    Anyone know of way to remove the passcode without losing my jailbreak? I haven't turned on my 6 since getting the 6s, and apparently I didn't use the normal passcode I have used for... well, forever lol.

    I can simply restore the phone and clear it, fine, but I don't want to lose the jailbreak on it.

    Any ideas?

    Connect it to the computer you might have used w iTunes w it and see if it lets you access wout the passcode.

    Thanks for the suggestion. I just tried it, and it shows up in iTunes, but that's about it. The screen even says that it's disabled and to connect it to iTunes lol. I might be missing a step, or missing something here.

    Ugh. I mean, clearing it isn't really a problem. I just need to look at some info that was sent via text messages for some accounts I need to log onto. I can't believe I didn't remove the passcode before turning it off back in October lol.

    Rookie mistake.

    I was going to go ahead and try and back the phone up, wipe it clean, and restore with the backup; hoping I wouldn't lose the information I needed.

    Well, it wouldn't do the backup without the passcode lol. The good news is, as long as it was cabled to iTunes, I could keep entering passcodes lol.

    I eventually got the right code. LMBO. So, all is good now. I disabled the touch ID and passcode lol.

    If its disabled then you tried the wrong passcode on it way too many times. There's nothing you can do.
    Connect it to itunes and restore it. See if it lets you back it up with itunes before the restore.
    How do you setup a passcode on your phone and then dont remember it?

    yes, I absolutely put too many passcodes that weren't correct lol. I did connect to iTunes, and hit restore. It wouldn't let me lol, without putting in the passcode. However, it seemed to have given me unlimited tries to enter a passcode while it was connected to the computer where it was registered with iTunes.

    I did finally figure out the code.

    Your question, "How do you setup a passcode on your phone and then don't remember it"...

    The last time I used it was in Oct. of last year. I have a TBI (look it up) and have a real problem with retaining memory, especially for things I don't repeat throughout the day.

    Overall, I knew I could restore it via DFU, but I would have lost the information that was still on the phone. I was lucky to guess the proper code, and all has been sorted. The passcode has been removed lol.

    Yeah, it was a stupid code too.. numbers for TEST lol. I think I did it as a test to see if my daughters could figure it out; or for me to figure out lol.

    Right, and each number on the dial pad that is used for PIN entry as well has some letters associated with it, so the PIN is basically the numbers that would spell out TEST (kind of like dialing a phone number like 1-800-FLOWERS).

    I opened this thread a few days ago to find some newbie looking to bypass the code of a stolen or lost phone.

    Nice to see one of these threads/questions that are genuine. Also glad you got it worked out.

    Thanks Will22. I had the same thought when posting it lol. "People will think I have a stolen phone or something" lol.

    I was going to post a picture of it having my name (without the "I") in place of the carrier lol.

    It would look just fine for sure. It's all about you being you. I've always changed the carrier name on my phones.

    Connecting to a computer to assist in your iOS device only works if you have used the phone in that computer so a stolen phone won't work w any other to get it Unlocked.
