Hi all,

My requirement is very simple. I want to unlock the phone but not in simple way.
Say a phone is in lock mode and I need to unlock it using my code which may be running in backgournd as a service.

Now user may have locked the phone and to unlock it he might be using patterns or PIN numbers or passwords whatever.
I need to bypass it and launch some activity from my app.
(e.g. Let the phone be in lock mode. Now if I press some button say home or search or back it should unlock the phone.)

First of all let me know is it possible technically?

I have no clue about this.

Please help as early as possible.

Thank you all.
I agree. Here's the link:
