Changing the password does not lock it. When a device is locked or disabled, it's usually due to too many incorrect password attempts.

An iOS restore / update should be able to override it. Be sure to backup the data.

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.

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.

My 8GB ipod touch is disabled and showing connect to itunes


Hopefully the option wasnt selected to delete the ipod after a certain number of incorrect passcode entries.

When you connect your ipod to itunes its going to reformat it.
(meaning it gets erased, they do it as a precaution)

DONT FORGET THE CODE NEXT TIME!

Can't remember password


I had the same problem. And I coudn't remember my SCREEN LOCK Password as your son. So what I did was I just disconnecteed my IPOD while it was connected to itunes without properly ejecting. This method doesn't retrieve or resets the password, it justs opens your ipod out of the screen lock. so your son can hear his music as usual until he can get a password retreive helper.
