I swiped my ipod touch clean to sell it and now its requiring a passcode. How do I clear it? I have tried every password I could imagine and now I am locked out.

    Try and force iPod into Recovery Mode; that will by pass the passcode.



    1. Disconnect the USB cable from the device, but leave the other end of the cable connected to your computer's USB port.



    2. Turn off the device: Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button for a few seconds until the red slider appears, then slide the slider. Wait for the device to turn off.



    3.While pressing and holding the Home button, reconnect the USB cable to the device. The device should turn on.



    4. Continue holding the Home button until you see the "Connect to iTunes" screen. When this screen appears, release the Home button. iTunes should alert you that it has detected a device in recovery mode. Click OK, and then click Restore to restore the device.



    Note: Data will be lost. You may have to repeat the above many times.

    A passcode for what?

    What does this swipe mean in  "I swiped my ipod touch clean to sell it"?

    How did you "swipe" it?
