Unlock Android Pattern Lock Screen without root

Here comes two methods for unlocking your Android pattern Lock Screen when you forget the pattern. It is quite common among the users that they forget the new patterns that they just created and even the passwords they set for their own systems. But these steps can work on any mobiles for unlocking their Android pattern Lock Screens. The method used to hack into the pattern Lock Screen is using the ADB – Android Debug Bridge- a versatile command line tool that lets communicate with an emulator instance or connected Android powered device. We communicate with the Android enabled devices with the Computer using the command prompt where we access the Android mobiles with the codes.Android

Just test with these steps to unlock your Android mobiles. Though this step assists you in unlocking the pattern Lock Screen, please remember that this step even facilitates the third user to unlock and gain access to your mobile. So be cautious with your mobile and always keep it handy and never give them to others believing that they could not be able to unlock it.

Set up USB Debugging in your mobile

This unlocking procedure is quite simple which works on MAC, Linux and PC. Before entering into the steps to unlock pattern Lock Screen ensure that the USB Debug is enabled. In order to enable USB Debug Enabled, Go to Settings à Application à Development à USB Debugging. This works on every Android Device, Just switch on your Android mobile and you could see the Pattern Lock Screen if it was previously enabled. Here you could unlock your mobile only if you know the pattern that you had set it earlier. Other patterns do not work anyhow. So to hack this and enter into the applications, follow the below steps.Pattern Lock

Here comes the step involved in unlocking your pattern Lock Screen.

1)      Connect your Android mobile to the computer using the data cable.

2)      Now you could provide commands to your Android mobile through your computer.

Android Mobile Pattern Unlocks

What you need to do is restart your device. It does not mean that your phone is to be unlocked before it should be switched off. Just use the power button to turn off your phone. Now restart or reboot your phone. Now unplug the data cable that is still attached with your mobile phone. Now try to unlock your mobile using any of the patterns. All the patterns work to unlock your phone. So your mobile is not restricted to the only pattern that you had set already.

How to enable pattern again

You may be thinking now that the pattern is broken now, you could be able to set it again as if you have done nothing to your mobile. Just go to Passwordà security àScreen Lock àPattern and draw a pattern as nothing has ever happened before, continue and draw it again to confirm it. Now the pattern is set again and the mobile stick only with the pattern that you have set now.

This method is only for unlocking your mobile when the pattern is forgot and not for hacking others mobile. Hope everyone uses this method for their own mobile in a positive way.
