Today I was trying to set an unlock password without success... when I'm on settings and I wrote the selected password for the 2nd time the phone freeze and after 30 second the sd is unmounted and the phone has not password 4 unlock... I have tried all the option to protect my phone but always freeze and sd unmount... so I can set only swipe to unlock or the "nothing" option...
Anyone can help me?

well that mite be the problem.

you need to update to latest bootloader and modem.. at your own risk as i am not sure if it can be downgraded or not

but i have come across similar issues when using newer roms on older versions of bootloader and modem and the pin lock does not work

before doing anything make sure you have ur brick image, backup of ur rom, and efs partitions,


and as i said do it at your own risk..

are you rooted ? knox ??

well there is no risk ..if you do it properly...but as i said its always good to have backups.. and your brick image on external sd card
its just that some ppl ..i have no idea why .. always want to downgrade to old bootloaders.. if you are not one of them.. then i would say go for it

Man thank you for the help! I have updated modem and bootloader and I think that the problem was the modem... because i have flashed first the new BL and the problem was the same... next with the flash of the modem all works fine!

So problem solved! thank you again!
