Itouch disabled


Unfortunately, the only easy and reliable way to reset the passcode on an iPod touch or other iOS device is to perform a complete restore of the device, which will wipe everything on it. Connecting your iPod touch to your original iTunes library will reset any disabled passcode counter, allowing you to make additional passcode attempts, but it will not bypass the passcode.

The good news, however, is that as long as you have a backup of your iPod touch in iTunes or iCloud, you can restore that backup onto your device after you've erased it, thereby allowing you to basically pick up where you left off. Restoring from backup will recover all of your data and settings except for the device passcode, which you will be prompted to re-enter. You may also need to re-enter some passwords for things like e-mail accounts or Wi-Fi networks as these are secured by the device passcode, and thereby lost if you can't remember your original passcode.

Note that even if you haven't already made a recent backup of your device, you can still make one even with the device locked provided you still have your primary iTunes library available-usually the iTunes library and computer that you originally setup your iPod touch with. To do this, simply plug in your iPod touch, right-click on it in the Devices listing in iTunes, and choose the Back Up option from the context menu that appears.

How do i over ride the passcode on my ipod touch


Hi

Some iPods, such as the iPod Touch, include a passcode option as a security feature. The passcode is intended to deter thieves from stealing the device and to discourage any unauthorized use. If you have set up a passcode on your iPod and now have forgotten it, you can bypass the passcode screen. Bypassing the passcode screen requires that the device be fully restored. Restoring the iPod will remove all files from the device. Only files in the iTunes library, or in another place on the computer, can be restored. Once restoration is complete, you can update the iPod.



What you need? USB CABLE



Bypass the iPod Passcode and Restore the Device

1 Open the iTunes software on your computer. If you don't have iTunes installed, see Resource for download link.

2 Connect the iPod to the computer using the USB cable.

3 Press and hold down both the "Power" and "Home" keys simultaneously for 10 seconds or until the screen goes black. Now release the "Power" key.

4 Release the "Home" key when the message "We have detected an itouch in recovery mode" appears. Confirm that the iPod will be restored.

5 Hit "Back up" to save your iPod settings when prompted.

6 Select the "Restore" option. Allow restoration to begin. Make sure to keep the iPod connected to the computer and iTunes open. Once complete, the Apple logo will display on the iPod screen, and iTunes will notify you when the process is complete.



Update the iPod

1 Open iTunes and connect the iPod to the computer using the USB cable.

2 Select your iPod under "Devices" in the left pane.

3 Click the "Summary" tab.

4 Click the "Check for Update" button. The iTunes software will check for any available updates. Follow the additional prompts to confirm and install the updates.

My ipod touch says to connect to itunes but cant unlocked


You can bypass that lock by doing the following steps:
  1. Plug/connect your device to a computer (PC or Mac)
  2. Turn it OFF
  3. Press and hold the POWER and HOME buttons together for EXACTLY 10seconds
  4. Release the POWER button but keep holding the HOME button until the computer beeps indicating that a USB device is recognized.
  5. Open iTunes and restore your device.

Warning: Restoring will delete all data on your device but this is the only way for you to recover it.


If you don't get it at first, try holding the buttons for lesser time or see the other procedures on my tip (link below):

Ipod wont show up on itunes


Okay, I had a similar problem with a 5th Gen 30GB, and I stumbled upon a solution that I have not seen anywhere else.
Basically, my iPod was mounting as a disk drive, but would not show up in iTunes. I reset it many times and ran the diagnostics (left and center upon Apple logo at startup). Nothing worked, and of course I couldn't restore it, because it wouldn't show up in iTunes. It did the same thing regardless of what PC or Mac it was plugged into -- it always mounted, but never showed up in iTunes.
Another odd observation was that it was mounting on my Mac desktop with the "external hard drive" icon, not with an iPod icon.
Here is what I did that fixed it:
1. Plugged it in to a Mac. 2. Opened a Terminal session 3. Browsed to the /Volumes/iPod/iPod_Control/ folder 4. Renamed the iTunes sub-folder to iTunes.backup 5. Ejected the iPod, then re-connected it
At this point, iTunes detected my iPod just fine! I went through the restore procedure as a precaution; because I have no idea what this directory really contains.
I realize that the circumstances surrounding my successful restore are somewhat unique, and probably don't apply to very many other situations, which is why I described some of the quirky things (like the icon showing up as an external hard drive) in detail at the beginning of this. Don't attempt it if you're not comfortable with what I described, or if your iPod has different symptoms!
