How do I Unlock Ipod screen if I forgot the 4 digit password?

Hi I recently received an Ipod Nano from a friend and I set it up and everything worked great. I just locked the screen and I can't unlock it. I called my friend and he said that he forgot the 4 digit combination. Does anyone have a quick fix for this?

  • dyzee15 Aug 05, 2008

    i saw this video from metacafe.... all u need to do is connect your ipod to the computer then go to mycomputer and open the drive for ipod(e.g. My Ipod(E:))
    after that you should view all hidden files.. you can do this by changing it from the folder options that can be found on the tools menu... you will then see a translucent folder named ipod_control open this and go to device... rename the file _locked to _unlocked... disconnect and its done!!!!

From the link Noggin posted I was able to unlock my iPod: Here is some brief explanation: 1. Connect iPod to your computer, it have to be the same one you used the first time to sync your iPod. 2. open iTunes. 3. disconnect iPod from the computer 4. It should no longer be locked. 5. Change the 4 digit passcode If this doesn't work you will have to restore it back to factory settings: 1. Make a backup, the restore process will delete all your songs and files! 2. Connect your iPod to the computer and wait until your itunes detects it. 3. Click the restore button and follow the instructions. * I have never done the restore process so I cannot help you further...

I had the same problem and looked all over the internet and saw those same answers. Ok that won't work. This is what you need to do. I have Vista by the way.
1)connet ipod to computer
2)open itunes
3)got to top of page, click on the store drop down menu and click "authorize computer"
4) next you need to go start menu and click on my computer
5) click on your ipod
6)open the folder that says ipod controls. (This is where I got lost- if you don't see it you need to switch it to classic view- go to organize and click the folder and search options. Under the general tab switch it to windows classic folders. then click the ipod contols option
7) you will see a folder that says "locked". right click it and change "locked" to "unlocked". Thats it.
pretty simple when you do it, you won't lose anything on your ipod. hope it helps you.

The only way to get rid of the password is to do a "Factory Reset" which will delete everything on the iPod. You hook it up to the computer and then when you select the iPod in the "source" panel of iTunes, select the "Summary" tab. There should be a "Restore" button. Just follow the instructions that iTunes gives you. For more detail, Apple support has a page that has every little thing on it, but this should be enough to get you through it.

You guys need to perform restore on the pc

  • Note: Because Restore erases all of the songs and files on iPod, make sure to back up any files you've saved on the iPod disk. All of your songs, videos, podcasts, audiobooks, and games can be loaded back to your iPod provided that you have them stored in your iTunes Library.
How to restore your iPod:
For Windows:
  • 1. Make sure you've reinstalled the latest version of iTunes.
  • 2. Open iTunes, and then connect your iPod to your computer.
  • 3. After a few moments, it will appear in the source list in iTunes.
  • 4. Select your iPod in the source list and you will see information about it appear in the Summary tab of the main iTunes windows.
  • 5. Click the Restore button. You will be prompted with one or more restore options that may prompt iTunes to automatically download of the latest iPod Software. The 4 possible restore options are:
    • Restore Option 1: Restore - Restores with same iPod Software version already on iPod.
    • Restore Option 2: Use Same Version - Restores with same iPod Software version already on iPod even though a newer version is available.
    • Restore Option 3: Use Newest Version - Restores with the latest iPod Software on your computer.
    • Restore Option 4: Restore and Update - Restores with the latest iPod Software on your computer.
  • 6. A progress bar will appear on the computer screen indicating that the first stage of the restore process has started. When this stage is completed, iTunes will instruct you to leave iPod connected to your computer to complete restore.
  • 7. During the stage 2 of the restore process, the iPod will show an Apple logo as well as a progress bar at the bottom of the display. It is critical that the iPod remains connected to the computer or iPod Power adapter during this stage. Note: The progress bar may be difficult to see since the backlight on the iPod display may be off.
  • 8. After stage 2 of the restore process is complete and the iPod is connected to the computer, the iTunes Setup Assistant window will appear asking you to name your iPod and choose your syncing preferences similar to when you connected your iPod for the first time.

Use the Ziphone ipod touch and iphone jailbreak GUI to put the ipod in recovery mode. Then restore it using iTunes.

Try restoring the software back to factory settings using Itunes. This should erase the code.

See these instructions for unlocking the iPod Screen Lock if you don't know the combination.

  1. You can connect it to the first computer it was every synced with (this should be your friend's computer?) Open iTunes, then disconnect the iPod. It should now be unlocked.
  2. If you can't do that, then you can restore the iPod to factory default settings. Note that this will erase all music and data from the iPod, along with the Screen Lock password.
