forgot screen lock code, how can i unlock it?
Is this a good question?
you can try several things to unlock your iPod
1) connect your iPod to the first computer you sync'ed it to. Open iTunes, then disconnect your iPod. Your iPod *should* be unlocked now
2) if you don't mind erasing all the contents of your iPod, then restore your iPod. This will remove the passcode lock and restore your iPod to original factory condition.
3) I hear that if your iPod supports disk mode - i.e. can be mounted on your Mac/PC as a USB attached drive, then it may be possible to unlock your iPod without doing a restore. This involves deleting a normally hidden file on the iPod - this file is located on the iPod in:
iPod_Control/Devices - in that directory will be a file named _locked. You want to delete that file (or rename to _unlocked)
on the Mac, you need to run a couple commands in Terminal to [enable the Finder to display hidden files] in order to find this file on your iPod. On Windows, you can set an option in Explorer in Tools-Folder Options-View-Hidden files and folders-show hidden files and folders.
this 3rd method I've not tried myself as I don't have nano to try it (which supports disk mode and has a passcode lock)
I have the same problem but I found a website that could help. Here is the link unfortunately I have not tried it yet but if you could tell me if it worked I would appreciate it. Good Luck :D
How do i get my ipod unlocked its not a touch screen its a nano. My problem is... I have no way of getting the password to this due to it being a old friend of mines ipod... We lost touch a while back...
I was finally able to charge it after 3 months... Now i forgot about there being a 4-digit password... I don't want to reset it .... It has much valued stuff on it.... Is there anything or anyone who can help me?
