How to bypass the lock screen on Alcatel Joytab 2 /Forgot Password, PIN, Pattern/Locked Out/Hard Factory Reset without Password
I forgot the lock screen password on my Alcatel Joytab 2. Unfortunately, the only way to bypass the lock screen is through a hard factory reset.
In this process, we lose internal storage data including photos, videos, apps & other files.
To enter Recovery mode, let’s power off the device.
Once the phone is off, press and hold the volume up & power keys.
As soon as the “Alcatel” logo appears on the screen, release both keys.
We are now on the “Android Recovery” screen. In this mode, touch doesn’t work.
Press the volume key to move down from “Reboot system now” to “Wipe data/Factory Reset”.
Now, tap the power button once.
Again move down from “Cancel” to “Factory data reset”. Hit the power button to begin the factory data reset.
After the data wipe, again press the power key to reboot your device.
This process takes a few minutes.
After the reset, it brings me to the “Hi There” screen of the setup wizard.
Let’s tap “START” to begin the setup.
Now, connect your device to a Wifi network.
After a few minutes, we reach the “Copy apps & data” screen. Tap “Don’t copy” to move ahead.
Now, I’m stuck on the “Verify Password” screen. There is an alternate option – “Use my Google account instead”.
Sign in to your previously synced Google account and follow the on-screen prompts to reach the home screen.
In case, you do not remember the Google account details, follow the below hack to bypass the FRP lock on Alcatel Joytab 2 –

To bypass the Google verification, move 2 steps back from the “Verify your account” screen to the “Connect to Wifi” page.
Now, choose the last option – “+ See all Wifi networks”.
On the next page click on “+ Add new network”.
This will bring out the keyboard on the screen.
Now, hit the microphone icon as shown above.
A window appears on the screen – “Allow Gboard to record Audio?”. Choose “DENY”.
Again hit the mic and this time click on “DENY & DON”T ASK AGAIN”.
The 3rd time when you click the mic there is a new option – “ALLOW” at the bottom. Click on it.
It brings me to the “App Info” screen. Click on “Permissions” to reach the “App Permissions” page.
Now, hit the search button on the top.
Type settings in the search box.
When the results appear, scroll down to the bottom.
Look for “Settings – App Info” and click on it.
When you reach the “App Info” screen, hit “OPEN” to enter the Settings app.
Now, go to “Apps & notifications” > “SEE ALL 35 APPS”.
All the apps are listed on the “App Info” screen. We need to disable 2 apps.
First, click on “Android Setup”.
Hit the “FORCE STOP” button to stop this app.
Then open “Google Play Services” and hit the “DISABLE” option.
After stopping the 2 apps, go 2 steps back.
Go 2 steps back to reach the Settings page.
Now, click on “Accessibility” > “Accessibility Menu”.
Enable the accessibility menu shortcut as shown above.
The shortcut button is created. We will use it in the next step.
Now, hit the back button multiple times to reach the first page.
We are again on the “Hi There” screen.
Click the accessibility menu shortcut. When the menu appears click on “ASSISTANT”.
It fails to open “ASSISTANT” and shows an error – “Google Play Services Required”.
Hit “Settings” to move ahead.
Now, enable “Google Play Services” with the “ENABLE” button.
After turning on Google Play Services again move back to the first page.
We are now on the “Hi There” screen. Hit “START” to proceed.
When you reach the “Copy apps & data” screen, click the back button once.
This will bring you to the previous page i.e. “Connect to Wifi”.
On the Wifi screen, click on “Set up offline” then “CONTINUE”.
We have bypassed the Google account verification.
Hit the “Accept” button on the Google services screen.
The next page is “Set screen lock”.
Skip the screen lock setup as shown above.
Follow the on-screen prompts and keep moving ahead.
Finally hit “FINISH” to complete the setup wizard.
We have successfully landed on the Alcatel Joytab 2 home screen thus bypassing the lock screen.
Now, open Settings to disable the accessibility menu shortcut.
Go to “Accessibility” > “Accessibility Menu”.
Turn off the shortcut as shown above.
