    I tried jailbreaking my 2g ipod touch using Unofficialsn0w, and everything was going great until it came to restoring the ipod using the jailbroken ipod software. I tried restoring it multiple times but it failed. Then i tried running the RUNME program again and it started restoring, but after the process was done, my Ipod shut off and won't turn back on. Also, my computer doesn't recognize the touch and says the usb device attached to the computer has malfunctioned. My guess is that the files in the touch are corrupt.

    My Ipod is relatively new, and i would appreciate any advice or solutions.

    Hold power + home till the alert disapear, wait 1 sec then release the power button, wait 5~6 sec then release the home button.

    Alas this only gets you back into DFU mode, not what you want when you have finished restoring the jb software.

    I already tried that. The ipod just won't respond to any buttons. I'm just going to the apple store and see what they can do.
