    So i was checking out the Sprint GSII today in the sprint store and it had a screen lock password on it so i figured some punk put a password on there. I proceeded to go into the stock recovery to do a data wipe to get rid of the screen lock to check out the phone. I navigated too the wipe function, confirmed it then... IT ASKED ME TO ENTER IN THE PASSWORD WHILE IN RECOVERY! Like a keyboard came up and everything IN RECOVERY O_o

    If youre familiar with rooting and such, this is very strange. It must mean you can run .apks while in recovery

    The sprint guy actually knew the password, but he thought i broke the phone

    Anyways, just to confirm it wasnt only on the floor model, can someone put on a screen lock password and try to wipe via recovery?

    I can care less about any of that, as nice as it is haha. if this means what i think it does, whole apk GUI's can be made on top of recoveries if we find out how sammy is running the keyboard apk while in recovery.

    In other words nice, fancy, touch enabled recoveries. No more volume button abuse
