    try booting into safe mode and see if you can bypass the lock pattern screen. If you can great. Just change up the pattern again and you will be on your way. Never do that again : )

    To enter safe mode:
    1. Power off and remove battery,
    2. Insert Battery and power on. Hold the hardware menu key (the menu button on the Droid's physical keyboard) from the moment you press the power button until your home/lock screen is displayed (it should now have a small "Safe Mode" label in the bottom left corner)

    edit: restart phone to get out of safe mode after changing
