Hi I need to know how to restore this darn thing with a 57 year lock to manufacture settings without using Itunes.....because my grandfather said I can have it if I can fix the 57 Year Lock. Some how the guy he got it from was putting illegal music and movies and the German Government Locked up to that state.
I need to know how to restore to manufacturing settings. I don't want what ever is on it that is the least of my worries. I went to another forum they said stick the Ipod into DFU mode and use Itunes....does not work, that is a total lie.
I also tried to use Redsn0w and redsn0w jailbroke and tethered it, but tether boot does not work either.

You have to use iTunes. No other way. Did iTunes give you a specific answer when you tried restoring it?

This story seems a bit "off" to me. In any case the other site was right. You need to put the device into recovery or DFU mode then restore it in itunes. Doesnt sound like you have put it into recovery mode when you open itunes to me.
