How to Unlock an Ipod using Windows

If you ever accidently locked yourself out of your iPod this is the easiest way to UNLOCK an iPod

FIRST CONNECT iPod TO COMPUTER/LAPTOP (using a USB cable)

On your desktop click on Microsoft

start button, then choose Run..

type this exactly

J:\ipod_Control\Device

then click

OK

tip: use the letter representing your ipod driver, for example

J...(you can find your letter by clicking
My computer then see your ipod name under that letter)

there will be a file named

_locked

you then right click on it and choose

Rename, you then type

unlocked

then press Enter

OR

you can just

delete the file named _locked

now close window

and

safely disconnect usb driver (this would be either on your icon tray or you could use itunes or any other media player that has an eject button)

CONGRATZ YOUR iPod IS NOW UNLOCKED AND READY TO BE ENJOYED AGAIN

ps...have not tried it, but....

if you have a locked iphone or itouch, this just might work for it too.....

instead of

J:\ipod_Control\Device

replace

ipod to iphone or itouch, get it?...

Good!...

Now have FUN!!!

Maybe, you accidentally zoomed in the screen of your iPhone, to zoom out, use three of your fingers to double-tap the screen simultaneously. Do the same thing to zoom back in.

You can restore your iPod to factory settings using iPod Updater. Please note that this will erase all data on your iPod. Afterwards, you can add your music and data back to your iPod.
