If your iPod touch is locked by a 4-digit passcode, the only way to get past it is to force the unit into restore mode by doing the following:


1. Start iTunes and Plug the iPod touch in to your computer via the sync cable. This could be firewire and/or USB.


2. Hold the sleep/wake button(the button at the top) and the menu button(round button at the bottom) down at the same time. Keep them both pressed until you see the 'restore' screen (an iPod cable and an iTunes disc symbol) on the iPod touch. If the ipod turns off or shows the "Slide to power down", just wait and try again. It takes about 10 seconds. Once the restore screen shows, Release the buttons.


3. Windows should quickly "install driver software" for a few seconds. iTunes should now display the iPod touch, along with a message that the iPod touch is in recovery mode. Click the RESTORE button in iTunes to restore the iPod touch.


Please note that doing this will erase the contents of the iPod touch -- that's how the system is designed to work: a passcode lock is meant to protect the data on the iPod.

Unlock a disabled 5th generation ipod touch


Hi ernie...
If you have forgotten the code or put the wrong code in your ipod, 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.
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.

Ipod touch is disabled and wont let me put in my pass code to unlock it when i get to itunes!


First, be sure to fully verify you have the right passcode.

If you set up your options on the iPod touch to do a data wipe after 10 incorrect codes, it will wipe the data from your iPod after trying 10 times incorrectly.

If you forgot your passcode or it just isn't working, you may want to do a restore of your iPod touch, either from scratch and do a full re-sync or from your latest backup

From scratch, plug in your iPod to iTunes, and click on it when it shows in the device list on the left side. Click the restore button, and follow the prompts.

From a backup: right click the iPod in the device list and choose "restore from backup" from there choose the backup that is closest to the date before you had the problem.

Why is my iPod touch disabled for 5009752 minutes


The iPod touch is disabled when the incorrect unlock code is entered too many times. The time the iPod makes you wait increases each time an incorrect unlock code is entered.

There are two ways you should be able to unlock the iPod.
First, connect the iPod to the computer it was last synced with. After iTunes recognizes the iPod, you should be able to enter your unlock code and unlock the iPod.

If the first method doesn't work or you don't remember your unlock code, then do this:
1) Turn the iPod off.
2) Hold down the Home button and connect the iPod to the computer it was last synced with.
3)Release the Home button when the iTunes image appears of the iPod's screen.
4)Wait for iTunes to recognize the iPod and then follow the onscreen directions to restore the iPod.

If neither method works, you will need to contact Apple Customer Support.

My 8GB ipod touch is disabled and showing connect to itunes


Hopefully the option wasnt selected to delete the ipod after a certain number of incorrect passcode entries.

When you connect your ipod to itunes its going to reformat it.
(meaning it gets erased, they do it as a precaution)

DONT FORGET THE CODE NEXT TIME!
