Have you ever stuck with your kids or any intruder who tried a lot of times to unlock your pattern or entered wrong PIN codes until you got the horrible message "Too many pattern attempts" and you do not have internet connection to unlock by signing in!





Here's how to reset your lock settings to "Slide Unlock".

Requirements:
  • Rooted phone.
  • Debugging enabled.

Steps:
Code:
adb shell
su
rm /data/system/locksettings.db
reboot
Or instead of rebooting, if you already had multiple users on your device, you can simply log out from Primary and log in back again.



And you're done

Same steps can be taken from a Custom Recovery if you, by chance, don't have USB debugging enabled.

Edit:
Obviously there are other methods as well...
But this one will preserve your data =]
