it stays there even after reflashing and even after you get it wrong 10 times and it wipes its self. This is why there secure enough for governments. The only real option i can think of is to drop it in water then claim it on insurance, lol.

That would be honest....

Your only option is to type it in wrong 10 times. It will wipe the device and you will lose all of your information but will you will then be able to use the device.
