I forgot the lock pattern in one plus one with cm12?

I forgot the lock pattern in one plus one with cm12

Do a factory reset. You could still change the pin in Google Device Manager but you would be suspended from using the device for 72 hours after you change the password. At least with a factory reset, you will be able to access the device in less than one hour.

With the 12.1 they took away the option of forgotten password so you will have to hard reset the device.

I know the email that is associated with my tablet but I don't understand why it doesn't work?

I forgot my passcode and I tried using all my emails but it didn't work, so I don't know whats the problem. I tried with the same tablet but another one and it worked. I have tried: Reboot and reset like pressing the volume and power button simultaneously.. I think it was caused by: I don't know.

Because you know your password does work, hard reset the tablet and although you will lose data, the tablet will be accessible again.

Can I hard reset my sons HTC Android Verizon LTE phone? A former friend removed his email and password and associated a different email to his phone?

Can I hard reset my sons HTC Android Verizon LTE phone? A former friend removed his email and password and associated a different email to his phone. I have tried: Erased and tried to restart phone, now asks for the unknown email

Was this helpful? Yes | No

Hard reset the phone to remove what the former friend did. If it comes up again to put the password in, you will have to install new Stock ROM to the HTC device. As a parent, you should contact the parent of the former friend and insist that they pay for you to take the device to a cell phone repair shop to add the new Stock ROM. What that former friend did is technically against the law.

I am a police officer in Uganda, I recovered one plus one mobile phone for Jessica (but I have failed to communicate to her about the recovery of her phone). This phone is locked and it is asking for the Gmail account, is there any way this mobile phone can be delivered to the owner? If not is there any way it can be opened such that any one can use?

I tried following the steps to reset to default but they are not working. Vol+ and Power button at the same time, but the Android does not come on the screen like it should. Well I got this pop before I could even read the article. I have tried: The Android factory reset steps are not working, tried several times with no luck. I think it was caused by: He forgot pattern and never saved account information.
