How can I unlock a disabled ipod touch?


Step 1:
The iPod Touch is a type of iPod that features a touch screen and can function as both a portable media player and as a pocket computer. It is possible to password protect your iPod Touch so that you will have to enter a password every time you want to unlock the iPod Touch screen. If you repeatedly enter the incorrect passcode, your iPod Touch will become disabled. To unlock a disabled iPod Touch, you need to sync your iPod Touch device with iTunes on your computer.

Attach the iPod Touch data cable to the bottom of your iPod Touch device and attach the other end of the data cable to an available USB port on your computer. Open iTunes on your computer and then select your iPod Touch device from the list of available devices on the left side of the iTouch window. Click the "Restore" button. If you have previously backed up your iPod Touch, you can choose to restore the device to the last back up or any saved backup. If you have never backed up your iPod Touch, this process will restore your iPod Touch's factory settings. Wait while iTunes syncs with your iPod Touch and restores the device. iTunes will prompt you when this process is complete.

try to restore your ipod. first put the ipod in DFU mode by holding the home and sleep button until the screen goes black, now let go of the power button and keep the home button depressed, after around 20 seconds, you will hear a noise (beep/ding) from your computer as if it had just recognized a new hardware device, now iTunes should recognize it in DFU mode. iTunes should tell you it has detected a device that needs to be restored and if you follow the instructions in iTunes you should get a restored iPod.
Note: everything on your ipod gets deleted.

Ipod touch locked up, passcode needed


You can restore the ipod back to factory settings by putting it into DFU mode. to put it into DFU mode google greenpois0n and download it for your computer and follow only the first steps that put your ipod into DFU mode. After that iTunes should detect that the ipod needs to be restored and it will do the rest. when your ipod is restored just re-sync your ipod.

How can i unlock my ipod touch? i forgot my passcode.


The only thing that could make your iPod touch work again is to put it to DFU mode and restore. I have a full instruction about that to guide you step by step, making sure that you're doing the right thing.

However, that process will wipe out all the data from your iPod, you won't even be able to sync or create a back-up because iTunes does not recognize any iPod that is passcode-locked.

That is also why you need to put your iPod to DFU mode first, so that iTunes can recognize it, to by-pass the fact that it is passcode-locked. And, once its in DFU mode, the only thing that you'll be able to do is to restore, nothing else. And you have no other choice.

If i hold the home button then press the off


That's not the right way to put your iPod touch to restore (DFU) mode. And to make it even worse, there is NO WAY of restoring your iPod touch without wiping everything out of it. Restore will always remove all data from your device.

The only possible way of keeping everything in your iPod is to remember the passcode. Yes, that's the only way, because iTunes (from your computer) won't even recognize your iPod, so you have no way of creating a back-up.

Now, if remembering your passcode seems impossible, and you still wanna be able to use your iPod touch again, you should forget about all the data in it and restore it while in DFU (restore) mode.

To put your iPod to DFU mode, plug your iPod to the computer. It doesn't matter if your iPod is not recognized by iTunes, just plug it in.

I forgot my ipod touch password


When you forgot your passcode, iTunes will not recognize your iPod Touch unless you put it to DFU mode.

Once your iPod touch is in DFU mode, only thing that you can do next is to restore. This means, all data from your iPod touch will be deleted.

Il forgot my password and cant get on my ipod


Hi,

unfortunately you will have to restore your ipod touch. Just connect it to your computer, and within itunes select the restore option on the ipod page.

The ipod should be able to be restored by the computer that last synced it.

Otherwise, try to restore your ipod via DFU mode. Here is a great step by step guide to do that. http://iphonefreakz.com/beginners-guide/howto-dfu-mode/

I hope this helps,

Nathan.
