This guide is for educational purpose only 


Introduction


It sucks when you forget your passwords

But Gmail account can save you. But what for those who don't have it?

There are some methods to reset them

Wiping data being most popular

But, why loosing precious data when there is a easier or easiest to do method



This is a new method found and tested by me on a rooted device but the resources it uses are available to be used without root too, so it may work on unrooted devices too.

This method uses Aroma File Manager by amarullz in Recovery Mode of the device to delete the password database related files. So, it should work on all devices!

So, first you need to download AROMA FILE MANAGER from this thread :-


Aroma File Manager




Credits:-



*amarullz for Amazing Aroma File Manager
*m.sabra for information about which files are related to passwords and pattern






Instructions:-





1. Download Aroma File Manager.
2. Place it in the root of your sdcard(Preferred)
3. Reboot into recovery
4. For CWM:



Mount all partitions (including sd-ext if you have it)

And flash Aroma File Manager from sdcard

For stock recovery(Samsung e3):


In stock recovery, there is no option to mount partitions, so

Flash Aroma File Manager, Click on menu option and go to settings

Select Mount All Partitions

Now, exit from Aroma File Manager and reflash it.

Now, you will see each partition is mounted
5. Now, go to /data/system

Note : If you have sd-ext mod to increase internal storage, go to /sd-ext/system/
6. Now, If you have to remove pattern lock, long press and delete gesture.key

If you want to remove password, delete password.key
7. Exit the Aroma File Manager
8. Reboot
9. Enjoy

Thumbs up Big thanks!
I had forgotten my PIN and I can do nothing for help because I disabled the root access by adb, I tried any method like installing a app to bypass the lock screen, use adb command to disable and much much more...
BUT IT DID NOT WORK!!!
A big thank to the developer, again, because you help me save all my data and save my time.

He used the word "Rooted device" .... So if you are rooted...you can easily install a custom recovery from a stock recovery.

And also gave a possibility for non-rooted device. Tested on rooted.

There is no android phone without recovery


And you can try my ROM Tools v3 which automatically reset passwords

Including what Androidnow said

This method was posted long time ago in the portal... For not rooted phones, you need adb debugging enabled and use adb from a PC to delete the files needed to disable security... For rooted phones, same story plus what the OP mentioned...
