How to recover Rovio admin password with Linux

  1. Turn off the Rovio
  2. Connect a computer using USB cable with the Rovio
  3. Turn on the Rovio
  4. Look at all devices with something like fdisk -l(you must be root) and locate the Rovio, something like /dev/sdb
  5. Don't try to mount or format it, instead use dd if=/dev/sdb of=/home/user/rovio.dump
  6. Use a hex file editor or simply do strings /home/user/rovio.dump and look at the last 20-30 lines, you should see all the information you need in clear text
