    Hi,

    I am trying this now. I DID NOT rate you unhelpful, at all. In fact, I didn't get a chance to rate you :( I don't know what happened!

    Hi Marina,

    I'm confused. I"m not sure what you're talking about. I didn't do any ratings and now you say you're ok with that. With what? I didn't rate you except as "helpful" for this reply.

Hi Its me Marina,
I just cant reach you again on the chat.
so heres the info


1. Get QuickPwn

  • Download QuickPwn here
  • Unzip QuickPwn and get it running
2. Use QuickPwn (pretty easy)
  • When you first start QuickPwn, a window will pop up asking you to select the current device you have plugged in. Select yours.
  • Select the file of the firmware that you are currently running (
  • To find firmware files downloaded via iTunes, follow these directions. Open a folder and go to My Computer. Go to the Tools tab and click the view tab. Then click Folder Options and click “view hidden files and folders”, then click ok. Now follow this path. . Click Local Disc C, Documents and Settings, USERNAME, Application Data, Apple Computer, iTunes, iPod Software Updates. There are your downloaded firmwares.
  • Make sure all three options are clicked and then click the next arrow
3. The Command Line
  • For those of you not familiar with the command line, this might be a little scary. Just read what it tells you to do and do it.
  • It will first ask you to turn off your iPod/iPhone. Press enter when done
  • The next part is kinda weird. I think what they are trying to do is a DFU mode. Whatever. Just follow the instructions. First, you will hold the power button for five seconds. Then you will hold power AND home for ten seconds. Then you will release the power button and just hold home for up to thirty seconds (mine stopped at 22). Simple, no?
  • When it works, your iPod will turn white. The command line will run aa total of seven operations, showing the percentage points. Somewhere along the line of operations, the Pwn logo will pop up on your iPod.
  • The logo will disappear and the refresh circle will be spinning for about twenty to thirty seconds
  • The iPod will turn off and then on
  • Now you are done with the Pwning
4. Final touches
  • On your iPod/iPhone, go to Settings, General, Auto-Lock, and set it to 5 minutes
  • Go to Cydia and let it install its updates and such
  • Go to Sections, All Packages, and select BossTool and install it
  • Once installed, exit Cydia and open BossTool
  • Move the fonts. This might take a while, but just wait until it says “Fonts Already Moved”
  • Open Cydia, Go to Manage, click BossTool, select Modify, and remove it
5. If you want to deal with Installer
  • Open Installer and go to categories and select sources. Install Community Sources
  • If this doesn’t work, go to the sources tab and try to refresh the source there
  • Keep checking Installer and wait for updates and a version that isn’t beta
There you go. A much simpler way to hack your iPod. Note that restoring after doing this is rather difficult and requires many tries. It will not restore to firmware 1.1.5 after hacked. If only we had the good old revamped and ready ZiPhone…


and by the way you rated me unhelpful, i tried. :( and umm yeah try rating me. soo. i guess i'll wish you good luck... :)

bye

Doesn't turn on


Perform a straightforward reset procedure on your iPod Touch if you are experiencing issues like freezing, unresponsive apps, delays or other other problems. Carry out a reset if your iPod doesn't respond when you attempt to restart the unit. This type of reset will not erase any content from your iPod Touch.

Locate the "Sleep/Wake" button on the top of the iPod Touch. Press and hold down the "Sleep/Wake" button and the "Home" button simultaneously. Continue to hold both buttons for at least 10 seconds. Release the "Sleep/Wake" button and the "Home" button when the Apple logo appears on the screen, indicating the device has been reset. Hope it helps.

Tip

Lost Password for iPod Touch or iPhone?


To bypass a lost or forgotten password on your iPod Touch or iPhone, you'll need to go into Recovery mode:

( First method that worked)

You do this by plugging the iPod touch into a computer then hold down the power button for about 5 seconds until you see the red slider button to power it off, slide to power off the iPod touch. Then press and hold both the power button and the home button at the same time until you see the Apple logo, then release the power button but keep holding in the home button. Hold the home button in until you see the iTunes logo on the iPod touch, then let go of it. You can then restore your iPod using any computer but keep in mind that you will lose everything.

( Shorter method that I'm told will work, but untested)

Make sure your iPod Touch is completely turned off and unconnected from your computer. Hold down the Home button, and connect it to your USB cable. It will automatically turn on when you connect the cable. Just keep holding the Home button until the Connect to iTunes logo appears. That's it...

Screen shows usb and Itunes but computer doesnt recognize ipod.


1. Verify if your pc passes the system requirements.
(a) usb 2.0 port
(b) You are running the latest version of itunes

2. Recharge your iPod Touch

3. Check USB connections. Use a USB port that is built into the computer instead of using an external usb hub.

4. Restart iPod Touch. Do the following steps: To restart iPod touch, first turn iPod touch off by pressing and holding the Sleep/Wake button until a red slider appears. Slide your finger across the slider and iPod touch will turn off after a few moments.
Next, turn iPod touch on by pressing and holding the Sleep/Wake button until the Apple logo appears.
Is iPod touch not responding? To reset iPod touch, press and hold the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button at the same time for at least 10 seconds, until the Apple logo appears.

5. Restart your computer then reconnect your iPod Touch

6. Try reinstalling iTunes. And if this doesn't resolve the issue, you can also try uninstalling iTunes then reinstalling the latest version.

7. Check if there are third-party software that might prevent iTunes from recognizing your iPod touch. Such software may be security software, anti-virus software and webcam drivers. What you can do is adjust the software settings or you may also temporarily disable the software.

My ipod touch is stuck on a screen that says "ipod is disabled, try again in 5,785,421 mintues"


Connect your iPod Touch to your computer. Turn your iPod Touch off (hold down the top button and slide the red off slider). Then hold down the top button and the home button for ten seconds then let go of the top button while still holding the home button and KEEP holding it for up to 30 seconds. If it doesn't work the first time, try it again - iTunes should pop up and say that it sees an iPod Touch in restore mode. Click restore and you'll be able to get it back up...

My ipod touch wont work


If iPod touch won't turn on, or if the display freezes or doesn't respond
  • iPod touch may need charging. See "Charging the Battery" in the iPod touch Features Guide.
  • Press and hold the Home button for at least six seconds, until the application you were using quits.
  • If that doesn't work, turn off iPod touch and turn it on again. Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button on top of iPod touch for a few seconds until a red slider appears, and then drag the slider. Then press and hold the Sleep/Wake button until the Apple logo appears.
  • If that doesn't work, reset iPod touch. Press and hold both the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button for at least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears.
If iPod touch continues to freeze or not respond after you reset it
  • Reset iPod touch settings. From the Home screen choose Settings > General > Reset > Reset All Settings. All your preferences are reset, but your data and media are left untouched.
  • If that doesn't work, erase all content on iPod touch. From the Home screen choose Settings > General > Reset > "Erase All Content and Settings." All your preferences are reset, and all your data and media are removed from iPod touch.

To reset the iPhone or iPod Touch, press and hold down the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button simultaneously at the same time for at least ten seconds, then the LCD display will clear and the Apple logo appears on the black background. When Apple logo appears, reset is done.

My Ipod Touch Is Diabled Due To I Dnt No My Password


iTunes will only let you restore the iPod if you turn it off, hold the menu button and then plug in the usb cord connected to the computer as you are holding the menu button. the iphone will start in recovery mode and itunes will offer the restore. after that you will be password free, but your data will be erased, if you did a sync recently though, you can restore it from itunes. i work for an iphone repair shop and we do this repair frequently.
