Question about Apple iPod Touch WiFi MP3 Player
I misplaced my Ipod touch 4 gen for several weeks and when I found it again I had forgotten my passcode. I ended up locking myself out of it for numerous years. Called the Apple store and they walked me through a setup that was supposed to "fix" it. It doesn't show me locked out for years anymore, but I still can' reset a passcode and get into it! Any idea what to do or who to call??
If you have forgotten the code or put the wrong code in your ipod, 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.
If you can't unlock Ipod using either (the code or connecting it to the computer you use to manage its songs). . . 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.
If you want to change the primary computer that your Ipod is associated with, do this:
1. Restore your iPod. WARNING: The restore process cannot be undone.
All of your songs and files will be deleted.
Always make a backup of your important data.
2. Connect your ipod to the computer that you want to be the primary computer.
3. Open iTunes and synchronize.
If you can't unlock your ipod and you don't have access to the primary computer, your only option is to restore the Ipod, which will erase all music and data.

SOURCE: My ipod still won't do anything
If you're locked out, the only way back in, is to restore to factory default settings.
Try the following:
Make the iPod Touch go to Recovery Mode
If for some reason your iPod won't connect to iTunes, or whatever reason it is, you might need to make your iPod Touch into Recovery Mode. Here's how you could do that.
Makingyour device in Recovery Mode is irreversible. That means, once youexecute this, you can never get back your home screen until youcomplete the restore. So don't attempt this, because there's no room ifyou suddenly decides to change your mind. This method can also be knownas Manual Reset.
Step 1: Hold down the “Home” button
Step 2: Hold down the “Standby” button
Step 3: When it says “slide to turn off”, ignore it.
Step 4: It should restart with a blank screen. DO NOT LIFT THOSE BUTTONS YET.
Step 5: An “Apple” icon appears. You can lift the “Standby” button, but keep pressing the “Home” button
Step 6:Once you see a “connector” and an “iTunes” image (looks like when youjust bought it), that’s when it’s in Recovery mode. You can lift allthe buttons.
Perform a Manual Restore
Nowyou will need to perform a Manual Restore on it. The term "Manual", asthe name suggests, does not involve in using automated download viaiTunes. Instead, we are using iTunes do perform the Restore on the firmware we want.
See: Download the appropriate firmware
Step 1: Connect the iPod Touch, which is now in Recovery Mode
Step 2: Launch iTunes. iTunes will tell you that the iPod Touch is in Recovery Mode.
Step 3: Hold SHIFT while Left-click on Restore button. A file browser should come up. Select the appropriate firmware, then wait for the restoration to complete.
You can also do this Restore if you want to downgrade firmware version 1.1.2 into anything else.
And viola! You should be kicked out of the misery, and start your hacking all over again.

SOURCE: ipod touch disabled
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.
