Recent Blu Update Locks Users out of Their Phones (bleepingcomputer.com)

An Android update that Blu shipped to Blu One Life X2 smartphones yesterday, November 28, has locked people out of their phones. From a report: On forums, Reddit, and Blu’s official Facebook page, users are complaining that after applying the update and rebooting the device, their phone won’t recognize their password, PIN code, or pattern lock, even if users are 100% sure they are entering the correct data. Bleeping Computer has independently verified this bug. “I updated my BLU Life One X2 around 2 hours ago. It asks for a password in order to access Android,” said one of the Blu users facing this problem. “I am completely locked out of my phone. Ever single password used is marked incorrect.” After ten “failed” login attempts, the user’s data is wiped from the device, according to the standard Android OS behavior.
