Tip & How-To about Audio Players & Recorders
So if anyone has ever forgotten their ipod touch's passcode or somehow gets locked out and can't get back in even if you restart it, you can try the one and only solution, the hard reboot. It works great, except you will lose all data on the ipod touch. There are two ways to complete this task successfully, first of all you can use the first way i learned, which is: hold both the top screen lock button and the home button for about 8-10 seconds, and the slide to power off thing should pop up, don't slide it though. When you reach this point you release the top screen lock button but continue to hold the home button until the ipod turns off, then it won't turn back on until you plug it in to a computer and then restore it using itunes. The second way is a little bit easier, you just have to hold down the screen lock button and the home button at the same time for 30 seconds and this will do the same thing as the first method. Thanks for reading, I hope this helps :D
Shorter Simplified Version: Hold down sleep and home button until you see the restarting apple logo, then release the sleep button and continue holding the home button until it shows the sign to plug into your computer then restore.
