You must restore it so you can use it again. First, you need to put it to DFU mode so iTunes will let you restore it without restriction. Here's how you can do that:

  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):

IPod 4 is disabled


Heres what you must do,However, be aware that this process will erase all data on your iPod Touch. To fix the disabled problem, you must go into DFU Mode and restore.

DFU Mode

  1. Connect your iPod to your computer
  2. Turn your iPod Off
  3. Press and hold the power button for 3 Seconds
  4. While continuing to hold the Power button, press the home button as well for 10 seconds
  5. While holding down the home button, release the power button for another 10 seconds
  6. iTunes should detect the iPod in recovery mode, press OK, and restore your iPod, from this point forward you may release the buttons. If you have not reached this point, then you have not entered DFU Mode

Your iPod should be running again after this process. From this point you can restore from a backup, if there is one present.

How can I unlock a disabled ipod touch?


Step 1:
The iPod Touch is a type of iPod that features a touch screen and can function as both a portable media player and as a pocket computer. It is possible to password protect your iPod Touch so that you will have to enter a password every time you want to unlock the iPod Touch screen. If you repeatedly enter the incorrect passcode, your iPod Touch will become disabled. To unlock a disabled iPod Touch, you need to sync your iPod Touch device with iTunes on your computer.

Attach the iPod Touch data cable to the bottom of your iPod Touch device and attach the other end of the data cable to an available USB port on your computer. Open iTunes on your computer and then select your iPod Touch device from the list of available devices on the left side of the iTouch window. Click the "Restore" button. If you have previously backed up your iPod Touch, you can choose to restore the device to the last back up or any saved backup. If you have never backed up your iPod Touch, this process will restore your iPod Touch's factory settings. Wait while iTunes syncs with your iPod Touch and restores the device. iTunes will prompt you when this process is complete.

My ipod is on disable mode and i can't disable it


If the iPod is in Recovery mode, you can use programs like ZiPhone or iNdependance. If your iPod is in DFU mode, then hold the home button and power button down at the same time to exit DFU mode. If the iPhone is in DFU mode because it was unplugged in the middle of a restore, then you'll have to restore the iPod, which will unfortunately delete everything on it.
