    The only way to unlock is to reset it by connecting to a computer's iTunes. You may need to put the iPad into recovery mode :


    If you do it via a computer that it hasn't been synced to then (from here) :

    If you restore on a different computer that was never synced with the device, you will be able to unlock the device for use and remove the passcode, but your data will not be present.
