My son has a Skytex Primer Pocket, which he put a pattern unlock on. He has completely forgotten it. I've been trying to figure out what I might do. There is nothing of any importance on the device, I'm perfectly willing to do a factory reflash if possible, but I just can't figure out how to do anything. Anyone out there know what to do?

i believe if you enter the incorrect pattern a number of times, you will be allowed to log in with your google account. – Ryan Conrad Jul 17 '12 at 15:54
That works for a standard device, but the Skytex doesn't have google services, and thus you can't use google to unlock it. – PearsonArtPhoto Jul 17 '12 at 16:10

I found that you should be able to do a factory reset by holding the power and home when powering on. There you should have the option to do a factory reset.

What I finally ended up doing was upgrading the firmware. I tried the home/power method, but it just wasn't working for me... Upgrading the firmware instructions are found on their site. It wasn't too hard to do, except for the fact that they don't seem to have signed drivers, which forced me to use a non-64 bit system to do the upgrade.
