    Yup, confirmed on iOS 6.1.1, works like a charm.

    Tomjr260 - after many attempts of trying to remember / unlock the restrictions code on my iphone your post finally helped.  iOS 6.1.1 meant that the other suggestions would not work and your simple step-by-step instructions saved me! Thanks so much!

  • suannp Level 1 (0 points)

    Thanks so much Tomjr260 for this "walk-through". I was nervous about fooling with the codes, but I figured I had nothing to lose. At best it would work, at worst I would have to start from scratch.

     

    It was the best! This time, I'll write my restriction code down. (I need it to keep my pesky kid safe.) Two thumbs up!

    Of course, your kids can read this forum also. Or find the instructions elsewhere on the Internet. Which is the general problem with any security system that has a "back door".

    Follow these directions provided by Tomjr260- Great job, THANK YOU!

     

    1) Download iBackupBot [http://www.icopybot.com/itunes-backup-manager.htm]

     

    2) Backup iPhone/iPod/iPad to iTunes

     

    3) Close iTunes (leave your device plugged in to your computer)

     

    4) Open iBackupBot

     

    5) Select your backup from the left column

     

    6) Navigate to "Library/Preferences/com.apple.springboard.plist" (there may be two files named this; try them both) and double-click to open

     

    7) If the backup is from iOS 4.X or lower then you should be able to find "<key>SBParentalControlsPIN</key>" somewhere in this file and your passcode will be below this line.

    If your backup is iOS 5 or higher, then continue on.

     

    8) Look for and change the string for "SBParentalControlsFailedAttempts" to 0

     

    9) Add in "<key>SBParentalControlsPIN</key>

     

              <string>1234</string>" (without the quotes)

    After

              "<dict>

     

                        <key>countryCode</key>

     

                        <string>us</string>

     

              </dict>"

     

    10) Click save

     

    11) Close out of that file

     

    12) Click restore backup/file to iPhone/iPod Touch (the icon of an iPhone and a blue arrow) located under the menu bar in iBackupBot

     

    13) After restore is done and phone restarts the password should be 1234.

    I used BigBopper66's soluition on a Win 7 Machine.

     

    I used iBackupBot trial and the free PLIST editor you can download

    from http://www.icopybot.com/itunes-backup-manager.htm

     

    Followed the instructions and it wored PERFECTLY!

     

    You saved me having to reconfigure this iPad.

     

    Thanks!

    Hi All

     

    Tomjr260 it seems that iBackupBot for Mac free trial now blocks using their program to do this. When I tried it today they said I had to pay for their program. I can't remmeber the exact wording but would allow me to save the changes you have suggested. Unless I am doing something wrong.

     

    Any suggestion?

     

    Thanks so much

    Sorry I mucked up a post earlier by knocking the reply button before I editted it.

     

     

    So iBackupBot for Mac free trial now blocks using their program to do this. When I tried it today they said I had to pay for their program. I can't remmeber the exact wording but would NOT allow me to save the changes you have suggested. Unless I am doing something wrong.

    Tomjr260 Thank you so very much - I was lost without iMessages but your post helped be remove the restrictions on my phone which strangely happened when I changed from a UK SIM to an Egypt SIM.  You are a star!!!

  • rachsaf Level 1 (0 points)

    When i try restoring it keeps saying error-36 why is this happening?

    Your antivirus or firewall is stopping the update to protect you. Try disabling them.

  • Piusfelix Level 1 (0 points)

    I found that iBackupBot free version could not restore the device.

    However you can edit the PLIST with the free PLIST editor,

    then import it into the backup file using iBackupBot.

     

    Then use iTunes to restore the device from the now edited

    backup.  This worked for me two days ago with the most

    recent trial version of iBackupBot.

    Thanks Lawrence all fixed
