[NTLK] Brainwipe a locked down e300 tip: Select all built-in apps.

I did the "brain wipe" last night on my e300 which was also still in student mode.

One pointer: As you walk through the setup prompts, watch for the installed applications screen. By default, every "normal" application is not selected. It is on "recommended." I enabled all of the built-in applications during the setup steps.

Good times. I really like using the e300. Built in BOTH styles of serial ports makes hookin' it up a snap. The keyboard with the hotkeys are really nice too.

I would perform a hard reset and restore it to Factory specs.  This is  
called a brainwipe so all data would be erased except built in apps.
This will give you full control and erase any passwords.  While  
holding the power button press the reset button and follow screen
