Unfortunately the only way to bypass it is with a forced restore: The forgotten password for iPod touch will have to be restored through iTunes. For which the iPod will have to be put into restore mode, which can be a slightly messy process.

  • The first step is to plug your iPod touch to your PC or Mac with the USB cable. In other words, in case you do not have your laptop computer with you, you will not be able to go through the process right now.
  • Now hold the sleep/wake button and the menu button on the iPod at the same time.
  • Keep the buttons pressed, till you see the 'restore' screen on the iPod touch. The restore screen will have an iPod cable and an iTunes disc symbol. When the restore screen appears, release the buttons.
  • With this iTunes will display iPod touch. At the same time, there will be a message displayed, that the iPod touch is in recovery mode.
  • You will now have to click on the 'Restore' button in iTunes to restore iPod touch.

SOURCE: my ipod touch is disabled

This is how you can recover your device:

  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 and some screenshots on my tip (link below):
