iPhone 4 Remotely Locked Via "Apple Find My Phone"

Few days ago I was socked to know that somebody has managed to hack into my "Find My iPhone" Apple account and remotely locked my phone using a new passcode (since I was not using one), sadly the old hacks to reset the forgotten iPhone passcode did not work as Apple patched the security hole in newer iOS 5 builds.

I tried using the old-school trick of deleting password files from iPhone raw filesystem (com.apple_.springboard.plist and keychain-2.db) but due to new security features in iOS 5 they did not worked.

Without any solution, I tried many lock codes and luckily "1234" worked for me and my phone got unlocked.

If you are unable to get the unlock passcode, the ONLY option left is to "restore" your iPhone using iTunes.
