    Ok, I do not want to make this another "iPod wont respond thread" but here is the deal.

    Last night I was pwning with quickpwn for firmware 2.0.2 and there was a part where you had to hold the home button down for a really long period of time. Unfortunatley when the iPod screen showed the quickpwn logo and a spinning wheel under it I let go of the home button and the iPod turned off. Now I cannot turn the iPod on, and it does not respond to anything I do.

    Any suggestions?

    try dfu mode which is what it seems you were trying when you were quickpwning, hold home and power button for like 5 seconds and than hold the home button for 10 with it plugged in so you can tell if it worked. and also im not sure if quickpwn is like winpwn but letting go of the home button shouldnt affect it... in fact your supposed to with winpwn

    Yea I have an idea called DFU
    Its a powerul fuction for these kinds of situations

    1.hold power and home for about 7 seconds.
    2.now hold home and power for about 10 seconds exaculy, then release power and still hold home until your computer reconizes an ipod in dfu mode then restore

    If that soent work restart your computer or use a different usb port

    are you sure i know that itunes would say that firstly but if you keep holding it regardless of that message maybe it will change? if you let go as soon as you see that it may not be going into dfu...
