Well with the boot loader unlocked you can temporarily boot up into recovery by using fastboot: fastboot boot recovery-clockwork-6.0.4.7-mako.img This will then give you adb access to your device to get files off etc. The adb debug mode could then be turned on by editing a settings file and copying in the crypto keys generated by adb on the host computer. ...

You probably cannot avoid that on a not-rooted device, as user-certificates enforce this. On a rooted device, you could make it a "trusted system certificate", and thus not trigger the described behavior – assuming you're talking about a certificate as shown in Settings › Security › Certificates in the "user" tab. The corresponding system certificates are ...

That seems like it is a bug in the custom ROM you are using. Many custom ROMs (or Xposed modules) that add a rotate lock screen function may have that bug. If it is disabled, and the bug occurs, there only ways to reverse it are to either restart com.android.systemui or to enable auto-rotation of the lock screen and then turn the phone into landscape mode, ...

It's telling you that you will have to unlock the device before you can access a widget tap's action. Eg: If I tap on the clock widget on my lock screen, I will have to unlock the phone before it opens the clock screen. If I tap on a Google Now widget on my lock screen, I will have to unlock the phone before it opens Google Search/Now. The dimming is ...

For the One Plus One Phone running Android Version 4.4.4 with CyanogenMod version 11.0-XNPH44S, go to Settings -> Lock Screen -> Slider Shortcuts. You will just see the icon of the lock and after you touch it, you will see your current options. To change or remove one of these, move the lock to the target icon and you will then see options to modify it.

AFAIK, there is no option to manually lock the device on Lollipop. You can use 3rd-party app such as Lock Screen App (free) that has Device Administration privilege to force lock the device (similar to Android Device Manager). On the other hand, maybe you can try the new "Smart Lock" feature to prevent the phone locking when turning off the screen. ...

Yes, they have removed this toggle in the quick settings menu. Custom ROMs may be able to restore the toggle.

Try this: Open your Settings. Scroll down and select Security. Clear Credentials. Check the Screen Lock setting to see if the low-security options are now enabled. If that doesn't work, you can revert your lockscreen security to Slide. Set your lockscreen security to Pattern from Settings>Security>Screen Lock. Click the power button on your phone to ...

I have experienced this as well. My first S5 was as you described your friend's, I was initially required to enter a password when encrypting the device. However, after doing so, I was able to change it to a PIN. Unfortunately, this phone broke and I was forced to buy a new one. It would appear the loophole I took advantage of in the software on my first ...

Try resetting the screen lock on your phone. Worked for me. I have a nexus 4 too.

all right, i got exact same issue as you described. i was listening the TunelIn Radio then i got the cover of the radio show on the screen lock background. i did the following to get rid of the cover photo: open any app (not build in by Google) on your device, lock the screen before the app is full running, then unlock , the lock screen background should ...

I'm not sure automatic password detection is available. After all, computers don't really have that function. You still have to select the user/enter username. As far as having the option to lock certain apps automatically when in family mode but unlocked in My mode, upgrade your Android version at least 4.3 (newest is Lollipop 5.0 but that's not available ...

Go to Settings >> My Device >> Home Screen Mode and change it to "Standard Mode". That should enable the personal message option on your lock screen...

If you have lock screen options grayed out, that's usually enforced by some program that has been granted permission to act as a "device administrator". Most commonly, it's the stock Mail app if you are connecting to a corporate mail server, or some corporate security software you may have been asked to install if you're connecting to a company network. Go ...

Had the same bug. Restarting Spotify, locking the phone and unlocking cleared the wallpaper.

Last but not least, the Lollipop lock screen shows full-screen still images from multimedia content being played from the device -- so you might see a graphic from a TV show or cover art from an album, depending on what you're streaming. In my experience, however, the images don't seem to clear properly when the content is no longer being ...

EDIT: Looks like it may be the wifi certificate, it's forcing a higher level of security (pin or password). There's a highly technical discussion about that at this older question: Certificate Install without mandatory PIN lockscreen So you 'll probably either have to deal with the pin or get rid of the wifi certificate. ... ... ... Go to Settings >> ...

