    Welcome to the forums, Michael. What you probably mean is "usb debugging", not debunking. To access that you need to access the device and enable the mode from the system settings. Since you are locked out this is not accessible.

    So you know, a Factory Reset may be the only option. Data stored on the internal sd card is not erased as a result, so don't worry about losing anything stored there. You'll lose all the other data, i.e. apps, messagings and anything not sync'd with Google.

    If there is a particular thing you are trying to preserve let us know and we'll see what we can do (if anything) to save that data.
