Bypass lock pattern
Got the notification for the new update and hit download. So far so good. The phone reboots once complete and asks for the unlock pattern. Suddenly I don't remember it. My fingerprint is still good, but the phone won't take it without the pattern. I tried google/android/find, but the service can't locate my phone (even though it's on the same network as the computer). I've spent hours trying different variations (with the mandatory wait between attempts steadily rising) and searching the internet for any way to accept a fingerprint or get past the unlock pattern without a factory reset.
Most of my files are on the SD card, but during a previous update, the camera reverted to saving on the internal memory, and it was several months before I noticed. I really don't want to lose those pictures or all of my contacts.
