I've read through the many posts about being locked out of a tablet/phone, but haven't found one where the forgot password / forgot pattern option is missing.
I haven't used my Asus TF700T tablet for a couple of months and have forgotten the pattern unlock. After attempting a few times, I get the standard "you have incorrectly drawn your unlock pattern xx times". However, there are never any on-screen options for "forgot password" or "forgot pattern" or similar.
I've tried Google's device manager site: https://www.google.com/android/devicemanager however, I did not set up this tablet to be remotely locked (shame, because apparently I set up my phone to use the service).
I've also gone to the Asus device tracker site: http://devicetracker.asus.com/ and entered the serial number, but the site fails with a "command failed" response. (fwiw, I verified the serial number).
In summary, I have tried the pattern unlock 65+ times and still do not get a forgot password or similar prompt. And the tablet is associated with a Google account and the Google play store.
Short of performing a factory reset, is there a way to force the "forgot password" prompt to login to the tablet?
