I would still like to use pattern lock for my M8 but I am having trouble as my phone keep factory reset after several accidental attempt to unlock while am having it in my pocket? Is there anyway to disable this? Thanks

/system/customize/ACC/default.xml
change this:

Code:
  <item type="integer" name="devicepolicy_max_fail_passwords_for_wipe">10</item>
to this
Code:
  <item type="integer" name="devicepolicy_max_fail_passwords_for_wipe">0</item>

Will this problem occurs if I use a flip case such as the dot view case? As the pattern unlock screen shouldn't be on when the cover is close right?

Thanks

I have the dot view. The pattern lock doesn't come on until the cover is flipped over. When it is closed, you can double tap to check some notifications like call log and texts, but that's it.
