I have forgotten my lock screen pin password and so can't access my device.I have however found a method on XDA to bypass or remove the pin password (without wiping data) but that requires usb debugging enabled.Since i have usb debugging disabled and stock recovery with locked bootloader, is there anyway to enable usb debugging so that i can delete the .key via adb in command prompt?


here is the above method

"METHOD 2
Solution For Everyone Without Recovery Installed - ADB :

What You Need:
=>A computer running a Linux distro or Windows+Cygwin
=>USB cable to connect your phone to the PC
=>Adb installed

INSTRUCTIONS:
1. Connect you (turned on) Phone to the Computer via USB.
2. Open a terminal window.
3. Type:
Code:
adb devices
adb shell
cd data/system
su
rm *.key
4. Done...Now You Just Have To Reboot.

Note : If You See The Gesture Pattern Grid Or Password After Restarting, Don't Worry. Just Try Any Random Pattern Or Password And it Should Unlock."

Model : MOTO G (non GPE) with locked bootloader and stock recovery and rom.

If you forget your pin password the system will prompt you to insert your google email password to unlock the device so if you know or retrevie that you're good to go
