    Hi Gurus,

    I would like to clear cache from recovery but on booting to recovery my unlock pattern doesn't work. I tried changing my pattern but that didn't work either (but I am able to login to the main OS without any issue)

    I raised a bug and the ever friendly Jefferson suggested that I do a factory reset as it may be an issue with my device alone. Since I can't login to recovery, I went to Settings->System->Reset Options->Erase all data (factory reset).

    Even after this I am unable to enter into recovery using a pattern. On changing my phone unlock method to Pin from pattern I'm still being asked to enter a pattern to access recovery.

    I again did a reset by clicking on Forgot Password in recovery but same issue.

    Is there a "deeper" form if reset which I can try?

    P.S. I am using Stock Recovery and am running OOS latest Open Beta without root

    Received help on the Unofficial Telegram group.

    I had to change security settings to just swipe after which I was able to access recovery. In recovery I was asked to enter my now old pattern.

    I suspect the issue maybe due to me having work profile.
