    I think the only way is to restore the iPad using iTunes and not selecting a backup...

    Not possible to override. If there were a way to override, there wouldn't be much point in having it to begin with.

     

    Restore your iPad with iTunes from your iPad's backup. The Passcode Lock is not included with the iPad's backup.

    Hi.

     

    It's been a week and you've probably solved the issue, but here goes a detailed "for dummies" step by step. Might help another (aham) loser (wink) — how do you think I learned this? At  the password loser's list, of course #LOL.

     

    Quoting Alan Sampson — and agreeing with:

    Not possible to override. If there were a way to override, there wouldn't be much point in having it to begin with (...) The Passcode Lock is not included in the iPad's backup.

     

     

    You'll need to do a full backup—reset—restore of your iPad via iTunes. (a) Plug in and, if it doen't start automatically, run iTunes, (b) back up your iPad, (c) do a total reset, (4) restore this last backup.

     

    If this is enough, just go ahead and do it.

     

    Otherwise, do like me — dummy — and read the excerpt from Apple's KB below:

    If you cannot remember the passcode, you will need to restore your device using the computer with which you last synced it. This allows you to reset your passcode and resync the data from the device (or restore from a backup). 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.
