Hi,
I have just upgraded my Note2 to 4.4 - clean install. I have mostly set it up, when I noticed i requires PIN for storing a VPN connection or a CA certificate. However I was used to the gesture lock screen, but pin makes it harder to access while driving and other activities, so it's definitely not appreciated.

I have read some forums, and the general answer was to simply clear the credentials, but I want to keep my CA certificates, and my VPN connections, I just don't want this kind of security. I have also tried this: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2253123 but with no success - Sqlite manager can not find table locksettings (the other two are shown).

So, can anyone help me with this? I am definitely not using PIN, I'd rather set up some enormous timeout, which really is questionable from security point of view, but still better for me than typing that st*pid PIN each time.
