Forgot your Android pattern lock?Here is the easy way to reset it.

Why the phone is sometimes locked out?
-Possibilities are that you have attempted too many pattern attempts.
-Someone else was playing with your lock screen code that it locked because of many attempts.

How to unlock any android phone which is locked out?

-If pattern was wrong 5 times and then it locked, select “Forgot Pattern”
-It will ask you for your email ID and password, if entered correctly then phone will successfully unlock.

What if you forgot your email ID or password?

Well then you need to hard reset your phone, which will delete all your settings and apps on your phone.SD card data will be preserved so worry not.
  • Shutdown your phone by holding down the power button.
  • Hold down the Volume Up and Power button simultaneously. Optional:For other phones try holding down the Volume down button and power button.(or Vol down+Up)
  • Continue holding the Volume Up and Power buttons until the phones logo screen is displayed.
  • When the phone’s logo screen is displayed, release the Power button but continue holding the Volume button until the Android System Recovery menu is displayed.
  • Once you are on the Android System Recovery menu, select the wipe data/factory reset option.  Moving the selection up and down is done with the Volume Up and Volume Down buttons.  Once you have the wipe data/factory reset option highlighted, you select it by touching the Home button.
  • Once you have chosen the factory reset option, you will see a confirmation screen.  Highlight the Yes delete all user data option and touch the Home button to select it.
  • The process of wiping the phone should only take a few seconds and when it is finished, you will be returned to the Android System Recovery menu.
  • Highlight and select the reboot system now option
  • You phone will now reboot back into normal mode

Wow !! Good for Android users. Does the data in your phone get wiped if you reset the factory settings?? 

Thx for the feedback, and yes unfortunately when you perform the hard reset it will wipe all your data.

Hello admin. Got a confusion. What if the android phone refuses to boot. As in it shows the logo and then restarts again and again. Tried booting it to recovery mode but it only displays the following words"Emergency mode". Nothing more.WHat to do.. pleasee help

You should be able to boot into recovery mode unless you have pwnd/bricked/corrupted your boot-loader causing it not being able to boot in recovery, if so then the phones boot loader needs to be flashed in download mode.

How to flash to download mode?

Please stay tuned as we will post an article on how to flash your android phone using download mode.Thanks

This will be good for the android users.

Sure, share it with your android friends:)

Hello, I was woundering if the hard reset would delete my pictures and my music because I would like to keep that stuff, and I have an HTC Android thank you veary much for the help.

It normally would not wipe your photos and music but sometimes it does i cant explain why though, so just give it a try..

im having a problem with my cloudfone, after pressing home for reboot option it shows nothing but the android logo with triangle and exclamation point? what should i do?

thanks so mush I really appreciate. it worked pafectly

hello is this the right solution? pls reply thanks

Thanks for the reply, but didn't work. Prolblem wasn't the pattern lock, but that the phone was locked in a boot-loop. I flashed it with a file found on NeedROM. That put it back to 'stock' or close to it.
Phone is not really regular Android, but 'Mocordroid' -- a fork, I think. It gives a version number expected for Jelly Bean, but the fork is really based on Gingerbread. M-Horse 9500mini -- maybe this is why it doesn't have the expected recovery options.
Anyway, it's working again.
