You know, it would be great if many people test this. As I have only an x10 mini pro, it's rather hard for me to test this on other devices .

I couldn't remember my unlock pattern. Tried flashing the .zip on my HTC Evo 4G LTE running Dirty Unicorn (based off Paranoid Android) but it didn't work (I'm Rooted, unlocked, S-Off with TWRP installed).

I was able to get in using my Google account after all though. The "forgot password" button didn't show before but it did after I rebooted and tried the pattern unsuccessfully 5 times. It showed up then (maybe the button stops showing AFTER 5 unsuccessful attempts until you reboot?).

But what if you don have an account or you forgot the password to that, too???

Here are two possibilities:

B. For everyone without a recovery version installed:

What you need:
-A computer running a Linux distro (Ubuntu, Mint, etc.) NOTE: This Guide was written for MINT 14, but it should work on other distros, too.
-a USB cable to connect your phone to the PC
-adb installed (look at quick tutorial below)


INSTRUCTIONS:

1. Connect you (turned on) Phone to the Computer via USB.
2. Open a terminal window.
3. Type

Code:
adb devices
adb shell
cd data/system
rm *.key
4. Done!

Now you just have to reboot.


NOTE: The Pattern lock will probably still show up, but you can type in anything you want, as it will accept anything!

Please test this on every Android OS, as I have only tested it on GB so far, but, theoretically, it should work on any Android Version & ROM.


I know there are similar threads on xda, but this is the first that offers a tutorial for getting past almost all locks (Password, PIN, Pattern) instead of only he Pattern, and, of course, the first to offer a flashable zip.

I can confirm that i've tested this (Method B), using ADB in Windows and it worked on my Xperia T (Jellybean, firmware 9.1.A.1.141). Couple of points 'USB debugging' has to be enabled on the phone, had to add a 'su' command before the deletion line.
Code:
adb devices
adb shell
cd data/system
su
rm *.key
