SOURCE: forgot my ipod touch password and now its disabled

Connect to iTunes, go to the settings menu of your iPod (click on the picture of your ipod on the bar on the side.) Then click "restore my ipod's settings," or something similar to that. You will have to re-sync your ipod, but your password will be removed. hope it helps

connect it to itunes and do a reset and then restore your music etc and it should be fine - there is no way that I am aware of to recover it aside from resetting / restoring your ipod

SOURCE: i forgot my ipod touch 4 digit password and now

here you go, in detailed steps:

  1. Plug in your iPod.
  2. Wait for it to load completely.
  3. Open My Computer (or computer if on Vista). Make sure you can view hidden files.
  4. Go to iPod_control.
  5. Go to the folder named Device.
  6. If your iPod is locked, there will be a file _locked . Rename the file to _unlocked.
  7. Safely remove your iPod and it will be cleared.
Hope this helped! ^_^ Have a great day~

Wow, it just amazes me how non helpful some of these lame a.s comments are.  Come on people you gots ta do better then that for advice!!
So you probably stole this thing and want to unlock it so you can put all your porn and music on it right? 
Well buddy, make sure you got itunes loaded on your computer first and then open up the application.  Now plug your cord into the itunes slot and then plug the usb part into your computer.  Your ipod screen will say some name of the person's ipod you stole and will prompt you for the passcode, but you don't know it do you?  Do you?? Your computer screen will say you need to sync your ipod with the original computer it synced up with the last time, but I bet you forgot to steal the computer while you were being chased out with a shotgun or you heard cop sirens.

Anyways, you gots ta hold down the top power button and the home button at the bottom of the ipod screen at the same time.  Get your friend to do it if you got arthritis or are prone to finger cramping.  A cancel screen will pop up on your ipod and you should continue holding on these buttons for dear life and just ignore the cancel screen.  When the screen goes completely dark- release your death hold on the top power button but keep your other finger on the home button until the shiny gray apple logo shows up on the ipod screen.  Now turn your head and look at the computer screen and it will say ipod is going in recovery mode and just press ok or the recovery mode button. 
Now let your ipod and computer do its thing and your ipod will be restored to original factory settings and ready for you to put your porn and music on it.

The restore process will take a few minutes, so go take you a leak or get you a beer or something. 
When the ipod is done you can set up your new pass code to something easier or don't use a fuc.k.n pass code and you won't have to stress over this sh.t again.

Welcome to Fixya Community.

You need to restore it with iTunes, but you can't restore an iPod While its Locked With a password, well in order to Force it to Restore you shud put it on Recovery Mode.
Hold down the power and home keys down for about 10 seconds each while plugged into iTunes. When the screen goes black, release the power button but keep holding the home key until itunes says. We have detected an itouch in recovery mode.

From there you can restore as normal via iTunes.
and that will reset you configuration including Your Password.
Thank you For Using Fixya.
Good Luck.

I pod disabled due to wrong password forgot it

If you have the original computer it was synced to, you can plug it in and it should allow you more chances to try password. If not known, you will have to restore it using that computer. Shut down iPod, with iTunes on and cable plugged into computer, WHILE HOLDING THE HOME BUTTON DOWN, plug in cable into your iPod .... it will turn on, keep holding the home button for 10 seconds and then it will take you to the restore screen. iCloud password will be required if iCloud was loaded.

The iPod touch was disabled because the wrong password was entered too many times.

Connect the iPod to the computer you normally sync it with. After that you will be able to unlock it.
