    I am running lithium mod rom. I ran fix permissions in RM and rebooted the phone. Now when it pulls up the screen to enter my PIN the PIN I had set no longer works. I have tried several battery pulls trying to get into recovery with no luck. Thanks in advance for any help that is given.

    Did you make a backup prior to doing that? If so restore the backup....

    hmm getting into recovery should have nothing to do with a pin lock setting. Sounds like you are going to have to sbf back to stock

    I guess I'll go back to stock and reroot. I wish I knew what caused it to do this.

    what happens if you put you phone in the cardock ? can you then get to settings and turn it off ? I dont use a pin but the cardock does bypass the normal lockscreen.

    Just a thought :rolleyes:
