This is a note to every one as far as i know u do not need to restore your ipod! dont go through the hassle........ try this first

For those forgetful people

all right guys i have a solution for this but it will require some work first:

  • Mount the nano (plug it in)
  • Navigate to X:\iPod_Control\Device\ (where X is the drive letter of the iPod)
  • Find the file called "_locked" and open it with Notepad or TextEdit
now u should get some thing like : Vôáijåö\féúPbíþT~ñâHzõæLvùê@rýîD as the text but its not that con fusing to show here are two different codes

Vôáijåö\féúPbíþT~ñâHzõæLvùê@rýîD
the same endings
]óãhjåö\féúPbíþT~ñâHzõæLvùê@rýîD
so in fact the part that matters is the first 4.... and its a 4 digit code!!

soooo i have made a guide line.. for u to match up your code with

0000

Cant unlock my ipod


What generation? What do you mean, the slide to unlock, or the screen lock? If you mean the screen lock, you should connect to iTunes, because some iPods unlock after connecting to iTunes. Otherwise you should reset it with iTunes. But then all your data will be lost. Otherwise you should try try try. You've got 10000 chances ;-) If you have an iPod Touch, you might mean the slide to unlock screen is frozen. I had that one time, after trying out spoken feedback. After that it locked the screen and the touch screen wouldn't work anymore. I couldn't do anything anymore, not unlocking, not turning off spoken feedback, not even turn off the iPod. I was lucky to find there was an update for the iPod so iTunes turned it off. Then it responded also again.
More details next time please!

Locked i pod


Screen Lock only locks users out of the user interface. It does not encrypt data on your iPod.
For example, if you use Screen Lock and then connect your iPod to a computer, you'll still be able
to manage music on your iPod with iTunes and access all data on it in disk mode (contacts,
notes, and any other files you have stored on the iPod).

To unlock it, connect iPod to the primary computer you use it with (the first one iPod synced with),
and open iTunes. When you disconnect iPod from the computer, it will no longer be locked.

If you can't unlock iPod using this method, you can restore your iPod to factory settings. Please
note that this will erase all data on your iPod. Afterwards, you can add your music and data back to iPod.

To restore your I-pod, do this:
1) Ensure that you have an active Internet connection as new versions of iTunes and iPod Software
may need to be downloaded to your computer.
2) Open iTunes, and then connect your iPod to your computer using the USB or FireWire cable that
came with your iPod. After a few moments, your iPod will appear in the Source panel in iTunes.
3) Select your iPod in the Source panel and you will see information about your iPod appear in the
Summary tab of the main iTunes windows.
4) Click the Restore button. You will be prompted with one or more restore options that may prompt
iTunes to automatically download the latest iPod Software. Use restore option 4.

Locked forever


In the Apple Support Site, Apple notes that the "Screen Lock" function:
Allows you to set a 4-digit combination to prevent someone else from using your iPod while it is not attached to a computer. When an iPod is locked, you must enter the combination to unlock the screen. This feature is different from the Hold switch in that the Hold switch only prevents iPod from turning on accidentally -- not keeping snoops out.

For example, if you use Screen Lock and then connect your iPod to a computer, you'll be able to manage music on your iPod with iTunes and access all data on it in disk mode (contacts, notes, and any other files you have stored on the iPod). This supportdocument aso provides additional information on locking and unlocking the iPod. According to Apple, if you have forgotten the code, you can unlock the iPod by doing the following:
Connect your iPod to the primary computer you use it with (the first one iPod synced with), and open iTunes. When you disconnect iPod from the computer, it will no longer be locked.

Please note that this will erase all data on your iPod. Afterwards, you can add your music and data back to your iPod.
