    Hello. I have a Nexus 7 2012 running cyanogenmod 11 (android 4.2.2). So it’s a rooted device. I created a user for my daughter and she made a passcode pin but now she has forgotten the the pin. I got Aroma manager installed and I was able to find my own pin code and delete it using this method (forum.xda-developers.com/show….php?t=2225695). But this did nothing to my daughter’s user passcode. Can anyone help? I don’t want to factory reset of delete her profile. Thanks
