Hello all! Long time lurker, first time poster! Hopefully this post will help some people out.
I just bought a used 930 off craigslist and low and behold there is a password..
I've been searching around for the past few hours trying to figure out away to clear/reset the password on this unit.. This is what I came up with..
1a) Send the unit off to pioneer and spend the xxx amount of money --OR--
--WARNING: I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR WHAT YOU DO!!--
1b. Go here: http://avic411.com/i...dated-13062011/
a. Grab the test mode files and load it up on the sd card and head over to the head unit..
b. Insert card and load up test mode.. Go to the file manager -> User -> system -> security -> password and do a Text dump of this file.. (thanks to user: odskaggs2 for the hint!)
c. write down the what is on the screen.. This is the password!!! =D
(P.S. I almost did'nt post this, but I figured if someone wants my head unit, what good will it be to me if I have a password or not? It's gone either way.)
