    This is for anyone who may have parents that like to control everything including what's on their childrens iPod/iPhone. Luckily I do not have that problem (; But for those of you whose parents have put parental control on your iPod/iPhone and refuse to tell you the password I'm going to tell you how to get it.

    Here's how to do it; Have SSH or iFile installed, open iFile or use and SSH client and navigate to "var/mobile/Library/Preferences/com.applespringboard.plist" Open the plist and scroll to the section you see in the screenshot below;

    Nice find! I don't think that many parents actually use those parental controls, but who knows.
