    if you dont know what ssh is than I guess you dont have OpenSSH installed and will have to restore. Yes you will lose everything and you will have to jailbreak/unlock all over again.

    CLick the restore button in iTunes and set up as a NEW phone(very important)

    also, you could ask your cousin if he remembers ANY of the numbers and you could try entering all possible combinations of passwords(could take a while. 10x10x10x10=100,000 possible combinations. lol)

    DO NOT USE PWNAGE!!! It's is ONLY for the iPhone. Try iLiberty, it's iLiberty and iPlus in one. Nice little package.

    Dont you ZiPhone it crashes your Itouch.
    My best vote is for the iLiberty+ it works REALLY fast and ive used it 10+ times all working.

    iLiberty is a two in one package, especially built for all versions of the iPod touch, ZiPhone was built for the iPhone, but you can experiment with both.
