You are done and your lockscreen is gone and phone has been hard reset. Please not this leads to permanent removal of data.

Unlock Micromax Android Phone using Android Debug Bridge

In this we will use ADB (Android Debug Bridge) to unlock the device without losing any data.

  1. First we need to set up ADB on device , you generally need these files (LINK of adbzip) or you can Google on how to install ADB in windows.
  2. Just make a folder adb in c/root and copy the files.
  3. Install drivers of your phone (Use PDAnet if you have problem with finding drivers).
  4. Turn on USB debugging on phone. Follow : Setting–>Development–>USB Debugging (Turn On)
  5. Open Command prompt in computer , and type cd C:/Android (Android here is the folder where my adb files are , change according to yours)
  6. Then you can try following sets of command

Command set 1

method 1:

Code:

adb shell

cd /data/data/com.android.providers.settings/databases

sqlite3 settings.db

update system set value=0 where name=’lock_pattern_autolock';

update system set value=0 where name=’lockscreen.lockedoutpermanently';

.quit

Command set II

method 2:

Code:

adb shell rm /data/system/gesture.key

 

You have to try one method , and see which one is working.

This requires root in some devices and some it just works without problem.you can try both of them, here is how i managed to remove the lock:
1. Run the first method.
2 Reboot
3 Run the second method
4 Reboot

 

NOTE:

  • In the first method each line is a separate command so click enter after typing each line.
  • In the second method type all the command and then press enter.
  • After running both methods and rebooting you may see the pattern lock,that doesn’t necessarily mean it doesn’t work, just try any random pattern and it may unlock then remove the pattern from settings.
  • This may and may not work, it may work on some devices and don’t on others, so all you can do is trying it but i can’t assure it will work.

      Same if the case with me..Please tell me whether you unlocked your phone or not.
      I would be honoured by your help.

    • Make a call to you phone from another number, when call is connected drop down upper menu(where date/time/battery/network status shows) and go to settings, there you can enable Data Connection and after enabling data connection disconnect the call and click on forgot pattern and put your gmail id & password and follow the instructions…………….. I unlocked my A114
