    I posted this for you the first time around you didnt bother to read it!!

  • Ekse Jul 02, 2008

    if you don't know the passcode you can force the ipod into recovery mode and then restore it that removes the code.

    read this page for instructions on how to put it in recovery

    http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1808

    then do the restore

    Restore


    • Note: Because Restore erases all of the songs and files on iPod, make sure to back up any files you've saved on the iPod disk. All of your songs, videos, podcasts, audiobooks, and games can be loaded back to your iPod provided that you have them stored in your iTunes Library.

    How to restore your iPod:
    For Windows:


    • 1. Make sure you've reinstalled the latest version of iTunes.
    • 2. Open iTunes, and then connect your iPod to your computer.
    • 3. After a few moments, it will appear in the source list in iTunes.
    • 4. Select your iPod in the source list and you will see information about it appear in the Summary tab of the main iTunes windows.
    • 5. Click the Restore button. You will be prompted with one or more restore options that may prompt iTunes to automatically download of 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 on your computer.
      • Restore Option 4: Restore and Update - Restores with the latest iPod Software on your computer.

    • 6. 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 instruct you to leave iPod connected to your computer to complete restore.
    • 7. 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.
    • 8. 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.

IPOD TOUCH IS DISABLED AND LOCKED


According to Apple, if you have forgotten the code, you can unlock the IPod by doing the following:
Connect your IPod to the primary computer you use it with (the first one IPod synced with), and open iTunes.
When you disconnect iPod from the computer, it will no longer be locked.
If you can't unlock IPod using either [the code or connecting it to the computer you use to manage its songs]. . . 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."

I can not get my code to work on my ipod touch


The only way to reset it if you really do not know the password is to put it in restore mode and connect it to iTunes for a full restore. You cannot restore it in iTunes unless you are in restore mode since you do not have the password.
ALSO! Please know that once you put it in restore and connect to iTunes for the restore process, the apps and songs on the actual iPod Touch will be gone.
Anyway, to put the Touch in restore mode do this:
o put the iPhone / iPod Touch into recovery mode:
- Turn it off (hold the power button on the top down for a few seconds then slide the red slider across from left to right).
- Press and hold the home button (the button on the front, under the screen)
- While still holding the home button, plug it in to the computer
The screen should show something like this:
recoverymode.jpgiPhone / iPod Touch Recovery Mode
You should now be able to use iTunes to restore the iPhone / iPod Touch by clicking the Restore button.

Good luck!!

My ipod stoped doing anything, it is locked on screen with message saying I have to wait over 2 billion minutes which is calculated to the ripe old age of 73, cant do anything


The iPod touch becomes locked when an invalid unlock code is entered too many times.

There are two ways you should be able to unlock the iPod.

The first is to connect it to the computer it was last synced with. After iTunes recognizes it, you should be able to unlock it.

If that doesn't work or you can't remember your unlock code, you will need to put the iPod into recovery mode, and then restore the iPod through iTunes.

To do this:
1) Turn the iPod off.
2) Hold down the iPod's Home button and plug the iPod into the computer it was last synced with.
3) Release the Home button when the iTunes image appears on the iPod's screen.
4) Wait for iTunes to recognize that the iPod is in recovery mode, and then follow the onscreen instructions to restore the iPod.

Note: You may lose some of the information stored on the iPod.

If you cannot unlock the iPod after doing this, you will need to call Apple Customer Support.

My itouch says connect to itunes but it wont let me


You will want to reset the ipod and reconnect it to your computer. Below I have posted step by steps on three trouble shooting options. If after a reset it still will not connect to the computer, proceed to step two. Putting the iPod into recovery mode. Then if in recovery mode you can get it to connect to the computer, restore it to factory settings. Restoring it is listed as step three. I left the restore article normal in case you can get it to connect with just a simple reset.

1st reset

Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button at the same time for at least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears.

2nd RECOVERY MODE
Connect your USB cable to the computer without the iPod connected at the other end.

Power off the device (Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button for a few seconds until the red slider appears, then slide the slider. Wait for the the iPhone or iPod touch to turn off.

