    So I was at my friends house today.
    Now being the kind of friend he is, he decides to take my iPod Touch and type in a random 4 digit combo.
    He doesn't know what it is (Because it was random), and I don't either :/

    How can I remove it in iTunes :l

    Thanks.

    The only way to recover your iPod touch is by restoring. What you want to do is, plug it into iTunes and allow the device to fully sync. I repeat, fully. Then, click restore. Allow it to restore and then when prompted, select restore from backup.

    It certainly will. The same thing happened with one of my friends. However, it will take around an hour, so don't be worried if it seems like nothing is happening.

    Well, I'm pretty sure the password is gone.
    But as of now, I'm reinstalling all of my apps, because I think I messed something up. But anyways, It's a good chance for me to organize them.

    Restoring as a backup will still reinstall all applications and music on the device. Restoring as a backup allows you to keep the same settings, notes and etc.

    Thanks.
    I don't really have much to reinstall, but it's this whole thing is kinda stupid.

    Just in case someone does this again.. Is this what you do?
    1. DFU mode.
    2. Restore from Back-up.
    3. Wait forever.

    You don't HAVE to put it into DFU Mode, but it might speed up the process a bit. But the rest of the steps are correct. Don't forget to sync before restoring.

    Revised then.

    1. Wait till it's done syncing.
    2. DFU mode.
    3. Restore from Back-Up.
    4. Wait.

    So yeah, things are going smoothly, I'm reinstalling the apps and my music/videos, but that won't take much longer.

    Thanks for your help.
