    My friend asked me to unlock his iPod because he had forgotten his passcode, and now it's disabled. It says "iPod is disabled - connect to iTunes", but when I plugged it in, iTunes just said that it couldn't connect cause it has a passcode, blah, blah... Anyways, how can I type in the passcode when I can't get a passcode prompt?

    Repeatedly bash it with a rock until it works?

    Or you could just DFU and restore it...

    No. He doesn't want it restored. I find it very retarded that it says connect to itunes and itunes rejects it.

    If it is jailbroken, SSH and reset all settings by deleteing "com.apple.springboard"
    (Found in
    var/mobile/Library/Preferences/com.apple.springboard)
    May work for you, it had an effect with this user.

    Hereis a more complicated process, which may work for 2.x.
    Just trial and error really. I can't comment since I have never had any reason to use the passcode thus any of the methods.

    If it isn't jailbroken, gonna have to do restore like Meikura stated.

    No use. He probably doesn't have SSH installed.
