WARNING: Do NOT get locked out of your Vita!

38 replies 23746 views Edited Feb 27, 2012

You may have noticed, that when you enter your passcode incorrectly, it says "4 tries remaining." Do NOT use all 4 tries.

I have used all my tries, to see what it would do.

It takes you to a screen EVERYTIME you try to unlock it, even when you reboot the system.

The screen says:

"Cannot unlock the screen.

Please try again later."

It then gives you the following options:

  • "OK"
    • Takes you back to the lockscreen.
  • "Forgot your passcode?"
    • Asks you to restore the system.
    • I suggest NOT using this option.

I'm still locked out of my system from when I made it lock me out. Some have said that it takes 1 hour to get back in, but it is not confirmed. I will let you know when I have the lock time.

I know if you exceed an x amount of tries trying to unlock a phone, the sim card gets fried.

It gives you 5 tries to put it in, seems fair, but the Lockout time is WAY too long, maybe they can give us an option for it..

I did get locked out yesterday because I wanted to see what would happen. It locks the Vita for an hour and then lets you reenter the passcode.

Yeah, that was a really long hour...
