Hi! I have an (annoying) situation here, i recently bought a phone (bottom), the phone has been wiped of all apps, however, the last person (the seller) didn't do a FULL factory reset, so his Google account is still the primary.

I know you can remove the primary account via factory reset, but there seems to some sort of PIN/password, you dont need a pin/password to unlock the phone (from sleep), the screen asking for a pin also popes up when i tried to apply a lockscreen password
Ive emailed the seller already, but he takes a long time to respond, and i hate to wait.

i know theres specialized hardware like Riff-Box, but this phones waterproof and i dont want to break any seals :P
Ive also tried to do a root, but kentai/japanese phones have tight security with a small amount of hackers (link to root bellow)



Anyway, my question is that is there anyway to get that pin out of the phone/disable/remove it WITHOUT rooting or cracking the case open

eg software hacks

ive already tried the ADB methods, which require a root, and i have a copy of SDK with proper ADB drivers if anyone has any complex suggestions

Phone
-Sharp SH-06D [normal, NOT the NERV edition]
-internationally unlocked by DoCoMo
-running an unrooted 2.3.5 and (obviously) stock ROM

FYI i have full acess to everything except the reset, password, and superuser/SU
