I got an Madcatz MOJO Console, it is good and interesting. But on a day, when I start up the console, it asked me enter a password to unlock home screen, indeed, i don't know what happen since don't have any area for setting password of it. So, at the moment, I can not do anything with this.

You can see my problem in attached picture.

Could anyone pls let me know how to solve the problem.

Thank you so much in advance.

Regards,
Tom

Thank you for your reply.

But problem is when I'm checking on other console, i could not find place to set password for device.

I search on internet to find how to bypass the lock code at home screen, I tried all but unsuccessful since almost methods required root permission.

Luckily, I still connect and debug device via my computer, I tried reboot into recovery, but it only shows the android robot and yellow triangle then stuck.

If like android phone, we can hold volume+power button to show command line in recovery but I couldn't do like this with my console . On console doesn't have any physical button.

I also send an email to support center on Mad catz website but stil not receive any feedaback.

Apologies for the inconvenience. :C

As precaution for others, you can setup the Android Device Manager to remotely lock/reset password for your MOJO -- similar to Find my iPhone on Apple devices. However, it will need to be set up while you still have access to the device.

To set up, go to a http://play.google.com while on a PC, and then go to "Settings > Android Device Manager". Ensure the MOJO is connected online, and then locate the device and choose the "Setup Lock & Erase" option. A notification should pop up on the MOJO. Click on it to finish allowing Android Device Manager access to the device.

Once setup, you'll be able to remotely ring, lock, erase, and reset lock screen password as necessary. More info can be found here:
