    So I completely forgot my iPod Touch password, which led to the "iPod Disabled, Please Connect To iTunes"

    I've tried to restore it, but I keep on getting either "Error 21" or "Error 1611"
    Does anybody know how I can restore it?

    Try force rebooting it into Recovery or DFU mode.

    Both of those error codes are usually related to security software. See this http://support.apple.com/kb/TS3694

    If another computer is available for the restore, it may be easier to try that than trying to troubleshoot security software issues.

    If you have Windows, check the hosts file, make sure it's not corrupt.

    Computer<C-drive<Windows<System32<drivers<ect<hosts

    Open file with notepad, remove all of the gs.apple.com crap, then click save in notepad and X off. If Notepad won't let you save, thats a minor glitch, just move the hosts file to desktop and it will work.

    LMK what happens...:)
