How to reset Oneplus Nord N100 without Password, PIN, Pattern – Hard Factory Reset with Buttons
I’m stuck on the OnePlus Nord N100 lock screen. I don’t remember the lock screen password.
To bypass the lock screen we need to hard reset the phone via recovery mode. Unfortunately, it’s not possible to bypass the password lock without a reset.
To hard reset N100, we need to put it into recovery mode.
Long-press the power button and tap “Power Off” to turn off the phone.
Once the phone is off, press the volume down + power keys to turn on the phone.
When the 1+ logo shows up, release both the buttons.
We are now in recovery mode.
Tap the “Forgot Password” option as shown above.
This will bring you to the warning screen – “You will LOSE everything(Music, pics, etc).
Click “Ok” to proceed further.
There is one more step to reset the phone.
Hit “Ok” to wipe the phone to the factory state.
The factory reset will take a few minutes.
Afterward, we reach the “Hello” screen of the setup wizard.
Tap the “Start” button to begin the device setup.
Agree to the Oneplus terms and conditions.
In the next step, connect your phone to a Wifi network.
After getting connected, the phone is checking for updates, we need to wait for a while.
When you reach the “Copy apps & data” screen, choose “Don’t copy”.
This time we are on the “Verify Password” page. I don’t remember the password. I’ll choose the alternate option – “Use my Google account instead”.
This brings us to the Google verification page. As the device was reset using volume down & power keys, we need to verify with the previously synced Google account.
Enter your Google account credentials and follow the on-screen prompts to reach the One Plus Nord N100 home screen.
If you don’t remember the Google account details, follow the below hack to bypass the FRP lock as follows –
