Hi,

Haven't used this device before. If the warm boot didn't help, have you tried the cold boot option? check this link for steps

Forgotten/lost your AppCenter password for your Motorola device? First, try "symbol" as a password - this is the default for AppCenter - it might save you a little time!


If "symbol" doesn't work, dock your device to your PC using Microsoft ActiveSync and click the "Explore" button to browse the files on the device.
Navigate to the "\Application" folder and locate the "AppCenter.reg" file. Copy this file to your machine and open with notepad. If this file does not exist on your device, you will need to copy all the registry files onto your machine, then open each file in turn in notepad and look for the following entry;
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Symbol\AppCenter]
Beneath this registry entry there will be two GUIDs.They will look something like this;
"{B6235F29-5B71-4389-A0A6-ACF2758AC1DC}"=hex:00,00,00,00
"{2EACC9DF-C9BF-428E-9074-D50B57D0D747}"=hex:2F,00,2A,00,22,00,24,00,3B,00,3C,00,73,00,52,00,07,00,1E,00,17,00,3C,00,2B,00,35,00,27,00,25,00,16,00,0A,00,3C,00,3D,00,0D,00,2F,00,3E,00,25,00,37,00,21,00,08,00,06,00,19,00,11,00,0C,00,57,00
Remove these two entries from your registry file and save it.
Copy the registry file back to the device in the "\Application" folder.
Cold boot the device. (Usually press and hold the 1 & 9 keys then press the power button.)
The device should now boot and the default password of "symbol" should now be active

Warning: if the user files are encrypted, this method will break encryption and the files will be inaccessible.

Otherwise, Windows passwords are extremely easy to break thanks to offline tools such as this nifty, no-frills, bootable Linux command line program called Chntpw that rewrites the SAM registry (used to store Windows password hashes, etc.).

Use Chntpw to erase the admin password. Login with no password.

No attachment found. Also please ignore above solution with chntpw, it doesn't apply to you and you may even unnecessarily break stuff.

My apologies. @Kimputer is correct. My solution above can be ignored as it was for Desktop Windows OS, not Windows CE.
