    I let a few people see my jailbroken iPod touch today and I ended up getting it back with a passcode lock.

    I then proceeded to get this wrong multiple times, next time I enter it wrong theres a 1 hour delay :(

    The only thing I can still do with it in this disabled state is listen to music with the double-tap of the home button.

    Is there anyway to remove the passcode without doing a restore?

    If you dock it with the host computer the lock should be turned off

    no luck
    I've tried connecting it to both itunes on my mac, and the pc but still get the enter passcode screen.

    Do I have to enter the passcode wrong until the ipod goes disabled and then connect it to the computer?

    force it into restore mode, and restore. No other way.

    yeah... That's why I am very protective of mine. And I have a passcode on it.

    Lesson to be learned.

    Just restore. Its the only way. Also keep watch over it at all times if your going to let other people use it.

    HTH.

    It could be stolen as it should work when connected to its regular computer.

    Let the battery run down before restoring, it's worth a shot.

    actually, I am wrong it takes way longer to just restore.. Since you have to reinstall all your apps...
    OP: if you know who did it, bug them for the passcode.
