Hi,

The only option is Restore or Reset.

Hold down the power and home keys down for about 10 seconds each while plugged into itunes. When the screen goes black, release the power button but keep holding the home key until itunes says. We have detected an itouch in recovery mode.

From there you can restore as normal via iTunes.

Thanks.

Forgot my ipod password


If you are talking about your screenlock password then this is what you do WITHOUT deleting your data from the iTouch.
1.Plug the iPod in computer.
2.Go to "My Computer" And click the the drive where you iPod is located.
3.Change the folder option to "View all hidden files and folders"
4.Navigate to ipod_control
5.Then go to Device
6.There should be a file there named "_Unlocked"
7.Open that up with a text editor (Notepad) and the passcode will be there.

Forgot my password


If you cannot remember the pass word, you will need to restore your device on the computer that you used originally sync your itouch to. So then you can reset your passcode and resync the data from the device (or restore from a backup). If you use or restore on a different computer from the orginal, you will be able to unlock the device for use, you can remove the pass word but your data will not be saved. Hope this helps.

How do i unlock my ipod touch when i forgot my password and i dont want to restore it


You can unlock your IPOD Touch passcode or password by following these simple steps:

•Connect your IPOD Touch to iTunes
•Press or Hold the power and home keys for 10 seconds.
•Screen goes black, now release the power button
•Make sure you do not release the Home key until your iTunes says "We have detected an itouch in recovery mode."
•After this its simple all you need to do is a restore using your iTunes.

Restore an iPod:

Warning: When you restore and iPod, you delete everything on it (songs, pictures, movies, files, games, firmware, etc.) Hey! That means any stuff that's on the iPod, but not in the iTunes library, will be lost. After deleting everything, iTunes reloads the iPod software with a fresh copy (referred to as "factory settings").

Using iTunes:

When the iPod is connected, select it in the Source list in iTunes. Under the Summary tab, there is a button named "Restore." Click it. Select the restore option you want then sit back. A progress bar will show you the status of the restore. When it's done, you'll see a message like "Leave iPod connected to computer to complete restore." Now the iPod will show a progress bar. Do not disconnect during this part. When it's done, the iTunes Setup Assistant will prompt you to name and configure the iPod.

All you must do is access itunes and restore you iTouch. It will remove the password and such. However you will lose everything you have on your itouch now.

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,

Forgot password on my itouch


If you just plug your iPod into the computer, it should work fine. I forgot my password once, and I plugged it in, and it worked and didn't take off the songs. As long as you plug it into the computer you put songs onto the iPod from, it shouldn't be a problem.

My itouch is disabled and i dont remember my password. i try 2 connect it to my computer thru itunes but it wont show up because it says it is locked.


i had the same problem. this is all the steps needed, calling apple isnt necessary.
first: press down on the top power button and on the menu button
second: keep pressing, eventually the screen to turn it off will pop out. ignore it and keep pressing.
third: the itouch will turn off completely but dont stop pressing
fourth: the apple sign will come out. you may now release.
fifth: now you should be able to connect to itunes that will restore your ipod.

your welcome.

oh and get some ice for your fingers . lol.
