If it is just to mainly retrieve data, there are spy apps like Auto Forward and others that can be installed using just the person's phone number. There are other spy apps that bypass and locks and with Lollipop and Marshmallow Android OS on newer devices, a hard reset will still not get you access to the phone. You would have to disable the USB debugging and then install new firmware on the device.

How do I unlock my phone its a homtom ht7pro without factory resetting?

Its locked with a pattern which I forgot, have entered too many patterns but still stuck, I can't open with Google account because the message is not visible.


You will have to hard reset if you can't use your Google Account. You have to click forgot password to use the Google Account on many devices. You can connect the HomTom to a PC to back up your data. Pull the battery and attempt patterns again. You should be able to figure it out. Also, clean your screen before you do this because oils and residue can dull the haptic pattern. To hard reset, hold down the Volume Up and Power buttons until the Android appears. Use the Volume Keys to navigate the Recovery Menu and Power to confirm your selections.

I forgot pattern of lava iris x8?

What do you mean by the zip file

The zip file is referred to in the section about using ADB tools to unlock and factory reset an Android Device. To hard reset you have to hold down the Volume Up, Home and Power buttons until the Recovery Menu appears. It is not that complicated on the Lava Iris x8. It would be better to use the Forgot Password option so that you can input your Google Account login credentials. This way you do not lose any data.
