  1. Great! I’d like to try this on my Nexus 5. I’ve forgotten my lock pattern. Please show me how to take the SD card (step 3) from a Nexus 5, and how to access the Play Store with the lockscreen active(step 5).

    Otherwise please stop posting retarded things like this.

  2. All this article really does, is simply show how completely clueless amongtech is. Not mentioning that the steps are inaccurate, but also that this type of thing would ONLY work for rooted phones. But I guess putting the words “on any device” increases traffic to a clueless site