Sounds like an ART incompatibility. You probably installed an app recently that doesn't work properly with ART. Presumably it added itself to the start-up apps. That's why your UI crashes when booting up. You will have to find a way to either remove the app in question or go back to the Dalvik runtime. I went through the same ordeal a month ago when I opted ...

Try the Mail Wise app. It bypasses Exchange security, but you won't be able to use the Gmail app. For details, read this Mail Wise FAQ.

The voice commands are part of the screen lock settings. Touch the"screen lock" setting and it will take you to the"screen lock" settings which include "wake up commands". Once you check/turn on "wake up commands" you will have a new button below that should be called "set wakeup commands" or something similar. I have a Galaxy S4.

In fact, after changing phone language, I should be allowed to set password based on my desired language. Your assumption here is wrong, at least for stock Android. Based from AOSP source code that handles the password input for lock screen, ChooseLockPassword.java, inside validatePassword() (line 292), here is a snippet that will show the "illegal ...

This works at my device: Settings -> Security -> Deactivate Administrators. Deactivate anything listed. Settings -> Security -> Clear credentials.

I figured it out. Swiping to the right opens the phone, swiping to the left, the camera and swiping up unlocks to the home screen.

Dashclock also lets you put various info on the lockscreen - temperature, battery charge, number of new emails, etc.

Go to Settings>Fingerprint>Choose Screen Lock to change from Password to a PIN

You can simply erase you security credentials in security and this will automatically allow you to remove the lock screen on 5.0

Just as Kushtrim mentioned, I also suspect that it's due to "Trusted face": maybe it's too sensitive, or the face you provided is.. still too general that everyone's face is detected as yours. Some suggestions that I could think of: Turn off "Trusted face". It's an obvious solution, but you cannot enjoy this new feature. Improve the "Trusted face" ...

I tried what you're saying a few times, and after you close the camera, you're back on the lock screen. Unless you were actually looking at the phone, it recognized your face and it unlocked itself milliseconds before opening the camera. You can notice that the "symbol" in the middle goes from that of a person to that of an unlocked lock when it recognizes ...

I assume that you are seeing the "Block" and "Priority" options from the screenshot, but not the "Sensitive" one. In this case, I have been able to replicate your situation. In the Sound & notification settings page, there is an option called "When device is locked". If this is set to "Show all notification content" then the "sensitive" option is ...

Since I just upgrade to 5.0/Lollipop, I can't confirm for sure if this setting is present in KitKat/4.4, but in 5.0, you can hide the last digit in the PIN unlock screen by turning off the Security setting labeled Make passwords visible, as seen here: This is found under the general Settings app under the Security section. Note, however, that this also ...

Another way you could achieve this is by downloading Espier Screen lock and the Espier Control Center. The installation is simple, and you can control even more without unlocking the screen. Modeled after Apple's iPhone lockscreen.

Check if your credentials in security, if you have an application that requires you to have a password and delete that. Did you encrypt the phone ? That requires a password. Also if you are a guest you cant, but i think you already are an administrator of your own device.

Make sure your camera shortcut is on in the lockscreen. Open the camera from the lockscreen, drag your flash setting to the top from the camera settings and make sure it is on. Now all you have to do is open the camera shortcut and click video and your light will stay on. It will also record video while it's on but this is the only way to turn on your ...

You can do this in KitKat using the Xposed Framework with the AudioPrivacy module: http://repo.xposed.info/module/com.audio.privacy Unfortunately, this does not work in Lollipop, because Xposed does not work on Lollipop. I wish the CyanogenMod team would just add an option to disable this to the Lockscreen settings. Maybe I will bug them about it.

You also have to swipe before you can enter the password... which is also a bit annoying, but I got used to it and you can start swiping from the bottom to the right with your thumb in a bow shape, which is a bit more ergonomic I think. So I thing you just have to get used to it, or maybe a laucher can change this. Best regards Josef
