    Need help pls.. daughter has locked Lepan

    Hi everyone. Have a little problem.. my daughter has changed the pattern to unlock her TC970, and cannot remember it. She is now locked out. Wife tried to do a manual reset and popped up firmware is bad. We saw the firmware 4626 thread which is supposed to fix this, and have downloaded both root files to the pc. When we hook up the usb it adds device E, but the instructions say... "Connect the Tablet to your PC via the USB Cable and select Turn on USB Storage. The MicroSD card will become available as a drive letter on your PC"... not sure what the turn on USB Storage is. When I try to access drive E it says install disk. The tablet gives no option to "turn on storage" as it is locked. We are stuck.

    Tried the reset button on the back of the tablet... resets and goes right back to you have made too many tries... locked out.


    Help pls!!

    do a manual reset.
    from tablet off remove sd card

    move screen lock slider to left
    press and hold volume down
    press and hold power button
    wait...
    splash screen should start
    release power button
    release volume down
    this should start the tablet in manual mode.
    use volume up and down to get to factory reset option
    slide screen lock right and then left to select.
    this should reset the tablet to new out of the box condition all apps and personal data will have to be reinstalled

    You don't have to take it out necessarily. But the error you mentioned "firmware is bad" is an indication that your sdcard was not properly seated or there is something wrong with the card. So just take it out until you get the tablet working again. Then you can put it back in.

    I have heard that the Le Pan will only read a 2gig card for a system update.

    You followed the directions exactly from the Factory Reset (manual mode) listed above. Including
    "Wipe data/factory reset",?
