Hi,
I have found this forum to be helpful for my first post so im gonna do it again!
My cousins pranked me by putting a restrictions passcode, but it backfired on me and them! THEY DONT REMEMBER IT!! Argh! They tried to put it what they thought was the code, but unfortunately it didnt work! So i thought of formatting my iPad.... I wanted to know what would happen and how do get all my contacts, mail photos, videos, apps etc back while only removing the restrictions passcode!
Thank you

If you have backed up your device to your computer via itunes, you can locate a file on your computer.

 

Macintosh HD > Library > Application Support > App Store - Here you should see a file called "adoption.plist"

Select that file, hold control in the drop down select open with "Text edit"

 

When you open and view this file look for a line of code with the following tags <integer>XXXX</integer>
The four numbers that you will see between these tags is your "restriction passcode"

Remember that number, close the file - and you should be in.

I assumed you had Mac, since you didn't mention

Hopefully you have a backup

 

download: http://www.iphonebackupextractor.com/free-download/?utm_source=blog&utm_medium=article&utm_campaign=pin-jan2014

load your iOS 7/7.1 iTunes backup in the iPhone Backup Extractor and click on top left side 'Utilities' button and choose 'Recover Restrictions PIN

Then press the Start button and start recovering your restrictions code.

It will take a couple of seconds while it tries to find your restrictions code.

Ibackupbot is no longer free-it's $30. My best guess is that I mis-typed my code, and I'm 20 tries deep and still no luck. I'm not willing to pay $30 to regain a four-digit password that I seem to have mis-typed, when the likeliest scenario is that it's one digit off from my intended password, but so far I'm 20 tries deep and no luck. 

I've extracted the restrictionspassword plist using ibackupbot, but it doesn't look like this tutorial tells me it ought to. http://nbalkota.wordpress.com/2014/04/05/recover-your-forgotten-ios-7-restrictions-pin-code/.

I'm also not savvy enough to understand how to use hash files, though I get the general principal thanks to reading a lot of Neal Stephenson. I'm not willing to learn programming in order to fix a mistake that, by any logic other than Apple's, the company that has all my data ought to be able to fix in a jiffy by simple application of my personal information.

 

Is there a faster way than brute force--which could take me up to 1000 tries--that doesn't involve me downloading several separate programs in order to tease out the hash? 

 

UPDATE: There is, and it's available for free at http://ios7hash.derson.us/.

All you need to do as a windows user is download the lastest version of this software and then unzip it and run it. As long as you have a current backup of your phone to itunes it will display the pin:

 

It's called pin finder.
