I wonder if someone could help me. Xiaomi Mi Mix2, android 9. I got a bug with fingerprint installing a gsi port. I failed to log in and decided to delete files locksettings.db, locksettings.db-wal, locksettings.db-shm. I've did it once already and it worked OK, so I deleted them in recovery mode. The system booted, but it's impossible to create neither new pattern key nor pin or password - it shows up "system do not respond" after a while and the screen turns black, and only reboot helps. Clean flash (wiped everything, even the internal storage) didn't help. Restoring from backup didn't help. Tried TWRP and Orange Fox. Pls if any ideas, I appreciate any help.
I had to go back to an old phone with Android 7.1.1 and already got into the third day of trying different lock patterns to open. I only remembered that the pattern was completely trivial . This method saved my sanity. Thank you, thank you!
I have a huawei p10 lite with a pin when start the phone, we dont remember this, but remember all the account Google and huawei password, If we put the sim, mobile data are enabled.
What I can try to do for remove this PIN without lost any file?
Is possible to put recovery without unlock the phone? Like using Linux o something similar? The debug mode is not enabled.
Faced the described issue after an unsuccessful restore from TWRP.
Found not all of the mentioned files from OP but then renamed the three files to xxx.old, rebooted and could access again my data. I redefined my password, deleted and redefined the fingerprint and everything seems fine even after a reboot. The system re-created the db-file (see enclosed).
