General :: LG Optimus V - Set Boot Password Like BIOS Password On PCs?

May 1, 2012

I'm new to android but just used the guides at this forum to root my LG Optimus V. I was wondering if now that I have root there is a way to install a boot password similar to the one I have on my computer. Before it loads the operating system, the BIOS asks for a password. Is there any similar functionality for android?

Also, is this possible on other devices even if it is not on mine? It's one of my favorite laymen security measures.

HTC Droid Eris :: Password Screen Locks And When Asks For User Name And Password It States Invalid User Name / Password

Mar 3, 2010

I have had this same problem happen twice to me on 2 different phones on 2 different Verizon accounts!

The password screen locks and when it asks for the user name and password it states invalid user name / password!

Is this a known problem since when I called and talked to both Verizon and HTC the only thing they could tell me was to do a hard reset and they weren't aware of this problem?

General :: Set Up Hboot Password?

Dec 4, 2011

is it possible to set up a Hboot password, or if currently not, is it achievable? We all know the PC's BIOS can be password protected, and Hboot is rather like Android BIOS.

The reason Im asking is that since almost all new phones have sensor keys for menu, back, etc (instead of physical buttons), that cannot be used during boot, a thief who wants to install a new ROM on a stolen device can go only through Hboot with power/volume down, instead of jumping straight to recovery (power/menu) or fastboot like on my old MT3G, for example. Therefore, a Hboot password option would make stolen phones extremely difficult to crack, and would require way more than just average user knowledge how to flash a ROM.

General :: Pop Up For Handset Password Change?

Dec 6, 2012

My wife has a D3, tonight she got a pop up warning her that her handset password will expire in 14 days with choices to remind her later or change the password. I've never seen this pop up on any android phone we've had. She does use the native Email app on her corporate account, so this may be due to that. I usually use Touchdown, so my phones haven't needed password protection for unlock.

General :: Decryption Password Not Working?

Dec 30, 2013

I encrypted my LG Optimus G E970 using the option in cyanogenmod under security. It prompted me for a pin using a keypad, and I carefully entered a 4 digit pin. At the end of the encryption process, it rebooted and promted me with "Enter password to decrypt storage." Instead of a pin, there was a text box and full android keyboard. I entered my pin, and it said "Try Again." It did not lock me out at all for any amount of time no matter how many passwords I tried. I tried rebooting it, and had the same problem. If I leave the device on without typing in a password, it makes a clicking sound after a minute or so every ten seconds. I can't factory reset in TWRP because it can't mount /data.

General :: Resetting Screen Look Password?

Mar 22, 2012

I use Password for screen unlock (digits and letters). I changed yesterday night and now I totally can't remeber the combination.There is no option like pattern unlock to enter the google account password to unlock! even after doing 100 trial.

I really don't want to do a hard reset.I'm rooted and debugging mode is active

I tried doing this adb command but it didn't work as it appear for pattern lock;

Quote:

./adb shell
# sqlite3 data/data/com.android.providers.settings/databases/settings.db
sqlite> update system set value=0 where name='lock_pattern_autolock';
sqlite> update system set value=0 where name='lockscreen.lockedoutpermanently';[code]....

that command to work with password lock instead of pattern lock ?

General :: Unable To Boot LG Optimus G Into Recovery

Mar 28, 2014

I'm having trouble booting my LG Optimus G into recovery mode. I've rooted the phone and installed ClockworkMod recovery. When I try to boot into recovery, either from the ROMmanager app or by holding Volume Up and Power, it comes up with the LG logo and gives this error: Secure Booting Error! Cause: boot certification verify. It just stays like that until I press and hold the power button again until the phone shuts off entirely. Then I'm able to boot into the stock operating system and the phone works fine, but I can never get it to boot into recovery.

The error I mentioned above seems to be a well documented error on the internet, but it seems like other people that are having the trouble are completely bricking their phones. Mine is able to come out of it. All the solutions I'm finding pertain to a phone that's completely bricked and involve taking the phone back to stock. My phone works fine with the stock ROM, but I'd like to play with some custom ROM's.

General :: Restore Boot Animation To LG Optimus L9

May 20, 2014

I own an LG Optimus L9 from T-Mobile. A few months ago, I rooted it and installed the Jarvis boot animation, complete with a Jarvis start up sound.

I started having issues with my phone, so I performed a factory reset. However, the boot animation is still the Jarvis one. I need to send the device in for a repair, and I need it back to the original boot animation (one where there was white and pink squares that did a wave animation, along with the T-Mobile jingle.)

General :: Only Dial Screen After Applying Password?

Apr 6, 2014

I have just bought a Motorola Moto G and am waiting for a simm from free.fr to arrive. That's a week of waiting! I have been looking through the various bits on the phone and decided to put a password on it. I have done this on all of my previous, simple, phones with no problems, but now that I have done it on the MG all I can get is the phone dial screen. No pptions for any apps, settings, etc. Just the dial screen.

I have tried the factory reset using the power/volume buttons but when I get to the second selection, with the 'distressed android' showing I don't get any options with it, just the android.
