How to Access the CE Desktop on the MK11XX when it is in Kiosk Mode

Facts

The MK11XX is configured to launch an application via its mkconfig.reg file upon power-up.

Answer

The MK11XX boots into kiosk mode, not to the CE desktop.
Bypass the launch by holding buttons A and D (1 & 4) just after Phase 1 of boot-up.
  1. Cold boot the MK11XX by pressing and holding buttons B & C (2 & 3) until the display goes blank (typically 15 seconds), then release the buttons.
  2. Just after Phase 1 of the boot-up sequence, hold down the A & D (1 & 4) buttons.
  3. The MK11XX will prompt for a password, enter DDBAC (44213) and touch OK, or press A & B (1& 2) simultaneously for “Enter”.
  4. The MK11XX will enter Protected Mode and the CE Desktop will appear.
