Privacy Protection Password after temporarily removing SIM
« on: October 27, 2021, 02:25:20 pm »
Hello all,

I had to remove my SIM from my Cosmo to put it into another phone.
I though I could boot the cosmo without SIM. Well, it asked for my regular unlock PIN, which it accepts, but since then it keeps asking for a Privacy Protection Password and shows the PIN Pad.
I've never set a Privacy Protection Password.
Reinserting my SIM card and booting/rebooting doesn't help.

After days of trying I just tried a factory reset through recovery.
After a very long reboot it asked me for my unlock PIN again and the Privacy Protection Password prompt reappears.

Any tipps, before I ask Planet?

Thanks,
DrW
