I was wondering how you can get by the unlock code on the ipad?
Did you steal one?
No forget the unlock code!
you ask the owner for the code? and return his ipad to him while you're at it
I've heard that if you hook it up to the computer you last synced with, there is a way to get by or reset the passcode. Not sure about the details, as I've never set a passcode on my iDevices.
Lol. Stealing is wrong.
Well if there is no limit to the number of times you can try, you can brute force it:
Assuming it's the simple 4-digit one:
10^4 = 10000 combinations. If you start now, do 500 a day, that's like 3 weeks.
It wouldn't take anywhere near that amount of time. 1 code every 2 seconds = 5.5 hours at most
Realistically, you can't. Plug it back into your computer, use iTunes to restore it back to factory settings, then set up your stuff on it again.
Doesn't it make your restore the device after 10 consecutive wrong tries?
Just a note, you have to do it from DFU mode, without the code it won't let you do a normal restore.
I was talking about doing it by hand. It could takes minutes if automated.
I could be wrong, but I believe that after a certain number of wrong attempts it will increase the time you have to wait before you can enter another code. That effectively limits any ability to brute force it.
+1 stealing iDevices is a big no-no
Cmon we all forget our passcodes
If you stole it, recommend returning to owner. But since you probably won't cause screw that noise iPad rules, just put to DFU mode and restore.
If it's your friend's and you just want to use it and he says no...can't help ya. Just ask him nicely.
But to hook it to a computer, he'd have to 'find' a PC, and then 'borrow' some neighbors' wifi if it needs to restore to iTunes.
If he's legit, I feel for you, but come on, only 4 digits, and you know most people use too-easy-to-remember passwords, esp 4 digit one. most 'real' passwords are at least 6 or 7 and require a number and maybe an upper case.
try entering your IQ individually in each box and use those 4 digits. ha! I kid the 'macrookie'. It's a joke post.
My iPad 2 locked up and asked for a passcode without me setting one. I just reboot it a couple time and it went away
