5a.) It will ask you to login and verify your login. If its your first time, enter a phone number to verify the account. If not the first time, read 5b
5b.) Wait for the timer to count down if you don’t see an email from Samsung to verify, and select Verify by Text Message at the bottom of the verification screen, then select Send Code Again and it will text it to you
- Once the apps are installed, open the web browser you selected and come to this page on your device.
- Download the SL5.apk from above and the Tecnocare.apk from above in the What You’ll Need section

- Go through the setup of SimpleLauncher, then open the Settings app
- Under Security, make sure Find My Device is disabled
- Open the Apps section, and search for Google Play services, select it and disable it
- Go back to the launcher screen and open any file explorer app (my files from SL is fine, allow it to view files)
- Select TecnoCare.apk and install it, then open the app when complete.
- At the bottom of TecnoCare when its open, select Continue. The app may force close or tell you it isn’t compatible. Ignore this and simply go back to the launcher screen
- Open the Settings app again, making sure Find My Device is disabled/gone and that anything else is disabled under Security
- From there, scroll down again to Accounts and backup, and add your personal google account
- Once the account is added, open the Apps section and enable Google Play services again
- Restart the device so you’re back into the setup screen
- Go through setup as normal, it will detect an account is already logged in and allow you to continue the setup process to a normal tablet!
