    while holding volume up, and camera hold power to get to recovery mode on the phone and do a factory reset/wipe cache this should remove the unlock pattern and reset the phone back to factory stock. Hope this helps if it does please hit thanks button

    I believe its already at factory stock. But i dont know. This has never been rooted or rommed. Will this procedure still work if its already factory stock? Is there a rom tool like fastboot or something to start from scratch and root it and also recovery to flash a rom? Thanks

    Do not use any of the root tools from the market!


    Everyone who tires this ends up bricking there phone!!!


    If you want to root the phone and put a rom on it you can just download the AreaRom v2.3 and the Odin install.

    I have a A1CS FUSION5 Tablet PC - 10.1" Screen - Android 4.0 ICS which is locked
    Screen is locked, Cannot log in via Google email account, as can't connect via WiFi. Tried USB but unable to go online via that connection. Also locked out by too many pattern attempts! Any ideas. Tried a reset - same problem:mad:

    Clearing the cache (as in PoorBoy's post) should fix the pattern lockout.

    Once you clear that you should be able to set up the Google account and connect to your wifi signal.
