perhaps a reflash won't wipe the code.
others say they do.
others say differently...that it won't wipe the old password.
still others say things are dependent on what has been put on the device for example - asui.
For myself I have never been in the "security code forgotten" predicament...but I have seen alot of people in that pickle.
So...what to say...hunt up all the options people have used under varying conditions and. try whatever you can to retain your info if possible.
while digging for the password.
failing that dig into the system after a reflash and dig out your password.