Press and hold the Home button while reconnecting the USB cable to iPhone. When you reconnect the USB to iPhone, the device should then power on.
Continue holding the Home button while iPod starts up. While starting up, you will see the Apple logo. When you see "Connect to iTunes" on the screen, you can release the Home button and iTunes will display the recovery mode message: iTunes has detected an iPod in recovery mode. You must restore this iPod before it can be used with iTunes.

If you don't see the "Connect to iTunes" screen, then disconnect the USB cable from iPod and repeat steps 3-6.
Because you must restore the iPod touch, iTunes will not recover data from the device, but if it was previously synced on the same computer and the same user account, it should restore a backup (if available)


RESTORE Use the following steps to restore your iPod touch:
Make sure you have the latest version of iTunes installed and running before attempting to update. Connect your iPod touch to your computer. Select your iPod touch when it appears in iTunes under Devices. Select the Summary tab. Select the Restore option. When prompted to back up your iPod touch's settings before restoring, select the Back Up option. If have just backed up the device, it is not necessary to create another.
Select the Restore option when iTunes prompts you
Once the restore process has completed the iPod touch restarts and displays the Apple logo while starting up

If none of this works and your iPod is still under a year old I would call apple. Make sure that you inform them of the trouble shooting you have already done though. They can tend to assume people don't do trouble shooting. GOOD LUCK

My ipod still won't do anything


If you're locked out, the only way back in, is to restore to factory default settings.

Try the following:
Make the iPod Touch go to Recovery Mode

If for some reason your iPod won't connect to iTunes, or whatever reason it is, you might need to make your iPod Touch into Recovery Mode. Here's how you could do that.

Makingyour device in Recovery Mode is irreversible. That means, once youexecute this, you can never get back your home screen until youcomplete the restore. So don't attempt this, because there's no room ifyou suddenly decides to change your mind. This method can also be knownas Manual Reset.

Step 1: Hold down the “Home” button

Step 2: Hold down the “Standby” button

Step 3: When it says “slide to turn off”, ignore it.

Step 4: It should restart with a blank screen. DO NOT LIFT THOSE BUTTONS YET.

Step 5: An “Apple” icon appears. You can lift the “Standby” button, but keep pressing the “Home” button

Step 6:Once you see a “connector” and an “iTunes” image (looks like when youjust bought it), that’s when it’s in Recovery mode. You can lift allthe buttons.

Perform a Manual Restore

Nowyou will need to perform a Manual Restore on it. The term "Manual", asthe name suggests, does not involve in using automated download viaiTunes. Instead, we are using iTunes do perform the Restore on the firmware we want.

See: Download the appropriate firmware

Step 1: Connect the iPod Touch, which is now in Recovery Mode

Step 2: Launch iTunes. iTunes will tell you that the iPod Touch is in Recovery Mode.

Step 3: Hold SHIFT while Left-click on Restore button. A file browser should come up. Select the appropriate firmware, then wait for the restoration to complete.
NOTE

You can also do this Restore if you want to downgrade firmware version 1.1.2 into anything else.

And viola! You should be kicked out of the misery, and start your hacking all over again.

How do i unlock an ipod with " ipod disabled".


If you are the original owner of the iPod just connect it to the computer that you first synced the device with.
If you have found an iPod that had a lock code on it and have attempted to guess the passwords incorrectly too many times, I recommend you do the right thing and give it back to the original owner if you can.
If you cannot find the original owner I see no point in letting a good piece of technology go to waste so follow these instructions.
1) Turn off the iPod by holding down the power button (button on the top) and sliding the slider across to shut it off.
2) Find your Sync Cable and Plug it into the computer (just the computer, not the iPod yet)
3) Open iTunes
4) Hold down the home button.  (Button at the bottom)  While still holding down the button connect the sync cable to the iPod.
This should put the iPod into recovery mode.  Once in recovery mode iTunes should pop up a message stating that it has detected an iPod in recovery mode and should allow you to restore it.  This will delete all of the data/music on the iPod but will allow you to use it as if it were new.
