2. Install a custom ROM for your device


You can install a new Custom ROM for your android device. For this you need to root your device. I can’t illustrate the rooting process here because, there are lot and lot of android devices in the market. Rooting tool and procedure for all these devices are different.

I Rooted and installed custom ROM for Galaxy Y and Galaxy Ace of my two friends when they forget their Gmail username and password. Do this only if the warranty ended and you have an accurate confidence about the procedures.

You will get the rooting tools and Custom ROM’s for your device by simply Google it. If you are doing it with in warranty period, warranty will breaks up. Also new Custom ROM’s will give your mobile a new look.



3. Return it to the customer care



If you have the problem in warranty period, kindly return it to the customer care office. They will reset it by their own procedures. It will be cost free also.
