    Exclamation Help! Unable to get into my phone! :(

    Hey guys! I'm in a real mess now...
    My phone has gone into lockdown because the pattern was drawn wrong to many times.
    And I know! you're supposed to be able to unlock the phone using your google account.
    But that doesn't work either! Even though I'm a hundred percent sure I'm typing everything
    correctly... It might be because I left wi-fi and any other means of reaching the internet
    off. I knooow! So dumb! Can't really sync it to my pc as it seems to be in charging mode...
    And ofcourse soft reset doesn't work! > Is there any way to override the lock function?
    I really don't want to wipe the memory with the factory reset... Any answers are appreciated!
    Thank you! :'(

    A factory reset is the only option. It won't touch your external sd card. It'll just wipe the internal.

    If you can get into recovery you can do a FDR (factory data reset) you will lose how you have your phone set up but it will clear out that lock. As far as I know that is the only way.

    Okay... Thank's for the quick responses, guys! I guess I'll just wipe it then. :/
    There probably wasn't anything important on the internal storage anyway...
    Thanks again!

    Have you tried booting into Safe mode and THEN doing the Google unlock through the USB connection?

    Accessing safe mode on your Razr...

    Son of a snitch!! I can't get my pc to recognize my cellphone via usb! Do you know what i mean? When you plug your phone in via usb and you get to choose between charging, being recognized as a memory unit and as an actual phone

    This is why I always allow bluetooth hands free command bypass jic. Try rebooting the phone into safe mode then connect usb. Rebooting with it plugged in May have driver issues.
