I'm trying to help a friend about a device with a locked screen to which he forgot the password for it. There are no associated accounts. While trying to perform the steps described in Disable Pattern Lock via ADB, I get the following error:
sqlite3: permission denied
If I type
sqlite3 without any parameters, I get the same error.
I don't know if the device is rooted. It's an Android Eclair, the Windows PC it's connected to has the drivers for it, adb is working and reports the device when I type
How can I perform sqlite3 commands on it, specifically on the file I want?
