    DFU, turn it off

    when off:

    Hold down the lock/power button at the top for 3 seconds

    Then Without releasing the lock/power button hold the round one at the bottom for 10 sec.

    then release the lock/power button but not the round one, hold for 30 seconds and plug into computer.

    If you are getting the Pwnapple you can restore it from DFU., as stated above:

    open iTunes, connect iPod touch to the computer using USB cable, put into DFU mode and restore.
