Most of users lock their mobile by using pattern lock.Pattern lock is a kind of lock in which you have to draw image by connecting  adjacent circles.You can browse your mobile only when you make right pattern.In case you draw wrong pattern ,you are asked to redraw the pattern.

If WiFi or mobile data is Off on your mobile then you can’t authenticate online to unlock your device.You can enable WiFi as well as mobile data by connecting your mobile with Android Debug Bridge (ADB). This method requires USB Debugging feature enabled which is under ‘Developer options’ of your device.

Second solution to overcome “Too Many Pattern Attempts” problem is to format the mobile device.You need to make hard reset of your mobile to overcome pattern lock problem.For most of the Android devices ,you can hard reset the device by pressing POWER + VOLUME + HOME button simultaneously.Please remember that all your data (images ,music files , videos and contacts saved in mobile ) will lost during hard reset and your phone will be restored to factory setting.

  4. Hey, there! I have a 7″ Vido tablet that I bought from DealExtreme. I entered the wrong pattern lock 20 times, and after that, it asked me for my gmail username + password. I entered them correct 6-7 times (even confirmed that they were correct using my mobile phone running on android), but it wouldn’t work. I tried factory reseting by turning on the tablet the with volume up/down button, a blank “recovery” screen appeared, and the tablet restarted, only to ask me for my username and password again (implying that one of ’em were incorrect). Some guy told me to try ADB, but I can’t understand such sophisticated programs :/. Any tips for me?
