    ipad 2 restriction password recovery with Ubuntu ?

    Hallo Altruistic and or Empathic Ubuntu People,

    yes, I also got an Ipad 2. Forgot the Restrictions password. A 4-digit code.

    Is it possible to retrieve it from the Ipad Preferences folder (It should be in this file : SBParentalControlsPin) using my laptop running 12.04 LTS WITHOUT using Wine or equivalent ?

    Thanks in advance,

    Tomaasj

    I don't believe you'll be able to access anything on the locked iPad from Linux or any OS for that matter.

    I did a quick search to see if I could find anything for you, but all I really came up with was a few links involving already having a backup in iTunes on Mac OS X or Windows. You might just have to bite the bullet and use iTunes (on another computer, of course) to restore the iPad.

    If you happen to have a backup of the iPad on a computer, I did find this link:

    Yes, without a backup, the only way to get rid of the 4 digit pin is to run a restore from a computer with iTunes installed. Luckily for you, at least that WILL solve your problem.
