For some reason, I changed my keyboard to Greek, yet my password is in English. I am unable to enter the password to unlock the phone. I can't pair with Bluetooth without unlocking, and there is no option to change the language of the keyboard. Any help is greatly appreciated.

  • Did you change the built-in keyboard's language, or did you install, activate, and switch to a 3rd-party keyboard? Also, it would help to know which Android OS version you have installed, and if the device is rooted.

  • The device is not rooted. It is the default keyboard's language that I changed, so it stays there in safe mode, its on 4.4 KitKat and it's a Sony xperia z.

  • Does it not allow you to enter your gmail password after a few failed attempts? But i assume you are unable to type that either?

Use android device manager to get past your password, then you will be able to access menus and change the language.

You can Hack the screenlock password by typing this from terminal:

$ adb shell
$ rm /data/system/gesture.key
