    Kick it into DFU mode using iLiberty+ or ZiPhone, then restore.

    If the home button is still completely broken, send it into Apple to get repaired.

    Use ZiPhone to put it into Normal mode (under advanced preferences), if that doesn't work try using ZiPhone to put it into Recovery mode, and then restore in iTunes.

    Bring it to Apple after you restore it and set it up as a new iPod, so they will replace it (hopefully). It's going to be a huge problem in the long run, so return it no matter what.

    Go into ZiPhone, and Fix NVRAM. This should fix this problem completely in the future.

    It's under Advanced Options. Make sure you have Ziphone 2.6b

    ziphone isnt finding the ipot, but since it says" Searching for iPhone... Make sure the iPhone is connected to the computer and detected by iTunes." i dont think it would since its in bsd error message, ill download iliberty+ and try it!
