I have to restore an old ipaq which appeared somewhere - so I don't have any idea which model it is, but if necessary I can supply some pictures.
I did a hard reset (calendar + itask + reset button for ten seconds as I read, since there is no switch on the bottom) and the initial Windows Mobile Setup came up. But after performing it, I still need to enter the password.
Is there any kind of default password? tried 0000 and 1234, but this didn't work.
There is no default password. The password screen does not appear after a hard reset, ever, on any model of Pocket PC. So what you did was not a hard reset, it seems. You might try other button combinations, such as pressing the power button while also pressing the soft reset button.
I think I really did a hard reset (only combination that does not start up the device immediately after holding the reset button), but I recognized that there is a BioSwipe solution from Cogent is installed - there seems also to be a fingerprint reader under the button in the middle.
So currently I'm search how to reset this protection.
Any ideas on that?
