1. Android Central Question's Avatar
    My S20fe just got a forced update to Android 11 and UI3.0 and immediately locked me out of my phone. The update happened while I was asleep and I was unable to unlock my phone when I woke up. I had set a pattern and PIN as my lock screen. I could enter the pattern and it simply said it wasn't correct and gave me the try again countdown to wiping the phone. It never asked for my pin so I was screwed there. The phone ended up wiping itself killing everything.

    After the phone finished it's wipe I tried to set the lock screen and I keep getting the message that it was already changed. Internet search shows that this same thing happened about a year ago to another group of Samsung phones. Is there a work around or magic button sequence to reset things or am I just out of luck setting up a lock screen until a patch comes out?

    Try factory reset in recovery, see if it will take you to set-up screen to enter everything again.

    Welcome to Android Central! Has this always been your phone, or did it used to belong to anyone else? Was it rooted?
