Hi Friends,

This is the most common and very critical situation for android users. In this situation unlock android phone after too many failed pattern attempts is very hard to new android users even some time it is very hard to experienced android users to handle this situation.

Here, I am using Samsung Android’s earlier version phone. My kid used to play on my phone. Yesterday, My kid tried to unlock pattern more than 20 times, then it has gone to ‘Too many pattern attempts!’ Screen.

The problem is I haven’t registered my android phone with any google accounts or samsung account. I scared pretty much because it is very pain to recover all contact and other information again. The problem starts here, I tried with google account to unlock screen, but I couldn’t. Finally my friend helped me lot to unlock my android phone after too many failed pattern attempts.

Why I’m here is, this may very strange to some android users. My experience may help them out of it. If you give your android phone in any service center to unlock for this issue, you may lose some Hundreds.

    Well Guys I ve come up with a simple yet effective solution for this great great problem. Just browse google for Moborobo app. Download it on ur PC or lappy, Install it. Now Follow the steps.
    1. Connect ur Android Phone through USB to the PC.
    2. Moborobo will detect ur Device. (Don worry it ll detect Automatically).
    3 Now there are several options, go for Backup/Restore.
    4. Backup the contents u want to, it includes Contacts, Messages as well as Apps.
    5. Once Backup is done check out the backup contents at the file location u ve backed it up. Note u ll not see the exact files like contacts n all, it ll be some sort of windows application. U can Back it up once more in a different folder just for safety.
    6. Now the part which u dint wanted to do. Flash ur Mobile Device.
    7. Switch Off ur Device. Remove the USB cable from the device.
    8. Hold the Volume Up, Home and the Power On/Off Key together for sometime.
    9. The Company Logo will get Displayed still hold the keys together, the company logo ll be displayed again, still hold all the keys till a Black Screen with some options ll appear.
    10.Now u ll see some options in Orange color. Select the Erase all Data/Factory Reset option using the volume up/down key. Press the home or any other select key to start the process. within Seconds the Factory Reset ll be done.
    11. Now again select the Reboot option from the same menu (after Reboot u ll get back to the same Menu)
    12. After Reboot ur device ll get started from fresh.
    13. Now again connect the device to PC/Lappy through USB.
    14. Start Moborobo application. Again it ll detect the device.
    15. After detection go to the options Backup/Restore. Select Restore and the file location where u ve stored the info. Select the data u want to restore, Contacts, Messages n Apps. Then Restore it.
    Browse ur Mobile for the Data U ve Restored. Thats it Enjoy!!!. It took me 3 Days to come up with this solution, but it ll take anyone just 10mins to implement it. So whoever using this technique, after the successful attempt just mail me a thanks quote along with ur result. More Ideas are still Open, if someone comes with a much simpler Idea, everyone ll be thankful. Tousif Iqbal
