    If your phone's Android is rooted

    &

    If your phone can get accessed by means of ADB


    then

    you can open Android's SQLite database named /data/system/locksettings.db via ADB

    Code:
    adb devices
    adb shell 
    mount -t auto -o rw,remount /data/system
    sqlite3 /data/system/locksettings.db

    and do the database query as mentioned in the article linked to.

    @jwoegerbauer this is what it shows
    1620813647471.png

    Some things to mention.
    1.My phone is locked.
    2.By default it goes to USB tethering mode upon connecting to my PC(I changed the setting in DEV mode)
    3. It is rooted
    4. It has orange fox recovery installed
    5. Again I am a noob right now (won't remain that way for too long) and need a tutorial of some kind to do this successfully.
    6. I do not know SQL and so how to use it either, and for that matter Hashcat too.

    The blog still remains difficult for me.

    Thanks again

    @jwoegerbauer what does properly rooted mean. All apps that require root works properly.
    It's not interesting here whether apps that require root work or not. In your case it is only important whether SU-binary can be found by the system.

    Anyway:
    Some newer Android builds require the following additional ADB commands to be run first to disable Android's AVB-lock

    Code:
    adb root
    adb disable-verity
    adb reboot
    adb wait-for-device

    Try this. Then run commands as listed above.

    FYI: I no longer participate this thread. Have a nice day.
