I've read Recovering from forgotten lock pattern which states that there is an option to disable the lock using my Google account information. However I did not noticed such an option when I entered my password five times wrong. (Although there was also a 20s or 30s delay to complicate brute force attacks.) I use Android 4.0.3 on a Asus Transformer Prime TF201.

Would factory reset work?

    Why do you think, factory reset may not work? It wipes out every custom configurations.. – Android Quesito Mar 22 '12 at 10:02
  • As the device is locked I did not know if I could employ a factory reset. I just guess that there is a key-combination like: volume down + power button or something similar.. I was not sure. – math Mar 22 '12 at 13:04

    Yes.. you can factory reset from recovery mode. How to enter this mode varies as per devices. – Android Quesito Mar 22 '12 at 13:19
