    Well my 8 year old brother somehow screwed up my iPhone so it is at the passcode screen, and my iPhone is disabled for 22,016,818 minutes, or about 41 years. Anyone know how to fix this? Ready to jailbreak if needed(if it's possible without the passcode). If you don't believe me, i can upload pictures. Also, he said he changed my passcode, so it would be nice if anyone had a brute-force hacking tool, or maybe a keychain decrypter.

    Thanks,

    Jaeela

    I believe you, can we still see pics?

    You should just be able to restore it, by the way...

    jw, do you have to have a passcode to jailbreak? if I can jailbreak it I could copy the keychain-2.db file and use some third-party decoder couldn't I? I also heard that a company named elcomsoft has a brute force cracker.

    If you have a recent backup it'll probably be a lot faster to just restore ... and punch your brother. That'll make you feel better ;)

    Well, the only method of jailbreak that does NOT require a computer, requires you to browse to jailbreakme.com, which would require the passcode. Where are you now that you don't have access to a computer? Western Mongolia?

    I have access to a computer, just not the one that I last synced with(actually I never synced with this computer), so when I open iTunes it says it cannot connect to it because the passcode is not entered. Something like that, idr.

    I think you might be SOL unless you talk to Apple and see what they can do..regardless, you will be unable to unlock it since it's just a paperweight at this time..either try a restore, or maybe a hard reset? Idk. Hold the power button and home button until it restarts, it'll take longer than a normal boot, but maybe that will work. Doubt it though. might have to turn it off, plug in the USB cable and hold the home button. It will put it in I believe recovery mode and will force you to restore.


    I'd also tell your brother he is banned from touching your things unless he has your permission..22 million minutes.. 0_o

    Why not just ask your brother for the new passcode?

    Well, the good news is by then you'll be elegible for an upgrade. Should be the iPhone 22S or thereabouts.

    And next....why would anyone let an 8 year old play with their phone, or leave it where they could snag it?

    Hell, I won't let other adults play with my phone!

    I'm smelling the salmon I made for dinner....

    Did no one notice that the OP is complaining about an iPhone, yet the image that was uploaded says iPod?

    I didn't notice the OP was speaking about an iPhone in the content of the post. The title does reference an iPod, however. Perhaps he has both and his typing fingers went on autopilot? People are too quick to accuse. Stolen or not, he has his answer (restore). At best, he knows to restore is legally purchased ipod when he gets to a computer. At worst he knows he needs to steal a computer with witch to restore his stolen iPod. :D

    I'm pretty sure that aside from synching from the computer you synched it to unlock it, you can put it in DFU mode (recovery - on/off button, home button hold for a LONG time while plugged into iTunes). Hope you have a recent backup.
