Ok, here is the deal, and i would like to try anything to fix it(just about). I bought a 8 gig ipod touch 2nd gen from ebay for $35, i have put a new screen in it and touch screen, now i can see whats going on with this thing. so what it does that is confusing me is when i power it on, i have a picture of earth, the screen is saying itunes is disabled, it is showing that it is locked and says to connect to itunes. so i hook it to the computer and it says i need to put the password into the ipod, dont have the password and cant get it, either way the ipod doesnt give me the option to do that. i was going to try to do a restore but the on/off button doesnt seem to be working as in i cannot get the ipod to shut off without draining the battery, i can press it and hold it, and it doesnt do anything so i was wondering if maybe i need to buy the power flex strip and volume since its all in one, tell me if you think thats correct. but what i really wanted to know is there a way i can unlock this thing without the power button working, the touch isnt responding either i guess because its locked, any thoughts would be great. thanks in advance.
