He has a Samsung Captivate that he has "retired" and I'm interested in buying it for a few purposes. Unfortunately, he let his (adult) son play with it and the lock screen pattern is set. He doesn't know the pattern or the google account password associated with the account on the device. (When he upgraded and moved out of the device he had to create a new google account.)
He wants to look into the device one more before he turns it over to me. (I will wipe it and root it for my purposes.) Is there a way to get past the lock screen without the complete reset in recovery?
