Default [Q] Help Bypassing Pattern Lock

Need a little help here. I have the AT&T HTC One, and I'm pattern locked out of it. I got in trouble and my parents "grounded" me for a month by changing the pattern. That way I can still receive calls but can't text or do anything else on the phone. Unfortunately my dad is pretty tech-savvy and also changed my Google account password, so I can't unlock it that way.

Is there any way that I can get in, or am I just locked out? Unfortunately USB debugging isn't turned on on the phone, so I haven't been able to ADB into it. I also need to get in without losing any of my data. If anyone can help please let me know.

LOL, that's what you get for being naughty.

only way to disable it is to go into the bootloader and factory reset, but that's going to wipe your data too, other than that, wait till your un-grounded and get the pattern off your dad.

Just flash another rom. Pictures music etc will be saved. You just lose the text messages and app data which isn't saved on the SD card partition. That's what I would do.

My Phone:
  • HTC One M7 801n
  • Rom: InsertCoin 6th Sense
  • Recovery: TWRP
  • Unlocked and S-OFF
Siemens A55 ---> Sony Ericsson W200i ---> Sony Ericsson W302i ---> Nokia N73 ---> Nokia 6600i ---> Samsung S5230 --->
iPhone 2g ---> HTC Dream/G1 ---> Samsung Omnia 7 ---> HTC HD2 ---> iPhone 4 ---> HTC One
every phone dreams of being unlocked
