How can I unlock my R100 or T301 if I forgot the pattern?

Here is an example lock pattern screen for a Cruz Reader, prompting you to "Draw pattern to unlock".

The Lock Pattern is a security feature of the Reader's Android 2.0 operating system. You cannot unlock it if you do not know the unlock pattern or have forgotten it.

By design, this security feature prevents access to your device and there is no way to circumvent it without applying a firmware update.

Applying the Firmware Update (R100 or T301) will wipe the ROM partition and install a factory image. This means starting over to some extent. You will need to reconfigure your email, Wi-Fi, and reinstall your apps, but your app data (eBooks, music, etc.) on the SDCARD storage will not be affected.
