    I was reading about who to unlock a passcoded iPod Touch.

    If I can access the primary computer of iPod, I can use the iTunes' restore button. But, if I cannot access access the primary computer? iTunes don't access a locked iPod unless it is the primary computer

    I read that if I cannot access the primary computer, I can connect my iPod to any computer and press the sleep/wake and the home button for a few seconds and it will be restored to default settings and the passcode will be remove.

    But, I phoned Apple and they said pressing home + sleep/wake button in a connected iPod for a few seconds will only reboot the iPod software, and it will not be restored.

    Now, I don't know if home + sleep/wake will or will not restore the iPod to factory settings and remove the passcode. Have anyone here tested it?

    I will not answer this question nor should anyone else. Cause the ipod pass-code is only number, there should be no way you could have forgotten it. And I will not help someone who possible stole a pass-code locked ipod.

    So you're posting to say that you won't post.

    I'm going to give this guy the benefit of the doubt, because I have forgotten number codes before, it isn't impossible.

    You obviously cant read. What you asked apple was not what it says here. Nor will they ever admit to something that is involved in the jailbreak process.

    And Danls i did not say i wasnt going to post, i said i wouldnt answer his question.

    It doesnt matter that YOU are not doing the jailbreak. Apple wont admit to something that can be used for it or to downgrade firmware. They cant tell you that it will work or not in fear of loosing their job.
