Reset passcode without restore using Gecko iPhone Toolkit

Published on March 12, 2014 by Tan Nguyen 1 Comment
Filed under: How-to


All of us often forget things, it could be something small or something unforgettable, and somehow you fail to recall it. Typically, the passcode on your iPhone. There have been a lot of readers sent us email asking about this and in today’s post, we would like to show you a simple solution.

I was browsing online and found a software called Gecko iPhone Toolkit. This is a great tool for those of you who need to reset your iOS passcode without the need to restore it with iTunes. However, there are a few things you must keep in mind.


Support the following devices:

iPhone 3Gs, iPhone 4, iPad 1, iPod Touch 3G, iPod touch 4G. Compatible with iOS 4.0 to 6.x.x.


How to recover your iPhone passcode:


Step 1: Download Gecko iPhone Toolkit for free here

Step 2: Once you finish downloading it, open it up and connect your device to the computer.




Step 3: Choose your device, in this case I’m going to use my iPhone 4 as an example. Click the “Boot” button. A new window will popup telling you to choose a firmware.  Those process will involve redsn0w, when it’s done, just click the “Launch” button. Wait a few minutes for Gecko to read your passcode. Then it will show it to you in the box right under it.



 How to bypass “iPhone disabled”



Beside helping you get your passcode back, this tool also allows you to avoid the ‘iPhone disable”.

Step 1: Move to the second tab and select your device.

Step 2: Click on the “Bypass” button and put your iPhone into DFU mode.

Step 3: Just wait for it to do the rest.


That’s it guys. Just keep in mind that Gecko iPhone Toolkit doesn’t work with iOS 7 devices. Let us know if you have any further questions.

Nice program! Too bad it doesn't work on iOS 7. My cousin managed to forget her password on her iTouch 5, lol

Nevermind, doesn't work with iTouch 5 anyways. I need to learn to read the fine print  :banghead:

I used Joyoshare iPasscode Unlocker to bypass the passcode on my iPhone X. It worked and supported iOS 12.
