Ipod touch model a1288 is disable forgot passcode and wont let me connect to itunes messages says enter passcode to connect

The most logical option would be...
- Connect your device to iTunes (The same computer it is set to sync with)
- Hold the power and home buttons
- After the device shuts down, release the power button
- Your device should then be in recovery mode, at which point you may release the home button upon seeing a message on iTunes that basically says it has detected an iPod in recovery mode.

I forget my passcode to get into my ipod touch

After a series of more failed attempts, your iPod displays the same "iPod is Disabled" message, but with an added "Connect to iTunes" message. At this point, your iPod shuts down completely and you cannot make any more attempts to enter the passcode. In order to restore the device at this stage, you need to connect it to a computer with iTunes installed. Ideally, connect it to a computer that you've used before for syncing your iPod.

    8GB iPod Touch Disabled

    you will have to restore your ipod to factory default settings in itunes.
    or you can jailbreak the ipod with software like quickpwn.

    Here is how to restore your ipod in itunes.
    You will need to put the itouch in DFU/Recovery mode to get it to connect.

    Normal 0 MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman";} Plug the usb cable into the Ipod and NOT into the computer.
    Hold the Home Button down for 5 second (do not release it)
    Then Press and hold the Power Button for approx 10 secs (count them out)
    Your iPod will reboot.
    Release the power button and continue holding the Home button for an additional 27secs.
    You may see the screen go blank or not.
    Plug the USB end into the computer with itunes open.
    Your ipod will mount in recovery mode.
    Restore it and Your all set.

    if you need any further help let me know.
    Good Luck

    I Touch won't connect to wireless router

    first off, make sure you have wifi enabled in your settings. if that doesnt work hold the home and sleep buttons untill your ipod shuts off and turn it back on. sometimes i do this when something is glitching on my ipod. check to make sure your your pass word is correct too.

    p.s. if you are really desperate, hold your home andsleep button untill your ipod shuts off, then continue to hold untill your ipod reboots. once it starts to turn on, just keep holding down the home button and NOT the sleep button anymore. a screen should pop telling you to connect to itunes. your computer will detect it in recovery mode and you can continue to restore on your computer. you can restore it that way or just do it by hitting the restore button in itunes :)
