First of before I get more comments on this being a lost and found item. Please do not bother to comment on that, for this is not my doing. I am just interested on how this works.

So how did they do this and how can it be undone?



A friend showed this to me. They found this iTouch and said they were able to look at all files and everything was working normally. The next day this showed up "iPod Disabled try again in 22,415,234 minutes".wow 42 years until you can unlock it AHHA Ok that's funny, now it's just a very expensive paper weight. So they tried connecting to iTunes and setting it back to factory settings, turning it on and off, and anything else you can do with out hacking it. They can turn it on and off just fine but get this screen once it boots up. It can die and be charged and still go back to this screen. I'm guessing this is a Find My iPod/Phone App hack? Or a Jail break hack once it connects to a network? I wonder if they have the camera set to on all the time to record people being frustrated with it!? ahha

What do you think and dose anyone know how to set it back to factory settings?

Ok, let's just stop right there. They FOUND the iPod. FOUND it. It's not theirs. It's disabled because the owner did so remotely. Do the right thing and turn it in to Lost and Found at the place it was found, or to the police.


Please verify and include the exact model/year of your Mac and OS X version number (available from "About This Mac", then "More Info" on the Apple menu).

Well obviously, It's not my issue to deal with. I'm more interested on how this works.

I don't see this bread going anywhere worthwhile as the best advice has been given.

I've always wanted to be smart, handsome and modest. But, I guess I'll have to be satisfied with two out of three . . .
