Hi, I broke my Jolla touchscreen, so it doesn't recognize any input anymore. I can just connect to it via wifi and open a ssh session. Is there a way to remove my devicelock (I know my lock code) via ssh, so I can connect via usb to my phone too??

the problem is that my touchsreen is broken, so I can't do any input. By the way, I solved using "/usr/lib/qt5/plugins/devicelock/encpartition --clear-code"

While this seems like a great solution, is this possible without sudo access? ow it would make a great hack.
