Don't know if anyone has had the misfortune to get locked out of their hero by entering the incorrect pattern lock but it happened to me today. Not sure how as the phone was in my pocket but somehow the pettrn was entered wrong multiple times and the pattern lock security kicked in.The first shock was that my Gmail username / password would not unlock the phone and that I was facing a factory reset in order to get access.Apparently this is a known bug but it is not seen as critical by Google.links: - Issue 3006 - android - Google credentials don't unlock phone after failing too many pattern attempts - Project Hosting on Google Code Issue 4784 - android - Google credentials don't unlock phone after failing too many pattern attempts - Project Hosting on Google CodeLosing access to the phone is a massive pain but the real shocker to me was just how easy it was to circumnavigate the security on the phone and get access to everything.If someone nicks your phone and you're expecting the screen pattern to protect you then you're in for a shock. Here's how easy it is for someone to get past
