I installed SDK, but the "ADB shell" command is not working in Windows. My phone is locked. How to unlock it without pattern password?

In order for the command to work, you would have needed to root your device beforehand. If that has been done, then you will need to open the Command Prompt by pressing the Windows key and typing "cmd.exe". Then, change directory to the one with the installed ADB (something like "CD c:\user\computer\AppData\ADB\", depending upon the path into which you have installed the ADB application). Then, type:

adb -d shell
# sqlite3 data/data/com.Android.providers.settings/databases/settings.db
sqlite> update system set value=0 where name='lock_pattern_autolock';
sqlite> .exit
# exit

If your smartphone was not rooted, then you will need to enter your Google credentials (if offered and if an Internet connection is present) or hard-reset your smartphone as shown in this tutorial section.
