How to Get or Remove the Android Lock for your iPhone, iPad, or iPod.

The Android Lock is a cool Screen lock that can also be set on your iDevice if it has been jailbroken. Many of you might already be familiar with the common Android lock which is present in all Android Devices. Not many Apple developers like to copy off features from Android, but thsi screen lock is awesome and is a must try for those who are bored of typing that 4 digit code into their iPhone screen lock.
It looks like:

Follow the steps below to learn how to get it.
  1. Open up Cydia. You need to have your device jailbroken to have Cydia. You won't have to add any extra Repository as its from Big Boss, which already comes built in Cydia.
  2. Search for Android Lock. I suggest you download Android Lock XT which will be in the list. Android Lock XT is a smooth version which works on almost all software versions of iOS. Wait for the download to complete.
  3. After the download completes, open settings. Scroll down a bit and you will see Android Lock written there. You then set the pattern you like twice and then it saves. Lock your phone and check it out.
Awesome right?

How to Remove the Android Lock:

What if you forget your Android Lock? Many people get locked out of their devices because of forgetting their pattern. Try the following two ways of breaking into your device.
Hard Reboot:
Do a hard reboot. Connect your device to your PC or Mac with the USB cable and hold the home and power button for 30 seconds. The device will shut down and reboot itself. This may take a few moments though. You will have access to your iDevice and will be able to turn off the Android Lock. If you have an untethered jailbreak then you will have to jailbreak your device again. But you're lucky because if you have a tethered jailbreak you will not be able to jailbreak again due to software problems.

Answering A Phone Call ( iPhone )
This method only works for iPhone as you have to break into your device during a phone call. Call your iPhone with a different mobile and answer the call. During the call is going on, press the home button. Do not end the call though or else the password will appear again. During the call go to settings and into Android Lock. Disable Android Lock and then end the call. The password will be gone!

That's what the Android Lock is all about. If this article helped you then help us by sharing the article using the buttons above the post or by liking our Facebook Page.
