Unfortunately if your iPod Touch is locked and you cannot recall the pass code to unlock it, you will have to perform a factory restore, in order to clear your iPod Touch of that previous pass code.
The good thing is, even though you will wipe all your current data on your iPod Touch, after the factory restore, you can restore your most current back up through iTunes to restore the data back to your iPod.
To restore your iPod Touch is simple: * Be sure you restore your iPod Touch on the same computer or notebook that your previous iPod Touch backup files or stored.
* Now, make sure you are using the latest version of iTunes. • Be sure your iPod Touch is correctly connected to computer or notebook .
• Finally, in the left column under DEVICES, click on your iPod Touch, then click on Restore under the Summary tab.
* Allow the process to complete and your iPod Touch will be restored to its original factory default settings.
* Now simply re-sync your iPod Touch with iTunes and this is where your last sync now comes into play. When you sync after the restore, iTunes will look for your iPod Touch's previous backup and per your permission, will restore your most recent backup to your device. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
This time, when you set up your pass code... Make sure to write it down somewhere or in a place that is easily accessible and a in a place that you won't soon forget.
In order to enable your disabled iPod Touch, you'll have to completely reset it. Turn off the iPod Touch and when it turns back on the first thing to appear will be an Apple logo. Connect the iPod Touch to the computer it is paired with when this logo appears. Once it appears in iTunes, choose the "Restore" option and that will update the software and restore the iPod Touch.
