So I have an iPod Touch 5th Generation. I managed to get myself locked out enough that it asked me to connect to iTunes.
Now, when I do, it gives me an error saying that my iPod is locked with a passcode and to remove that passcode before it can be used with iTunes.
But...I'm locked out...so there is no way for me to unlock it.
And just a note - the home button is broken, so please dont suggest to me to put it in DFU mode. It's not happenin'.
Place the iPod in recovery mode using one of these programs and then restore via iTunes:
