There is no way to do that unfortunately. You have to put it into DFU mode and then use a computer to restore it. I would suggest trying to find a buddy who will let you use their computer. To DFU the iPod have it plugged into the computer, hold the lock and home buttons until the device shuts off, count to 5 and release the lock button while still holding the home button, a message should pop up on your computer prompting you it is in recovery mode and you have to restore it. Let me know if you have any questions

this didn't hepl tell me an alternative method if possible

abhisek neymar,

@abhisek neymar, just like Jason rightly answered, there is no alternative method. "There is no way to do that unfortunately. You have to put it into DFU mode and then use a computer to restore it." Follow his advise .

oldturkey03,

What happens if that does not shut it off

JACKIE ALLEN,

This happened to mine. I did exactly what he said and it is restoring as I am typing. Thank you so much! This helped and I can't wait even tho it will take an hour or so thanks so much!!(:

Yes, Mac user also need to know this method while reset your iPod because someway iTunes demand for pass code so you need a recovery method without system. Some of mac user had not technical knowledge so they need Mac Tech Support for reset iPod.

3.On your computer go to iTunes and click "Restore iPod"

4. Wait for iPod to restore and enjoy!

Hope this helps

I get a message that I have to restore the ipod before using it with itunes but when I click ok, the restore ipod screen goes away. How can I keep that screen up to restore it?

all you have to do is hold the power button and home button at the same time for ten seconds then let go of the power button but keep holding on to the power button for 10 seconds. then it should restart.
