Here's how to reset it:

  1. Turn on your iPod (in my case it would only get as far as displaying the Apple logo
  2. Hold the power and home buttons down (the iPod will power off after 10 seconds, but keep holding those buttons down)
  3. After the iPod powers off, release the power button (but keep holding the home button down)
  4. After a couple more seconds, you should hear that magical “ding dong” that means the iPod is coming back alive, and that Windows has detected it. You may even see a little “New hardware” popup in Windows. It is now safe to release the home button, and your iPod is in DFU mode.
  5. Now iTunes will see it as a DFU’ed iPod and should ask you to automatically restore its firmware.
  6. iTunes has to download the new firmware, and it takes a while, so go make a sandwich.

I have tried changing facebook password its not working


Was your account disabled by Facebook? I've experienced this too [changing my password] when I was trying to revive one of my disabled accounts, thinking that by resetting the password I could get back, but to no avail. It was a fake account and they won't accept the ID's I've submitted.

How do i reset the password on my ipod


hold the menu button, connect it to your computer, let iTunes open up (keep holding it down)
there should be a message like 'iTunes has detected an iPod in recovery mode'...
don't let go of home until that message shows.

this resets your ipod and puts it into emergency recovery mode
just follow what it says, and you should be good to go

How to unlock the keypad of blackberry 8310 curve?


There isn't a way to disable the password of the BlackBerry device without actually knowing the password. Sorry. What will happen is if you enter the incorrect password 10 times the device will wipe itself, and clear the password. Of course, all data will be lost unless you have a backup of it.

Forgot password blackberry curve 8310


I think all you can do it reset the device to disable the password completely. If you enter the password ten times incorrectly it will ask if you want to do a complete reset.

THIS WILL DELETE ALL YOUR PERSONAL DATA.

If you can, back up your device using the Blackberry Desktop Manager application before doing a reset. Then you can re-load all your personal data after the reset, instead of having to type it all in again.
