Question about HTC G1
1. Turn the G1 off. If it’s frozen on, take the battery out and put it back in the unit.
2. Hold the Home and Power keys down at same time for about 25 seconds. You will see a yellow triangle screen with exclamation point in the middle.
Now to wipe the device clean:
3. Press Alt+L.
4. Press Alt+W for a factory reset.
5. Press the Home and Back keys again for about 25 seconds.
The device should then reset again and the hard reset is complete.

The only way to unlock the pattern is by entering your gmail.com user name and password. It can be difficult using the phone trying different combos you might have selected initially so I suggest sitting down at your computer and trying to sign into gmail. If you're gmail account is linked to an alternate email such as yahoo they will send it to you. Good luck! Robert
