I was cleaning out some packages from my Sailfish Xperia X today (latest update) and managed to break booting. I noticed that both patchmanager v2 and V3 were installed so I removed v2.

Now when I boot up, I can not unlock the device as there is no unlock screen shown (no keypad to enter unlock code). All I can see is the background image and the top pull-down menu is available (no notifications or unlock). Calls still come through and I can even hear email alerts, so it seems that programs are running in the background and the device has completed booting, but is just not possible to unlock.

I have managed to boot into recovery mode shell and tried moving the patchmanager folder:

chroot /rootfs
cd /var/lib
mv patchmanager patchmanager_dis

This didn't work, when Sailfish boots, it still doesn't present the unlock keypad.

Then I had a look at packages, but not quite sure which to delete:

[root@(none) lib]# rpm -qa | grep patch

I don't see anything intersing in the boot logs.

Does anyone have an idea of how I can get the device unlocked? I'm afraid I'll make it worse if I keep mucking around in the filesystem!
