If you forgot your Restrictions passcode:

- Restore to factory settings/new iPod.

Hi thanks for that..just confirmed what I had suspected...will start looking for that safe place soon...meantime any idea on why It wont let me install these apps...all I have done is disable safari and she should have access to youtube..she did on ios 4..she wants me to turn back from 6.01 to 4 so she can get youtube back..how easy is this and is it a good idea?
It is so frustrating.. the apps are set to sync, but all that comes up is uninstall and will uninstall..

All I can say in this Apple forum ios that downgrading the iOS is not supported by Apple.
It also sounds like you have other restirctions besides Safari set.

Resetting to factory condition erases everything from the iPod. You can then re-synchronize (or re-download) the apps, music and other content, but all documents, game data, etc will be lost unless, as lllaass said, there exists a backup made prior to the Restrictions passcode being set in which case you can restore that backup and get at least that much data back.
As to the YouTube app, that is not included in iOS 6. Google now is totally responsible for the app which is available for free in the iTunes Store, as are a number of other YouTube-compatible apps.
