How do you Hard Reset back to defaults?
I put on a security App, which locked me out of my Tablet, "Thanks Kaspersky"
When I switch on Tablet, it goes as far as loading a keypad to enter code, Kaspersky say the only way around this is to factory reset, only way I knew was within Android.
Tried reset on rer of unit, but that just soft resets

any help greatly appreciated

The only way I can think of to even maybe get around this is to reflash a new / existing firmware, but I don't know if Kaspersky will still be an issue. In theory it should just re-write over your original file so it shoukld be fine, but you obviously flash anything at your own risk.

Minibeats is probably right. The only way is to flash the old firmware and install a custom one. Roman2025 had some posts on how to tackle this kind of situations and install his firmware. It works on the m1 perfectly. Ask him if it works on the m3.
