Hi Good people.

Apologies if this has been covered before as I am a pretty busy guy and haven't had a lot of time to troubleshoot this problem.

A friend of mines kid was gifted this second hand tablet to mess around with and unfortunately after resetting it to factory I realised it was locked to an unknown Google account (see attached image). After some research I haven't been able to figure out to bypass this or completely "root" the device in order for him to make use of it.

I realise there a various softwares to use to accomplish this but a lot of attempts later (and malware installed) I am still making no headway.

Would any kind soul care to point me in the right direction?
