    My iPod touch currently has the passcode lock option enabled, to discourage thievery. However, I have read that people can simply restore the iPod in iTunes and it's theirs.

    1) Is this true?
    2) If it is true, is there something I can do to make my iPod totally secure, so that if it is stolen, they can't do anything with it?

    Yeah, if they can get it into DFU mode, it's completely theirs. There's really nothing you can do about that.

    well bottom line on this thread's topic is

    yes you can take over someone's stolen ipod if you know how to make a ipod touch/iphone go into dfu mode.

    but if you restore it will say you need password (this will be more like people who dont know what dfu or recovery is
