Sometimes hard resetting an Android device isn't the best option to unlock it. However, if your locked phone isn't connected to the Internet, the only option will be to perform a Factory Reset. Note that this will erase all data on the phone.

Are you starting with the tablet turned off? Sometimes you have to attempt the key combinations for a few times or hold the Volume - button longer than you think you should. It is important to hold it until that Recovery Menu appears.

Depending on your tablet, if you are hung up on the Android Man you hit the Volume or Power buttons one more time quickly.

What is the other option if this one didn't work?

I followed the steps to get my tablet to open in Recovery Mode, but it didn't work. What else can I do to open it in that mode? It only has it in Safe Mode and I don't know how to get that off.

You are using the wrong key combination. Reverse the Volume that you did to up or down and that should take you into Recovery.

Do not wait for the Vibration and add Home into your button sequence. Because you did not post exactly what tablet you have, this answer is the best with the information provided. Sometimes installing all new Stock ROM on the tablet or in the case of Polaroid, going to their Southern Telecom website and installing the lasted update.

iRULU Model x7 is requesting a password?

My friend received a brand new iRULU X7 Android tablet. Upon turning it on tablet requested a password which nobody knows. Searching through Internet has not produced a real solution, only that many people have the same problem.

Was this helpful? Yes | No | I need help

First try typing in (null) and seeing if that unlocks the tablet since there should be no Gmail associated to the brand new tablet. In the main VisiHow article you will see a section on using the ADB tools. Unlock your tablet this way if null does not work.

Yes, your internet is not working properly and this is why suddenly all your other devices are not working. You will need to reconfigure your wireless router again as well as probably reset the WiFi password. Use the ADB tools method to unlock the iRULU tablet.

I have tried holding down power and volume up and the only thing that happens is it turns on in safe mode.. I have tried: Power+up volume, wait for vibration, it never happens. Tried pushing up and down, tried holding power and then letting off but keeping volume held in. I think it was caused by: I have no clue

Install new Stock ROM to your tablet or use the ADB method. Perhaps your Volume - button is faulty and this why it is not going into Recovery.

Unable to get the glass top / for the iRULU tablet/ note pad in Mumbai? I need to get it replaced as the existing one has cracked up?

These tablets are inexpensive so look for a generic tablet screen that is the size of your tablet screen. You can try to search online for a retailer that will ship to Mumbai.
