Alright so I just recently jailbroke my iPod Touch 3G with 3.1.2 and Blackrain and it worked completely fine. I was not aware of the shutdown problem with the restore loop. Yesterday, I shut it down and tried to reboot and it was stuck on the Itunes+USB screen, but when I plugged it in, it was recognized by iTunes and I got the "You must restore etc." message. From here I just launched Blackrain again and it fixed the problem pretty easily. Here's the problem, today, upon starting my iPod, I got the same problem. Naturally, I tried plugging it into my laptop to do the blackrain fix again. However, this time, my iPod is not recognized by my computer or iTunes, so Blackrain does not work. I'm guessing it's not in DFU mode, but I've tried literally 30 times with slightly different techniques I found searching for solutions, but none of them work. I did once get the iPod recognized for a second, because Windows failingly searched for drivers (?) but after that I've got nothing. Sorry about the long read I'm just trying to provide as much information I can, you guys know anything that could help me?
