TABLET LOCKED

    Kid has locked GoClever TAB 75 Android 4.0.3 with pattern: can't bloody remember email address either :mad: I know I know.. and no, I haven't stolen it :o

    Have held in reset 'button' on rear with paper clip for min, all that happens is that it switches off...

    Am thinking I may just have to really drain the battery for a few days see if it resets to default.. anyone got any better ideas?


    Cheers

    The kids would have had to input the same pattern twice, can they not remember?

    The email should be gmail iirc, how many can you have?

    There may be a way to remove it if you can find the official firmware and reflash the device with it. It may also be possible to use the method explained here also, just download the Android SDK & Debugging Bridge (adb)
