Default [SOLVED] I removed the default screen lock application and now I can't unlock screen

Hello.

I used an application called App Master(Uninstall Master) to uninstall the application called "default lock screen" (I can't remember the name exactly).

The screen is still getting locked, but now I can't unlock it. No ring to drag. Feel free to call me dumb.

My android version is 2.3.
Phone: HTC Desire HD.

I tried to change the lock method.
Code:
adb shell
cd /data/data/com.android.providers.settings/databases
sqlite3 settings.db
update system set value=0 where name='lock_pattern_autolock';
update system set value=0 where name='lockscreen.lockedoutpermanently';
.quit
But can't find those records in my settings.db.

The application (App/Uninstall Master) has a "recycle bin" option to restore the removed applications. Maybe if someone knows how to do so with adb...

Please, help me.

Thanks for caring.

OK, I remembered that my "clock alarm" application unlocks the phone when it rings. I managed to set an alarm and it unlocked the phone.

Never so happy to hear the alarm clock.
