My college roommate has a Verizon Moto X, and long story short, he wasn't doing homework and was doing stupid stuff on his phone, so I took it and made a pattern lock for him. I didn't know he was going to try to figure it out, and he wound up trying to unlock it 10 times. After the tenth time, with no prior warning, the phone rebooted. It then proceeded to try to erase his phone. I turned it off and it keeps trying to erase it. I got into the bootloader by holding power and volume down, but is there any way to fix this? I don't think the phone has erased yet, but we're trying to get it to actually boot up. Please help me out if you know a solution. We may have to just let it erase but I really hope we don't have to do that.

Thanks a ton!!!!

EDIT So it just rebooted and it's all gone. Any way to fix it?!?!
Its gone.....

Good chance all your data will be gone tho. That's just how its made to work. I'd never use these unlock things. My kids would definitely mess my phone up. I just don't keep anything sensitive on my phone.

I had no clue that if you entered incorrect info 10 times it would factory reset your phone. Is that automatic or is that just an option?

Automatic. Doesn't do that on my Galaxy S4 though.
