    I have just installed redsn0w onto my ipod. All went well.
    I however pressed 'restore backup' on itunes, so my ipod was getting all the old apps and music i had.
    It will now not turn on; I have tried DFU mode, but it seems to not work.
    Please help, I do not want to take it back to the store.

    nah you didnt brick it. Just plug it into your computer, then press and hold the power and home button for 10 seconds. Then just hold the home button until the computer recognizes your device. This means it is in DFU mode and you can try again.

    That didn't work. Thanks for trying though.
    The screen stays black no matter what.

    You're probably in DFU mode, hold the power and home buttons for a while till something happens, don't remember if there is a sound or pic of apple and you should be back.

    That means your not in DFU mode.

    The problem was caused by restoring the backup of my iPod.
