Resoting a passcode-locked iPor touch over iTunes will never work. iTunes will only tell you to unlock the passcode first before you can do anything on it. The only trick here is to put the you iPod touch to DFU mode in order fot the restore to proceed. And to do that, here are the steps:

  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):

How to fix a disabled ipod 4th generation touch

Put the ipod into recovery mode and connect to itunes. itunes will offer to reset the device to factory install (current iOS will be downloaded and installed). This will wipe all contents on the ipod, but you can restore all purchases from Apple store.
If you happen to have a backup you can restore from that unless that backup is too new and contains the forgotten password.

recovery mode: If you can't update or restore your iPhone iPad or iPod touch

Recover from a Forgotten iPhone or iPod Touch Passcode

If you have forgotten your passcode on your iPhone or iPod Touch, you will need to do a restore in iTunes, but you must first put the phone in "restore mode." However, when you do a forced restore on iphone, you will wipe all content from the iphone, there is no other way around this. To put the phone in restore mode, hold the HOME button while the phone or ipod is off. Then, connect it to the USB cable and continue holding for a LONG time (or as long as it takes until you see a screen with a cable and the itunes logo). Once iTunes responds that it sees a connection in recovery mode, click restore and it will reload the phone/ipod to factory settings, and will be free of the forgotten password.

I forgot password for screen lock on ipod

The only way I can think of is by connecting it to iTunes and trying to restore it. If that fails, maybe try updating it to the most recent iOS for your generation of device.

My ipod is disabled, i have forgotten my password?

Try plugging your iPod into your computer, then restoring it through iTunes. First, make sure everything you need is backed up, because this will delete everything off of your iPod before restoring it to the original factory settings.

Forgotten password for ipod touch how do i unlock or fix it?

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.
