How can I recover or at least reset a pattern lock on my Sony Z1?

I forgot the pattern to my phone and I tried almost every method I could find over the net of resetting patterns and they all don't seem to get me anywhere. Please help in any possible way you can?. I have tried: I tried the (hold volume up + power button) (hold volume down + power button) (hold the volume up + volume down + power button) I also tried entering the reset code and nothing worked. I tried using the MoboRobo software that also includes part of using the command prompt but it also did not work. I think it was caused by: I set my phone lock pattern and I also set the cm locker pattern lock but most of the time I was using the cm locker pattern lock and when my phone finally switched off it required the phone lock pattern and I don't remember it.

Restriction on my Sony Xperia Z phone for security?

Good day, my problem is; I don't want to use pattern, pin or password on my Sony Xperia Z, but the none its gray restricted, I can't click on it to make any password, pattern or pin. I have tried everything even calling Sony Xperia Support Care but they seem not to find a solution for me since they don't have Technicians in-house.. . . . Thanks. I haven't seen any of the problems that have said their security under none is restricted, all they spoke about was forgetting their patterns. I have tried: I've tried comparing with other Sony Xperia phones to see what could be the problem. Also called Sony Xperia care support. I think it was caused by: After upgrading the software I presume or something that I have pressed
