    So I have done everything

    regular restore, DFU, reinstalled itunes, reinstalled drivers.
    EVERYTHING... and sometimes it gets stuck on "preparing ipod for restore" other times it will start to "restore ipod" and the bar will start moving, but it always ends in error "this ipod cannot be restored (unknown error)"

    Nvm, I guess iTunes was downloading a corrupt firmware file.
    I went and found it elsewhere, restored with it.. and now it works.
