Forgot the answer to your security question or misplaced your Gmail password and you can’t get passed the pattern password on your Xperia Android phone? Don’t worry; here are two options on how to fix it.

1.

If your phone is asking you for your Gmail password to unlock the pattern password you can change your Gmail password according to the guide on www.gmail.com > “Can’t access your account”.

When you’ve changed the password you simply enter the new password in your phone to unlock it.
(Note that in order for this to work your phone needs to have a working Internet connection)

2.

If your phone is asking you to enter the answer to a set security question you will need to perform a software repair on the phone using PC Companion. Note by doing this the internal memory on the phone will also be reset.

Start by downloading and install PC Companion.
http://www.sonymobile.com/gb/tools/pc-companion/

In PC Companion go to Support Zone > Software update > Repair phone
(Do this while phone is not connected via USB)
Now follow on-screen instructions to repair the phone software.

There are many ways actually,I prefer more to back up my application first,and then I clear all the memory (dalvik,blah3) in CWM mode,and boot up and set up the phone again

If your phone isn't rooted you can't enter cwm, there is no recovery. Just connect it to flashtool and try repair options.

No, I noticed it, too. On sony roms it doesn't ask you for your google account, don't know why

I think we can enter cwm using:
Code:
fastboot -i 0xfce boot boot.img
without flashing the custom kernel.

I hope it helps.
