Questions and Answers

Hi, I cannot figure out my phone password for anything. And my phone does not present the forgot password option. How can I resolve this without factory resetting?

You need to enter the wrong password up to 20 times for your phone to ask for your Google account information. Then, when it asks for the information, enter it; your phone will unlock, allowing you to change or remove the password to something you can remember. If you don't remember your Google account information, go here to try to retrieve it. If you can't retrieve your information, or if your phone still doesn't allow you to enter your Google information, you will unfortunately need to perform a Factory Reset. As you already know, this wipes all of your phone's data. To learn how to perform a Factory Reset on your Android phone, read through and follow the steps in this great VisiHow guide.

Volume up/down to hi enter button to select.

reboot system now

apply update from ADB

apply update from sdcard

apply update from cache

wipe data/factory reset. But still did not work, it displays (no command) message.. I think it was caused by: I was using pattern for security purpose in my phone, the other day, I decided to replace one of my SIM card with other SIM card in the phone, while doing replace, phone was turned off, after that process, I turned on the phone again, put the screen pattern, I draw it successfully, just after few minute, it displays another thing requesting for a password which is not the pattern, I tried that password but I am not able to unlocked for many times.
