Sometimes it appears nothing happens but after pulling the hood get out and try reaching under the hood for the latch. However if nothing at all happened you need someone to press down lightly on the hood as you pull the cord.

do you mean undone from the cable? if so, see if you can reach the attachment point for the cable and pull in direction of the cable to release

SOURCE: Hood latch won't unlatch
have someone help u by pushing down on hood while u pull lever or use a hook up under grill to push or pull on latch release the lever may be bent enough so that its not pulling the latch far enough to release
