  • HT4113 is there anyway to enter passcode after it says ipad disabled?  I don't want to restore it.

    My daughter entered the wrong passcode on the ipad and now it is disabled.  Is there anyway to enter passcode now even after ipad says  "ipad disabled."  I don't want to restore it and lose everything.

    You can restore from your backup on your computer or iCloud.

    You may have to do this several times.
    Saw this solution on another post about an iPad in a school environment. Might work on your iPad so you won't lose everything.

    ‘iPad is disabled’ fix without resetting using iTunes
    Today I met my match with an iPad that had a passcode entered too many times, resulting in it displaying the message ‘iPad is disabled – Connect to iTunes’. This was a student iPad and since they use Notability for most of their work there was a chance that her files were not all backed up to the cloud. I really wanted to just re-activate the iPad instead of totally resetting it back to our default image.
    I reached out to my PLN on Twitter and had some help from a few people through retweets and a couple of clarification tweets. I love that so many are willing to help out so quickly. Through this I also learned that I look like Lt. Riker from Star Trek (thanks @FillineMachine).
    Through some trial and error (and a little sheer luck), I was able to reactivate the iPad without loosing any data. Note, this will only work on the computer it last synced with. Here’s how:
    1. Configurator is useless in reactivating a locked iPad. You will only be able to completely reformat the iPad using Configurator. If that’s ok with you, go for it – otherwise don’t waste your time trying to figure it out.
    2. Open iTunes with the iPad disconnected.
    3. Connect the iPad to the computer and wait for it to show up in the devices section in iTunes.
    4. Click on the iPad name when it appears and you will be given the option to restore a backup or setup as a new iPad (since it is locked).
    5. Click ‘Setup as new iPad’ and then click restore.
    6. The iPad will start backing up before it does the full restore and sync. CANCEL THE BACKUP IMMEDIATELY. You do this by clicking the small x in the status window in iTunes.
    7. When the backup cancels, it immediately starts syncing – cancel this as well using the same small x in the iTunes status window.
    8. The first stage in the restore process unlocks the iPad, you are basically just canceling out the restore process as soon as it reactivates the iPad.
    If done correctly, you will experience no data loss and the result will be a reactivated iPad. I have now tried this with about 5 iPads that were locked identically by students and each time it worked like a charm.

    Try it and good luck. You have nothing more to lose if it doesn't work for you.

  • I changed the password to my ipod but it isn't working and I don't want to restore it. Is there a way of getting rid of the pass word or un-disabling my device?????

    Connect the iOS device to your computer and try to make a backup.
    iOS: How to back up
    Then restore via iTunes. Place the iOS device in Recovery Mode if necessary to allow the restore.
    If recovery mode does not work try DFU mode.

    To restore from backup see:
    iOS: How to back up
    If you restore from iCloud backup the apps will be automatically downloaded. If you restore from iTunes backup the apps and music have to be in the iTunes library since synced media like apps and music are not included in the backup of the iOS device that iTunes makes.
    You can redownload iTunes purchases by:
    Downloading past purchases from the App Store, iBookstore, and iTunes Store

  • HT1212 my ipod screen is cracked and i can't sync my ipod on to itunes becauseit it is locked with a password and i can't enter the password because the heat sensor is messed up and i don't want t restore it and lose everything so how can i get passed tha

    All you can do is to restore and thus erase the iPod unless you can get a data recovery company to preserve the data.
    Place the iOS device in Recovery Mode and then connect to your computer and restore via iTunes. The iPod will be erased.

    For a lock-out, you need to connect it to the syncing computer and "Restore" it.
    The Restore option is on itunes on the computer on the first tab, when you have the ipad connected.

  • My Hotspot stopped working and I don't want to restore!

    Hi there,
    So the Hotspot function on my iPhone 5 suddenly stopped working for me one day. I used to use it all the time for work by just plugging it into my laptop. Now when I plug it into my laptop, nothing happens and it wont connect... not even the blue bar appears!
    I have tried to fix it by reseting the network settings and downloading latest software. However the only way I find that gets it to work is by restoring my iPhone to its factory settings. However, I have done this but then restored it again from a recent backup as I dont want to lose all my data and messages.
    Does anyone know how I could get my hotspot to work without restoring it?
    Cheers,
    John

  • I have a 5th Gen iPod Touch. I went in my messages to save a video in my camera roll. The video is not in my camera roll but my memory keeps on going down and I don not want to restore my iPod. Please help me

    I have a 5th Gen iPod Touch. I went in iMessage to save videos that were sent to me in my camera roll. The videos do not appear in my camera roll but my memory keeps on going down. I do not know how to solve the problem. I do not want to restore my iPod but I want to get my memory back. Please Help ME

    Connect the iPod to your computer and look at the storage used by the various categories as shown in the colored bargarph in iTunes.
    Come back with the results.
    An "other" larger tha about 1 1/2 usually indicates that the "other" includes corrupted files.
    First try:
    "First you go settings/general/usage/music/then left swipe over music and press delete and you would think it deletes your music but it doesn't instead it deletes your other but make sure your ipod is connected to a computer while doing this"
    as recommended by:
    How do I get rid of "other" storage: Apple Support Communities
    Next, usually restoring from backup eliminated the corrupted files. However, sometimes restoring to factory settings/new iPod is required.
    To restore from backup see:

    To restore to factory settings/new iPod see:

  • I updated last night and now my ipod touch is stuck in recovery mode and I don't want to do a factory restore!

    How do I get out of recovery mode, that my ipod touch suddenly went into, after updating last night? It does not recognize my ipod anymore and I don't want to restore it back to factory conditions. I have tons of things on the ipod and don't want to lose them! Is there any other way to get out of this 'recovery mode'??

    No. You have to restore. To allow the restore try the following:
    - A reset.
    Reset iPod touch: Hold down the On/Off button and the Home button at the same time for at
    least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears.
    - Manually placing the iPod in Recovery Mode
    - Placing the iPod in DFU mode.
    How to put iPod touch / iPhone into DFU mode « Karthik's scribblings
    - If you can't turn the iPod off, let the battery fully drain. After charging for at least an hour try the above again.
    - Try on another computer.
    - Make an appointment at the Genius Bar of an Apple store.
