How can I crack a phone's four number unlock code?

I'm trying to get into my husband's phone but he has a four digit passcode and I cannot figure it out.


Unfortunately, there's no way you can "crack" a four-digit unlock code. If you need to use your husband's phone, you'll have to ask him for his password, or you'll have to ask him to unlock his phone and give it to you.

How can I unlock my Dual-core 4GB Android tablet?

My dad was trying to download some games on my tablet and he didn't know the pattern unlock code so it eventually locked up on him and now it's asking for my Google account info and when I put it in they say it's not right. Is there any other way I can get it unlocked?

Use a PC and login to your Google Account. Under the My Account Settings and then Security, there is a section on Two Step Verification. If this is enabled, your Google Account would not work for bypassing the pattern lock. Once you disable the Two Step Verification, reboot your tablet so that it syncs with Google again. Then use your Google Account to bypass the lock.

Have you ever signed into your Google Account on the PC? If so, then your username would be there either on Chrome, YouTube, or Gmail. See if you can recover your username through Google Accounts Recovery. If not, you will have to hard reset the device with the instructions from this Youtube Tutorial on How to Hard Reset an LG Optimus L3. If you have Lollipop or Marshmallow OS, you will still need that Google Account after you hard reset the device to access the phone again.

Keep attempting until you get the option to use your Google Account. Keep in mind, you will need to have data or WiFi enabled to use your Google Account. You may need to remove the battery for a soft reset and then attempt to use your code. Hopefully, you are still using the same Google Account on all your devices which will make it easier to bypass the pin lock.

OK, so I think you mean you want to update the OS to Marshmallow which is on the S6. Now, this can only be done if the S3 has an online ROM available for Marshmallow. Otherwise, you will brick your device. There are Clockwork Mods that have certain features of the Marshmallow for the S3. First, you would have to root your phone. SamMobile has one of the most extensive ROM lists when it comes to a Samsung device. Start there to see if there is ROM available with the newer software for each of the devices you listed.
