iPod wont get in DFU nor Recovery mode. Please help!
I work with iPhones all the time, but this chick I fixed an iPhone for asked me if I could fix his sons ipod which has been disabled by his little cousin after trying to guess the passcode. Or at least thats the story I got from her. Anyways, I said -yeah I can do it... assuming it was the same thing as an iphone on which I just do the power and home button hold thingy to get it into dfu and then just restore.
The weird thing is that it wont do it! I know both buttons work. But if its on and I hold them both for over a minute, it will never do a soft reset as any iphone would. Then if I slide to turn it of, hold the home button and plug it to the computer, it will turn on normally to the disabled screen. I dont understand. I know the home button work cause if I lock the screen and press it, it will light up again. So it works. Has anyone gone through this issue?
Also, I dont know whether its the first one or 2nd gen ipod. It does not have a camera tho.
Well, any help will be appreciated !!
Oh, yeah. The bad part is this kid's computer went bad. So cant go that way.
