Locked out of my phone

    Ok. So I realize this will sound suspect but...

    I just flashed my first rom successfully (Serendipity). After booting up the phone I set the lock password while fooling around with some of the settings. I then ran a restore of my apps and data with Titanium Backup. I then reboot the phone so all of the apps would show up. It booted up to the lock screen and the password I set would no longer work. I know I am entering the correct password because I used it successfully before the boot. Will I have to restore the phone? Will I lose all my apps/data?

    Is it possible you backed up and restored some system settings too? Maybe you somehow reverted to a previous password?

    If you fail the password check too many times I believe it will then ask for your gmail address and password to get in.

    I flashed my first rom successfully today, serendipity 6.4. Everything's great except my default browser doesn't work and I added email thru the kitchen but every time I open it it force closes. I even tried twice 2 flash it. Any suggestions?

    Confirmed that the issue arose from restoring some system data. Wiped the phone and ran Titanium backup without issue. Thanks to Xyro!
