Step 1: The iPod Touch is a type of iPod that features a touch screen and can function as both a portable media player and as a pocket computer. It is possible to password protect your iPod Touch so that you will have to enter a password every time you want to unlock the iPod Touch screen. If you repeatedly enter the incorrect passcode, your iPod Touch will become disabled. To unlock a disabled iPod Touch, you need to sync your iPod Touch device with iTunes on your computer.
Attach the iPod Touch data cable to the bottom of your iPod Touch device and attach the other end of the data cable to an available USB port on your computer. Open iTunes on your computer and then select your iPod Touch device from the list of available devices on the left side of the iTouch window. Click the "Restore" button. If you have previously backed up your iPod Touch, you can choose to restore the device to the last back up or any saved backup. If you have never backed up your iPod Touch, this process will restore your iPod Touch's factory settings. Wait while iTunes syncs with your iPod Touch and restores the device. iTunes will prompt you when this process is complete.
You can reset it using iTunes. Open iTunes, plug the iPod in using USB,
then turn of the iPod, once it's off hold down the home and lock buttons
for 10 seconds, then release the lock button while continuing to hold
the home button. After a few seconds iTunes should detect the iPod. Then
you should be able to restore the iPod back to factory defaults. Even if you've forgotten the passcode.
You can try putting it into DFU mode and restoring the firmware
here's how you put the ipod into DFU mode- connect your ipod touch to your computer- turn off your ipod touch- press and hold the Home button and sleep/wake button at the same time- After about 10 seconds release the sleep/wake button but continue holding the Home button until the iTunes pops up a message telling you that it has detected an ipod in recovery mode- now you will be able to restore it..
If you repeatedly enter the wrong passcode, iPhone or iPod touch
will be disabled for longer intervals, before you can try again. After
too many unsuccessful attempts, you won't be able to try again until
you connect to the computer you normally sync with. Note that starting
with iPhone 2.1 software, there is a setting to cause the device to
erase itself after 10 consecutive incorrect password attempts. This
setting is off by default. It can be turned on by tapping Settings > General > Passcode Lock after you enter a correct passcode.
If you cannot remember the passcode, you will need to restore your
device on the computer that was used to originally sync the iPhone or
iPod touch so that you can reset your passcode and resync the data from
the device (or restore from a backup). If you restore on a different
computer that was never synced to the iPhone or iPod touch, you will be
able to unlock the device for use and remove the passcode but your data
will not be present.
