    I had a pattern password. I forgot it but I still had my biometrics. I didn't realize that when it powered off I couldn't use biometrics the first time I opened it. Is there any way I can open it with my biometrics? Please help

    In short - no.

    To expand on that - device encryption requires that you use some unlock method besides biometrics in order for the phone to be usable after a reboot.
