Unlocking the device should be as simple as swiping your finger across the on screen bar that will grant you access to the home screen. If the device is experiencing technical difficulties then it can be rebooted and if this is successful the iPod should continue working as usual.

In order to manually reboot the iPod then follow the following instructions:

  • Hold down both the home button and the screen lock button
  • Keep them held down for around 10-20 seconds
  • Release the buttons when the Apple logo appears on screen

This screen indicates that the device has rebooted itself and it can take several minutes before the usual home screen is displayed.

The other potential problem you may be having with the device is that a password has been installed and you have forgotten it. The best course of action to take here is to get in touch with the manufacturer or an expert retailer to see if they can offer any assistance.

However, if you are referring to the concept of jail-breaking an iPod Touch then this is something different. This is when the operating software of the device is hacked into to allow the owner to install their own apps and features, often without having to pay for them.

This is not deemed as acceptable and is frowned upon by Apple. Although it is not illegal, people must remember that in the event of a jail-broken Apple device malfunctioning no help can be offered the customer service team at Apple. By jail-breaking the device the customer has voided the warranty.
