Issue 3795 - android - Couldn't unlock phone after "too many pattern attempts" - Project Hosting on Google Code

T-Mobile G1 Forum - Too many pattern attempts, now I can't login


I have since found out how to do the Hard Reset that should fix the problem but I am not going to try on my phone.

This is how you do a Hard Reset:

You can hard reset your Motorola Droid phone if you want clear all of the data off of the device and start fresh. Hereís how itís done.
1. Turn the Droid off. If it wonít turn off, take the battery out then place it back in.
2. Open the keyboard and press the X key while pressing and holding Power. The device will power on. Keep holding the buttons downuntil a yellow triangle appers.
3. Press the Camera and Volume Up buttons at the same time to get to the menu. (I had to press them several times).
4. Use the direction pad to the right of the keyboard to select the Format option.
(This worked great, ccompletely wiped to factory settings and lost all of my stuff which was not a big deal compared to not being able to use. Thanks a bunch, now i know.

Sounds like you're in the wrong forum, this is for Original Droids.


Try : Acer Liquid E - Android Forums

Okay everyone here is a TRUE Challenge, how do you hard Reset a DROID PRO? I tried power on with the x button (keyboard always open as it is the Blackberry killer). HOWEVER:

I just got this phone from a friend who was on Verizon and switched to the iPhone4 (72 y/o attorney). He had me do a factory reset to clear his information, but phone was not ROOTED. Now when I start it up it goes to the activation screen, and I wanna Root it and Flash it. HELP A BROTHER OUT!

I have the Android SDK and when I link it to my PC I get the Moto(something) that runs, but I can't see the root directory. HELP ME (without Bricking) GET IN THIS PHONE'S HEAD!!!!

OKAY UPDATE: I went to YouTube, watched how to Hard Reset a Droid Pro R+M+Power, but that just lets you reset the phone, not get around Activation. So, more YouTube and I found if you tap (starting w/upper left) all four corners, like twice in a row, it bypasses the Activation screen. Then I downloaded z4 root 1.3.0 to my computer, USB it onto the Droid and VOILA I have a rooted Droid Pro, that will only connect to WiFi but cannot text or anything else since no service is connected.

NOW - Who knows how to Flash a Droid Pro to Cricket?
Thanks
