    For anyone who can’t get this to work, you first need to hit CTRL+Break in order to get to the prompt where you hit CTRL+A then CTRL+B then ESC. Then login with the credentials given above, it will look like this:

    Press within 5 seconds: for Service Interface, for baud rate

    login: shellUsr
    -> DF4m/2>
    Serial Port shell started.

    Also just to mention if you are running a super old controller firmware, you don’t need to hit escape to access the console where you can run the lemClearLockdown, you can just go into the normal service menu then press Q to quit, and it drops you out to the console where lemClearLockdown works. Even works if you get the password wrong.
