    Password Rest Help

    I'm trying to help a non techie friend.....He locked his A200 with a password, but now when he tries to enter the password he set up he can't get back in. I asked if when he set up the password it prompted him to enter it in twice for confirmation to ensure it was not a typo, but he claims he was only prompted to enter it in once. I have never seen an kind of password set up that does not require a confirmation input - but since I did not see him enter it I have to take his word for it. Can anyone confirm that this is the case with this device?.... Not sure how to help, I do not think I can root and flash another rom without getting into the device to enable usb debug......Any ideas?

    -BTW I know for a fact the device is his and not stolen

    I would make a factory reset. Then, the password protection should be deleted.

    Power off the tablet, turn screen lock off. Hold Vol+, and start tablet, wenn it vibrates, keep holding Vol+, and turn screen lock on and off quickly, until there comes message "erasing userdata".

    I believe Velos is right, that it's the only way to get around it.

    Thank you.
    I will give that a try......at this point he just wants to get back in, I don't think he is going to mind losing the data on there.

    from the Acer ics manual

    "After five wrong entries, you can reset
    your unlock pattern. Tap Forgotten
    pattern? and enter your Google account
    username and password.

    Note: You must have an active
    Google account on the tablet and
    an Internet connection.
    If this option is not available please
    contact you local Acer service center."

    This is from the manual (if you do not have one, d/l it from the Acer site....acer.com>support>downloads>tablets>a200... ....since you are not connected to the Inet, and a factory reset does not work...looks like it is service ctr time!
    Good Luck
