Arrow [RESOLVED] HELP please!! Unable to unlock device locked by Google Device Manager

Please help me, Ive just locked my phone with the official Google Device Manager. I'm trying to put the right password (Im sure, I changed the password for "1111" and phone recognized it was the PIN) but it gives me "wrong password" anyway.

I have stock Android unrooted, no debug enabled.

ADB commands give me just "error: closed"

"
adb shell
su
rm /data/system/cm_gesture.key
reboot
"

how to unlock the device, I really do not want to wipe the device!!

please help me

will CWM recovery help me ASAP?

please

thank you!!

so the BUG is "made by Samsung". Samsung just do not accept any correct PIN or password (maybe because of "wrong" keyboard).


could anyone tell me how to remove the lock without wipe?
thx


edit:

solution 1) just if you have debugging mode on then follow this solution
http://maxoberberger.net/blog/2013/0...ice-using-adb/

solution 2) just if you can change your keyboard for another (if you are allowed when entering password)

solution 3) just if you have Samsung account, log into Samsung Dive >> "unlock" (my case)

solution 4) no debuging mode + no keyboard solution + no samsung account? >> just and only wipe through recovery or Google Device Manager

Happy now, but I was lucky


SAMSUNG BUG in 100 %
