod but it gave me an error. I dont think I had the right version for my phone, it was close but not close enough apparently.

    you have to be very careful.....each custom rom is device specific....you could easily soft brick or even hard brick your phone that way. what happens when you flashed lineage?

    it obviously failed when i tried to flash it so no harm done, I can't seem to find any custom roms for my specific model. even though the version of lineage I just tried to flash is supposedly (according to the site I got it from) for my exact model

    yeah i have that enabled. I don't really want to add my google account until i'm 100% sure frp lock isn't going to be a problem when I reboot the device.

    From what I gather you have the "SM-G361F Galaxy Core Prime VE"? Please confirm.

    There's an XDA thread with pre-rooted firmwares. You should have a look through the thread...
    https://forum.xda-developers.com/ga...re-rooted-firmwares-samsung-sm-g361f-t3207432

    Here's the main forum. Make sure to only flash stuff for your model number...

    no that's the device that the rom is for, my device is SM-G361F. That's what i searched for when looking for a rom for my phone and the site I got it labeled it as a rom for an SM-G361f when it's not.

    well this is not your exact model (SM-G361F).......it is for the one that it said in error (SM-G361H)....you have to be very careful and flash the rom for your specific model.....which is SM-G361F, correct? thats the rom you need to use. before you flash anything i would read up on the rom's thread to make sure that this is the right rom for your device.

    cool. see i have stock samsung firmware on the device and i flashed magisk using twrp to get root access. i think twrp is what's tripping the frp lock
     
  21. ocnbrze

    ocnbrze DON'T PANIC!!!!!!!!!

    its not twrp
    twrp does not trip frp....it is just a recovery.....granted a custom one.

    Looking through the XDA forum for this device it looks like it's a mess to root and get twrp. Nothing is clear and everything is scattered in different threads and posts.

    Also we asked you for your model number so that we can better assist you and you still have not posted it. Now I'm guessing your device is the "SM-G361F" because the error message says your device is "coreprimevelte", but you've yet to confirm.

    I can only guess that you perhaps flashed twrp from the wrong device. Visit the following link with threads for your model number and consider asking for assistance there since these folks have this device.
    https://forum.xda-developers.com/galaxy-core-prime/how-to

    Some advice for you going forward... If you like root then for your next device get yourself a Pixel or Motorola. These devices are easy to unlock the bootloader and root. Moto even tells you how to unlock the bootloader on their website and it's the same for Google devices(Pixel). If on a budget then the Moto G series is the way to go.

    Good luck.

    would flashing a modded version of gapps help in any way? was looking through a thread on xda with modded gapps but all the links were dead.
