Need help with iPod Touch


This isn't really a linux question. I ran event in the summer and someone left there ipod touch behind. I've tried contacting the participants many times without success. I would like to get into the ipod so that I can look around to see if I can find any information and contact the owner directly.

I know that I can do a factory reset on this to bypass the passcode, but I don't want to do that because I have never connected it to my computer before (it's not mine) and I'm pretty sure that if I restore it, it will wipe everything off of it, which defeats the purpose.

Can anyone help me with this? I'm an Android guy, so I have no clue how to try and hack into this. I just know that I'll lock it up if I punch in a code too many times.

Would appreciate any help I can get. I want to get this back to the owner. It's been on my desk for about 4 months now.

If you cannot get past the lock screen ...

sometimes, the old addage, "Finders keepers, losers weepers", still applies.

la vita


4 months? - some stores only give 30 days or less then "lost and found" property then defaults to being theirs to do with whatever they please.

I know that I would be justified in keeping it, but I'm just thinking there is some kid out there without an ipod now.

Just thought I would try. Thanks!

Your mindset is understanding, but,
life is full of disappointments, it is part of growth. Hopefully, his loss will help him, or her to be able to deal with loss properly and will aid them in becoming a more well adjusted adult.
