    This was posted yesterday by someone who also has just joined the forum and it was their first post. Hmmm! Interesting....
    sorry to hear, hope they're ok.



    As for lock patterns go....this is exactly why i don't use one. If you're that paranoid about someone seeing your phone, keep it in your pocket.

    exactly. that's what i say too. i don't take the chances with "pattern" locks. if it was a number that's a different story. plus, i'm a little paranoid after my blackberry. i don't know if droid does the same thing, but my blackberry used to wipe after 5 invalid attempts, and people would get my phone while i was in the other room or something, and try and try to get into it, and they ended up wiping my blackberry.

    the way i look at it, i don't care what i have on my phone. i'm not embarrassed by any of it. if you decide to be nosy and look through my stuff, don't get pissed at me if you see something you don't like.

    A reason to use the lock is that it's useless for any a-h that might have stolen it. No calls to Nigeria on THIS phone.

    You need to have adb installed and a hex editor or i guess something else to edit an sqlite3 database. i used HxD hex editor. I'm not going to link it for you or explain how to use adb. try the search feature or google is always your friend.

    *edit* I just realized you also have to already have previously enabled USB Debugging or this will not work...

    **edit to the edit** if you're running a custom recovery other than stock this fix will also work from the recovery console if you mount system and data

    onto the goods...

    connect your phone via usb to your computer

    1. open a command prompt in your tools folder

    2. do an:
    Code:
    adb pull data/data/com.android.providers.settings/databases/settings.db settings.db
    3. open the settings.db file that you just pulled in your hex editor or other sqlite database editing program and search for the following...

    Code:
    lockscreen.lockedoutpermanently1
    4. change the 1 to a zero so it looks like this:

    Code:
    lockscreen.lockedoutpermanently0
    5. resave the setting.db file and push it back to your phone using:
    Code:
    adb push settings.db data/data/com.android.providers.settings/databases/settings.db
    6. reboot the phone and you're in.

    Iif anyone wants to do a full writeup of this (Matth3w?) or needs more help, feel free to PM me

    Just had to do this with android 2.2.
    1. I pulled settings.db from the phone.
    2. Using a windows pc I download a program called razorSQL.
    3. With the razorsql program I connected to the settings.db database.
    4. select * from secure you will see an entry "lock_pattern_autolock".
    5. using the built in editor I changed the value from 1 to 0
    6. pushed the settings.db database i was editing back to data/data/com.android.providers.settings/databases/settings.db
    7. rebooted the phone phone and the lock screen was gone.

    Nice work jlutz555 thanks for the tip
