    Forgot unlock pattern--help

    Newbie here, I can't unlock my phone now using the pattern. I did go in and enter my gmail account and password as instructed , but it tells me wrong password. I can get into my gmail account online with the identical login and info.

    Any suggestions other than go to the store for them to reset?

    call verizon and see if they can help, i did the same thing a few months ago and ended up having to do a factory reset. i didn't lose everything cause i regularly update everything to my SD card (make sure to remove card before you do this)
    Good Luck.

    dang, then you could have just restored a previous nandroid before you had the pattern. but since it isn't rooted then verizon should be able to help

    "need some help
    family friend with Droid is in hospital and family doesn't know how to get into device. my friend's son has since come forward to say he knows the pattern that unlocks phone however we got locked out and it will only accept gmail login which nobody knows.

    any thoughts how I can get back biometric / pattern recognition screen?

    Yeah, I used to have an unlock pattern that I switched weekly for "security." Then one day I forgot. Somehow I remembered but not after a lot of panic. Won't be doing that again.

    Too many pattern attempts <SOLVED!>

    I figured out how to fix this without having to do a reset or restore from any backup...

    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
