    what exactly happens when you say, it doesn't restore?
    did you boot it up, and nothing happened?

    Did you DFU+Restore, the jailbroken iPod/iPhone won't restore by clicking restore, you have to be in DFU mode.

    What is recognized in DFU(Recovery)mode, if it was, follow steps.

    1. While holding shift, click on restore.
    2. A window will open, in there find the ORIGINAL 2.2.1 FW.
    3. Click on the FW and the restore should commence and finish properly.
