    Default Epic 4G 2.2.1 Lock Screen Exploit

    Epic 4G 2.2.1. updated today, with an unlock pattern in-place. Have not tested with other lock types.

    The phone is Locked.
    You receive a phone call.
    You answer.
    THEN:
    You press quickly a bunch of times on the HOME key and YOU'RE IN THE PHONE!

    REALLY!?!?! REALLY!?!?!?

    We all waited until Feb 21, 2011 for a poorly tested Froyo build?

    Really.

    (sorry but in my rush the Video is sideways)

    Do your thing Lloyd!

    So if you find a lost phone, how do you get the number to call it?

    I was able to send text i was able to see all the pics and even mail one to my other email all i had to do was leave the call open so yes its a bad bug that needs to be addressed you have full use of the device while the call is open...

    Mistakes happen I guess. Plus really if someone takes your phone how likely are they going to do this? I agree though. They really should work on this issue regardless...
