SOURCE: i forgot my code on my ipod nano screen

For those forgetful people

all right guys i have a solution for this but it will require some work first:

  • Mount the nano (plug it in)
  • Navigate to X:iPod_ControlDevice (where X is the drive letter of the iPod)
  • Find the file called "_locked" and open it with Notepad or TextEdit
nowu should get some thing like : Vôáijåö éúPbíþT~ñâHzõæLvùê@rýîD as thetext but its not that con fusing to show here are two diffrent codes

Vôáijåö éúPbíþT~ñâHzõæLvùê@rýîD
the same!
]óãhjåö éúPbíþT~ñâHzõæLvùê@rýîD
so in fact the part that matters is the first 4.... and its a 4 digit code!!

soooo i have made a guide line.. for u to match up your code with









now how does this help ?? well i set my code as 1234 and this is what the first 4 digits were: _òão

ifu look at the first one and compare to the guide it shows that thefirst digit is 1 the second 2 the third 3 and the last is 4! taaadaaaa!!!!

Rock on people hope this helps!!!!

My gradson forgot the code to unlock nano


there are two options by which you can unblock the code on your ipod. Follow any of the procedures tomorrow.

Unlock with the Primary Computer
  1. Plug the iPod into the primary computer linked to that iPod, the first computer you synchronized it with unless you have designated another computer as the primary computer.
  2. Open itunes and sync the iPod as normal.
  3. Remove the iPod, following the normal removal procedure. The iPod unlocks automatically as you remove it.
Unlock by Restoring
  1. Restore the iPod to factory settings if you do not have access to your primary computer. This erases all of the data you have stored on the iPod.
  2. Plug your iPod into the new computer you want to be the primary computer. Open iTunes and click on the "Restore" button.
  3. Reload your data, if it is available and sync your iPod. Remove it following normal procedures.
Taker care.

Unlock ipod nano without loosing memory

IM SORRY 1st of all but...

you cannot unlock an iPod if you forget your combination. If you can't unlock your iPod and you don't have access to the primary computer, your only option is to restore the iPod, which will erase all music and data."

My Ipod is locked and my son forgot the code. How do I unlock it? It's an ipod nano A1236 and i have already tried a lot of codes and it dosen't work.

If you forgot your passcode for your Nano, then you will have to do a restore on your Nano which you'll have to do via iTunes; which will erase all data on your Nano, and restore all settings to factory default.
There is no other way to recover your passcode if you forgot it.
Once you run a recovery via iTunes you can re-add your music, etc.

How to unlock my ipod

Hook the iPod up to the computer you set it up on and open iTunes. When you disconnect it it should be unlocked. If you are not using the original computer that you set it up with, you may need to do a restore within iTunes.

I locked my ipod and forgot the code

If you have a third gen ipod nano and you locked the screen lock and forgot the code, well what you do is you hook your ipod to your PC,laptop ect. and disconnect it. It should be unlocked. But if you lock it you have to do that over again to unlock it.
