Oh, if you're not sure what I mean by "enter the commands" in the long post just above your last one - you'd have to first reinstall the operating system if you're unable to actually use the device.
Then once you've reinstalled/reflashed the operating system, you'll be able to get in to the device because it won't ask you for the lock code, but the lock code will still be set. So then you find a program called "X-Term", or perhaps "Terminal" or "X Terminal" or something like that, and open it. Then type the aforementioned commands:
sudo gainroot grep -A13 /dev/mtd1 lock_code | tail -1
Into the command prompt that opens up.
Edit: and just to be clear the output that should get printed will be the lock code.
