Well the nightmare scenario has happened.
Looking to wrap present for 7 year old Daughter and cannot login to AndyPad using password used previously. Stroke gesture I use on all Android devices not being recognised and using google id isn't recognisig credentials.
Is there a way to reset device so that I can re configure and have available for tomorrow.
After initialy configuring I put away in box and opened yesterday to charge up ready for it to be unwrapped tomorrrow. Time and Date is wrong on home screen and I cannot get successfully logged in to reset and use.
At a loss what to try now as with Windows OS I could just reinstall, Kindle I could phone customer services to unlock, and my iPad i could wipe on my PC and re-sync.
What is the equivalent for the AP Pro?
Guys I'm up against it here and would greatly appreciate a miracle!
* If you're using a pin on the lockscreen, and the device already had a Google account synced, you could unlock it by entering wrong pin untill it asks you to reset by Google Account.
* I did some testing for you (wiped my own device successfully heh) by creating a little custom rom. Keep in mind that this will also wipe your installed applications
How this goes is:
1.) Make sure the device is powered off (if you can't get it off due to lock, put a needle in the power reset).
2.) While keeping Volume-Up pressed, plug the device into your PC
3.) If Windows doesn't recognize the tablet, point it to the driver folder (with correct architecture) included in the download
4.) Open RkAndroidTool.exe (As Administrator), and use the following setup:
* Point parameter to the parameter file in Image folder
* Point misc.img to the one in Image folder
5.) Press Run.
Your device should go in recovery mode now & start wiping data. Keep it plugged in until it says 'Charging'. You can now unplug the device and power it on as usual with a clean Android setup.
Hope I helped you out with your christmas present
If you want a full wipe with newest market, you can also flash the stripped rom version in the other thread.
