    I got a new screen today from the repair store, but i cannot access my Phone since i have to wait more than 30.000 minutes before i can re-enter my keypad password.
    Apparently, it is possible that the broken glas has triggered this too many times.
    I don't want to do a hard reset, I know my code, but i don't want to wait a couple of weeks before i can access my Phone. Is there a solution?

    Unfortunately even if you know your password, you'll have to wait several weeks to enter it unless you do a hard reset.

    No, hard reset it is. This is a security feature to prevent someone from stealing your phone and subsequently accessing your data and programs.
