    My ipod touch 2g is on the infinite apple logo reboot. The problem is that my home button does not function (a resistor burnt out while I had the ipod open to clean the screen, hence not being able to go into recovery mode. see picture: http://i34.tinypic.com/dwcjz7.jpg Everything had been functioning fine.

    Itunes does not recognize it, nor does it come up as a USB device. Am I out of luck trying to restore it with the broken home button? Is there a way to fix that broken resistor?

    Send it to Apple. With no chance to enter DFU you are screwed.

    ahh, just lovely. Is there any trick to getting it to be recognized as a normal USB device? The thing charges when I connect it via USB, but it doesn't actually show up as a usable drive.

    I have exactly the same problem, home button not working and stuck on apple logo, this didn't help me but you could try:

    1.) First download the required archive http://www.sendspace.com/file/93fx93
    2.) Extract the archive to the root of your hard drive, should be C:/DFU/
    3.) Connect your iPhone and ignore iTunes
    4.) Goto Start – run
    5.) Next type in “c:/dfu/dfu iBSS.m68ap.RELEASE.dfu”
    6.) Wait for iPhone to show a “white” screen
    7.) Now you may proceed to downgrade!
    **also these files are found in ibrickr’s directory except for the .dfu file**
