Google Authenticator Fail!

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So today i decided to upadte my Nexus 4 from 4.2.2 to 4.4. I was rooted and a regular 4.3 update failed everytime due to some unknown issue. So i wiped it and flashed the android stock ROM.

Now i want to get into my device, root it and put back some stuff before i go to 4.4.


The problem is, that i can't log in to my Google account because i have two step authentication enabled. So i have to use the google authenticator app for login, which i can't install because i am not logged in. WTF, GOOGLE?! :D


Using one of my phone numbers to send the authentification Code doesn't work either. I don't recieve any SMS.


What now? :D

who cares...

When you "signed-up" for 2-way-protection (Google Authentication) you received a pdf with 10 nummers you can use when you don't have mobile access or like you don't have the app.

You can get more numbers from here:




That was easy. :D


Thank you. :)

Can't you disable the two step thing?


EDIT: Nevermind, already fixed it.

I don't always have time to study, but when I do, I don't.
