    Hi All,

    I have a jailbroken IP4 on iOS 5 firmware. I was playing around with tweaking my phone after watching a youtube cydia video. It was about the AndroidLock XT or something. I was trying to make my lock slide invisible so that it looks better showing the entire photo on my lock screen. I failed to remember my old slide pattern :(

    Everything is working good in my phone...but now I can't get into my phone because I can't remember my android pattern. I think I also have my passcode on (which I do remember).

    What needs to be done now? my phone is useless at the moment! :(

    I'm searching online and need help. Do I need to restore my phone? and if so, how do I make sure I do it the right way? My phone is Jailbroken.... I am backing it up in iTunes right now.

    Any help appreciated greatly.

    power off phone, than reboot while holding volume-up, the phone will boot in safe-mode, now in cydia you can remove the tweak you installed and than reboot normally.

    Only if it is a Cydia hack preventing their access
