    If you mean that your forgot your restriction passcode, you do the same thing if you forgot your screen-lock passcode.  That is, you need to restore you iPod via iTunes.  WHen you try to restore it, if i asks for your passcode then you will have to place the iPod in recovery mode.  For recovery mode see:

    iPhone and iPod touch: Unable to update or restore

    Please post back if you needed to go in recovery mode since the Apple instruction are unclear.

    To recovery from a lost/forgotten restriction passcode you need to restore your iPod to factory defaults/new iPod. If you restore from backup and the backup has the forgotten restrictions passcode the  unnow restrictions passcode will be restore to the iPod.  This was verified by a user.
