    I was trying different patterns to have a very secure lock in my Android phone. At one moment I just forgot what the last pattern was. I'm locked out. I had set the phone not to block itself out after all password tries, so I do get phone calls, and can see the leds for emails, sms, whatsapp, etc., and I must have tried 1,000 times now, to no avail.

    I have a BLU Life Pure XL (3GB Ram, 32GB internal disk), running on Android 4.2.2 Jellybean. Non-removable battery.

    After the 5th failed try, there is no dialogue asking for Google account. There's also no option for a numeric password. In fact, there's pretty much no other option than to wait 30 seconds and try another set of 5 failed attempts.

    Phone has not been debug set.

    If the only option is to do a factory reset, how can that be done? Owners manual does not provide information on how to reset the device.

    1) Switch off your handset.
    2) Then press and hold together Volume Down + Menu button + Power button until you see menu of Recovery mode.
    3) Choose option "wipe data/factory reset" using Volume buttons to scroll, and Power button to confirm.
    4) Select "Yes -- delete all user data".
    5) Afterwards press Power button to enter "reboot system now".

    That's all.
    *****WARNING!! HARD RESET WILL DELETE ALL YOUR DATA!*****
