iRulu 10.1" Model AX105 with Android 4.2

Unlocking the Screen

The iRulu has several methods of locking the screen so that others cannot view or change your data. These include:

  • Slide Lock
  • Gesture (is that the term they use?)
  • PIN or password



The Slide Lock

The "Slide Lock" is the default lock used on the iRulu.

To unlock the iRulu:

  • put your finger on the (closed) lock in a small circle that you see on the right side of the screen
  • the small circle will expand to a fairly big circle,
  • on the right of that fairly big circle you will see an open lock in a smaller circle, and to the left of that fairly big circle you will see a camera in a smaller circle
  • drag the closed lock towards either of the small circles
  • at some point, the circle toward which you are dragging the lock will become highlighted
  • drop the lock on the highlighted circle
    • if you drop it on the open lock, the system will be unlocked
    • if you drop it on the camera, the camera(s) will be enabled (but the system will otherwise remain locked)
    • if you drag the closed lock outside the big circle and drop it with neither small circle highlighted, the camera(s) will be enabled (but the system will otherwise remain locked)


When I first got the iRulu and powered it up, I hadn't read anything about how to unlock the system, but I had seen other people use their fingers to drag icons on things like smartphones.

So, while experimenting:

  • at some times, I simply touched the digital clock icon on the left side of the screen and dragged it to the right. A fairly large + sign appeared. If I pressed the + sign, the system was unlocked. (Is that a bug?)
  • at some other times, I dragged the closed lock outside the circle expanded circle without paying attention to highlighting one of the smaller circles. Every time I did that, the cameras were enabled but the system remained locked.

Gesture (is that the term they use?)

PIN or Password
