All you have to do is a hard reset of the ipod touch. However, keep in mind this will wipe the iPod completely. Here is how you do the reset...

Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button at the same time for at least ten seconds.

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


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.

Cant unlock passcode have tryed through itunes to resore but it still wont unlock I have forgotten my passcode


Try to hold down the power and home keys down for about 15 seconds each while plugged into itunes. When the screen goes black, release the power button but make sure to keep holding the home key until iTunes says; We have detected an itouch in recovery mode.

From there you can restore as normal via iTunes.

There is a simple solution to this problem, just hold down the "Home" button (one on the front) and the reset/power button(one on top) for about 15 seconds, or until you see the apple logo. Then when you see the logo, plug the iPod into your computer.

Ipod touch is disabled itunes won't connect says the ipod needs a passcode before connecting to itunes


If you have forgotten your iPhone’s Passcode you will need to restore your phone via iTunes.

1. First you have to put your phone into the restore mode which is a slightly fiddly process.
2. Plug your iPhone into your PC or Mac with the USB cable
3. Press and hold the power button at the top and then slide to power off the iPhone
4. Press the power button to power the iPhone on and keep it held while simultaneously pressing the home button
5. After a few seconds a yellow alert triangle will appear and the iPhone will say it is iPhone Restore Mode.
6. Open up iTunes and click on the Summary tab
7. Click on Restore to restore your iPhone. This will reset all your iPhone’s setting to the factory defaults, including the Passcode.

You should then follow these steps below to activate the passcode again.
  1. Click the Home button to bring up the main menu
  2. Click on Settings
  3. In the Settings screen click on General
  4. In the General screen click on Passcode Lock
  5. This will open the Set Passcode screen. Enter a memorable 4-figure code and re-enter it when prompted
  6. You will now be at the Passcode Lock screen. You can change when you are prompted to enter the Passcode. The default setting – Immediately – means you will be asked to enter it as soon as your start using the iPhone. But you can change the setting so that the prompt appears after a certain period of use
  7. Press the Home button to return to the main menu.

Passcode screen does not come on, says connect to itunes


Restoring it will not fix this problem. What you need to do is force it into recovery mode. Click the link and it will show you how. This happened to me while I was in a foreign country... I can feel your pain. This works!

Shows to connect to itunes on the screen


The ipod should let you do a restore in itunes with the computer that last synced the ipod. This is the only way to remove the passcode.

If it wont simply show up on the computer, plug the ipod in, hold the power button and then slide to power off. Press the power button, as soon as the apple logo appears press and hold both the top power button and the home button together until the orange triangle appears. This should put the iPhone into restore mode, open itunes and restore.
