I restored my iPod Touch from an iTunes backup and my old password no longer works to get into the iPod. Any idea how I can figure out what the new password is? How can I change it back to the old password?
The passcode would be whatever the passcode was at the time of the backup you restored to. When you restore an iOS device from a backup, it puts all the software configuration back on the device, including the passcode that was set at the time.
If you want to get past this passcode, I suggest trying all your most recent passcodes. Be careful though, after a certain number of attempts your iPod may lock you out and prevent you from entering any more passcodes.
You can remove the passcode, but you will have to restore your iPod and you will not be able to restore from a backup.
