Is it possible to jailbreak passcode locked ipod touch 4g?
Guess title says it all, I'm trying to help a friend who just recovered his "borrowed" Ipod Touch 4G from his ex, and she placed a passcode on it but won't say what it is. I've read that it's possible to bypass the passcode if the Ipod has been jb'd, but I don't know if it's possible to jb with it without knowing the passcode. Of course we don't have access to her computer, which it was first synced to and no, he's not trying to lose all his music, photos, etc. either.
If anyone could confirm that he's just screwed, or if there is a way around losing his files, please let me know.

Restore is best bet n if it's her music she loaded and paid for and it's tied to her account its Hers
Yeah, I'm thinking it's a lost cause as well at this point - thanks for the response, much appreciated. Although, next time you respond to a question, you may want to consider sticking to the facts alone. This really isn't the place for your uninformed moral and legal judgments. Thanks again

I'm afraid I'm not able to send PM's or Emails just yet, I'm too new to the forum. If you would like, you can email me direct at skezir(at)gmail(dot)com. At this point, we can't even reset it to factory, it is not being detected by my mac os x 10.6, Vista, or 7 machines. It does say Enter Passcode when it's started, and I've tried putting it in restore mode by holding down the home button while connecting it to the computer (I do get the 'connect to itunes' picture, but none of the computers detect it at all. I'm wondering if it may just be a bad cable? I've noticed that there are only 9 gold pins on the male end that mates with the Ipod - does that sound right? The Ipod female slot looks like it has all 30? pins. Anyway, any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks

Negative ghostrider. Computer did not see ipod. Tried multiple cords/multiple USB ports and tried my girlfriends computer. And it was hard to tell if if was definetly JB or not cause it would still be locked after reboot so I couldnt see if Cydia was installed or not. Doesn't matter now. I gave up yesterday and just restored with new firmware. Oh well............thanx for the help though
