Forgot pattern for my 8.36z Android?

Someone reset my pattern and he forgot the pattern too

Ad

When you say that you have an 8.36z Android device. I believe that the brand of your Android unit is an O+ Android phone that you forgot the pattern and wanted to unlock the phone home screen again and make it use.

If you forgot the pattern on your O+ phone, you can simply perform Hard Reset. However, your contacts, pictures, videos, documents, applications and any other stuff that you installed will automatically be deleted that you cannot bring it back, except if you made a back up or re-download them one by one.

According to the manual, it does not have any information on how you can reset the phone back to factory settings. You can go to this link for the manual: https://www.google.com.ph/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=1&ved=0CCgQFjAA&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.oplususa.com%2Fsites%2Fdefault%2Ffiles%2Fmanual%2F8.36z_Manual.pdf&ei=QjA0U8TbLsnaoASM3IFw&usg=AFQjCNEtztP-nNOqG5adUZozIr3veV1WBQ

    Was this step helpful? Yes | No

    Was this step helpful? Yes | No
  4. 4
    Once you have the menu, let go of the buttons then navigate to wipe data then select yes to start the reset process.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No

Wait for a couple of seconds to 2 minutes then go to reboot or restart. Please note that all files has been deleted as per mentioned above. If the generic method for reset did not work, it is best that you contact the phone manufacturer's outlet and have it check for them to have it restore.

I forgot the pattern lock for my Nexus 5 (Android version Lollipop 5.1).

I have a Lollipop 5.1 upgrade on my Nexus 5 phone. I forgot the pattern lock, and I am not able to reset the phone using Android Device Manager. Also, there is no "Forgot password?" option even after 5 wrong pattern attempts. I cannot afford to do a factory reset, as I cannot lose my data. Please help!
