    Ok so i've read everything on rebooting/restoring it and it's just not working out..

    I have a 16GB iPod Touch version 8.0.2 and I forgot the code. All iTunes does when I plug it in is say iTunes cannot access your iPod because you must enter the passcode.. well I've tried everything I could and now it's disabled and keeps saying connect to iTunes.. there is no 'restore' option.. My primary computer crashed so I can't do anything with it.... I've tried the whole "holding the home + sleep/awake button for 20 seconds, etc." but nothing seems to work.

    Please Help!!!!!!!

    There are two options:

    1. Plug in iPod while it is turned ON, iTunes should start syncing it normally.

    2. If 1 doesn't work, try DFU restore, and force it to restore then the passcode shall be erased.

    Steps:

    1. Plug in iPod
    2. While plugged in, hold home button and power button.
    3. By holding those buttons, iPod should reboot, once it does let go of the power button but keep holding the home button.
    4. Keep holding the home button until iTunes recognizes the iPod, from there the only option is to restore.

    that is the next app Apple should make for your mac/windows computer. Is an app that reaches into the firmware and resets the password.

    Yup - iPod thieves need another tool to make it easier to use their stolen goods.

    I'd bet yes, but we'd need a mod to be certain.
