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 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 got to do is a simple restore using your iTunes

Follow the steps that i have outlined below. If this does not completely help your situation please let me know and i will be glad to assist you. According to Apple, if you have forgotten the code, you can unlock the IPod by doing the following: 1 If you can't unlock IPod using either [the code or connecting it to the computer you use to manage
its songs. . . Plug the iPod USB cable into the bottom of the iPod Nano. 2 Plug the other end of the iPod USB cable into a free USB port on a Mac or PC computer. 3 Open the iTunes application by clicking on the Dock icon on a Mac or using the Start menu on a PC. 4 Click on the name of your iPod Nano under the "Devices" list in the iTunes window. 5 Click on the "Sync" button to establish a connection between your iPod and the computer. 6 Click on the eject symbol next to your iPod's name after the syncing process has finished. 7 Unplug your iPod Nano. The device will be unlocked and you will be able to access all normal features
again. if that does not work you can restore your iPod to factory settings using iPod Updater. Please note
that this will erase all data on your iPod. Afterwards, you can add your music and data back to your iPod. If you want to change the primary computer that your IPod is associated with, do this: 1. Restore your iPod. WARNING: The restore process cannot be undone. All of your songs and files will be deleted. Always make a backup of your important data. 2. Connect your iPod to the computer that you want to be the primary computer. 3. Open iTunes and synchronize. Apple also notes that company "representatives 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." If you need further assistance please feel free to follow up with a comment and i will be here to
assist you. If this assisted you please feel free to rate the comment. thanks and have a great day. Good Luck,

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.

I forgot my ipod touch password and i cant get into it and the first computer i sync it to i do have


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.

My ipod is disabled


While your itouch is connected to your computer, and itunes is open, press and hold the sleep/off button (the one on the top of the itouch) until the slider comes up on the screen. Slide the slider to turn off the itouch. Now, press and hold the home button (the one right below the screen) and at the same time, press the off/sleep button again. Hold both until you see your itunes page bring up a "restore" feature. Unfortunately, when restoring, you will lose all data (songs, etc..) Hopefully, you have this data in itunes and can easily download it back onto your itouch. This is the only thing that works. Sucks that you lose everything, but at least your itouch will once again work....

My iTouch is disabled but my dad deleted my iTunes off my laptop:


if your father deleted your song library then you will have to download your music again.
same with your apps
if your restore all that will do is load a new copy of your ipod software in the ipod.
it won't help with getting your songs back
it will help with removing the password lock.

Someone put a password on my itouch and dont know the password


HI,


unfortunatly 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.

I hope this helps,

Nathan.

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.
