Help - EPad 10" Android 2.1 - pattern lock stuck at login


Wednesday 27th of April 2011 / talkandroid.com
I need help with my epad 10". I think it's by MID and I got it a few weeks ago. It's running 2.1 and it did not have the OEM option to put in a signon password or patternWhat happened is I was able to download from the android market through the epad itself a widget that enabled the draw pattern to unlock. Well upon rebooting the tablet, I can get to the first screen, which by OEM settings is the "slide to unlock", what should come next is then the "draw pattern" screen should appear, but it doesn't. So I can't get past the slide to unlock screen, as it button slides and the screen hangs. I can't figure out how to do a factory reset/wipe. I can reset the epad by the pinhole on the side, but it just reboots again to the same stuck point.

[Tasker] setting up a 'Wifi At Home' profile


Wednesday 11th of January 2012 / androidforums.com
I just installed Tasker, and am trying to set up my first profile - turning Wifi on when I get home / turning it off when I leave the house.I have read "Location Without Tears", and am following the instructions at Turn On WiFi at Home - Tasker Wiki to set up this profile.The problem is, I can't get the first context to work, specifically the "Get Fix". Before launching Tasker I turn on my GPS. Then, in the Location context, when I click the blue-circlish icon in the bottom-right corner, which I can only presume means "Get Fix" as the instructions do not specify, the following error appears: Error: no location providers enabled and available. I have 'Net' ticked on, GPS ticked off, and the radius set to 500m.Also, a related question - how do I specify an exit condition for a profile in Tasker?

automatically disable screen lock at home or work


Monday 21st of October 2013 / forums.androidcentral.com
I believe this is an "Android" question rather than specific to my devices, but please correct me if I'm wrong. Short version: is there a simple setting that will automatically disable my screen lock when I'm at home or at work? If not a setting, is there an app you recommend? Long version: I'm fairly new to "devices". I got my first, a wifi-only Samsung tablet about 6 months ago and use it sporadically, mostly when traveling, but also it's become my semi-permanent music player at home. I got my first smart phone, a MotoX about 2 weeks ago. Love the MotoX and feel it's exceptionally well designed, easy to configure, and useful, but I have nothing to compare it to other than my wife's IPhone 5. I have done a web search for this information. I have also searched and scanned around these forums, but didn't find anything I felt comfortable with in terms of how fussy or current the set up steps are or how current the app recommendations are. The two apps I've come across are, IIRC, called "Delayed Lock (trial or paid)" and "Unlock with WiFi". My que

Disable Pattern Lock with Home Wifi need root?


Sunday 09th of February 2014 / forums.androidcentral.com
Hi All, I'm loving my Nexus 5, my first Android phone. I use Pattern Lock. I want to disable Pattern Lock when I'm at my home wifi. I did some research and it looks like apps can only turn off Pattern Lock when the phone is rooted. Is this true? I don't want to root my phone and I'd rather not have to enter Pattern Lock a hundred times a day. Any options? Thanks! Advait
