    You need to place your iPod in recovery mode and then restore the iPod from backup via iTunes.
    thats the only way I am afraid.

    Apparently, there is a file that handles the passcodes within the file system. If you're jailbroken and have openSHH installed, you can ssh into your device and delete that file. Only problem is, I forgot what it was [​IMG]
