  6.  In aroma File manager , Go to menu, which is located in bottom strip and then select Settings
  7. Go to bottom n select “mount all partition in startup ” then exit from aroma file manager
  8. Now after exit, re-update that aromafile again and it will open again
  9.  Go to data >> and then System.Then find ‘gesture.key’ (for pattern lock) and ’password.key’ (for password lock) then long touch on gesture.key or password.key and sum option will be prompted , choose delete and delete that file and restart.
