    Sorry without the proper credentials you cannot bypass it.
    The encryption keys are gone forever.
    Toss it and move on.

    yep as @Dannydet said, you can't get the pin code that way. you do not have access to read and write onto the system....you will need to root the device in order for those adb commands to work. but most root methods will delete data. if you forgot your pin then you will need to do a hard reset.

    .....or get a new device.

    Hi thanks for the reply I have rooted the device but the superuser prompt lights up the screen but I can't accept it due to the lock.
