How to Bypass Android Lockscreen

Have you forgotten your Android lockscreen pattern? Are you worried because you don’t want all your data to be vanished? (fortunately) there’s no need to worry anymore as we are here to help you with “How to Bypass Android Lockscreen“. In this article we will discuss two methods of craking your android lockscreen.

Method #1: Boot to Recovery Mode to Bypass Lockscreen:

The first and the easiest way to bypass is obviously to boot your device to recovery mode and perform a factory reset to remove all the data stored in your phone including lockscreen. To enter recovery mode of your device follow these steps:/

  1. Turn off your device
  2. Press and hold (power button+volume up button+home button) untill your device turns on and boot options appear
  3. Go to Recovery Mode with volume down button and select it by pressing power button. That’s it this will reset the factory settings in your device and lockscreen will be off.

But we don’t want to erase all our data all we want is to just crack the lockscreen without losing any data so here is the only way to do that

Method #2: Bypass Your Lockscreen Using ADB Shell:

ADB(Android Dubug Bridge) shell is used for communication between Android device and computer it is a tool that let’s you control your android powered devices  through your computer using terminal. Through this we will be formatting Android device data using our PC. Hence your device has to be rooted to Bypass the Lockscreen.

let’s do this

first of all download the ADB package. You can download it Here.

Unzip the package and put the folder to somewhere you wnat. Open the folder, hold SHIFT and RIGHT CLICK. Choose open in command prompt. A black window will appear. That’s the command prompt.

First of all, type ADB DEVICE (with lowercase letters) and ensure your device is recognizable by ADB. You should see a hash “#” with “device” next to it. If nothing pops up, bad luck. The reason of this might be that ADB drivers are not setup or USB debugging is not enabled.

But if you see the device? Hurray! Access the shell by typing “adb shell” (without quotes)
Next, grant the superuser permissions by typing “su” into the terminal. You should see “#” symbol representing the superuser permissions are granted for your device.

Now just paste these lines separately into the console.

rm /data/system/locksettings.db
rm /data/system/locksettings.db-wall
rm /data/system/locksettings.db-shm

Done? Type “reboot” this will reset your phone without deleting any data other than lockscreen data. You’re done.
