Good day,

I came across a few situations where someone has forgotten their iPod's passcode and now can't use it.

I will give some instructions on how to possibly repair this problem.

The first thing you can try is to connect your Ipod to it's HOME Computer. This will normally override the lock. Only thing is that you need the lock code to be able to assign a new code.

Another method I came across is to connect your Ipod to a computer. Make sure you are able to see all hidden folders. Browse to your Ipod on My Computer and double click on your Ipod folder/location. Open the folder named "iPod_Control" inside the folder open the folder "Device". Inside the device folder rename the file "_locked" to "_unlocked".

These two methods has worked for me in the past, so please feel free to let me know if this help you!

Regards

How to unlock 4 digit ipod lock ?


that is not a problem follow the steps below. If you cannot remember the passcode, you will need to restore your device using the computer with
which you last synced it. This allows you to reset your passcode and resync the data from the
device (or restore from a backup). If you restore on a different computer that was never synced
with the device, you will be able to unlock the device for use and remove the passcode, but your
data will not be present 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

How can i unlock my ipod nano cause i forgot the password


Hi,
If you can’t remember the current combination, the only way to clear it and enter a new one is to restore the iPod nano software.
You can use iTunes to update or restore iPod software.
If you choose to restore, all data is erased from iPod nano, including songs, videos, files, contacts, photos, calendar information, and any other data. All iPod nano settings are restored to their original state.
Thank You

How to unlock ipod


To unlock your iPod you can plug it into the computer and then diconnect it. If you forgot or dont know the passcode once you disconnect it from the computer go into the settings on the ipod and change the passcode or just restore the iPod. If you restore the iPod though it will remove everything on it and all settings on it. Then it will reinstall the operating system and then you will have to sync everything back to it.

My Ipod is locked and my son forgot the code. How do I unlock it? It's an ipod nano A1236 and i have already tried a lot of codes and it dosen't work.


If you forgot your passcode for your Nano, then you will have to do a restore on your Nano which you'll have to do via iTunes; which will erase all data on your Nano, and restore all settings to factory default.
There is no other way to recover your passcode if you forgot it.
Once you run a recovery via iTunes you can re-add your music, etc.

Forgot passcode for ipod nano model a1199


Hi trollingston,

You should be able to unlock the iPod using Itunes. Plug the iPod into the computer that you normally use to update it, open iTunes and then synch the iPod. That should unlock it. When you unplug the iPod from the computer it should operate normally.

Best Regards,
Ken
