All your personal data like contacts, memos, notes, etc. will be erased. Your added apps will be lost also, the only apps will be there after resetting are the per-installed apps that came with the Tab when you first purchased it.

Can't get into an LG tablet. It appears to be a 7 inch model. I tried about 10 different codes that are supposed to be "common codes". Only 5 more attempts available.

I have no pin on an LG tablet. No Google account associated either. I am told I need to reset. I held the power key & down button & got "Recovery trying or something like that. I did get an attempt to recover, but it said that recovery failed. I once briefly saw a safe mode but it quickly changed before I could do anything. I am attempting this for a friend who buys abandoned cars or whatever. The tablet was in the car.

Hi, my daughter set a pin password to protect her tablet from her siblings. Now, she can't remember the pin. No "forgot your pin" option comes up and we do not want to restore the device to factory settings. This is utter devastation for a 10 years old. Is there any other way to reset it or get around it?
