Lost Password for iPod Touch or iPhone?

To bypass a lost or forgotten password on your iPod Touch or iPhone, you'll need to go into Recovery mode:

( First method that worked)

You do this by plugging the iPod touch into a computer then hold down the power button for about 5 seconds until you see the red slider button to power it off, slide to power off the iPod touch. Then press and hold both the power button and the home button at the same time until you see the Apple logo, then release the power button but keep holding in the home button. Hold the home button in until you see the iTunes logo on the iPod touch, then let go of it. You can then restore your iPod using any computer but keep in mind that you will lose everything.

( Shorter method that I'm told will work, but untested)

Make sure your iPod Touch is completely turned off and unconnected from your computer. Hold down the Home button, and connect it to your USB cable. It will automatically turn on when you connect the cable. Just keep holding the Home button until the Connect to iTunes logo appears. That's it...

how to fix a disabled ipod 4th generation touch


Put the ipod into recovery mode and connect to itunes. itunes will offer to reset the device to factory install (current iOS will be downloaded and installed). This will wipe all contents on the ipod, but you can restore all purchases from Apple store.
If you happen to have a backup you can restore from that unless that backup is too new and contains the forgotten password.

i cant get into my itouch


If you don't have the original computer the iPhone synced with, the only solution is to force your iPod Touch into recovery mode and then restore it. You will lost all the data on the iPod Touch, but after this method is done, everything will work. You can find the steps to solving this problem here:
