Hi,
I would paypal donate anyone who help me out with this!
I use Password for screen unlock (digits and letters). I changed yesterday night and now I totally can't remeber the combination.
There is no option like pattern unlock to enter the google account password to unlock! even after doing 100 trial.

I really don't want to do a hard reset.

I'm rooted and debugging mode is active

I tried doing this adb command but it didn't work as it appear for pattern lock;

Quote:

./adb shell
# sqlite3 data/data/com.android.providers.settings/databases/settings.db
sqlite> update system set value=0 where name='lock_pattern_autolock';
sqlite> update system set value=0 where name='lockscreen.lockedoutpermanently';
sqlite> .exit
# exit

I'm not an expert but can someone help me edit that command to work with password lock instead of pattern lock please ?

I want to update that I was able to reset the password using the following commands;

Quote:

sqlite> update secure set value=0 where name='lockscreen.password_salt';
sqlite> update secure set value=0 where name='lockscreen.password_type';
sqlite> update secure set value=0 where name='lockscreen.lockoutattemptdeadline';
sqlite> update secure set value=0 where name='lock_pattern_visible_pattern';
sqlite> update system set value=0 where name='lockscreen.lockexchange.enable';

I managed to find it via this link:

Which a friend advised me to check...

So thanks everyone and I guess this thread ends here.
