Angry [ROOT] Easy way to recover your lost lockscreen pattern/password

Quote:
First, i dont mean to "teach" another to become a hacker or something bad. It is for the safety only. It is usefull if you forget the pattern/password lock

Someday ago, my uncle give his phone to me, and said that he forgot his lockscreen pattern. I guess it is easy for me to recover the lockscreen pattern by clicking on the "Forgot Pattern" button. But the hardest thing is that my uncle forgot his email account and his password, and he forget the answer of his secret question
But one thing i remember is that ive been using my uncle phone before, and ive checked the Debugging option on
So, i used my computer, and use the adb to recover my uncle's phone lockscreen. Its easy, because my uncle's phone is rooted, and thats why i defined [ROOT] in the title

I'm not taking any risks for what you will done with your phone. You should use this trick with your own risk, and dont blame me if its not worked. This is for educational purpose only, don't do this trick for opening your friend's phone.

You need to grant ADB Shell in superuser before you can use these trick


How to
:
1. First, connect your phone to your computer
2. Open up the terminal or Command Prompt
3. Use these command :
For Pattern lock :
Quote:
adb shell
su
rm /data/system/gesture.key
Or Password lock :
Quote:
adb shell
su
rm /data/system/password.key
4. Disconnect your phone. Suddenly the lockscreen will come up. Dont worry, you just need to enter any pattern to go on, then you can remove the pattern lock in setting

If you didn't have the adb installed on your computer, just download these attachment. Extract it, then just open the Command Prompt.bat / Command.shell, then enter those command
Another trick is by using AROMA File Manager. You should have recovery installed on your phone
It's same with installing Custom Rom, you just place the AROMA File Manager on your SDCard, then install it. The AROMA File Manager will come up, then you can delete the gesture.key/password.key file in the /data/system/ directory
