    Not a stolen ipod or anything. please read I'll try to make it quick.

    I had a ipod touch 4th gen that fell into water. Home button broke so I jailbroke it and installed a program that enabled me to re-porgram the home button. So now if I push both volume buttons it acts as if my home button is being pushed.
    I used jailbreak to jailbreak since that didn't require me to go into DFU mode.

    Anyhow I never used this since I got an iphone. I recently sold it to an employees 13 yr old son who put a password on it. He doesn't know what the password is and has given it back to me to fix. I have looked online and it seems like they all require to go into DFU mode. It will not go into DFU mode with the home button hack.

    So how do I get pass the password without having to restore? It is still linked to my itunes but I can't restore as new because if I do it will upgrade me to the newest iOS, and I will not be able to jailbreak using jailbreakme.

    Any suggestions??

    Connect to iTunes computer of current owner and it should work w/out a password and go from there.

    Connect and do what?? It is still locked. Running ios 4.3.1 if that makes a difference.

    There's software online that can put an iDevice into DFU mode. Look up "DFU Mode Software" and you should be able to easily find something useful.
