It happens to forget the password or the pattern of your phone. I use to forget it a lot, especially because I have so many passwords I have to remember.
Locking your phone with a pattern, pin or even face unlock is a must nowadays because someone can take your phone and can check or even steal personal information from your it. It may happen someone of your friends can take your phone and check your messages, contacts, photos and more.
You may have nothing to worry about but still it’s annoying when someone uses your phone without permission. So the best way to keep your phone safe is to lock it with a PIN, pattern or even face unlock and fingerprints. This might be a helpful but sometimes it can happens you forget the password or the PIN.
In these cases when you forget the PIN or the pattern, unlocking your phone can be a bit annoying. Sometimes it can be very hard and it might be needed to wipe everything. This is not a good idea, isn’t it?
To make things easier a developer at the XDA called joe2k01 created an application and named it ‘Unlock me’. It’s very easy to use but it has only one requirements:
You have to flash it through a Custom Recovery. If you haven’t installed one yet you may want to check our Recovery section and find a guide how to install a custom Recovery on your phone.
You don’t need to do anything else simply reboot your phone into recovery and flash this app. But remember: We are not responsible for anything that can happen to your phone. You are the only one who is messing with your device so it’s only your responsibility for whatever happens to your phone.
The app is tested with various devices and it works fine. It is tested with almost all kind of password: PIN, Face Unlock, Pattern etc. It works perfect and it’s worth giving it a try. Download ‘Unlock me’ from here.
