The first time this happened my phone was in my pocket and it locked itself out (I was running RC33 version of JFv1.41).  I had pattern lock enabled so i was getting “Too many pattern attempts. please login”

No matter how i put my information in username (by itself), username@gmail.com, username@googlemail.com it wouldn’t authenticate me.No matter what i did i was not able to get in so i just reflashed the phone. After a reflash the authentication worked fine. At that time I was using one of JFs ROMS so i figured that may have been the issue.

Recently the problem happened again. This time i was using one of Cyanogens ROMS. This time instead of flashing the phone i followed haykuro’s thread to defeat pattern lock:

once i did those adb commands and rebooted the phone it asked to authenticate again but this time it worked! After it authenticates it will ask you for a new unlock pattern. And you’re all set!

This is a really annoying problem and im surprised more people aren’t having it.  I hope this helps somebody.

Since getting my Google G1 I’ve done my fair share of tinkering.  I’ve rooted the phone and have tried many different ROMS, the best previously being JesusFreke’s and now Cyanogen’s.  I want to share all the android related material i come across as well.
