Forgot master lock code, can't reset profiles.xml - skyd - 04-26-2017

As the subject suggest, I forgot my master lock code.
I read an article saying I should reset a few lines in profiles.xml. I did, but the settings keep coming back after each reboot.

I tried removing profiles.xml altogether, but the whole file keeps coming back after reboot - with the master lock settings in tact.

I tried rebooting via the UI, and also via SSH with both "reboot" and "systemctl restart kodi".
Nothing works.

How could I reset the master lock code?

Thanks.
