    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.
    VIDEO PROOF SHOT BY ME ON AN UNROOTED EPIC 4G.

    (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...
