    You're an idiot lol, let it respring.

    Plug iPod in
    Turn off (screen blank)
    Hold both buttons for exactly 10 seconds
    Release the power button, but hold the home button until it pops up in iTunes
    Restore
    Upgrade to 2.x
    Install MobileSubstrate

    Take a deep breath, alright?

    Your iPod touch is not permanently damaged, if that's what you're thinking.

    Place your iPod touch into "DFU Mode" which is a similar mode to Recovery Mode by following one of these three steps listed below:

    1. Hold down Sleep/Wake button and Home button together, until the iPod touch powers off. Once the iPod touch turns on again, let go of the Sleep/Wake button about 1 or 2 seconds later, still holding the Home button. Once plugged in, iTunes will recognize the device is in Recovery Mode.

    2. Open up iLiberty+ and other the Other Tools tab select 'Enter DFU Mode'.

    3. Open up ZiPhone and select Prepare for Upgrade.
