Pattern locked S3 need unlock/install cwm
long story short i have a Sprint galaxy s3 that is locked w a pattern lock and im unable to get in. i did ALOT of research and came across a few options but none work. one method says i should use adb to remove the lock ( http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1800799
) got stuck cause its not rooted and no custom recovery. i tried to flash CWM and root using this method (http://galaxys3root.com/galaxy-s3-ro...oofnoob-proof/
) odin said pass but i wasnt able to get into any custom recovery it would just hang when using the vol+ home power combination. stock recovery still works the same.
All i want to do is unlock this phone that has a pattern lock.Google account not an option.the owner passed away and im trying to unlock for her family to get contacts and internal photos etc. im not sure if usb debug is on however adb recognized the device so i assumed it was. the reason i guess im having a hard time is because not alot of information is available given the circumstances. Ive been reading for 7+ hours now afraid to ask for help as ppl always get flamed if there is already a solution somewhere. if there is i havent found it. Thanks for any help
