I forgot the pattern lock on my new phone, it's an Acer Z630S running android 5.1. I managed to turn the WiFi on, but the only network my phone knows right now requires me to accept some conditions on a login page, however tapping the "Login to WiFi" notification asks for the pattern.
Fortunately I have USB debugging enabled, and my pc is a trusted device. Can I circumvent the lock screen is some way, or can I tap a button to log in to the WiFi network?
I also found this answer but none of those methods worked, here's a list of what went wrong with each of them:
- Credentials stuff
My phone doesn't ask for them.
- Bypass screenlock using a special app
I don't have WiFi, so I can't download anything.
- Unlock via web
No WiFi, so isn't going to work.
- Disable Pattern Lock via ADB
As in one of the WiFi attempts: sqlite isn't installed, pulling doesn't work and mounting doesn't work either.
- Similar thing without ADB
My phone is not yet rooted.
- Phone hole stuff
I'm not in my home country and accepting calls costs a lot of money, so I can't really do that right now.
- Samsung users with Windows PC
It's an Acer device.
Any other things?
I've tried to document everything as good as possible, but I'd happily answer any other questions you might have!
