Just wondering what the difference is...
DFU mode restore vs just shift+click restore.
I believe that DFU puts you into a state where you are forced to restore when you connect to iTunes whereas shift+click is an optional method.
Either will completely wipe your device...
imma not quite sure, but i think DFU mode puts your ipod into some sort of deep sleep, and its like being modifying your computer BIOS, therefore when you restore, it wipes everything and doesnt keep ANYTHING from the old status Please Register or Log in to view images

In reality, DFU is putting your device in a state that allows the Firmware to be upgraded (Device Firmware Upgrade)
Exactly. DFU is meant for updates, while Restore Mode is meant for use with the firmware you're already on.
No.. no... you can get out of DFU Mode just as well as you can get out of recovery mode.
DFU + Restore makes the restore go smoother and ensures that mostly no problems will probably be encountered. Im pretty sure it used to be known as a clean restore.
