    Try holding volume down and the power button while the phone is completely. Off. Should let you boot into recovery to do an fdr

    Try this

    Method 1: Flashing zip file from your recovery

    Will work on: All Rooted Devices, a custom recovery like clockworkmod recovery may or may not be required. Occasionally might work on some non-rooted devices too.

    How to use:
    Transfer update.zip file to your external sd card. Of course, as you are locked out of your device, you will be required to have a card reader to transfer this file to your sd card externally. Then reboot your device into recovery.
    Booting in your recovery:
    Switch off your device.
    Then along with your power button, press volume up and Home button and keep holding this combination unless your phone boots up. (This combination varies from phone to phone. It can be Power + Vol. Up or Power + Vol Down or Power + Vol Up + Vol Down or Power + Home + Volume Down. Try all the permutations and combinations. If this doesn't work out, google this "your_device_name recovery key combination" and in pretty much all circumstances, you should get the button combination for your device.)
    Generally in all recoveries, normal touch commands don't work. Use Volume up and Volume down to scroll and use power/home button to select the highlighted option

    When you are in your phone's recovery, go to install zip from sd card (or install update.zip from sd card or any other similar option, depends on recovery) and if it asks you to select the file, select the update.zip file you had copied to your device. If installation is successful, then reboot your device. Otherwise, reboot your device :ugeek:
    If the zip file had flashed successfully, you should get no lock screen now and your phone should unlock without asking for any password.

    How it works:
    After you boot in to recovery, flashing this zip removes the Gesture.key and Password.key file. When your phone reboots and sees that those two files are empty, it thinks that no password/pattern protection has been applied and unlocks normally.

    Pro Tip: If your device doesn't have an external sd card slot, then the only way through which you can push this zip file to your phone's internal sd card is by adb. Use this guide to set up adb on your device. To use adb, USB Debugging must be enabled on your device, if you hadn't enabled it earlier, sorry but there's nothing you can do now. Once you have set up adb for your device, give the command "adb push update.zip /sdcard/". Replace sdcard with the location where your device's internal sd card is present In most device it will be the same as /sdcard. If it isn't ask anyone with your device to check out the location for you.

    Method 2: Using Screen Lock Bypass

    Will work on:
    All Android devices running Android 2.3.x or below. No matter whether rooted or not.

    How to Use:
    Extract gingerbread_lock_bypass_droidiser.zip file anywhere on your PC.
    Install drivers for your phone using pdanet.
    Connect your device to the pc using USB cable.
    Go to the extracted folder.
    Run the Double_Click_Me.bat file and enter 1 to continue in the command window.
    Try unlocking your device now. The screen lock will be bypassed.

    How this works:
    I saw this article on lifehacker. The article says that installing Screen Lock Bypass app from the web version of the Android Market (now called Play Store) followed by installing any other application from the play store itself will bypass the lock screen for you. As of now, the free version of this app has been removed from the Play Store at least I couldn't find it. I searched the internet for the apk of the free version of that file (you know, we hate piracy as much as the developers do :geek: ) and using the adb interface to install the Screen Lock Bypass app followed by another lightweight app (Marine compass in this case, chosen because it's just 14 kilobytes). That's it. This bypasses the screen lock everytime you press the unlock button on your device. To know how that app works, see this.

    Pro Tip:
    You won't have to enter your password/gesture as long as this app is installed on your device. The moment you uninstall it, you will have to enter your old password, which you have forgotten. So, either don't uninstall this app ever and use another lock screen replacement from the play store. Or backup anything you might want to, contacts, sms, call log or whatever (backing up apps with data require you to have android 4 and above, which in this case you can't have because this method works only on gingerbread and below) and factory reset your device. Or root your device and go to /data/system/ using any file manager and delete the files named gesture.key and password.key from there and you won't have to backup anything nor a factory reset will be required.

    Method 3: Use adb to permanently remove the current password

    Will work on:
    All Android devices that are rooted. But adb must be given root access. If you get permission denied error, then boot into recovery (to know how to do that, read instructions in first method.) and then try running this tool.

    How to Use:
    Extract Reset Password Tool by Droidiser.zip file anywhere on your PC.
    Install drivers for your phone using pdanet.
    Connect your device to the pc using USB cable.
    Go to the extracted folder.
    Run the Double_Click_Me.bat file and enter 1 to continue in the command window.
    Try unlocking your device now. Any password/pin/gesture that had been currently stopping you from having access to your device have been cleared.

    The Failsafe Methods:
    As you can see,I couldn't get any method to work on non-rooted Android 4.0 and above devices. While some devices will work with the first method, a lot of them won't. I am writing two failsafe methods that you can use to regain access to your locked Android device. Another alternative can be rooting your android device and then use the method for rooted Android devices. Most Android devices can be rooted without you needing to have the device unlocked in the process. Otherwise, the failsafe methods are always there :)

    Failsafe Method 1 (paid): Use Screen Lock Bypass Pro
    If you really don't want to loose your data and have an android device that runs on Ice Cream Sandwich or below, you can buy this app from the play store and reset your password. This device doesn't require your phone to be rooted but Jelly Bean and above devices are sadly not supported. After you install this app (use the web version of play store), plug your phone to a charger and then a screen will pop up asking you to set Screen Lock Bypass Pro as device administrator, select Activate at that screen and then you can reset your device.

    Failsafe Method 2: Reset your android device :cry:
    If none of the above things worked for you, then sadly only the official method can help you out. You have to factory reset device. This can be done by booting in to your recovery and selecting the Wipe Data/Factory Reset option. To know how you can boot into your recovery, see the details in the first method.



    One of these methods should be able help you with your problem.

    I hope this helps
