I lost my ipod touch and now have found it again, but i cant acess it because its says "ipod is disabled, please try again in 5148976 minutes, which is over 10 years!! what do i do???
5,148,976 minutes is only 9.78988132 years. Unit conversion can make a difference. In this case, I'll go out on a limb and assume that the 76.7442087 days doesn't make much of a difference for you. Now then, I had no idea how to answer your question and was just going to mock your unit conversion failure, but I decided I could have a little fun with this as well. Let's assume you lost your manuals and can't use those. What would be the next best step? Oh, I know! Copy the words that you wrote ("ipod is disabled, please try again in") and paste those into the Google search bar and hit enter. Here's the link for you: http://tinyurl.com/yj7vxa8 . I then clicked the first result and read through that. It's an Apple support page. Step-by-*******-step directions. After reading through that even I, someone who hasn't used an iPod Touch, understood what to do. But may that's a bit much for you. Maybe you need it broken down to small, short, simple 3rd grade words. So I went back to the Google results page. Second result: http://tinyurl.com/y92mbla . Look at that... small, short, simple 3rd grade words. And it tells you exactly what to do.
Step 1: Turn off your iPod touch / iPhone completely and connect to PC / mac
Step 2: Hold down the Power button for 3 seconds
Step 3: Without releasing the power button, also hold the Home button for 10 seconds
Step 4: Without releasing the home button, release the power button and keep holding the Home button for 20 seconds.
And From there, iTunes will identify that you are in DFU mode and lend a hand. Nifty, huh?
So, in review: Double check your unit conversions. See if you can first solve your problem yourself (User guides, owner manuals, etc...). Do Google searches on the error messages.
