Unlocking tivax mitraveler using Fedora Linux

ok, suppose your tivax mitraveler is locked, you entered a locking pattern and are unable to remember it. Do this


yum install android-tools

2- plug the tabled, and lsusb:

Bus 003 Device 004: ID 18d1:0003 Google Inc.

good.. my tablet is 18d1:0003

3- Edit /etc/udev/rules.d/51-android.rules (it should be present, if not, copy it from /usr/share/doc/android-tools/51-android.rules to /etc/udev/rules.d/)

4- look for 18d1, there should be several lines including 18d1:

# adb protocol on grouper/tilapia (Nexus 7)
SUBSYSTEM==”usb”, ATTR{idVendor}==”18d1″, ATTR{idProduct}==”4e42″, MODE=”0600″, OWNER=”eperez”

# fastboot protocol on grouper/tilapia (Nexus 7)
SUBSYSTEM==”usb”, ATTR{idVendor}==”18d1″, ATTR{idProduct}==”4e40″, MODE=”0600″, OWNER=”eperez”
# adb protocol on manta (Nexus 10)
SUBSYSTEM==”usb”, ATTR{idVendor}==”18d1″, ATTR{idProduct}==”4ee2″, MODE=”0600″, OWNER=”eperez”

5- add near there your tablet.. (0003)

# adb protocol on tivax
SUBSYSTEM==”usb”, ATTR{idVendor}==”18d1″, ATTR{idProduct}==”0003″, MODE=”0600″, OWNER=”eperez”

of course remember the OWNER will change in your case.

Then plug the tablet again, and do this:

service adb start

adb shell

cd /data/system


you will find a file named: gesture.key, delete it and then re-create it empty:

rm gesture.key

touch gesture.key

exit adb shell by pressing CTRL+d

Go gack to your tablet, type/press/draw any pattern and you will be able to login.
