    Well it obviosly not doing anything right now, you can take a chance and unplug it.
    Ive gotten error 6 before too, i think all i did was unplug my ipod, tried it again and it worked fine.

    i've unplugged it and plugged it back in. its in restore mode.

    should it take this long to restore?
    the apple logo in the middle of the ipod touch screen and in the bottom, the rotating timer is moving.

    Thats how it should look, the connect to itunes screen will appear too. It should take 5-7 min i would say.

    As for you if your touch is stuck in recovery mode use ziphone to jailbreak it again it actually made myn boot up without losing apps etc. but i tried to restore it while it was working in itunes but recieved same old error 6 and now if i jailbreak it again or usee ibrickr it just returns to recovery mode plzzz help me. and im now just stuck in recovery
