How to restore iPod

  1. Ensure that you have an active Internet connection as new versions of iTunes and iPod Software may need to be downloaded to your computer.
  2. Download and install the latest version of iTunes if you do not already have it installed.
  3. Open iTunes, and then connect your iPod to your computer using the USB or FireWire cable that came with your iPod.
  4. After a few moments, your iPod will appear in the Source panel in iTunes.
  5. Select your iPod in the Source panel and you will see information about your iPod appear in the Summary tab of the main iTunes windows.
  6. Click the Restore button. You will be prompted with one or more restore options that may prompt iTunes to automatically download the latest iPod Software. The 4 possible restore options are:
    • Restore Option 1: Restore - Restores with same iPod Software version already on iPod.
    • Restore Option 2: Use Same Version - Restores with same iPod Software version already on iPod even though a newer version is available.
    • Restore Option 3: Use Newest Version - Restores with the latest iPod Software available.
    • Restore Option 4: Restore and Update - Restores with the latest iPod Software available.
  7. If you are using a Mac, a message will appear prompting you to enter an administrator’s name and password.
  8. A progress bar will appear on the computer screen indicating that the first stage of the restore process has started. When this stage is completed, iTunes will present one of two messages on screen with instructions specific to the iPod model you are restoring.
    • Restore Instruction 1: Disconnect iPod and connect it to iPod Power Adapter (typically applies to older iPod models).
    • Restore Instruction 2: Leave iPod connected to computer to complete restore (typically applies newer iPod models).
  9. During the stage 2 of the restore process, the iPod will show an Apple logo as well as a progress bar at the bottom of the display. It is critical that the iPod remains connected to the computer or iPod Power adapter during this stage. Note: The progress bar may be difficult to see since the backlight on the iPod display may be off.
  10. After stage 2 of the restore process is complete and the iPod is connected to the computer, the iTunes Setup Assistant window will appear asking you to name your iPod and choose your syncing preferences similar to when you connected your iPod for the first time.

SOURCE: forgot screen unlock code

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_Control\Device\ (where X is the drive letter of the iPod)
  • Find the file called "_locked" and open it with Notepad or TextEdit
now u should get some thing like : Vôáijåö\féúPbíþT~ñâHzõæLvùê@rýîD as the text but its not that con fusing to show here are two diffrent codes

Vôáijåö\féúPbíþT~ñâHzõæLvùê@rýîD
the same!
]óãhjåö\féúPbíþT~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

0000

How to screen unlock my apple ipod ?. pleace tale me the code.


If you have a code to input then it will be one that you put in. If you cannot remember it or do not have it, then download the latest version of itunes from apple.com and plug your ipod into the computer. Then click on the ipod image on the left hand pane of the screen and when the ipod page opens choose to retore, this will take the ipod back to its original settings.

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.
