You might be wondering if its possible to get back into your locked smartphone without actually factory resetting or flashing it.
Well, its very possible. I have been in situations where factory resetting the phone will cause alot of issues because of the data in the phone.
So I thought of what to do and then this pretty trick came into my mind. After implementing it the first time, its now my most used technique to remove lock on Itel and other spreadtrum phones without losing any of its user data.
I am going to explain it in detail so you wont miss anything. But before then, you might check out this on how to remove pattern lock without flashing your phone. But in this case, your user data will be erased.
