I've deleted all the files but I still get the pattern popup at boot time. Is there a way to disable it without flashing over the ROM (RR 7.1.2)?

Requirements
-----------------



1. A phone That cant be unlocked witha your Pin/Pattern
2.Any custom recovery installed(TWRP i will say)..Get TWRP from https://twrp.me/Devices/




Steps
-------



1.Once You installed twrp boot into recovery mode.
2.Go to advanced>filemanager to acces the files in your phone.

3.Ggo to the /data/system folder. Scroll down and find the two files with the .key extension. Delete both of them (by tapping on the file and then tapping the �Delete� button). Then, delete all the files containing the word locksettings.
  • password.key
  • pattern.key
  • locksettings.db
  • locksettings.db-shm
  • locksettings.db-wal

Once you�ve deleted all the key and locksettings files, reboot your system. If it asks you to install SuperSU, choose �Do Not Install�.

Once Android starts, your lock screen should appear, with no PIN or password prompt. Unlock your phone (yay!) and head to Android�s Settings. Scroll down and go to Security > Screen Lock. From there, you can choose a new PIN or password to lock your phone.


Hope this helped you..Hot Thanks if this was helpful

adithyan25, thanks a ton! My google search on how to unlock pin through custom recovery brought me to your link and I managed to avoid a factory reset. The unfortunate part is that I had done a complete TWRP backup before trying some other stuff and when I restored the backup it was not accepting my original PIN. I wonder why that happened in the first place. Anyway thanks once again!!
