    You need to just hold down the home button to turn it on when its connected to itunes, itunes will detect this automatically, or do a restore on it.

    Is your iPod touch frozen or not operating as expected? These tips will help you resolve most common issues. iPod touch Troubleshooting Assistant

    First try this help : How to restore iPod . Connect the iPod to iTunes and restore it from iTunes and it will rest everything including the pass code.

    If you have tried to restore your iPod touch using iTunes and are unable to do so, try this help to force the device into recovery mode: iPhone and iPod touch: Unable to restore

    Hi Dawit.. Did you checked the very first solution ? It is for the same if your ipod is freezed and not even allowing you to enter passcode. Try this solution:

    I have never used iPhone or iPod but as i can see above, i think you can get reset you restriction code by doing reset to your iPod and when you connect again with iTunes, you can set a new code. You can see the 2nd post:

    Well, if you have forgotten your password on ipod and cannot enable it then the only way is to connect it to your computer and restore it. You have to restore it through iTunes and no harm will be done, you'll just have to re-sync all of your stuff, and re-jailbreak if you've done so already. Basically, your ipod will be like it was out of the box, no worries.

    Here i have the below two possible solution for you:
    • First simply Place the iPod in Recovery mode and after that just connect it to the computer and after that use iTunes for restoring the phone.
    • second is resetting the ipod by holding down the 'sleep/wake' button and 'home' button at the same time and then connect the ipod to the computer, once you get the Apple logo you will get the "Restore" option for updating the software & restore.

    Just try out these possible solution and then let me know if they are helping or not.
