locksettings.db-* is simply information for what type of lockscreen, it sadly does not hold the value for the lock pin/password you set.
gesture.key does hold the pattern you selected.
sparepassword.key holds the pin you chose for your backup pin from the pattern.
settings.db is just a database for the general settings
I cannot for the life of me figure out where the "password.key" file is. I think Samsung changed this location. But according to the source code, it should be the same location. -.-
System property, security.mdpp needs to be set to "None" in order for it to use the standard path. I'm not sure where its putting it if that is set to Ready. The smali is hard to follow. But i got it working properly now Thanks!
