How to unlock a pattern lock on Android China Tablet USB debugging is off?

I need to Factory Reset my Tablet

You can try to enter your Gmail account and password, and you have to be connected to the internet via data connection or WiFi. If not, you will have to do a Hard Reset to be able to use it again. I suggest you do the following steps to perform a Factory Reset:

  • turn off your Tablet
  • press the following:

power button

volume up/down or both

home button (if any)

or look for a reset button/hole

  • release the power button when you see the logo
  • use volume buttons to scroll and power button to select
  • choose wipe data/Factory Reset
  • choose yes--delete all user data
  • choose reboot now

NOTE: This will delete all user data and apps

If for some reason, doing a Hard Reset that way does not work, please consider taking your Tablet to a technician who knows how to reset a Tablet using a computer because if you do it by yourself, it may cause a major boot issue that you do not want.

How to unlock an Android locked out device with no internet connection?

A friend of mine entered the wrong unlock pattern a number of times on my jellybean Android phone which was not connected to data as well as WiFi. This resulted in a locked out device which is asking me my Google account credentials. Even though I remember my account details, my phone is not accepting them and calling them incorrect, maybe because without any connection it is unable to verify them.Can you please help


The only possible solution is to perform a Hard Reset. You will need to do the following:

volume button (up/down or both)

home button (if any)

or look for a reset hole or button

  • choose wipe data/Factory Reset
  • choose yes--delete user data
  • device will reboot or will ask you to reboot

I want to unlock a Salora Android Tablet?

I have forgotten my Gmail account password so I can't unlock it.

In regards to your specific Tablet, there are no steps that I could find to help you be able to reset your Tablet, but I know a couple of steps you can take to Hard Reset an Android Tablet by using the button combinations below:

-Power off your device

-Hold the volume up + power button

-Release these buttons when the boot menu appears

-Use the volume keys to highlight the Factory Reset option

-Press the power button to make the selection

-After selecting this use the volume keys to highlight the reboot device option

-Press the power button to make the selection to restart your device

Also in the steps above, if the Power + volume up button does not work, use the following combination:

-Power + Volume down + Volume Up + Home key (if available) to reach the boot menu but the other steps will be the same to navigate and make selections on the screen

I forgot my password, and I can't open it already even though I press the reset button, power key + volume up + home key?

There was a warning sign which states, a custom OS can cause critical problems in phone and installed applications. If you want to download a custom OS, press the volume up key...but when pressing, word downloading appears but it never works. I have tried: Reset key, power key + volume up / down key + home button. It never works so far. I think it was caused by: A custom OS?

Even with a Custom OS, the reset instructions are the same. Remove the battery, then proceed into the hard reset process. You did not list what device you are trying to hard reset, but they are not all the same regarding how to hard reset so search your device name and hard reset to get the specific instructions.

Even with a Custom OS, you should still get a Forgot Password option so that you can use your Google Account to unlock the device. It may take several attempts before you see the option.

How to uninstall my appzlock app?

Hi, I locked all the apps of my phone with appzlock, and whenever I open an app it launches appzlock, that asks for a password, when I enter the password it disappears for like 0.4 seconds, and then again it asks for the password, this process is repeated again and again. And also I had 'TalkBack' option activated in settings, so I am not getting enough time to enter pass and uninstall appzlock. Please help me.... I have tried: I can't open any app and not even settings as it launches appzlock permission every 0.4 seconds or so.... and also my TalkBack option is on so I could not try anything so far..... I think it was caused by: An app whose name is appzlock

Two fingers tap the screen and go into Settings to disable TalkBack. Then you can enter the appzlock password or go into Applications Manager, clear the cache from the app and uninstall it. This VisiHow article titled Disable TalkBack (Talk Back) mode in Samsung Galaxy Note II (Note 2) is for the Note2, but the method works for all Galaxy devices.
